Life is a constant battle…
Everyday we are faced with battles on every side. There is a battle raging over our attention, our priorities, our commitments and most of all our eternal destinies.
Everyday is a life lived with daily challenges and battles that needs to be fought. In all life’s battles, we are expected to win but doing this in our own strength will surely bring us to defeat.
How can we stay strong in facing all life’s battle?
It is by depending on God alone. David mentioned in Psalm 144:1 – “Praise be to the Lord my Rock, who trains my hands for war and my fingers for battle”.
He acknowledges that God is the rock on which He stands and not on his own abilities and strength. As I meditate on this verse, I have learned that it is God who helps us fight our battles. All we have to do is to submit this battle to God and victory will surely be won.
So, what are your battles these days? Are you tired of fighting for it everyday and not having the assurance of victory? Are you fighting for a battle over your family or your children? Are you fighting a battle over a health problem? Are you fighting a battle over financial issues? It’s time for you to submit that battle to God… start by fighting not on your human strength and abilities, but on PRAYER.
2 Chronicles 20:15~ He said: “Listen, King Jehoshaphat and all who live in Judah and Jerusalem! This is what the LORD says to you: ‘Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God’s.
Always remember that we can always be strong in the battle because it is God who will be fighting for us.
