This is one of the toughest battles of your life. You’ve been dodging bullets and avoiding canons. You started off with a wonderful group of soldiers right by your side. As things got tough, they dropped off one by one until you’re on the front line by yourself. They didn’t want to fight with you. You’re on your own. This place you are in now is not where you are supposed to be and you can’t move backwards. You’re surrounded by the enemy on all sides so the only way to become safe is to keep pushing forward. Right now you don’t seem to understand what is going on.
Here’s the issue: When you keep fighting a battle that is no longer yours, that’s where you find yourself in a tough spot. Who is to say that God isn’t already fighting the battle for you, but he’s just waiting on you to be still and let Him take control. We all know the infamous saying, “The Battle is Not Yours, It’s the Lord’s.” Well this may be one of those instances. Sometimes God makes us fight battles to see if we are truly on the front line for him. He tests us to see if we can advance in our Spiritual Military Rank. Those battles are our personal trials to overcome and win. Other times, God puts us in these tough fights because he wants us to get a few scratches and bruises. Why? No pain, No gain. God makes no mistakes on who he throws on the battlefield. He gives his toughest battles to his strongest soldiers. At times, he lets us lose a few battles so that we can TRUST him enough to win the war. He wants us to know, and I quote one of my favorite Donald Lawrence songs “I am God all by myself, I don’t need any help.”
You see… We get complacent in thinking that since we won the last war, we can do it again on our own especially when our fellow soldiers have seemed to run away. God wants us to know that He is still there and He is in control. You prayed and fought, got a few scratches along the way. Soldier, it’s time to let the Commander in Cheif take control. Put this one in God’s Hands. He won’t fail.
Love you all! Xo.
