The Lord’s Battle
1 Samuel 17:47 (NLT) – And everyone assembled here will know that the Lord rescues his people, but not with sword and spear. This is the Lord’s battle, and he will give you to us!”
Christians need to heed the word of the Lord when facing struggles and battles. God wants us to let go of our battles and by faith let Him be the victor. Many of our battles in life, like addictions, desires and relationships, are lost when we try to do it without God.
Psalm 24:8 (KJV) – Who is this King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle.
Allow God to make your decisions regarding wants and feelings. Do not let the enemy get you down. Don’t let the enemy confuse you into thinking you have lost. Spiritual battles are hard for our finite minds to grasp. Often, we need to stop talking and let our Spirit do the walking.
Deuteronomy 3:18 (NKJV)
18 “Then I commanded you at that time, saying: ‘The Lord your God has given you this land to possess. All you men of valor shall cross over armed before your brethren, the children of Israel.
