What battles have you faced already in this short New Year?
Are you still motivated and focused in 2021 or have you already thrown in the towel? Remember it’s not how we start this race but it’s how we finish it that counts. The battles that I am thinking about are not necessarily about diets, food or fasting fads, exercise etc.
But rather inner battles of the mind, heart and spirit.
Life tosses our way many mind games, like our emotions and mental battles which tend to throw us off course, but stay focused with willful determination to win the victory. In other words, we make such choices that can either make us or break us.
Two examples I see are King David and King Saul ( 1 & 2 Samuel) in the Old Testament. The pride, lust, greed, and power became a demise. All of us face such desirable temptations no matter how strong or spritual we think we are. Even Jesus himself was faced with such temptation, but he did not give in to the enemies wishes and schemes.
Remember friend “The Battle is the Lord’s ” so let it go and God will fight your battles for you!
“It’s not by might, nor by power, but My Spirit say the Lord”.
“Our God, will you not judge them? For we have no power to face this vast army that is attacking us. We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you.” 2 Chronicles 20:12 NIV
Make some time to pray alone with the Lord, not in a ritualistic way, but as a person of valor. Believing in faith, trust Him to pull you from the trap the enemy has set for you. “For greater is He (Christ)thatvis in you, than he that is in the world.” 1 John 4:4.
It is here that you will find peace and rest for your soul as you overcome the battle in prayer.
Have a victorious week day and coming month my friend.
“If God is for us who can be against us”…
“We have been made more than conquerors in Jesus Christ” Romans 8:31,37
