For Your Battle…

| | |

I am praying for you.

The you who is reading this blog post.

You who are fighting the battles of this life…

You who have lost a job, a loved one, your health.

You who are dealing with uncertainty, becoming a care-giver, suffering loss.

You who are battling the enemy of our souls as He roars his lies and spews his venom.

You who are folding laundry, washing dishes, and playing with toy cars.

You who are longing to hold a baby in your womb or arms.

You who do not know which way to go.

You who are watching a loved one choose a way contrary to God’s way.

You who are waiting for God to move and fighting doubt.

I am praying for you.

I am praying that you know God has made a way for you.

That the battle is not yours, but it is the Lord’s.

I am praying that you will have the audacious faith of a shepherd boy.

The boy who cared more about His God’s reputation than his very life.

That you will stand before the giants in your life and speak the truth.

That it isn’t by sword or spear, but by God’s spirit that the battle will be won.

That you will stand with Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego and say with them

Our God is able, but even if He does not we refuse to bow to anyone or anything else.

The battle is won my friends. The battle is the Lord’s.

Will you walk in humble obedience each step of the way so that God can use you?
