There are battles you will have to fight, when you accepted the gift of life that God was offering to you through His son, He never promised that there would be no storms and no battles. Luckily, the battles He is calling you to fight, He promises to fight with us, and can I inform you…He never loses.
The Israelites were charged by God to do battle with the Hittites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizziets, Hivites, and the Jebusites. Not only were they going to have to battle those 6 cities, any other city that refused to make peace with them would have to be fought. God was requiring His chosen people to do battle.
“Attention, Israel. In a few minutes you’re going to do battle with your enemies. Don’t waver in resolve. Don’t fear. Don’t hesitate. Don’t panic. God, your God, is right there with you, fighting with you against your enemies, fighting to win.” Deuteronomy 20:3-4, The Message
The children of Israel, after coming out of Egypt, spending forty years in the wilderness, when being lead into the promised land, were told that they would have to fight these cities, some of which were referred to as “giants”. What “giants” is God requiring you to fight? When God has you go up against something that is keeping you from His best, know that God may be with you and may fight with you, but you will also have to fight. You will not be allowed to sit on the sidelines and watch.
The battles that we fight, we don’t have to fight alone, and the best part is with God on our side, we have the ability to win! Comments solicited and appreciated! Be sure to follow this blog and speaking of following…follow me on Twitter!
