Fight Back | Devotional by Mary Pinckney

Reward the LORD, who’s my rock. He trains my palms for warfare and offers my fingers ability for battle. Psalm 144:1 (NLT)

Day by day you’ll face challenges that attempt to transfer you away from God’s plan and function on your lives. You can be tempted to behave out of character. You can be tempted to offer in to the satisfaction of your personal hearts; counting on yourselves relatively than totally counting on God. Sadly, all of those choices will put you ready to lose the battle.

In case you are to see victory over the obstacles you might be at the moment dealing with, it’ll take you studying the battle technique from the one who is aware of greatest. God has strategic weapons to dismantle each assault of the enemy. We discover this true all through the Outdated Testomony readings.

Joshua gained the battle of Jericho by marching across the metropolis 7 occasions, then releasing a loud shout. Gideon was instructed he had too many males for the battle. He was then instructed to take 300 males with him. As they went blowing their trumpets, the Lord confused the opposing military they usually started to battle themselves. Jehoshaphat was instructed by the Prophet of the Lord, you’ll not must battle on this battle, the Lord will battle for you. They proceeded to battle worshipping their God and the opposite military started to destroy themselves.

As you may see from these accounts, God doesn’t battle like we battle. His weapons are a lot larger than ours. They’re weapons of mass destruction; tearing down each stronghold, piercing between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost ideas and needs.

As we speak, as an alternative of cowering all the way down to the enemy of doubt, worry and insecurity. As an alternative of giving into the temptation to stop. As an alternative of permitting the whispers of the naysayers cease you in your tracks, I encourage you to battle again! You have to stand and gird your self with the total armour of God. Endure hardness as a superb soldier and see these very obstacles demolished in your path.

Once you enable God to be your protection, your sturdy tower, He can good all issues that concern you. In spite of everything, He has already outfitted you with the weapons that work; prayer, worship, and the sword of the spirit which is the Phrase of God.

Do your battle in your knees right now. Do your battle in worship. God will battle for you.

Father, thank You for instructing our palms to warfare. Too typically, we battle from a spot of our personal power not totally counting on, leaning into, and trusting You. As we start to alter course, thank You for Your persistence with us. Thank You on your energy being made good in our occasions of weaknesses. Could we glance to You after we are weak to assist us win the victory in each space of our lives. In Jesus identify Amen.
