Have you ever been in a fight where the odds are stacked up against you, the person might be bigger, stronger, taller, tougher, and probably will knock the taste out of your mouth. But you decided win or lose you are in it to win, and to the end. Did you know that, we are in a fight every day, with the spirits in us, we have the good and the evil, sweet and bitter, love and hate; the sad thing is the one that wins or dominates, dictates the course for our lives.
Paul sums it up,in Romans 7:14-25 For we know that the law is spiritual, but I am carnal, sold under sin. For what I am doing, I do not understand. For what I will to do, that I do not practice; but what I hate, that I do. If, then, I do what I will not to do, I agree with the law that it is good. But now, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me. For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh) nothing good dwells; for to will is present with me, but how to perform what is good I do not find. For the good that I will to do, I do not do; but the evil I will not to do, that I practice. Now if I do what I will not to do, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me. I find then a law, that evil is present with me, the one who wills to do good. For I delight in the law of God according to the inward man. But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. O wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? I thank God—through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, with the mind I myself serve the law of God, but with the flesh the law of sin.
However, as Christians we have the ultimate advantage, and we will be victorious, and triumphant every time if we follow the Gods plan.
Here is His plans:
(1) You must realize the battle or fight is not ours, it’s Gods, (Joshua 23:10;Deuteronomy 3:22; 1 Samuel 17:47; 2 Chronicles 20:15,the list goes on).
(2)Greater is He who is in you, than he that is in the world.(1 John 4:4).
(3)You must remain in righteousness, so that God can fight and deliver you(2 Samuel 22:18-21).
(4)According to Ephesians 6:12,’we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, powers, the rulers of darkness of this world, and spiritual wickedness in high places’. Ecclesiastes 9:11-12 tells us ,’the battle is not for the strong’,plus a few other facts on life. Allow God to fight, and stop depending on your flesh or strength 2 Chronicles 32:8.
Now that you see who you are fighting, do you really think you stand a chance, without God fighting for you. Hey if you do good luck, I am depending on God.
Allow God to teach your hands to war, and your fingers to fight(Psalm 144:1). I use my hands to pick up the Bible, and my fingers to turn the pages of the bible to the scripture, chapter and verse that will replace the enemies thoughts of defeats, failure, lies and propaganda that he uses to distort and taint the mind. Then my faith in God, plus my prayers. I can’t lose.
Don’t try to fight the devil on your own, he will knock the daylight out of you, he will never touch you where two or three of you are gathered in Jesus Name, plus touching and agreeing, why? because Jesus is there in the midst(Matthew 18:20).
Listen to win you need Jesus, He is the only way to God (John 14:6),please try Him, you will not be disappointed, just go to the top of this blog to the salvation page and follow the instructions.
I thank God for you and pray that He will bless, guide and lead you down the right path, I give Him the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me as a righteous vessel, to bring you his message, in Jesus Name I pray, Amen.
