Galatians 6:9 “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.”
There have been many battles coming against us but He is building character and training up warriors continuously.
James 1:2-6a “Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt.”
His plans will NEVER be thwarted.
Job 42:2 “I know that you can do all things; no purpose of yours can be thwarted.
He plants His desires within our hearts when we delight in Him.
Psalm 37:4 “Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart.”
He moves His will forward. He goes with us before the battles and He stands with us in the battle and every time we come out victorious. As a friend once shared with me, “He has not asked, or requested, us to be strong and courageous but He has commanded us to be.”
Joshua 1;9 “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”
So, let’s take comfort knowing His truth, putting on His armor, and trusting in HIS plan;
Ephesians 6:11 “Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.”
Isaiah 54:17 “No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue [that] shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This [is] the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness [is] of me, saith the LORD.”
Did you read that? No weapon formed against us will prevail! Not one will prevail as He goes before us. So do not grow weary and remember the battle belongs to the Lord. He is with us wherever we go.
2 Chronicles 20:6 ““LORD, the God of our ancestors, are you not the God who is in heaven? You rule over all the kingdoms of the nations. Power and might are in your hand, and no one can withstand you.”
We need to lean not on our own understanding but in all our ways we need to be acknowledging Him knowing He is making the paths straight.
Proverbs 3:5&6 “Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.”
May we be daily feeding ourselves with the TRUTH of HIS word is as His truth is what will carry us through any trial in life. God’s Word is powerful and rich with practical principles applicable to all situations and matters of life.
