I hate conflict.
I’m one of those wimpy people that would rather get the raw end of the deal than have to confront someone about the discrepancy.
My husband, on the other hand, is a natural born problem-solver.
“You can’t achieve harmony without facing some hostility.”
Yeah, yeah. I get the point. But it doesn’t make me want to tackle the challenge any more.
But when it comes to spiritual warfare, we really have no choice.
John White author of “The Fight” says, “If you are serious about Christ being your Lord and God, you can expect opposition.“
And student Timothy heard the same message from his mentor Paul, “All who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will be persecuted” (2 Timothy 3:12).
I hear this, but yet, cower underneath my quilt of complacency, hoping that the enemy won’t notice my bulge.
Maybe a big part of the problem is not realizing the kind of power that I have.
“The reason why many fail in battle is because they wait until the hour of battle, The reason why others succeed is because they have gained their victory on their knees long before the battle came…Anticipate your battles; faith them on your knees before temptation comes, and you will always have victory.” – R.A. Torrey
Can you faithe the might of the Father to be your strength?
Or will your lack of faith default another victory to the evil one?
“Father, be my strength.”
Receive the strong power that He is waiting to surge through you.
