So you, and I and we and us, we can’t throw in the towel and give up even though we might feel there’s nothing more to hold on to or hope for.
Thing is, it’s a new day and perhaps it will hold the miracle we’ve been anticipating. We serve a creator God who doesn’t work on our timeline. He works on His! We live in a fallen world, a world where sin is thick and wild, and we see the effects of it in on our world at this season of time. Fear and worry are the enemy’s tactics to weaken and defeat us and right now, both are so prevalent and highly contagious among us. I’m so thankful God is on our side and doing battle for us against this demonic pressure that sneaks in to trip us up.
We need to pray for deliverance and at the same time, as believers in a Sovereign God, remember we have an eternal hope to hold on to. No, we don’t know the outcome, yet still, we hang on to our solid trust in our Saviour, and our deepening faith in our faithful God, that all is well with our soul, never giving in or giving up!
Today, we face a global battle and a spiritual warfare of overwhelming proportions of fear and worry on all fronts, but Paul reminds us in Ephesians 6:10-12,
“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armour of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”
So friends, let’s keep on keeping on staying strong in our faith! Trust the Lord and fight this battle with the efficient and powerful “spiritual weapon” of Peace and a sound stable mind.
