6. He Fights our Battles
Are you facing a difficult scenario right now?
Do you need extra help to emerge victorious?
This morning I am dealing with a situation I cannot disclose, but it happened overnight and is out of my control because it concerns an adult member of our family. However, I know there is no battle my loving heavenly Father cannot fight. I am claiming Romans 8:37: “Now, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.” The Greek word here for conqueror actually means to “gain a decisive victory.” When we ask for God’s intervention in a situation, the odds are overwhelmingly for us, not against us.
We cannot lose.
Our heavenly Father loves us enough to carry us through the battles of life. He isn’t distant and removed when we war through problems. If we’ll let Him, he tells us to step aside so He can dual with whatever is trying to take us, or a family member down. “The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still” (Exodus 14:14).
After almost three years of co-hosting the “A Time to Dream” radio show, featuring people’s powerful testimonies, I have heard story-after-story from individuals who have overcome the worst of circumstances—like drug addiction, abandonment, and abuse. One woman had a gun pointed at her head, and in the midst of this life and death moment, she simply cried out the name of Jesus. That’s all God needed to hear. Mysteriously, her assailants ran, and she was rescued. The woman sharing her story figured the attackers most of seen an angel standing behind her.
All of our guests want to share openly about their past life because God fought their battle, and they gained a decisive victory over what tried to destroy them.
Sometimes all we need to do is admit the battle is too much for us. That’s when we call upon the divine General and retreat from the front line, so He can activate His army to fight against what seems unconquerable.
Our loving God does not want us to go it alone.
Today, will you admit you need Him? Cry out for help, then watch Him fight on your behalf.
“For you equipped me with strength for the battle; you made those who rise against me sink under me” (Romans 8:39)
