“Also in every city he put shields and spears, and made them very strong, having Judah and Benjamin on his side.” (2 Chronicles 11:12)
Are you ready? They’re coming. No matter your age or status, as a follower of Christ, you will face battles. Sometimes these battles are unexpected and painful. Many times the battle will rage inside your heart and mind unknown to those around you. However they may come, don’t be caught off guard. Instead, be ready to hold fast to the One who can help you endure.
(Ephesians 6:10-11) “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.”
Jesus, Himself, assured us that we would have trials, yet He did not leave it at that. Instead He said, “But take heart, because I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33) What an encouragement to know that we can take our stand against the enemy knowing that Christ has already insured his defeat. As we stand in Christ, we will find strength for the battle and victory in the end.
Be ready as a follower of Jesus to endure trials, tribulations and battles.
Dear God, I praise You for all that You have done for me. As I step out to serve You, help me to be ready for the battles. May I look to You for strength and wisdom. Give me patience and help me to endure to the end. Teach me in the midst of the battle to trust in You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
