The Lord Is With You In The Fight

It should be no secret that from time to time in our lives we are going to have to fight our way through some things.  There have been fights that we have lost, but there are also some fights we have won, and the ones that we obtained victory in are the ones that we allowed God to fight for us.  Not every fight is our fight to fight, some fights we must leave to God to fight them for us. In God calling Jeremiah to be a spokesman for Him, God reminded Him that He knew him from the womb, and that He had placed a call on his life, and that he would never have to worry about being alone, because God would always be with Him.

God also told Jeremiah that, they will fight against you, but they shall not prevail against you, for I am with you, declares the Lord, to deliver you.  I encourage you today to walk in the calling that God has for your life, and do not worry about those that want to fight against you, because you have a promise from God that they shall not prevail.  Do not be afraid to walk in your calling, but also know that walking in your calling means that there are going to be some that are going to come against you, but you have the assurance that God is with you, and He will deliver you, and that is enough to encourage you to face every enemy and situation with confidence that it will work in your favor.  There are going to be some fights that I will have to fight, but there are some fights that I will have to let God fight for me, and since He called me, He will keep me in the midst of it all.

Since I know that I have been called by God, and He is with me every step of the way I have no doubt, “It’s My Year To Get My Thing From My God!”


Lord, thank you for being there with and for me, when the enemy tried to fight against me.  Thank you for not allowing them to prevail, and thank you for giving me the victory.  In Jesus name, Amen.
