The Lord Is With You In The Fight
“They will fight against you, but they shall not prevail against you, for I am with you, declares the Lord, to deliver you.” Jeremiah 1:19 (ESV)
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.
Good And Pleasant
"Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!" Psalm 133:1
Each of us at one time in our lives had to deal with a person who for whatever the reason rubbed us the wrong way. There are those on our jobs or school that for some reason or another we just find it difficult to get along with them. We try all that we know, and still we cannot find common ground.
God Is On Your Side
"What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?" Romans 8:31
We can be as nice as we want to be to people and do the right things towards them, and we are still going to have some people against us. No matter how much we follow the rules, there are going to be some things that come against us. It is in the times when things and people are coming against we may begin to wonder who is on our side. The people who are supposedly close to us will turn on us, and before we know it we are fighting against those who were once on our side.
Call On The Name Of The Lord
"But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall." Malachi 4:2
For those of us who truly love The Lord there is no doubt that He has done great things in our lives. We have discovered that simply being in His presence is enough to destroy yokes, and heal physically and mentally, and we have also discovered that there is power in His name. There have been times when we did not know what to do, and it is was in our distress that we called on the name of The Lord, and just at the mention of His name we felt the weight being lifted off of our shoulders.
