We have all been to war at one time or another. We may not have enlisted in the military, but we all have been on the battlefield. Battling all kinds of issues like relationships, drugs, unkind thoughts, abuse, and we don’t know how to conquer them, and move forward.
Some of us have been battling so long, we don’t know how to use the weapons God gave us, to win the battle. God cares for us therefore, he wants us to give him everything that concerns us. He has promised to give us rest, if we come to him.
We try to fight our battles, but they are not ours to fight. They are the Lord’s battles, to bring him honor and glory. We are to be still, and trust that he will do what he said he will do.
Fight all your battles on your knees, and you will win, every time,
