In life we are going to have our battles that we will have no choice but to fight. There are going to be some battles that will take more effort than others, but we fight the battle with the intentions of winning. There are some battles that we fight that feel like we are facing them all alone, and it is difficult to fight when you feel like no one is fighting with us. When we do prevail in a battle we must realize that no matter who was fighting with us, the only way we achieved the victory is because The Lord was on our side fighting for us.
The Scripture reminds us that, the king is not saved by his great army; a warrior is not delivered by his great strength. I encourage you today to remember that you are not saved by how many people you have around you or by being a great warrior, the only way you have the victory in any battle is because The Lord is with you. The things that you face on a daily basis you do not have the wisdom or knowledge to be able to handle any of them, it is only because t=The Lord is with you that you are able to make it through the things you encounter. The doors that are opened for you, are not opened simply because of your intelligence, but because The Lord is with you.
There is not a step you take in your life and there is not a victory you achieve without The Lord working on your behalf. Since you know it is The Lord who is with you every step of the way, never cease to thank and praise God for His presence in your life. I know that I could not make it one second in a day without The Lord’s presence in my life, and I know that every victory I have won is because of The Lord that is with me.
Since I know that The Lord is always with me I have no doubt, “It’s My Year To Get My Thing From My God!”
Every victory I have every achieved is because you O Lord was on my side fighting for me. I give you all the glory for all that you have done and are doing in my life. Thank you Lord. In Jesus Name Amen.
