Stop Fighting

There are some battles in life where we are going to have to fight.  There are some things we are going to have to take a stand for, and always fight for what is right.  Then there are some things we don't need to do anything about, and this can be difficult because we may want to fight and feel like we need to fight, but we just have to be still, and allow God to work it all out.  If we try to fight battles that are we are not supposed to fight, we will lose every time.  

The Scripture reminds us that, you shall not need to fight in this battle; set yourselves, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord with you, O Judah and Jerusalem: fear not, nor be dismayed; tomorrow go out against them: for the Lord will be with you.  I encourage you today that thing you are going through stop trying to fight it, for you don't need to fight in this battle.  I know it is rough and tough, but stop fighting stop preparing for war, and be still and let God fight your battles.  You don't have to be afraid and you don't have to worry when you allow God to fight your battles.  As long as you are fighting God won't fight, but when you let go and let God, He will step in and take care of your situation.  

Give Him the kids, the job, the finances, and your relationship.  No more sleepless nights, tear stained pillows, and fear and worry of what you have to face tomorrow, God is now fighting your battles so all fear and worry are gone. God wants you to see Him get the victory in your home, on your job, in your finances, in your school.  Be still, don't be afraid, don't worry, stop fighting, and let God fight for you, and when you let God fight for you, you will get the Victory.  

God is fighting my battle and I know, "It's My Year To Get My Thing From My God!"  


Lord I surrender all of my fights to you, and I want you to get the victory for me.  In Jesus Name Amen.
