WAR

                                                 

Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always.  Remember the wonders he has done.  (Ps 105: 4,5)

We are at WAR!  The battle is one many of us face daily.....

Discouragement sets in.

Defeat seems to overcome.

But, giving up can't be an option!  We must never give up...or give in.  NEVER.

Too much is at stake.

So, the battle rages....the battle in our heart....and mind.   A battle that matters more than you know.

Do you settle for what is?  Do you accept and settle for less?

OR

Do you believe God to be all that He IS......and that He can do MORE than you can imagine or ask?
That He is working in your life....He is for you....and will help you in your need.

"Since you are my rock and my fortress, for the sake of your name lead and guide me." Ps (31:3)

Don't believe the lies.....
the enemy comes to steal, kill and DESTROY.  The enemy wants to destroy YOU and he is a liar.

Run to the TRUTH.....and hold on for all you are worth.  NEVER give up or give in!
Too much (that you can't see right now) is at stake.

"Preserve my life according to your word." (Ps 119:25)

"You are my refuge and my shield; I have put my hope in your word".  (Ps. 119:114)

"I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word I put my hope."  (Ps. 130:5)`

Your words gave me much needed encouragement today. Yes, we are at war and it counts more than we know. We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us!

What a great encouraging post, Monica. I've been in James recently, and have been encouraging others to remember (as I'm reminding myself)-the trials are there to test us and help make us stronger.

particularly..."be assured and understand that the trial and proving of your faith bring out endurance and steadfastness and patience...but let endurance and steadfastness and patience have full play and do a thorough work, so that you may be people perfectly and fully developed with no defects, lacking in nothing...
James 1:2-4, and 12.

Oh Friend, I love James....
LOL..I have been in Jeremiah...and learning to endure:) So happy to share this walk of faith with you. Thankful for the ways God encourages me through the words of online friends, too. We are not alone in this battle!!!!!
