Struggles?

There are struggles everywhere every day in this world. Society is trying to teach us that we’re strong enough to fight our own battles, but that could never be more wrong. “For the LORD your God is He who goes with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you.” (Deuteronomy 20:1) You are not alone in this fight; in fact, it’s not even yours. Fighting things on your own will not scare the devil, but trusting that God is fighting for you, will. “The Lord is a man of war; the Lord is His name… Your Right Hand, O Lord, has dashed the enemy in pieces. And in the greatness of Your excellence you have overthrown those who rose against You; You sent forth Your wrath; It consumed them like stubble.” (Exodus 15:3,6-7 )

 

Letting God handle your struggles is important, but prayer is also just as important. Every day of your life God wants to hear from you. Prayer is a way in which we can communicate with Him, worship Him, and present our requests to Him. When in doubt, pray; that is your fighting role. When it’s hard, trust in Him, and the outcome will be much greater than what you can image. “He will respond to the prayer of the destitute; he will not despise their plea.” (Psalm 102:17)

We must remember that no problem is beyond God’s control. God has big plans for every little thing in this universe. He has promised to take care of us and love us unconditionally. Knowing this, we should not be discouraged when bad things happen. “What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?” (Romans 8:31)
