I have found that as I continue to walk with the Lord, the battles in my life have become easier to confront and overcome.
It’s not because I’m all that or have attained to some super Christian level of spirituality…
And it’s not because the battles themselves have somehow become less challenging, less ugly or less difficult.
It is simply because I have come to know the Lord more intimately.
He has become greater in my life, larger, more trustworthy. Not that He wasn’t great or worthy of my trust before, it’s just that as we have walked out this life together (God & I), He has proven Himself faithful over and over and over again.
He has taught me how to seek Him, how to pray and how to listen. He encourages me in the word with special scriptures that speak directly to me and to my needs. He confirms those words in a myriad of creative ways: through songs, through friends, through a stranger’s kind words…
He strengthens me with His precious Holy Spirit who is my constant help and guide.
He has set me free from fears, condemnation and confusion. He blesses me with the ability to get free from sins, from bad and destructive habits, as well as negative mindsets and beliefs.
I am grounded in the foundation of His all-encompassing, extravagant and unconditional love. If God is for me, then who or what can possibly be against me? (Romans 8:31)
God has given you the means to victory– it is through faith in the power & the blood of Jesus Christ.
Walk with Him everyday and you will overcome every obstacle, hindrance and sin that tries to hold you down:
“For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world– our faith.” 1 John 5:4
