Whose fight is it anyway?

There are struggles you would not understand if you were not walking with Jesus. I'm not referring to the everyday know the flesh and blood kind. I'm speaking to those things which you have no control over. I was struggling for a few weeks, wavering in my trust in him because what I felt and seen seemed impossible to overcome.
I was sent a reminder that inspite of my feelings, inspite of what I have seen before me, inspite of the very dim light I may have seen at the end of the tunnel, inspite of myself, I have to rely on the only person who is able to handle all my situations and see me through. Especially, those in which I personally did not place myself into. Being obedient to God is a good thing, it's better than sacrifice and fasting. In obedience you may suffer consequences. I have been obedient. I have done what God has instructed me to do and because of my obedience I have been attack from every direction.

It was not until God reaffirmed His word in me through a friend that I realized I serve an Almighty God. The following helped me to understand that God will send help from the Sanctuary, Empower you by his Spirit, Move Obstacles out of your way and give you Hope about your future.

He says “This is what the Lord says to Zerubbabel: It is not by force nor by strength, but by my Spirit, says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies. 7 Nothing, not even a mighty mountain, will stand in Zerubbabel’s way; it will become a level plain before him! And when Zerubbabel sets the final stone of the Temple in place, the people will shout: ‘May God bless it! May God bless it!”

5in view of your participation in the gospel from the first day until now. 6For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus. 7For it is only right for me to feel this way about you all, because I have you in my heart, since both in my imprisonment and in the defense and confirmation of the gospel, you all are partakers of grace with me. Philippians 1:5-7

1 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3 Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart. Hebrews 12:1-3

Need I say more...Nope.

Be Blessed my friends.
