Father there has never been a time when I was left alone in battle. You have always been my shield and always shown me how to deal with me enemy. The battle is Yours not mine. I step aside for You to direct me. No weapon formed against me shall prosper. No false testimony, rumors, slander, or lies can hold up to Your Truth. I will stand in my strength and conviction. I will be loving to the unloving. I will be peace in chaos. Faithful to You. In Jesus’ name I humbly pray. Amen.
Right this very moment you may be facing an uphill battle or a deep valley assault. Whether you’re struggling to climb up or climb out, your eyes, mind, and heart should always be fixed on God. Be laser-focused on His presence, His voice, His Light.
Whether your battle is with bills, health issues, work conflict, family drama, or an actual conspiracy against you—turn it over to God. Pray to Him to bless you, heal you, remove you from situations, remove negative people from your periphery, silence those who invest so much time in vilifying you.
He sees all, hears all, and knows all. The ugliness that He sees He will wipe clean. The wrong that He sees, He will make right. The darkness will be blotted out with His Light. God realigns all people and all things that are out of order, whether by warming someone’s heart or allowing them, through their free will, to self-destruct and release their hold on you. But you will be free.
I have to constantly remind myself how satan operates. I keep forgetting…it never sleeps so it’s constantly looking for ways to attack you, throw you off of your game, and destroy what you have. It whispers in the ears of strangers and loved ones. So you have to be vigilant, prayed up, and protected by God’s Word.
Don’t match hate with hate. Don’t match ignorance with ignorance. Don’t match darkness with darkness. Step back and remember Who’s child you are and act accordingly. Let God do what He does best and watch your enemies bow down.
