Many times children of God have attempted to fight battles that do not belong to them instead of leaving it all to God. It is not God’s intention that we should spend most of the time in this world fighting unfruitful battles, because if that was the case then He would not have sent His only Son Jesus Christ to come and die for us on the Cross. When Jesus said that; “it is finished”; He meant that the world’s debt was paid; every iota of the law had been fulfilled therefore all we need is just to believe in Him and enjoy all the benefits.
This has not been the case with most people as we have put a lot of focus on things that prevent God from taking over our battles because we hold on to them too much instead of leaving them to Him. We need to know that the battle is not ours but God’s (11 Chronicles 20:15).
If we try to fight the battle on our terms we will definitely lose; but if we fight the battle on His terms, knowing that it is not us or what we do, that makes us defeat the enemy, then victory will be guaranteed because the battle has already been won on the Cross where Jesus spoiled the principalities and powers (Colossians 2:15). Satan and all of His henchmen were defeated at the cross by Christ atoning for all sin; because sin was and is still the legal right that Satan uses to hold people in bondage.
There is completely nothing that we can do in our own capability to please God but to have faith and believe in him. Trying to devise things that we can do to be victorious in our battles will not please God because it is like telling God that the redemption plan is not enough but what I can do is better.
The enemy will always be there to fight God’s children but God has promised to deliver us from all. All you need in your life is to fully depend on him in everything that you do. There is completely nothing that you can do on your own without God. Depend on Him, in everything that you do and you will see the great and mighty things that He will start doing in your life.
One thing that I like about our God is His mercy. One may stay for some time without getting close to Him. The day you decide that you will get close to Him, He shows up and you will not miss His presence. He does not expect too much from us but just as He put it in Mathew 17:20 that if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, move from here to there, and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you.
This means that He is not expecting a lot from us because if that was the case then nobody would be able satisfy. Just remember that we are now under grace, and our God is love. He will fight all your battles if you cling to Him. There is no battle or situation that is too hard for our God.
What may look too hard with your physical eye is completely nothing with our God. God’s army is great and mighty that nothing can withstand it. Try to get close to Him with all your heart, then you can see and know that He is love, worth running to with all your cares and troubles.
