If you are anything like me last year was so filled with conflict, wars, natural disasters, earthquakes and fires.
Maybe through the years you heard other Christians say, boy ,”I’m really being tested and see little end in sight. Last fall my lovely wife Linda was diagnosed with degenerated discs in her neck and back. She had a month or more of pain even emergence doctors could not control. Maybe you, a spouse, or another had a similar trauma. Only a week in hospital was able to stop the pain in August. Since them she has become marginally better, but has daily fatigue that makes her sleep more because of heavy meds. We are going for full restoration of Linda by faith in His healing power.
In a scene from the third Lord of the Rings movie King Aragon seeks to inspire his hopelessly outnumbered men against what seems like sure defeat of the enemy. Riding along the front Lines of His gathered army he shouts,” I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart out of me. The day is here where men’s hearts fail. But this is not a day to have doubts we can win, no, THIS IS A DAY WE FIGHT.”
Christian, The day has come when we cannot he filled with fear, we cannot offer passive resistance to Satan and his forces, we take up the armour of God as recorded in Ephesians 6 and we fight! I can see today as Jesus did, Satan falling like lightening as the army of the Lord rises up in the authority and power of Jesus to break through enemy lines and win a victory in Jesus’s Name. I have chosen a biblical word, “FIGHT” for this year recognizing the difficult seasons the Church of Christ is facing this year. Now at 70 years old, after 40 years pastoring , retiring 2 years ago I have chosen to go to war this year believing Jesus will continue to defeat,the works of the enemy as I pray and move into action in faith in Jesus Christ. Come, brother, come sister, “This is is a day to fight”.
Praise the Lord! Brother Paul
