Under Attack

Contend, O LORD, with those who contend with me; fight against those who fight against me. Take up shield and buckler; arise and come to my aid. Brandish spear and javelin against those who pursue me. Say to my soul, “I am your salvation.” – Psalm 35:1-3
 
 
Attacks can come from any place and at any time.  They can take on most any form: personal, financial, relationship, physical, emotional, and spiritual.  No matter which form they take or how often they come, attacks are draining.  They take energy to deal with and can leave long-term damage.  Everyone can see the impacts that attacks from even years ago still have on them today.
 
 
How fortunate we are to have a loving God who does not desire us to be overwhelmed by the attacks of earth or enemies.  We need not be defined by our scars because God heals them.  Nor do we need to worry about standing up against the attacks of the world when God is on our side and we use His strength as our sure defense.  There are countless instances in Scripture where God sent in a man or an army into impossible situations and provided miraculous victory.  He saved the lives of Moses, David, Elijah, Peter, and Paul.  He provided miraculous victories against insurmountable odds to Samson and Joshua.  And as we know, what God has done for these faithful followers, He will in principle do for you.
 
 
I pray that you will never experience the life or death situations that are found in the stories I have referenced.  But for any turmoil, every struggle you face, I pray that God will fill you with such a level of faith and protection that nary a hair on your head would be moved.  In the name of Jesus, I pray that God will build you, finishing the work He has begun within you until your destiny is reached and your blessings are made complete.  I stand in agreement with you on this today, tomorrow, and every day for the rest of our lives.  May the Spirit of the Lord live and flourish in your every thought, word and deed to the glory of God alone.

    I have found that when I keep my eyes fixed on Jesus, the troubles and trials of life don’t seem so overwhelming. God promises to walk with us even through the valley of the shadow of death. I find great comfort in knowing that nothing can separate me from His love.

    Many blessings,
    Lisa
