Strength in the Struggle

The battle continues.

The war is raging on.

Invisible struggle,

fight between right and wrong.

We have a Defender,

ever ready to fight;

our Strength in the battle;

He who makes all things right.

To survive the attacks,

we must call on His Name,

trust in His strength alone,

know He’s true to His claim.

Pray for His strengthening,

know the truth of His word;

spend time with truth-speakers,

so faithfulness is heard.

Do as He is asking,

allow the Lord to lead;

persevere with great faith;

He’ll provide all we need.

(Responding to 2 Thessalonians 3:1-5)

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for Your unending faithfulness.  Thank You that You are always willing to provide what is needed to navigate the narrow road.  Forgive us for our fears and for forgetting the forces that are fighting against us that we cannot see.  Teach us how to pray and equip ourselves to fight the good fight, so that we may stand strong in You, regardless of what comes our way.  Thank You that You are our strength when our own strength is gone, and that it is in that very space of seeming weakness, that You are able to use us the most.  Help us to be open and available to You in all things and at all times.  May our willingness to listen and obey, allow Your love and light to shine brightly before all who need to know You.  May many come to call You Lord and King as a result.  Amen.

  1. I don’t know why I’m always surprised that the battle continues, daily–must be residual naivete. But I’m pressed into Him and poised to fight. God bless you this Lord’s Day, Shannon–love, sis Caddo
