Caught in the Crossfire

There are times when we feel like we are in a huge battlefield. At times it feels as though it’s one fight after another. Fights are not only the one on one issues we have with people. It can be a collection of events overtime, or it can be the negative thoughts that don’t seem to stop in our minds. If everything is about spiritual growth concerning eternity….not just this temporal life; then what is this battle for?? In the book of Job 1: 6-12 an interesting conversation occurs between God and Satan. Satan appears on the scene stating he has been prowling the earth to see who he can devour. God responds have you considered Job??? ( I’m paraphrasing this) I can’t help but wonder if the same conversations are being had about us. Perhaps this is why we are told so many times not to fear. Exodus 14:14 “The Lord will fight for you; you only have to be silent.’. For many this maybe a foreign concept. You may think, how can that even be possible, it’s to submissive I must do something!!! There is a spiritual war that we can’t see and by faith we believe God for victory. We are moral attempting to fight immortal not always understanding that sometimes we are just caught in a crossfire. Be still and know God is faithful even when we are not. Never underestimate the power of prayer, for God hears. So to be positive, faithful, courageous, and keep walking it out , is anything but submissive or passive. Don’t get it twisted

  1. Don’t get it twisted! lol.
    It is such a battle for your mind. When you really remember that you realize how much we need to constantly attune our minds/hearts toward Christ. To know who our provider is when storms are on the horizon. To just sleep peacefully in a boat that’s rocking back and forth because it is God who controls the waves.
    Being still… a concept I’m still trying to grasp fully. Some days better than others.
    He is definitely faithful (even when we are not). Humans don’t always stay faithful – especially when we are not faithful to them. Thus, it’s hard for us to sometimes fathom God’s faithfulness because we may think of Him as a human who will have a possible tallying system. God has no system. Just that we go to him in repentance for sins and forgive others to be forgiven.
    God’s ways are higher than ours and his thoughts higher than ours. He is supreme and good and it is good to start the day reflecting on this. Thank you. 🙂

  2. Just reading reminds me of how many times I am in God’s face with my presumptuous sins—eg my lack of Patience

    1. Agreed it’s a tough walk and at times easier to talk the talk. So we have what it takes to put this into practice…..and the answer is yes. Why? Because God says we are able to do this thing!!
