Hey, Doug Dial here with 2 or 3 minutes of hope. I know, I KNOW! We’re just OFF the charts today! LOL!
From the first day mankind began to roam this earth until this very day there have been precious few moments of peace in our world. Wars, battles, conflicts and fighting seem to have taken up an awful lot of our time. Nation against nation. Civil wars. Battles at the kitchen table between husband and wife and … occasionally … some sibling rivalry.
Struggles. Disputes. Skirmishes. Hostilities. FIST ta cuffs.
Personally, I HATE conflict. Endured too much of it in my growing up years.
Personally, I HATE fighting. Got beat up too much in my growing up years. Kinda wish I had a big brother to either fight my battles for me or … at least protect me.
Dear one, are you in a tussle today? Does the battle rage?
Is it any wonder?
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour. I Peter 5:8
That sounds like a battle to me. If you think we are engaged in a friendly game of Candyland with the devil … you might want to adjust your spectacles.
♫ It’s a battlefield brother, not a recreation room.
♫ It’s a war and not a game.
I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. John 10:10
THERE’S my Big Brother!
THERE’S my Mighty Warrior!
♫ For the captain of the host is Jesus!
♫ We’re following in His footsteps!
♫ No foe can stand against us in the fray!
His cry from the cross “It IS finished” was not one of defeat!
It’s the sound and the proclamation of a victor’s chant!
UP from the grave He arose!
He’s the Wind that parted the Red Sea!
He’s the Rock that slew the giant!
He’s the Word that commanded: “Peace be still!”
Friend, He’s … our … MIGHTY … WARRIOR!
