The Battle belongs to God – Part 2

When Jesus walked the face of the earth people were in bondage because of sin and Satan had the upper hand. However, Jesus made an agreement with man and together they went to war again. The agreement was done through the blood of Jesus which was shed on the cross of Calvary. It was like seeing Jairus and Jesus walking toward Jairus’ house. They were in agreement for the well being of that young girl.

Now through the precious blood of Jesus, anyone’s sins can be forgiven. That is how man is able to walk in agreement with God.The Bible in Acts 2:21 says, “And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved” (‭KJV). The first thing that we all need to do when we face battles of life is to call on Jesus. That is really how people begin to walk with Jesus just like Jairus walked with Jesus on the way to his house. On the way to the house the challenge or problem that Jairus faced was now the Lord’s responsibility.

The battle is not yours because the battle belongs to Jesus. You are no match for Satan and he is not scared of you either. Satan has been fighting these battles since the first war in heaven and that is long before you were born. Satan is not interested in you, he is interested in discrediting God. He will still be fighting this war with God long after we are all gone. The war is really between God and Satan that is why we have to let God fight it.

The opposition you encounter in your life is really something directed against God. Satan’s only way to attack God is through you. He whispers negative suggestions to you so that you can make wrong choices and decisions, but Jesus says, “Be not afraid”. Even when things may seem to get from bad to worse, Jesus still says, “Be not afraid”. In Mark 5:36 Jesus says,”…Be not afraid, only believe” (‭KJV). When Jesus was headed towards Jairus’ house, he knew it was his battle. The best we can all do in our struggles is to just let Jesus fight any battle we encounter.

When David fought against Goliath, he knew that the battle was The Lord’s. In 1 Samuel 17:47 David said, “And all this assembly shall know that the Lord saveth not with sword and spear: for the battle is the Lord’s, and he will give you into our hands” (‭KJV). David was confident in the fact that God was going to fight for him. This is how together with God they marched on to victory lane. The battle was not David’s battle, but God’s.

Are you also going to let Jesus fight your battles?
