Preparing for Battle

You know that life is a battle.  Scripture tells us that as well, as Jesus states:

John 16:33 (NLT) I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.

As much as we desire for ourselves and those we care about to not face struggles in our lives, we will.  So, an important part of living is to equip ourselves and our loved ones to face every obstacle, every disappointment, every insult, every grief, every negative in life as an opportunity to grow in the understanding of the Lord and who we are in Him.  We are called to be warriors – overcoming like Christ – and to raise warriors who are victors, not victims; to understand and help others to understand how to use the resources, weapons, and power we have as sons and daughters of the King of Heaven.

To equip yourself and others for life and to prepare for battles you will face, look to the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  What you will each find is perfect love, complete forgiveness, total acceptance, security, comfort, protection, wisdom… all that is needed for life and godliness.

2 Peter 1:3 (NLT) By His divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life.  We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who has called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence. 

Continue journeying with me as we discover more about becoming powerful warriors for Christ.
