“It’s in God’s hands. If it is meant to be, it will happen. If not, it won’t.”
How many times have we heard the above statement or a similar one by fellow believers? Maybe hundreds of times over the years.
Is there any truth in the statement?
Therefore, put on the complete armor of God, so that you will be able to [successfully] resist and stand your ground in the evil day [of danger], and having done everything [that the crisis demands], to stand firm [in your place, fully prepared, immovable, victorious]. (Ephesians 6:13 AMP)
The reason we put on the whole armor of God is so we can fight demons, to pull down their strongholds in our lives, destroy their arguments and every exalted and proud thing that opposes the truth of God. We also must fight to take every thought and purpose captive to the obedience of Christ who lives in us.
After we have done all of this, then we can place our concerns in God’s hands and trust Him to work everything out for His glory.
Anything less than this will usually end up as a defeat in our lives.
My prayer today:
Lord, help us learn how to fight the good fight of faith so we can finish the race You have set before us and keep the faith while we are still running. (Based on 1 Timothy 6:12 and 2 Timothy 3:7)
Join with me on Thursdays to fast and pray for our families.
