Those who trust in the LORD are as secure as Mount Zion; they will not be defeated but will endure forever. Just as the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the LORD surrounds his people, both now and forever. Ps 125:1-2. We may lose a few battles in life but we will win the war! I have read the book, and our place is assured with Jesus amongst the righteous with Him forever. The harsh reality is that we need to lose a few battles that will stretch us, to show us how far we can go, and to grow us as we become stronger for the next challenge we may face. Each battle will draw on our faith and should draw us nearer to God. God has a plan and purpose for our life and the battles we go through, win or lose, will prepare us for the plans God has for us. Praise God today that He will turn what the devil meant for harm to our benefit, as we keep close to Him, and keep declaring His victory in every area of our life.
