“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” — Acts 1:8
Are you fighting a battle right now? I believe we all have battles to fight at different times in life. The good news is, as followers of Christ, we are not fighting alone. We have a Mighty Warrior and His host of angels on our side. That makes it a totally different fight. The Holy Spirit, our personal Warrior, is in each of us, and He is our Helper.
When we accept Christ as our Savior, the Holy Spirit comes to dwell inside of us—God literally gives each one of us a little piece of Himself. So, what does this mean? It means that all of God’s power, strength, comfort, creativity, and help are available to us at all times.
God never meant for us to live weak, powerless lives—always “running on fumes” and barely getting by. His will is for us to be “more than conquerors” (see Romans 8:37). And through His Spirit, He wants to provide us with the strength and ability we need to succeed in life and lead us through each battle we face.
The enemy will try to stop us from moving forward in the things of God. And he will use any strategy against you, things such as discouragement and distraction. But remember that Almighty God is on your side no matter what you’re facing, and He has a plan for you to be victorious.
Prayer Starter: Father, I believe You lead, guide and direct me every day. Help me to be the strong warrior you have called me to be and follow the plan you have for me to win the battle. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
