U didn't make me & set me up to sit & wring my hands about the troubles around me or those within! U made me a warrior to fight those battles!
In Joshua, they were taking the land U had promised them! “The men from the tribes of Reuben, Gad, and half the tribe of Manasseh obeyed Moses. These men crossed the river in front of the other people. These men were prepared for war. They were going to help the rest of the Israelites take the land God had promised to give them.” Joshua 4:12 ERV
In 2 Corinthians 10: 4, 5 I'm encouraged to battle: “The weapons we use are not human ones. Our weapons have power from God and can destroy the enemy’s strong places. We destroy people’s arguments, and we tear down every proud idea that raises itself against the knowledge of God. We also capture every thought and make it give up and obey Christ.”
U have placed a conquering nature in me! And U gave direction for that nature. I am to declare war on the enemies without & within & U will lead the charge! I am not to live in defeat in any way, but to engage in war & win!
