We celebrated Memorial Day in rehab hospital. It reminded me that my dad was a highly decorated war veteran. Both world wars saw him in the line of duty. He was enlisted and sent overseas both times. He had some battle scars but his valiant fighting gave him rewards.

My husband has been enlisted and so have I. He did not choose this battle but he has fought valiantly. And he is victorious.

Oh beloved you didn’t choose the battle but you are in it. Everything the enemy could throw at you he has. You want to run and hide but it’s impossible. It’s time to pick up the weapons of the Spirit and go on the offense. These weapons are mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds. It’s time to praise the Lord for His abiding presence as captain of the army. It’s time to look beyond the natural and into the supernatural to gather your strength and fortitude. No matter how long the battle you will never be alone or without God’s resources. Faith is a weapon and so is praise. Just when you think you might faint in this day of adversity you can begin to praise and see your strength rise! Heavens army is with you and Christ Himself has already won the war!

God loves you and He’s for you. What you now fight through will become a memorial to your God for your overwhelming victory! Rejoice as you walk in authority and see the victory for your battle belongs to the Lord!

2 Chronicles 20: 15 “He said, “Listen, all you people of Judah and Jerusalem! Listen, King Jehoshaphat! This is what the LORD says: Do not be afraid! Don’t be discouraged by this mighty army, for the battle is not yours, but God’s.”

Psalm 27: 3 “Though a mighty army surrounds me, my heart will not be afraid. Even if I am attacked, I will remain confident.”

Romans 8: 37 “No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.”

I Corinthians 15: 5  “But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
