Sometimes God will simply run a protective shield around you where nothing will be able to get through to attack you. Other times something will start to slip through to come directly against you, and then God will move ahead of you to take it out. This is where God will literally take your enemy head on and do battle with it.
Sometimes God will fight the actual battle through you, other times He will simply tell you to hold your position and do absolutely nothing, and then He will move Himself to completely take out the attack coming against you. This is where God shows you how powerful and how awesome He really is when He moves into battle to personally protect you.
Our God is a mighty, powerful and awesome God especially when you see Him as your Lord and Savior, protector and only hope. Let Him fight for you.
The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still.(Exodus 14:14 NIV)
I’m asking you today to identify the peace stealers in your life. What’s causing you to be stressed? Are you carrying a load that you’re not supposed to carry? Are you allowing someone to dump their burdens on you, trying to be the savior? Turn that over to God. Don’t let them pull you out of rest. Are you allowing traffic, people or a grouchy boss to upset you? They may not change, but you can change.
Life is too short to let peace stealers determine our destiny. If you’ll make this decision with me that you’re going to live at rest, you’ll not only enjoy your life more, but I believe and declare God will do for you what He did for the Israelites. He’ll part Red Seas; He’ll restore your health, and He’ll bring vindication, promotion and the fullness of your destiny. He’ll fight your battles if you’ll remain at rest!
