You don’t have to fight the battle to walk in victory

I ran across a saying the other day, it grabbed me and refuses to let go.

Now you take the “him” away and insert your own struggle or battle and this short sentence becomes so much more profound. How many times as Christians do we carry the weight of whatever we are fighting on our shoulders? That bill you are worrying over, the toxic relationships, the feelings of not belonging, that work situation, that betrayal, that health problem… Friend LET IT GO it’s toxic! We forget that God has already won over that struggle!

I will leave you with this song and I urge you to read the words to the song. Sing it over your life, your kids, this nation, and your friends. God is our Defender!

You go before I know

That You’ve even gone to win my war

You come back with the head of my enemy

You come back and You call it my victory

You go before I know

That You’ve even gone to win my war

Your love becomes my greatest defense

It leads me from the dry wilderness

And all I did was praise

And all I did was worship

And all I did was bow down

And all I did was stay still

And hallelujah, You have saved me

So much better Your way

And hallelujah, Great Defender

So much better this way

You know before I do

Where my heart can seek to find Your truth

Your mercy is the shade I’m living in

You restore my faith and hope again

When I thought I lost me

You knew where I left me

You reintroduced me to Your love

And You picked up all my pieces

Put me back together

You are the defender of my heart

And when I thought I lost me

You knew where I left me

You reintroduced me to Your love

And You picked up all my pieces

Put me back together

You are the defender of my heart

When I thought I lost me

You knew where I left me

You reintroduced me to Your love

You picked up all my pieces

Put me back together

You are the defender of my heart

Psalm 18:2

The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer;

my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge,

my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
