The fight we are in is not an easy one. The enemies we face are strong, intimidating
and formidable. Their goal is to take us down, to make us fail.
On our own, we are seriously outnumbered and outgunned. Do we have a chance?
Can we win when the odds are stacked heavily against us?
As I look at my own life and the challenges I face it can be intimidating and overwhelming
at times. There are times I can’t see a way out or an answer. There are times I feel
completely powerless and not sure how things will work out but this week
I have been thinking about victory. I believe the Lord has been showing me
I have a chance. Even though the enemy seems like a mountain blocking
my way I believe I have a chance, we have a chance!
No matter how gigantic the enemy is or how impossible our situation is we have
a chance because God is with us. Let’s look at a story that beautifully portrays this,
“Now four men who were lepers were at the entrance of the city’s gate;
and they said to one another, Why do we sit here until we die?
If we say, We will enter the city-then the famine is in the city, and we shall die
there; and if we sit still here, we die also. So come now, let us go over to the army
of the Syrians. If they spare us alive, we shall live; and if they kill us,
we shall but die.”
2 Kings 7:3-16
The lepers were in a dire situation. They had no weapons,
they were heavily outnumbered and had very limited options but God made a way for
them. Because God was with them the lepers had a chance. With everything against them,
God turned their hopeless situation around for good.
We have a chance against the hordes that stand in our way. God will not abandon us.
Have hope because you will win. The Lord will carry you through the valley of death.
He is faithful and can be trusted.
Be encouraged today!
Bless you, friends.
