“This is how I fight my battles.”
You want to know how I fight battles? Prayer is my weapon, the Bible is my sword, and my faith is my shield.
My battles are mainly mental battles of worry, insecurity, and frustration, but my God is bigger than all of that. He gives me peace and quells the lies of the devil.
“It may look like I’m surrounded, but I’m surrounded by you.”
Even though the battle rages all around me and threatens to overcome me, God has me wrapped up in him, so I can’t be defeated. He fights for me. He’s the best warrior of them all because he’s already defeated death. Astounding. I’m humbled that he’s on my side. The God who created everything and knows everything takes time to listen to my insignificant babble. He doesn’t need my praise, but he deserves it all the more.
“The word says
‘For the spirit of heaviness
Put on the garment of praise’
That’s how we fight our battles”
Song lyrics are from Michael W. Smith’s song Surrounded (Fight My Battles).
