Many times we find ourselves in the thick of a battle and all we can hear is the loud roar of the fight surrounding us. This deafening high shrill is designed by the enemy to keep us off our game and is an all-out attempt to force us to make a wrong move that could be detrimental to ourselves and the lives of others.
When we are in the heath of the battle and we call out for the Lord’s help, we get so distracted by the advances of the enemy, it seems as though we are losing. We fail to actually “hear” when God has bought relief or even the answer to the problem.
I have been in the thick of a battle recently. Yes, I do understand that as a Believer in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ we are already Victorious in Him! However, we are in a peculiar position that we must still forge ahead and FIGHT from the position of victory. This fight remember, is from a spiritual vantage point and we must use spiritual weaponry “The weapons of our warfare are not carnal…” (II Cor. 10:4).
We must learn how to “listen” in the midst of the storm or the battle for that still quiet voice from God through His word and through the voice of others.
Three times today the Lord ministered to me some relief in this particular battle. The first time it flew right over my head, the second time I kind of got it and the final time was an effort of the Lord assuring me that it was in fact a message from on High!
It is inevitable that in this life we live that we well encounter tribulations as well as triumphs. The Word tells us that man born of a woman is a few days and full of trouble! (Job 14:11) This is a cyclical life — we gain and we lose, there’s life and there’s death, we are fighting or we at peace… (Ecc. 3:6) and during all of this we MUST develop a listening hear to the voice of Father God during these times!
Those who have an ear let them hear what the Spirit of the Lord is saying…. (Matthew 11:15; Mark 4:9; Rev. 3:22)
Are You Listening?
Until Next Time…
