The Lord is fighting for you 

  I don’t know about you guys but it just dawned on me that there are no limits to the Lord. 
Of course, right? 

But, when scripture says that the Lord will fight for us, until my drive into work this morning I only considered him fighting against others on my behalf. This morning, I was praying through a few issues that have become very clear to say the least and in the attempt to leave those with Jesus to take care of them, I realized that the Lord fights for me, too. For me against the enemy type of way. For me for the sake of the future he has planned for me & the work he has for me to do. For me for the sake of my peace, strength, & rest. If he provides a resting place, if he hides me in his wings, if he is diligent in his commitments to provide for me & protect me, wouldn’t he also keep me from spiritual & emotional issues, too? I need to be still – not try to self soothe with outside sources. I need to be still & allow the word to give me peace and rest, rather than allowing my circumstances to dictate where I am emotionally. Whether I’m happy or sad, joyful, frustrated, afraid, content, or peaceful. 

I’ll let the Lord fight those battles and handle that while I focus on what I can do – stay near to Christ, speak well & positive of myself & situations when I talk to myself, & be kind and patient. Just be still. Which I’m not very good at – I’m proactive, I like to work to make things right, & do something about whatever the situation is. But, when relying on God, being still is never unproductive.
