Once a person chooses to walk with Christ it is not soon after the opposition shows up…………You guessed it satan and his army.Scriptures teach us that Jesus said we are more than conquerors. “As it is written,For thy sake we are killed all the day long;we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.Nay,in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that Loved us”.(Romans 8:36,37).
This choice we make to follow Christ brings much hatred,but remember he said they hated me before they hated you.We are no longer of the world nor follow it’s way’s. “I have given them thy word;and the world hath hated them,because they are not of the world,even as I am not of the world.I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world,but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil”. (John 17:14,15)……(John 15:18)……(1 John 3:13)……(Psalm 44:7).
We realize the right decision was made on our part when our Father shows up on our behalf,and should we make the wrong decision then war breaks out. “For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth,to SHEW HIMSELF STRONG IN THE BEHALF OF THEM WHOSE HEART IS PERFECT TOWARD HIM.Herein thou hast done foolishly :therefore from henceforth thou shalt have wars”.
(2 Chronicles 16:9).
When we place our Faith in God it is he who causes us not to be a prey to our enemies,they do not triumph over us…Sadly sometimes it is our own friends who turn away from us. “Yea,mine own familiar friend,in whom I trusted,which did eat of my bread,hath lifted up his heel against me.But thou,O Lord,be merciful unto me,and raise me up,that I may requite them.By this I know that thou favourest me,because mine enemy doth not triumph over me”.(Psalm 41:9-11).
