GOD PAUSE: There are a couple of things to remember when we are in the thick of the battle. First of all, the enemy will come against us when we are doing the right things. When spiritual advancement or growth is happening. He simply doesn't like that. And when he does attack, it is usually from several directions or areas, seemingly at once. But what should we do? Know that God has a strategy. He has given us resources to put him to flight. But most of all, know this from 2 Chronicles 20:15. “The LORD says to you do not be afraid or worry because the battle is not your battle. It is God's battle.” Dear Lord, we do not fight FOR victory. We fight FROM victory! You have gained the victory at the cross. May we walk it today --- even in the thick of the battle. Amen and amen.
