Get a Grip on Reality
We are fighting but we are limited. And angry. And tangential. Have you ever wished for more tactics? More weapons? Wanted a more straightforward fight? Wished that nothing was off limits? No holds barred? It feels like we are fighting on so many fronts, that we are spread too thin and that we are fighting a losing battle.
But we need to get a grip on reality: God is unlimited. And He has won, is winning, and will win. Regardless of our feelings, our anger never produces His righteousness and our frenzied panic never results in His glory. The Devil and his minions have arrayed themselves against God and against us. Our fight is not against flesh or blood, but make no mistake, we fight. And not as those who beat the air, but we wage war in the power of the Holy Spirit.
The goal is not to triumph – God has already claimed victory. The goal is not to prove superiority – God is by definition. The goal is not an easy life – that’s not going to happen. The goal is not even to end the fight – Jesus ends this one when He comes again.
The goal is men. This battle is for their souls.
And to this end we pray, we share, we live, and we stand fast in the faith, brave and strong.
