Another day, another battle. As a Christian I am called to glorify God in all I think, say and do. But how much of today will be made up of my own desires for my own glory? How much will I allow outward circumstances to dictate my attitude, emotions and actions? The victory comes only through a consistent and conscious awareness of this battle along with a solid walk and personal relationship with God. For the Christian, this is the daily grind. Not one of working for someone or picking up after someone or looking after someone, but standing up to someone in particular, the devil. I can do all things through Christ. I can work hard and be joyful about it IF I stand my ground against the devil and his schemes. Joy and contentment for today lies in the outcome of this battle. Joy and contentment is all part of the victory celebration when I stand my ground against the enemy's deceptive schemes in obedience to God, bringing Him the glory. Christian, the battle rages on! Stand your ground. Remember your brothers and sisters throughout the world are undergoing the same battle, so stand firm.
Snippets are what pops in my head while having my daily quiet time with God. I write it down to maybe encourage, challenge or inspire others to read God's word. Please feel free to share your snippets as well. Enjoy and God bless!
