Battle Plans

Thought For The Week 41

Two soldiers with guns

The New Testament tells us that, as believers, we are involved in serious and very real warfare [Ephesians 6:12].  As I mused on Moses instructions to Israel I thought of how, again and again, the Scriptures urge us to put Yahshua first; to lay down our own ambitions and plans; to set our hearts on Yahweh; to offer our lives as living sacrifices [Romans 12:1; John 12: 25, etc.]. In this way the standards for battle laid down by Moses are brought over into this dispensation.  We are citizens in Yahshua’s kingdom [Colossians 1:13] and after we have been ‘transferred’ here we need to take possession of our promised land.  There will always be a fight so it’s important that our hearts and minds are focused and not ‘elsewhere’.  The art of surrender is a learned skill, developed through many submissions along the way, but it is also the secret of survival.

Go forward in the name of Yahshua, Who has already won the victory; do not be afraid.  Each of us is equipped for the battle!  As we continually lay down our lives for the One Who gave His for us, we will become more and more focused, and be strengthened to administer the defeat.

And He said to all, "If any person wills to come after Me, let him deny himself [disown himself, forget, lose sight of himself and his own interests, refuse and give up himself] and take up his cross daily"

Luke 9:23 AMP
