Warriors, just the other day, I noticed that someone posted a declaration “protecting” them and others from trials, attacks, tribulation. As you can see, that declaration is AMISS. Jesus himself told us that WE WILL have tribulation. Therefore, asking God to protect us from it is in ERROR.
We WILL HAVE TRIBULATION. It is a FACT, Jack! So. if you signed up for salvation believing it is a cake walk and that God protects us from all trials and troubles, you signed up in error. God gives us every resource so that WE CAN STAND in spite of it all:
Ephesians 6:10-13 “10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.11 Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, THAT YOU MAY BE ABLE TO WITHSTAND IN THE EVIL DAY, AND HAVING DONE ALL, TO STAND.”
In other words, we can DEPEND on tribulation, trials, temptations, hardships, etc., but WE CAN ALSO DEPEND ON GOD THROUGH IT ALL. AMEN HALLALU-YAH!!!
Scripture tells us when we are faced with trials and must “push through” them, the trials help build perseverance. We do much the same kinds of things with infants and young children. The difference is that infants and young children have not been “touched by the world” and don’t know anything EXCEPT PUSHING THROUGH.
TIME TO LET GO OF THE WORLD AND START REACHING FOR JESUS WARRIORS!!!
Deuteronomy 20:1-4 "When thou go out to battle against thine enemies, and see horses, and chariots, and a people more than thou, be not afraid of them: for the Lord thy God is with thee, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt. 2 And it shall be, when ye are come nigh unto the battle, that the priest shall approach and speak unto the people, 3 And shall say unto them, Hear, O Israel, ye approach this day unto battle against your enemies: let not your hearts faint, fear not, and do not tremble, neither be ye terrified because of them;4 For the Lord your God is he that goes with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you."
