The Battle You’re Facing

Without the agony of battle, we never experience the delight of victory.

No matter what we’re battling, this statement is true.

You can’t win the World Series without first competing in the playoffs.
You can’t experience the enjoyment of graduating without having to take the class.
You can’t experience the joy of having a child without the pains of childbirth.

You can’t experience the blessing of spiritual victory without the spiritual battle.


Whatever you’re facing, keep your eye on the victory.

Focus on the victory even in the midst of the battle.

With Him all things are POSSIBLE.

What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? – Romans 8:31

    good stuf, J! It ‘s a good reminder for us that each battle has a purpose-and that God is in control. Nothing comes our way that doesn’t go thru His hands!

  2. As much as we (I) hate the work that often comes with a struggle or a challenge, I’ve grown to love being able to look back at God’s faithfulness. His track record rocks! Thanks for the encouragement.
