ALIVE WORD: Be encouraged, God is fighting your battle

Ministers Wilbert and Jacqueline Richardson

Ye shall not need to fight in this battle : set yourselves, stand ye still, and see the salvation of the Lord with you, O fear not, nor be dismayed; tomorrow go out against them: for the Lord will be with you.” 2 Chronicles 20:17

Beloved, God is fighting your battles for you. No matter what you may be going through right now, know that you are not in it alone. You may feel tired of ‘Going Through’.  You may be wondering just what next to do and what next to pray. Be encouraged today. God will fight your battle for you.

The enemy is raging war against the body of Christ but He is already defeated. He may be doing all he can to convince you that God is not coming through for you. Maybe he is making it appear as if God is not hearing your prayers, much less answering them but the devil is a liar. God is for you. He is with you and He knows exactly what you are experiencing at this time. He has not left you and He will not leave you now.

Now more than ever, be determined that come what may, you will serve the Lord. You see, your destiny in Jesus Christ is sure as long as you continue to trust God and you do not faint. God has great things in store for your life. He has already told you about many of the things that He has in store for you. He has shown them to you in dreams and visions. He has spoken them to you through prophetic words and by His still small voice. God is able to bring to pass the vision that He has placed within you to further His Kingdom.

Beloved, do not become discouraged by the war that is raging around you. Call on the Lord who is mighty to deliver you. Do not bend and do not bow to the pressures or the attacks. The power of God is greater and greater is Jesus Christ who is in you.

Yes, it may seem like it is a long time coming but know that God will manifest mighty blessings in your life. Keep focused and keep fervent in prayer as you serve the Lord. Do not grow weary in well doing. Increase your time of praise and worship, fasting and prayer.  Give thanks unto God.

Beloved, God is more than able to do all that He has promised you. Maybe, things did not quite work out the way that you thought that they would in some areas but God is not dead. He is very much alive. His ways are higher than your ways. You must believe that even what seems to be bad is working together for good because you love God and you are called by the Lord.

In the midst of your struggles, encourage others in the Lord. Do not become consumed with what is coming against you. For there are many hurting, many lonely, many lost and many discouraged who are waiting on you to share a word of hope with them.

Remember the Battle on Mount Carmel and know that the God who answered by fire is your God. In the midst of your fire He is sure to answer with His fire which gives power and destroyed the works of the enemy.

Beloved be confident today that the weapons that has formed will not prosper. God is faithful. You are a child of destiny and it is the will of God that you be in health and prosper. Victory is yours.

Keep praying and have a blessed weekend.

    Thank you so much Pastor Richardson. It is the Word of God you sharpen our faith with. The Holy Spirit led me to your web site after I cried and confessed that God says I am more then a conquerer and I have the victory in Jesus Christ. Reading your message, I am more encouraged that God has taken over the battle I am fighting long ago.

    I praise and give glory to our God Almighty. I thank Him for His unconditional love, promises and faithfullness. Amen.

    Yes Pastor Richardson, that is something I am sure of since 12 years ago. But what is more amazing is that during those past 12 years, God has showed me how He had been fighting on my behalf from the day I was born.

    God is Love, and because of this abounding nature of Love, God must demonstrate mercy and compassion through His Person Jesus Christ. Without God’s nature of Love–mercy and compassion in Jesus Christ–human being would not exist, because God’s nature of Holiness cannot tolerate our sinful nature of flesh and blood. “My Spirit shall not remain with man forever for he is indeed flesh” Genesis 6: 3

    But God knows our ignorance–that most of us do not know we have no Life without Him. “Unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you will have no Life in you”. John 6: 53 And as we go around talking about my Life here and there, as if we own ourselves, Satan uses our ignorance to take us down with Him. Some of us are proud and arrogant, meaning that we know the Truth, but we reject or rebel against it; the reason we will go down with Satan in our death condition, unless we decide to allow God’s rebuke and chastening in our lives because of His Love for us.

    But most of us are ignorant and humble–just not knowing the Truth–God knows that. And because of our nature of humility, God blesses us with Spiritual strength of His Love, to keep us fighting against the afflictions, destress, discord, and despair, that comes up against us, until it is time for Him to make Himself known to us. “For this is Eternal Life, that they know You, the One True God, and Jesus Christ, whom You have sent.” John 17: 3 I know that I have spoken the Truth because it is the greatest testimony of my Life.

    I give thanks and praise to God Almighty for the day He justified my faith and made me right with Him through the blood of His Son, Jesus Christ. And now I ask in the name of Jesus for this blessing to befall all of the people of my homeland, Dominica, because of their faith in the suffering, the death and burial, and the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Amen!
