THIS DAY WE FIGHT!
“Game Over! You won!”
Am sure you will like to know what happened, if I asked you to guess you may say someone was fouled and the match was awarded. Well, you may not be so far from it.
if you’re battling some form of fear, guilt or addiction today, or struggling with negative or defeatist thoughts, I have good news for you. This day, we FIGHT! but not with any kind of natural lethal weapon, or any specialized kill squad but our faith.
Yes, it is our faith in God that grants us the ability to stand together through trying times and fight for what we believe. However, this fight is a special kind of fight called:
‘fighting from the heavens’ ask the great Commander Sisera and his commandoes how they were slain and why Sisera fled from war for the first time!
Its exciting if only we knew: although church folks use the ‘christenese’ fight of faith a lot, but don’t really understand it. Well, this day we FIGHT! but how?
They fought from heaven; the stars in their courses fought against Sisera (Judges 5:20).
“The stars in the sky joined the fight, from their courses they fought against Sisera.The torrent Kishon swept them away, the torrent attacked them, the torrent Kishon. Oh, you’ll stomp on the necks of the strong!”
“…the LORD discomfited Sisera, and all his chariots, and all his host, with the edge of the sword before Barak; so that Sisera lighted down off his chariot, and fled away on his feet” (Judges 4:15).
Though Sisera didn’t know it, he was fighting against a heavenly host, not just the army of Israel. The Bible says, “…the stars in their courses fought against Sisera” (Judges 5:20). God’s angels fought alongside the children of Israel to defeat their enemy. Time will fail to tell of the Wealthy man of the Orient- Job, if he had ever commanded his day, told the dayspring to know its place or given commands to the constellations to discharge, mazzaroth, orion, plaedes… hmmm! That’s for another day anyway *smiles*.
“But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” 1 Cor 15:57
This is not just talking about an occasional, once-in-a-while kind of victory. Notice what it says say in 2 Corinthians 2:14…
Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ…
