The Battle Isn't Mine

Updated on November 8, 2014

Allowing God

Many of you know the situation I am in. Just over 1 year ago, my grandson Jonathan was killed. He was 23 months old. The guy I feel did this is still walking the streets and may always.

I have had an interior battle going on inside.

Just this Sunday, my pastor, is doing a sermon series called the supernatural. This sermon is helping me a lot.

I have come to understand that there is a war in the heavens over my family and my soul.

God is angry about Jonathan too.

My war has been with David Olson, DFS, law enforcement, prosecutor's, and others.

I have been fighting the wrong ones, there leader is the one who needs war waged on him. His name is Lucifer or you can call him satan.

I ask all of your prayers--we must make a stand against the devil. He is out to destroy us all.

My pastor is Joe Wilson and he has been blessed in helping my mind and spirit.

Stand Tall

I know that I can't just lay down. I have to choose the battles carefully as satan has his hand right in the midst. It means reading the Word and prayer. I know who wins in the end--I read the Book. Here is the first part of the Supernatural sermon:

SUPERNATURAL—1

SPIRITUAL WARFARE


For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. 2 Corinthians 10:3-4


Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

Ephesians 6:10-12


WHAT YOU SEE IS NOT ALL THERE IS


· YOU ARE NOT ALONE IN YOUR BATTLES.

When the servant of the man of God got up and went out early the next morning, an army with horses and chariots had surrounded the city. "Oh, my lord, what shall we do?" the servant asked. "Don't be afraid," the prophet answered. "Those who are with us are more than those who are with them." And Elisha prayed, "O LORD, open his eyes so he may see." Then the LORD opened the servant's eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. 2 Kings 6:15-17

· YOUR PRAYERS ARE FAR MORE POWERFUL THAN YOU KNOW.

"Don't be afraid, Daniel. Since the first day you began to pray for understanding and to humble yourself before your God, your request has been heard in heaven. I have come in answer to your prayer. But for twenty-one days the spirit prince of the kingdom of Persia blocked my way. Then Michael, one of the archangels, came to help me, and I left him there with the spirit prince of the kingdom of Persia. Now I am here to explain what will happen to your people in the future, for this vision concerns a time yet to come."

Daniel 10:12-14 NLT


WHAT DOES THE DEVIL DO?

· HE BLINDS THE MINDS OF UNBELIEVERS.

The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers2 Corinthians 4:4

· HE STEALS GOD’S WORD FROM YOU.

“When anyone hears the message about the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what was sown in his heart.” Matthew 13:19

· HE SETS TRAPS TO ENSNARE YOU.

…and that they will come to their senses and escape from the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will. 2 Timothy 2:26

· HE FIGHTS TO STOP YOU.

For we wanted to come to you-certainly I, Paul, did, again and again-but Satan stopped us. 1 Thessalonians 2:18

· HE PLANS TO DESTROY YOU.

Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.

1 Peter 5:8

THE SPIRITUAL BATTLE


Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints. Ephesians 6:13-18

· WE DO NOT FIGHT FOR VICTORY. WE FIGHT FROM VICTORY.

You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. 1 John 4:4

Small Group Questions


1) Read 2 Kings 6:15-18. Describe a time when you realized God was doing something spiritually that you couldn’t see with your natural eyes. (Maybe God was warning you, or speaking to you, or prompting you to do something.)


2) We studied several of the devil’s goals: blinding minds, stealing God’s word, trapping you, fighting against God’s work and destroying you. What has your enemy done to hinder God’s work in you recently?


3) God has blessed you with spiritual armor and weapons that are not of this world. Your armor doesn’t cover your backside. Other believers help cover you. Spend some time covering each other in prayer.

I Hope

I do hope that this message has helped you as much as it has me.

Thanks be to Jesus and our Father God for putting pastor Joe and the other's at First Freewill Baptist in my path.

I know that God has a plan and all will come together for His GLORY!

      Froggy, your courage to stand tall is mighty. I have never felt the pain you must feel. And I am truly sorry for your loss. Looking at pictures of your precious grandson bring tears to my heart. The battle is not ours, but we will win; playing in God's garden. Blessings my brother! I pray for your peace!
