Don't just stand there, thank God for the victory!
As I get older I realise that its no good being passive. It's not a Godly attitude or stance to take. Passiveness in the face of evil or the enemy is plain wrong.
We always need to remember that we already have the victory, in all aspects of our lives. God reminds us in His word that the sacrifice on the cross made by Jesus brings us spiritual and physical blessings.
In the Old Testament we have the great section in Isaiah prophesying about the Messiah and what his sacrifice will do for us.
But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.Isaiah 53:5
In case some wish to leave it as simply historical His Word repeats the same in the New Testament in 1 Peter.
Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.1 Pe 2:24
It is simply not possible to deny that Christ has brought us healing in all aspects of our life both spiritual and physical. We need to remember that and to claim it, to command victory into our situations, always!
How do you fight your battles?
I'm someone who came to faith as an adult after a short period of searching for something. I wasn't raised in the church or in any denomination so everything about faith has been new to me. You can read my testimony here.
My family background has been nominal Christian with a strong working class ethos. I tend to have strong moral values but am an economic liberal in the English tradition.
Happily married with 2 dogs, 2 cats and grown up children.
