Our Battles Are Meant to Be Won

Updated: Sep 24, 2023

With God battles are meant to be won, which means, we do not have to worry or be anxious when we are going through our struggles.

In this blog you will see even when in an impossible situation you will succeed when you understand who's fighting your battles.

Life Lessons Learned from the Bible2 Chronicles 20:12-17

"For we have no power to face this vast army that is attacking us. We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you...Do not be afraid or discouraged...For the battle is not yours, but God’s...You will not have to fight this battle. Take up your positions; stand firm and see the deliverance the Lord will give you...The Lord will be with you" (2 Chronicles 20:12-17).

There are times in life when we do not know what to do and where we lack control over our situations. And in those moments, we lose hope.

Once hope is lost, we get worried, afraid, or panic. But if we look to God, ask for His help, and trust Him—then help will come.

When you're faced with your own life battles you should not be discouraged or afraid because your battles are not yours—but God's.

Whatever your battle may be, whether it is addictions, health related, relationships, finance, mental issues, etc., God says it is His battle to win for you (2 Chronicles 20:15).

God takes responsibility in protecting your life and ensures you get through every struggle in life. He is faithful to fight your battles, even those subtle enemies like depression.

If you are dealing with depression God can see it and He will fight that enemy for you. Just be obedient to do what He says then that enemy of depression, addiction, fear, worry, lust, etc., will go away.

When you go through battles in life, you're not going through them alone because He gave us His Word that He will never ever leave us alone.

Never will you be left alone to fight for yourselves because God is with you during each battle (Joshua 1:9, Deuteronomy 31:8).

While God is handling our affairs on our behalf, our role is to take our position and not give up. In other words, have faith in knowing you will succeed.

Do not feel discouraged, disheartened, believe you lost, or that your fight is a lost cause.

And do not give in to thoughts from yourself, others, or the enemy that is different from what God is saying. Instead stand firm in His Word and refuse to change position despite the efforts being made to influence you to do otherwise.

Even if it seems like you're losing, feeling overwhelmed, or tempted to quit, don't be persuaded because you are more than a conqueror with God's help (Romans 8:37). And God will give you victory in every battle you will fight in life (Deuteronomy 20:4).

Facts vs Truth

Part of the fight is making you believe you are losing, but it's not true.

In the Bible Sarah being old and past childbearing age was a fact. Yet she had a child. This happened because God's truth (His Word) overridden and vetoed the fact

When you believe God's Word (faith) over any facts like sickness, poverty, disease depression, affliction, poverty, struggle, etc.; His authority overrules (reverses) the facts.

1 John 2:21 NIV says, " lie comes from the truth" So whatever God says to you is not a lie regardless of the facts (present reality).

An example is the story of the blind man who Jesus healed but the the Jewish leaders did not believe the man was originally blind even after the man said he was. They asked for his parents for proof, and his parents said, “We know he is our son,” the parents answered, “and we know he was born blind. But how he can see now, or who opened his eyes, we don’t know. Ask him. He is of age; he will speak for himself.” (John 9:1-20)

The fact is your current reality, but God’s Word has the power to reverse that reality. This the power of God’s Word

So then, when you're in an impossible situation, be still, stop fighting, relax, and understand who God is. You will succeed when you understand who is fighting your battles for you.

I was asked to help this organization grow and develop but was unaware of the opposition that awaited me.

When I first started my assignment, I was excited, energetic, and full of hope only to become depleted, because I quickly realized everyone was not as excited as I was. And not everyone wanted me there.

I was met with lack of support, resistance, false accusations, and individuals who wanted me removed from my position.

Right around this time I heard God say, “be still and know that I am God.” These were simple words, but they had a profound impact.

When God says be still and know He is God, He is telling us to relax and not worry because He is in control. He also wanted me to know that there is nothing too hard for Him to do and accomplish (Jeremiah 32:27, Genesis 18:14).

Next, He assured me to let Him do what He does best; and what He sets out to be done, will be carried out because He finishes what He starts (Philippians 1:6, Isaiah 55:10-11).

So, I did.

It was not easy, but I learned something, if you trust God, it will be better in the end.

I stayed clear and did not give in to the temptation of complaining, frustration, or quitting. It's not that these feelings did not arise, I just did not allow them to influence me to give up.

Overtime I became no longer concerned with who was with me or who was not because I became content knowing that God was.

Deuteronomy 28:7 let us know that even if your enemy's revolt against you, they will be defeated.

Our true enemy is Satan. He is the one that influences or encourages the behaviors of people to interfere in our lives to stop us from fulfilling our purpose. If that doesn't work, he will come up against you in other ways like hindering you financially, socially, affecting your health, relations, and more.

The truth was, the enemy didn't want me to be successful within that organization because of the significant impact attached to the assignment. And one way the enemy opposes us is through people.

Without our cooperation the enemy cannot be successful in his pursuits and schemes. Read more about it in Is there jealousy in the house blog.

Our battles are not always physical. As in my case, I was not physically opposed, it was in their hearts, words, and attitude where my assignment was being hindered. But the attempt was useless because whatever plan God has for you nothing can stop it (Isaiah 14:27).

These words, "be still" allowed me to know how much I needed to depend on God and not myself. And it reminded me if God is with us, we are unstoppable.

"What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? "

— Romans 8:31

God who is in you and with you is greater than any of your battles, and with faith you allow God to protect, help, and deliver you during each one (1 John 4:4, 2 Thessalonians 3:3, 2 Chronicles 20:17).

"You are my battle-ax and sword,” says the Lord. “With you I will shatter nations and destroy many kingdoms."

— Jeremiah 51:20 (NLT)

Once you learn to stop depending on your limited scope of ability and understanding, and instead trust God's wisdom, He will guide you on what to do.

The next time you are facing a battle that is bigger than what you can handle, put your confidence and faith in God and trust Him to save you.

A call for salvation

When you accept Jesus Christ as your Savior, His spirit will come to live inside you. This is one of the greatest blessings of salvation. You don't have to go through someone else to get to God, and He will live in your heart where you and Him become one and have a relationship.

All you have to do is make the choice of salvation by repenting of your sins and accepting Jesus into your life by confessing that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that He came from Heaven to die for your sins (Romans 10:9).

Here's a prayer that you can say to get saved:

Jesus, I confess that you are Lord, and I believe you died and was risen for my sins. I have sinned against you, and I repent and ask for forgiveness of my sins, and I accept you as my personal Lord and Savior. Come into my heart and wash away my sins with your blood and make me clean, and I receive you by faith as my Lord and Savior. Thank you for forgiving me and making me into a new person—in Jesus's name, Amen.

Once you have done this, please pray and ask God to guide you to a ministry where you can grow, mature, and start living the abundant life Jesus promised and died for.
