Our President has said that there will be 30,000 more troops sent into battle.  He says it is in the best interest of our country.  This is not a political blog.  Our country is in a battle…..   But we are too.  Me and you.   The scriptures tell us this.

Ephesians 6:12 says that we do not wrestle (battle) against flesh and blood but against principalities, against powers, against rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.  We have a fight on our hands.   A big one.  And we need more troops to fight this battle.  We need me and you,  just every single one of us, every single day. 

President Obama talked tonight about how it is all of our responsibility.  It starts with one.  Don’t be afraid.  This guy Jeremiah was pitted against the biggest armies of the world, biggest rulers of the time.  God told him this….and I believe that He is telling us…just like He told Jeremiah,  “They shall fight against you but they will not prevail against you;  for I am with you, says the Lord, to deliver you.”  Jeremiah 1:19. 

Our battle, your battle today is not against troops we can see, but make no mistake, they are formidable.  I will bet you are in a struggle with something.  It is staring  you in the face, or head, or heart or lung…or liver.  It will not prevail.  Just take that word today for you.  I am with you…..to deliver you says the Lord.  You rest in that today.
