The Battle Is Not Yours

You can’t be worried about what other people are doing even if its affecting you directly or indirectly. The world is an evil place and so are the people in it. If you think you got haters you probably do but everything that you become aware of does not need to be addressed. The battle is not yours it’s the Lord’s. You must stay focused and on the right track no matter what people are saying about you or doing to you. People will mistreat you all your life and purposely try to keep you down. Then when you overcome in spite of their efforts they become jealous of your accomplishments. You just can’t win with some people. You can’t please everyone. Some people will never like you or support you no matter what you do. That’s why we can’t worry about people. The devil uses people to distract you and he doesn’t send a stranger he sends someone you know. The people closet to you hurt you the most. Satan’s main objective is to distract you with nonsense and believe me he knows exactly who to send and what buttons to push. Let God handle the enemy.

The bible says resist the devil and he will flee from you.

Ephesian 6:12

says For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high [places]. You are not going through hell because people don’t like you it’s because the devil don’t like you. He doesn’t like what you stand for, he doesn’t like what has been promised to you and he don’t like the God you serve. It has nothing to do with you.

Romans 8:28

says And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to [his] purpose.

When you are operating in Gods purpose haters are going to come out of the woodwork. People are going to dislike you that don’t even know you. That’s why God needs some warriors. God wants some unafraid and unbothered people that can keep pressing on in the face of adversity.

John 1:12

says But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, [even] to them that believe on his name:

God is going to give you power when you receive him. He is going to equip you with all the tools you need to operate in his purpose for your life. You may not have what you want but you have what you need. Be thankful for your humble beginnings because having to make it work builds strength. I’m talking to the people who have had to do without some things but still got the job done. You are going to have to fight for your position. God has it ready for you but you are going to have to go through the people who don’t want you to have it.

Deuteronomy 20:1-4 says

“When you go out to battle against your enemies and see horses and chariots and people more numerous than you, do not be afraid of them; for the LORD your God, who brought you up from the land of Egypt, is with you. “When you are approaching the battle, the priest shall come near and speak to the people. “He shall say to them, ‘Hear, O Israel, you are approaching the battle against your enemies today. Do not be fainthearted. Do not be afraid, or panic, or tremble before them, for the LORD your God is the one who goes with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you.’

God will bring you out of the darkness and he will lead you to victory just believe in him because he has already won.

1 Corinthians 10:13

13 No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.
