IT’S NOT BY MIGHT
Main Text: 1 Samuel 2:9 – He will keep the feet of his saints, and the wicked shall be silent in darkness; for by strength shall no man prevail.
1 Samuel 17:47 – And all this assembly shall know that the Lord saveth not with sword and spear: for the battle is the Lord’s, and he will give you into our hands.
Life is problematic in itself. The challenges of life cannot be won by mere strength. The above scriptures tell us certain things. They are telling us that skill and intelligence do not necessarily give progress; the swiftest and the strongest do not necessarily give progress.
They tell us that natural gifts by themselves are not enough to handle the battles of life. Natural abilities or talents are not enough for a successful life. There are wise people who are hungry. There are intelligent people who go unprepared. In many contests, the best candidates do not necessarily win. Being smart or talented is not the guarantee that you will succeed.
To conquer the battles of life, you need the favour of God. The Bible tells us that ‘A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven’. – John 3:27. People say heaven helps those who help themselves. Heaven helps those who agree with Jesus that they cannot help themselves and they want Jesus to help them. (Proverbs 3:5-6).
Today, declare the favour of God upon your life. You must be the head and not the tail. God has prepared a lot for you to experience. His honour and favour are for those whose walk is blameless. Declare your blessings today and take forcefully what belongs to you through prayers.
IF YOU DO NOT ALLOW GOD FIGHT YOUR BATTLES FOR YOU, YOU WILL END UP IN A DITCH.
