It is so important for us to remember that God is our Source and the key to winning battles of life. He wants to fight our battles, but the choice is ultimately up to us. So, how do we let God fight our battles? Well, first, it means you do not take matters into your own hands and do what you feel like doing.

2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world,but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what the will of God is his good, pleasing and perfect will.
For example, when someone hurts or offends me, what most of us feel like doing is retaliating,doing something to “make them pay” for what they did. But our way and the way of God are completely different!
We are in a spiritual battle, and it goes much deeper than what we see on the surface. That is why knowing His Word is so incredibly important. The Bible clearly outlines strategies of God for overcoming the enemy, and it contains His wisdom and the direction we need for every problem we face. Because knowing what the Word of God says and then doing what it says is the greatest weapon we have to winning battles of life!
The Word of God shows us who we are in Christ and teaches us how to defeat the enemy through His strength. His Word has the power to renew our mind, heal our brokenness and change our lives .Simply put, the Word of God is our protection. We must know it, love it, obey it...and use it against the enemy when he comes against us.
Prayer starter: Dear heavenly father , you are the source of my strength and peace. Remind me that i can not face the battles of life without you and give the serenity to admit that i need you. Amen.
