Psalm 73:28 (NKJV) 28 But it is good for me to draw near to God; I have put my trust in the Lord God, That I may declare all Your works.
Battles are part of life. Yes, even for believers this is so.
In fact, as believers, battles are apt to be a bigger part of our life than if we were unbelievers.
There’s a good reason for that, but we won’t dig into all of that today!
Suffice it to say that we will all face battles as part of our walk with God.
As we face these battles, there are two things that we need to be sure we do. These two things will help us push through the battles with victory.
1. We need to be sure to stay close to God, even during our battles.
Many times, we tend to pull away from Him when we face tough situations.
Because we get in our heads and try to fix everything intellectually.
Logical thinking doesn’t win spiritual battles. A strong spirit and razor-sharp discernment do.
So, in order to have those qualities, we absolutely need to stay close to God.
And those qualities, along with perseverance, will help us win.
2. The other things we need to be sure to do is to continue to trust God with our finances.
This means that when things get tough, we don’t stop giving.
God has promised that if we give to the storehouse, He will open the heavens and bless us (Malachi 3:10).
He has also told us that He will rebuke the devourer for our sake, protecting the fruit of our ground (Malachi 3:11).
But He can only do this if we give (tithe)!
God doesn’t need our money. He owns it all anyway.
But, because our finances are valuable to us, our faithfulness in giving shows (proves) our trust in Him.
And it speaks to the enemy as well. It’s like shouting at the top of our lungs, “you can’t stop me, devil. I trust my God more than I fear you!”.
And it’s important to note that in Malachi 3:10, God tells us to test Him in this.
This is the only place in the entirety of God’s word that He says we are allowed to test Him. That is serious stuff right there.
So, let’s take God at His word, obey Him, trust Him.
Let’s draw near to Him. And let’s give as He has instructed us to do, even during our most fierce battles.
These things will show God that we trust Him, and will help bring victory no matter what we face.
