Warfare. The constant state of His children living on this earth.
What comes to your mind when you read this name for your ABBA?
One who loves, desires - you - more than anything.
One who gave His only Son - for you - to be with Him eternally - if you choose to be His.
One who conquered the grave - fought death - and won. For you.
One who gives eternal life - beyond this world - our temporary place of living life.
Eternal. With Him. You.
ABBA has a way of putting things in perspective.
I think about men like Hitler. Just an ordinary man who rose to power slowly and steadily. Never thought of as a threat by many. Never thought he would direct such evil in the world. Such an example to see how satan works.
So often, we think we can overcome the "little sins" on our own.
A sin is a sin.
Each and every sin is a foothold for the evil one.
If we don't follow His lead, putting on each and every day His armor He provides for us.
What comfort in knowing - He is bigger than any "Goliath".
For God, a most fierce warrior, is at my side.
THE most Fierce Warrior.
at my side. at your side.
