The Christian soldier is not boss of himself. One of the reasons I recommend a regular regiment of fasting is that it keeps you turned for battle. What I’ve discovered in the service of the Lord is that it is good to be prepared because one day you are meandering through life and the next moment you are in battle. This is where most people panic but it should not be the case with the saint. Battles are a joy once you see them as God does.
Your first assurance is that the battle is the Lord’s He brought you to battle and the battle to you. It is a high honor. Victory is never in question and your fears are never justified. Dorean was merely Scott and I meandering through life executing upon the knowledge we were give. Suddenly we were at the apex of battle. To the moment it even appears we are getting our asses whipped. But any who know the Lord never allow their doubts to give way to such appearances. God is far more cleverer actually His battle pattern is to set a hook in the enemies mouth so they peruse you and bring their booty with them. They always arrive arrogant and at the height of confidence like they will spoil you. Even this trip to the SHU was instigated by an old enemy who is still reeling from the pains of our last battle. He brought me a prize I didn’t see coming as I was meandering, but each battle brings hidden trophies that the Lord delivers to His children. Be bold and courageous, winning really is fun!
