12/3/14: Spiritual Battles are Being Waged all Around You

Published: Wednesday, 03 December 2014 Written by Carlton L. Arnold

Do not fret because of those who are evil or be envious of those who do wrong; for like the grass they will soon wither, like green plants they will soon die away.  Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.  Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.  Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him and he will do this:  He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn, your vindication like the noonday sun.  Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him;  Psalm 37:1-7

It is good to be reminded that there are spiritual battles being waged all around us. Sometimes they will include us directly. As Believers, we need to know God’s perspective on the evil-doers. He says not to fret or be envious. Don’t let their behavior influence your behavior toward others. Otherwise, you will succumb to the same evil attitudes that confronted you. God also reminds us that they do not hang around very long; so, you don’t have to put up with them but only for a short time. That’s very welcome news.

God says to trust Him and He will give you the desires of your heart.  These desires are not your wants.  These are the deep down life-giving ideas that roll around in your head as something that’s just not possible.  With God nothing is impossible.   God places great value on committing your way to Him.  In other words, each day is His to do with you as He pleases as you allow Him.  Allowing Him is where we will most likely see the greatest miracles He performs in our lives. Take delight in the Lord and all that He does.  Be aware of His works in this world now and in the past.  Your righteousness will shine before others like you have never seen before.  You will truly be on the edge of a spiritual mystical union with the God of Creation.
