A Stake In The Ground: In Jesus’ Strength Not Ours

7th January

For the Lord your God is going with you! He will fight for you against your enemies, and He will give you the victory!

Deuteronomy 20:4

The last few days we have been discussing making a conscious decision to reject the enemy’s lies, his temptations and all the evil that he tries to throw at us and put in a stake in the ground, to declare that we will not follow his evil schemes anymore but rather make a decision to follow Jesus.

Friends, however, let us not forget this one, most important thing; Yes, a conscious decision to reject the enemy comes from hearts ready to fight and rally against the enemy’s evil, yet victory must be found in Jesus and in His cross. Our role is to decide to not compromise but it Jesus’ power that gives us the strength to follow through with our decisions. When we try to fight in our own strength, albeit with the best intentions, we will stumble and fall. Yet if we fight in the power of Jesus, victory is guaranteed. God fights with and for us.

Let our number desire be to put Jesus at the front, in the middle and all around every decision we make, so that when the battle is won, Jesus can get the victory. Yes, let us put a stake in the ground, but let us surrender to Jesus to fight with and for us.
