I don’t have any worries about people trying to fight me because according to His word, he said, ‘for I will contend with him who contends with you, and I will save your children. (NKJV) – Isaiah 49:25. Some people just go about their daily activities and they don’t seem to have any worry about the issues of life or about some other people fighting them in order to displace them. They are so confident about their places being secured while more people in life have endless sleepless nights because they are always seeing one person or the other fighting them or trying to take their place.
Everything that happens to them looks like an attempt from someone who is trying to destroy them and they will start marathon pray. As much as prayer is a very good thing I must say that sometimes we spend precious time praying about the things that have been settled long ago according to the word of God. From time to time you come across people who seem more conscious of the fact that they need to fight than the fact that they are not the ones who will do the fighting. On day one it’s one person who is fighting them and on day two it’s another person. If they ever try to get into a place and someone tells them they are not properly dressed they will say, oh, I know the devil will come here again!’
Even if the devil shows up all you have to do is to fight him with the word of God and not your ability to pray! A lot of people are beginning to place ability ahead of the substance in the word of God and that’s why you see a lot people who find solace in the fact that they can pray for several hours without stopping. It’s a good thing to be able to pray for several hours but that’s if you are really talking to God!
It’s true that there are forces that will want to contend with your chances of progressing in life but you must not forget what His word said and you must not forget that the same word created the world that you live in. According to His word, He, not me or my ability, will contend with those who contend with me. Again, here a promise that comes in handy and ahead of time. God knows that there are people who will contend with you because the devil contended with God before he was defeated and thrown out of the kingdom. Guess what the beautiful thing about God’s victory over the devil is! The Bible says they overcame by the blood of the lamb and by the word of their testimony! (Revelations 12:11).
It is obvious that our victory in life is according to the word of God because in the beginning was the Word, the Word was with God and God was the Word. This simply means that when we speak the word we are speaking God into the situation and with this any force that has been contending with you must let go! It’s high time we began to work with the power in the word of God instead of labouring tirelessly without results.
It’s a small thing to have the word in your head, it’s okay to have it in your heart but the real thing is to have it in your mouth! The word in your mouth is the word that works!
