God our Fighter
today was a rough day. two of my close friends lost family members. ISIS released a video showing their beheading 21 Christians. and the enemy has been attacking my faith all day. I've been facing temptation to sin. mass wasn't all that great. crummy day all around.
but thankfully, God knew it was coming. He had the Psalm all picked out for me today. yes, things are crappy right now. yes, the world is unpleasant sometimes. but He is fighting for us. He is "contending with those who contend with me". He's fighting the enemy on my behalf. so I can trust Him to win.
the enemy is much older, wiser, and stronger than I am. but God is so much more than the enemy is, it's no comparison. fortunately my faith is in Him, and not in me.
please be my contender, God.
