Fight your battles on your knees........

There are trials in life that we immediately recognize as too large and too difficult to face on our own. They are beyond our resources and scope of influence, and they threaten to consume those things that are most important to us. The Father allows these struggles to shake our confidence to show us that "the battle is not yours but God's" (2 Chr. 20:15). He understands that it is only when we see His faithful character and leadership exhibited in our biggest challenges that we learn to trust Him with every aspect of our lives.

Are you facing a conflict that seems like a lose-lose situation? Are you heartbroken by someones accusations or crushed by the weight of your burdens? Your combat strategy must begin and end with getting on your knees and realizing that God is in control of your situation. He will handle everything for you if you will humble yourself and obey Him. However, you must stop being distracted by your own feelings and the details of your problem. Rather, put your focus on Him and what He can teach you. Surrender yourself completely to the Lord and trust Him with your struggles, because certainly you'll find that He is faithful to lead you to victory.

**Read Psalms 20 and 91 and note how others trusted God and found victory in Him.
**Get on your knees before the Lord and express your trust in His ability to handle the battle you are facing. Then, express your thankfulness for His help and leadership. & blessings
