In times of Battle

As children of God living in the world in these times, we are in a battle with the devil. Most times, Christians forget this fact and act like civilians.
 
In ii Samuel chapter 11,
we see David who was the chief commandant of the Israelites army.
He had stayed back instead of going to the battle to fight with his army. David was a man of War, trained by God to wield the sword but on that faithful day, he stayed at home.
 
Perhaps to take a nap, or rest or to merry.
Maybe he was thinking because he is a king, so he chose not to Go.
 
But on that day, the devil brought the fight to him. On that day, he defiled Bathsheba; Uriah’s wife.
From that he committed murder, stole and cheated. From one sin to another, he disappointed God.
Oh yes as the king, he was free to decide where to be. But nonetheless If he had gone to the Battle with the Israelites, he wouldn’t have been in that situation.
 
In our days, Many Christians are doing exactly what David did; even to another higher level.
 
Sleeping back and leaving the battle for others.
No commitment to building the kingdom with tears and spiritual warfare.
Many think a leadership position is enough not go to Prayer-nights.
Perhaps, evangelism is made for the common members alone.
 
Perhaps a position in the church is enough to make you not to join in one work of God or another.
 
This is dangerous. We must always be at the field doing our work.
When the enemies of Prophet Elijah visited him, Elijah at his age, had climbed up to the mountain to pray.
And we know the rest of the story.
 
Child of God what are you doing in these times of battles. Are you fighting with others, or are you relaxing?
Song:
Fight on; Christian fight on…… 2x
Don’t be weary, the battle is not yet over.
Fight on; Christian fight on.
 
May God help us all in Jesus name
