Do Not Fight Against God!

Click Here to listen to Blog

These evil spirits had the power to work miracles. They went to every king on earth, to bring them together for a war against God All-Powerful. But that will be the day of God's great victory.

Remember Christ says, “When I come, it will surprise you like a thief! But God will bless you, if you are awake and ready. Then you won't have to walk around naked and be ashamed.”

Those armies came together in a place that in Hebrew is called Armageddon.

Revelation 16:14-16

The people of this world will one day try to destroy the people of God. It will be a time when even some evil spirits will have the power to work miracles. Except for those who follow Jesus, the whole world will gather itself together against God!

But the battle that comes on that day will be "God's great victory." The enemies of God will find out in no uncertain terms why He is called "God Almighty." The foolishness of fighting God will be seen by everyone.

But what about me and you? Do we sometimes try to fight against God's will for our lives? Do you know what God wants for your life to be and yet you have decided that another path is the one you want to take? And since you know that God will not force you to walk in His ways, you plod along, moving in a direction that He has not called you to go. That can be the source of so much turmoil and confusion in your life.

The warning is this: "Don't fight against God." You will not prevail and you will only bring difficulties to your daily life. You say you want to follow Jesus, but you resist when He pulls the reigns of your life one way or the other. You struggle to walk according to your will and not His.

"Lord Jesus, I want to follow you, but I so often resist Your leading my life in the way that You want it to go. So Lord I choose today to make my path and every step I take according to the way You lead. And may You be praised forever. Amen."
