We are all a part of this great battle between good and evil. We are the ambassadors to this world to fight for the treasure that God has given us in Jesus. This is not an easy battle because the forces of evil would like nothing more than to take every ounce of good we have in us, dispose of it and fill up the emptiness with every demonic force available. It seems as though the enemy has forgotten who side we are on and the warrior that dwells within us. This time of year seems to be the perfect time for the enemy to strike. As we gather with our families to celebrate our Savior's birth, the enemy would like nothing more than to tear it apart. He pulls out all the stops by orchestrating tragedy, causing deaths, bringing on sickness, all to try and bring you down. Don't be discouraged. God will redeem your tragedy and you will pull through it victoriously! You may suffer a little while, but the glory of God will shine through!
"I will go before you and level the exalted places, I will break in pieces the doors of bronze and cut through the bars of iron, I will give you the treasures of darkness and the hoards in secret places, that you may know that it is I, the LORD, the God of Israel, who call you by your name. Isaiah 45:2-3
