I’m in the middle of Joyce Meyer’s Let God Fight Your Battles, and thought I’d share some of what I’ve read so far.
Right off Joyce states we’ll all face storms of life, but God has a plan to bring us victory. The battle is the Lord’s. While we stand in the midst of the battle and let God fight for us, Joyce suggests we worship God.
Fear is a huge battle for many of us.
Fear of the mountains and giants we face. Fear of the unknown. Fear of the known. Health fears. Financial fears. Safety fears. Fears for our family. Fears for our country.
And for those of us who have recently experienced major weather events, or are in the midst of them, there is fear of the rain, the fire, the mud, the ice, the wind, the snow …
Opportunities to fear abound.
Joyce continued by saying in the midst of all this, however, we need to realize each and every fear we experience comes from Satan. The father of all lies. He knows fear keeps us from going forward in God’s will and experiencing God’s good for our life.
He also knows which thoughts to plant in our minds that will trigger our fears.
Another thing Joyce said is when we understand God’s unconditional love for us, we realize he will always take care of everything that concerns us. Knowing that truth delivers us from fear.
Sounds oh so simple, and it is, but why do I continue to have trouble with this area of my life?
Maybe it goes back to what Jesus said about us needing to have a childlike faith?
When we were children, didn’t most of us trust that our parents had our best interest at heart, and would do their very best to protect us from all the things that went bump in our night?
Once we grow up, I believe we lose a bit of that innocent trust. Yet, God cares for us even more than our parents did. More than we, as parents, care for our children.
I’m sure I’ll gain more from this book, but for now, this is enough to cogitate on, don’t you think?
Is fear something you struggle to overcome? If so, what helps you stand back and let God fight your battles?

He has a great army, but they are all mere men, while we have the Lord our God to fight our battles for us!” This greatly encouraged them. 2 Chronicles 32:8 (TLB)
