‘If you have raced with men on foot and they have worned you out, how will you compete with horses?’ Jeremiah 12:5
And so it happens that we find ourselves embedded in a weave of thoughts and knots. Trouble has come our way. How should we respond? Could it be that we complain too much? We question, we ponder, we fret on our past decisions, choices and behaviour.
Nevertheless, what has been, has been. It is a time to contend for now, because that is what we have to contend with.
As the prophet Jeremiah was faced with a fierce battle, he became overwhelmed and asked the Lord why the evil people seem to prosper. That is a very good question, don’t you think? But, the Lord responded in a way that must have left Jeremiah stunned, or at least, I would have been!
The Lord said, in other words, ”stop whining!” This is just the beginning! Brace yourself, for you are in for a tougher ride! There is a greater battle coming, and you will need to put yourself together, be strategic and stand your ground!
”If you have raced with men on foot and they have worned you out, how will you compete with horses?’ Jeremiah 12:5
You cannot contend with your yesterday, as it has passed.
Today, be supercharged to grab your ‘now’.. Stand on the word of God despite the warfare.
The Lord has called you and I to do great things.
Some are extremely hard and we get pressed, making even the most solid relationships to be put to the test.
Yet, as the days get darker, we are called to stand our ground and contend, because a
time is coming when we shall contend with horsemen (greater spiritual warfare)…..
So stock up on the word of God!
