Our battles are first won or lost in the secret places of our will in God’s presence, never in full view of the world. Our time spent alone with our God is precious and crucial to our performance as soldiers in the Army of Heaven. Nothing has any power over someone who has fought the battle before God and won there.
It is unwise to go into the battles of everyday life thinking I will call on God as needed. The time to spend time with God is pre-battle. The battle is won. In our time with Him, we become convinced of the victory and confident of our small part in it.
Get alone for awhile, then get in the battle.
