Who’s your ally? Roman 8:30-33 –
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace” (Isaiah 9:6). In life, things come in tows; a day is incomplete without the presence of day and night (Gen.1:31). You cannot have two days without a night in between. You have joy and sorrow, war and peace. At the delivery of a baby, there is the presence of two- the baby and the placenta.
The former is embraced while the latter is discarded. It is no news that life is war. Right from birth we are at war. The birth pangs and travails of child birth prove this. When you were born, you were in a pool of blood. You were not laughing but crying. Some children may not even survival that delivery. Some who were safely delivered may not survive the war for a week. Thank God you survive to see this day.
At birth every one came into this world naked irrespective of their antecedents. No one came with some money in his hands. So for you to make a success out of life, you must fight. Besides success, sickness is war. You would have to fight to remain healthy. Poverty is another fight you must win. So also is marriage. If everyone is born naked and physically empty, how come some end up rich while others are poor, some great while other ordinary? Some people think it’s all a matter of luck or game of chance. This is not true! Those who win the battle of life only succeed because they have a good ally. Why did you think your parents wanted you to go to best school? It is because they wanted the best teachers to be your ally so that you can win the battle of the top. All those who believe you will never amount to anything will receive the greatest shock of their lives.
You will not only become something, but also be what God has planned for you to be. What is that battle currently engaging you? The Lord will give you victory in Jesus’ name. According to Romans 8:31, if you are rightly connected to God, you will be sure of winning the battles against your life. Every enemy that has lifted weapon, voice or hands against you shall be truncated. The lord will show up as your ally and take over the battles of your life. It shall be well with you.
