Someone once observed that as Christians we’re either in the midst of a battle, just emerging from a battle, or headed into one. Rarely do we bask in flowery meadows of peace! Perhaps in heaven we’ll enjoy that, but on this earth we’ll have trouble. Everyone reading this is in one of these three places or you know someone who’s there.
Some people think that if revival were to break out, it would be the end of our troubles. It will be, but it’ll be the front end! It’s a fact of earthly life that when God opens the windows of heaven to bless us, the devil opens the doors of hell to blast us. When God begins moving, the devil fires up all his artillery. Should we then fold up and go away? No! We’re to stand up and pray. God did not call us to fail but to be victorious. The death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ established our victory. We will have victory when we learn how to face our battles.
