The Fought-Over Life

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

Tiny Israel is the most fought over land in human history. Fought over by the ancient pharaohs, Amorites, Canaanites, Philistines, Assyrians, Babylonians, Persians, Romans, Mohammedans, Mamelukes, Crusaders, Ottomans, French, British, Arabs, and finally Israel again – the Jewish people. You’d think with all that fighting, Israel was filled with natural resources and riches. It has almost nothing, except that it belongs to God. Which makes the stakes there especially high. From there the kingdom and the blessing will come.

You might feel like life is a battle. The reason is that you belong to God and your life is precious. There’s a high calling on it and a promise of great things to come. It’s worth the fight, and the enemy knows it. His job is to discourage you from persevering and inheriting the blessing. He knows how precious and how high the promise and the calling is on your life. Be encouraged, fight the good fight, and keep going until you inherit the blessing. You knew you had a fight, but now you know you’ve got something worth fighting for.

Today’s Mission – Be encouraged, take the fight and the resistance as a sign of the greatness of God’s blessings, and press on!

The Secret Of Gideon, Samson, And Joshua

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

Every believer is part of a fight against some kind of evil, temptation, habit, or situation. Scripture records that on the day of battle, God’s Spirit came upon His people. His Spirit came on Gideon, Samson, and Joshua and they fought their battle, overcame the enemy, and won. The key is that they didn’t just fight their battles, they were filled with God’s presence in that battle, and so they won. You can’t fight evil by just fighting evil. You can only fight evil with the good, in the good, through the good, by the good, and for good. Fight the darkness by being filled up with the light of God’s presence. Fight the flesh by being filled up with God’s Spirit. Remember, the great biblical warriors never just fought their enemies, they fought in, by, and through the anointing of God’s Holy Spirit. Stop dwelling on your conflict, what’s against you, and what you’ re against. Start getting filled up with the good. In that, you will overcome and you will emerge from your battle victoriously.

Today’s Mission – Before you fight your battles or deal with your problems today, receive from God the anointing for victory.
