Are you fighting a battle?

Good Morning Gorgeous,

It’s a brand new day. A fresh start. You can rise every single day to that beautiful truth. A new day. A new dawn. Another chance.

Whatever you are battling, the battleground is refreshed. You may have been knocked down yesterday. You may have faltered and lost your footing. You may have left the battle covered in mud. Your knees may be skinned and your body bruised.

Today, you get another chance to defeat what knocked you down yesterday. Overnight, the battleground was cleaned. The Lord has attended to your hurts from yesterday. He has brushed off your knees. Applied His healing salve to the wounds. He fed you. He strengthened you and refreshed you.

You are not the same person who fell down and lost yesterday. You are stronger, wiser, and the Lord is with you. Rise up today and tell Him everything. Tell Him what hurt yesterday. Tell Him every detail. Pour it all out, and then let Him refill you.

He will replace the hurt with Heavenly resolve, the truth of His Word, strength to move ahead, and equipping grace to know how to proceed today.

The battle lost yesterday is not an indicator of today’s triumph!

Every battle stands alone. Every day is a new chance to triumph over the things of the world coming against you.

Your God will fight for you. You need only to be still. Rise today with a renewed stillness that is born out of trust. Trust that when you invite Him into the battlefields you are facing, He WILL show up. He will go before you, and today will not resemble yesterday.

Dear Heavenly Father,

We give You every battle. We recognize You as our Mighty Warrior who can summon armies of angels to aide us. You are good and You are for us. Let us be filled with the stillness of trusting You. In Jesus’s name, Amen.
