2 Chronicles 20:15 "Be not afraid nor dismayed...for the battle is not yours, but God's."
I believe the Greater One lives in us if we're born again (1 John 4:4). I believe Jesus is greater than the devil. I know the Word of God says that. Therefore, I must act like it's true. That's when it becomes a reality, and that's when the Greater One goes to work for us.
If I go to pieces and act like I'm trying to fight the battle, the Greater One is not fighting it. And then I'm not taking advantage of the Greater One and what He has done for me. So I don't try to figure out the situation or get on the internet to find out what someone's opinion is about something, At night, I just lie down and go to sleep, no matter what's going on.
We have to learn to roll our problems over on the Greater One.
You have to say to the people, "I'm not going to bother about that, meaning, I am not going to worry about anything."
If you are worried or concerned about something, then the Lord doesn't have it--you still do.
I walk by faith and not by what I see or hear. I quote the Word and go on as nothing was wrong.
I know it's hard, but that is what God says to do.
Confession: I refuse to battle. The battle is not mine, but God's. He is the Greater One, and I have put Him to work in my behalf by knowing His Word and by acting like it is true.
