For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord.
For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.
Isaiah 55:8-9 ESV
Greetings and Happy New Year from Christian Children’s Empowerment! As we kick off the new year for our Power Up Bible Study Sessions, we are doing so using the theme Let the Lord Fight Your Battle. As people of God and those striving to live a Christian lifestyle, we know that our battles are spiritual and must be fought by the spiritual. Thus, for the next several weeks, we want to focus on Bible stories where we see God fighting battles for His chosen. Some methods may seem unusual, strange even, but that is one of the most amazing aspects of God. He uses the unexpected and surprising to fight our battles sometimes. His ways are not our ways. As a result, my hope is that you will learn to give your battles over to God and trust Him for the outcome. Every Monday get battle ready with us! God is waiting!
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood,
but against the rulers, against the authorities,
against the cosmic powers over this present
darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil
in the heavenly places.
Ephesians 6:12 ESV
