Why I Stopped Fighting


My Post (17)

Why I stopped fighting, I had to. Oh, I stand in faith, have the armor of God, sometimes we think we have chinks in it but if it His armor, how could that be? I just had to stop fighting and be still, why? Here’s the answer.

The Lord will fight for you, and you have only to be silent. Exodus 14:14, some translations, or most say be still, bringing us back to Psalm 46:10, and we have already talked about the Hebrew roots of that being to let go, and in the context of rapha, or healing, so letting things go, brings healing.

Not only that, you won’t be so tired of fighting. Let the Lord handle what you can’t anyway. You may be unaware of the root of the problem or spiritual warfare. The Hebrew also uses a phrase meaning to hold your peace. Now, we know God a God of peace, He sent Jesus the Prince of Peace to take our place and Jesus left us His peace. John 14:27

As a believer, we depend on God, and look at this verse we have to be still but God in Psalm 83:1 Keep not your silence, O God: hold not your peace, and be not still, O God. Look who’s doing battle for you. And there’s more.

The LORD your God who goes before you will himself fight for you.

Do not be afraid of them, for the LORD your God,Himself will fight for you.

,,,,,for the LORD your God is He who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies, to give you the victory.

Deuteronomy 1:30, 3:22. 20:4

Wherever you hear the sound of the trumpet, rally to us there. Our God will fight for us! Nehemiah 4:20

You will not need to fight in this battle. Stand firm, hold your position, and see the salvation of the LORD on your behalf, O Judah and Jerusalem.’ Do not be afraid and do not be dismayed. Tomorrow go out against them, and the LORD will be with you. 1 Chronicles 20:7,8

And in Ephesians 1:8, He has showered His kindness on us, along with all wisdom and understanding. So let’s not wear out ourselves out in battle but use the weapons of our warfare, His name and blood, casting down imaginations. 2 Corinthians 10:5.

And let’s remember, What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? Romans 8:31 I like peace, and I want to have it my life, so I had to stop fighting, even defending myself, I don’t have to argue. God says not guilty, the enemy is a thief and liar, and even the false accusations won’t stand up. I would much rather have the Holy Spirit be my attorney, I don’t need a fool for a client. And I don’t like fighting, so I stopped and let God take over, I had to.

  1. Rebecca, Psalm 46:10 is my verse! “Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!” Part a is the key verse for my new book “The Heart That Heals” that comes out this fall! πŸ™‚ I love that passage. So much truth!
