Fight on the Hidden Battlefield — and WIN!

Thursday, February 14, 2013

by George Whitten, Editor of Worthy Devotions

1 Peter 4:7 But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.

Have you ever heard of the Valley of Elah? It's the valley near Bet Shemesh where David defeated Goliath, yet this historic battlefield is virtually untouched in Israel. During the rainy season a brook runs through the midst of the valley, however it dries up during the summer. This brook is very likely the one from which David chose his five smooth stones – one of which was used to kill Goliath. Yet, this historic place has no landmarks, no churches – people drive past it all the time unaware of it's biblical or historic significance.

The present "invisibility" of this battlefield causes me to reflect on the fact that David's battle with Goliath was also won in an "invisible" place…the place of David's faith. Isn't it true, most of the battles we face are won or lost in the spiritual realm — on a hidden battlefield where we wage war in our prayer closets? Spiritual victories in our prayer closets won't necessarily result in monuments marking them, but those victories will be well remembered in Heaven, and will leave dynamic memorials of faith in our hearts!

Is there a spiritual Goliath facing you today? If so, remember where the battlefield lies, hidden – in your prayer life! Stand strong and firm in devoted prayer…and the victory will be won – fight on the spiritual battlefield, where the greatest victory of all, Yeshua's own triumph on the cross, has already prepared the way for yours!

    My Goliath (for the moment) is my twins not taking a nap during the day. I am determined that through the power of prayer that today will be the day that we get back on track from the craziness of the holiday season. I am praying for patience as I work them back towards their schedule. Without a nap time, they are cranky ALL day and I can't get any house work done or dinner cooked. I want to be the best mom that I can be and in order to do that I need my children to take a nap during the day. God, grant me the understanding and patience to resume some sort of order in my house today – with you by my side, I know that I will be able to get my babies to take a nap today.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you…this is the Supernatural at Work and none other but our Dear Saviour. I'm saying this with tears in my eyes, I opened your Page and Open my Bible to Isaiah 30 vs 15 and 18… I had marked the page some time ago… And Almighty God reminded me that in Returning and Rest shall be my Strength…and He is Willing to Wait for me…Praise God. My battle is my Family's Salvation. My youngest Son to be Directed in the right Direction, and that my Faith Fails not. And I know that this is Will for all of his Children…that our Faith Fails Not… Thank you from the Bottom of my Heart for your Writings..your Obedience to Your Saviour…I'm Praying for you… God Bless you Richly.
