"Your people did not conquer the land with their swords;
they did not win it by their own power;
it was by your power and your strength,
by the assurance of your presence,
which showed that you loved them."
Psalm 44:3 GNT

What lands are you trying to conquer today? Is it in your own power or the power of your holy Father?

We can try to win our battles in our own terms. In our own power. In our own wisdom. We seem to be wired that way. We make statements to God such as: "Seriously, I can do it." or, "Truly, my way is better." and, "For goodness sake, I know what I am doing!"But don't you understand--we can not do anything without the blessing and power of our Heavenly Father. He is our general. He is our shield. He is our sword. Whatever it is that we are trying to conquer--we need to send Him out before us. And whatever is trying to conquer us--He will slay. Whatever hurt, habit or hang-up that plagues us--no matter how strong we think we are, we aren't. Not on our own power, wisdom or terms. But call upon the name of our Lord Jesus Christ--now we have power!

Please, if you have been struggling with something in your life--your land--and you've been trying to slay it all on your own--STOP! Call upon Jesus. He is only a heartbeat away. For when you call out His precious name, not only do you get Him, but you get God the Father and the Holy Spirit. And believe me, when you have the three of them all wrapped up in one, you have a almighty fortress that nothing can breakthrough.

Blessed assurance! How sweet it is! And it is yours just for the asking--ASK! Then remember to PRAISE! Praise before you even see, feel or know the outcome.

"For when we brought you the Good News, it was not only with words but also with power, for the Holy Spirit gave you full assurance that what we said was true." 1 Thessalonians 1:5 NLT
