The Christian life is a battefield

Ceder Creek reenactment 2011 from this past Saturday
I am not saying this lightly, a friend of mine reminded me of this with her blog post today. So many times the enemy Satan tries to get us to believe that God is not winning the battle! He wants us to believe that he has triumped when we sin or when we get discouraged. ladies dont' believe it!!! God the God of the universe has triumped with Christs resurrection from the dead! What a hope, we are still alive, not dead, we are still fighting and fighting strong, but not strong in our own strength, only in the strength of God alone!

" If we would ripen in grace, we must live near to Jesus- in His presence- ripened by the sunshine of His smiles. We must hold sweet communion with him!"- Morning and Evening October 20th by Spurgeon

Ladies we must hold sweet communion with Christ, then only then can we have victory! Death is swallowed up in victory through Christ! Oh death where is thy sting?! We have victory praise God in Christ! Fight the good fight and don't do it in your strength, rest in Christs strength.
I am trying, I might fail sometimes, but Christ never fails, He will always prevail. 

 “Death is swallowed up in victory.”
 “O death, where is your victory?
  O death, where is your sting?”
 The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
(1 Corinthians 15:54-57 ESV)

In Christ,
