Jeremiah 4:1 “If you, Israel, will return, then return to me,’ declares the Lord. ‘If you put your detestable idols out of my sight and no longer go astray…”
Dear Warrior Poet,
The battle is won or lost in the secret places of the will before God. By the time you are aware of the struggle raging in the external, the Spirit is aware and interceding beneath your consciousness; and we must fight the battle in our Spirit and on our knees.
The battle is won, moment by moment, but also over a lifetime. It is the awareness of our powerlessness apart from the victory in Jesus that we must avail ourselves to Him alone. If we try to win the battle in the external, we are done. Our will must be surrendered not whipped up into a frenzy of self empowered righteousness.
We must again return and surrender to the Grace and power of our Jesus.
