Good morning and welcome Happy New Month. It's the month of october and it's a new month where in the daily insights, we start a new topic and I will tell you what we will be talking about in a minute. I don't know whether sometimes you feel like in life you are dealing with one obstacle after another. In maybe you don't call them obstacle, you choose to call them goals. You say this is a short term goal towards long term goal, but in reality you feel like you have to really put effort and struggle and work so hard to attain those goals and it's a struggle.

I don't know whether you feel like that. Oh, let me think of another scenario in our christian walk, you feel that is your born again, you want to reflect jesus but there are others pressure from within and without that is forcing you to work so hard to the extent that you feel like saying like paul that I find myself doing the queen's that I don't want to do, it's a struggle Yeah. And we can apply this struggle and so many scenarios of our daily life in parenting in marriage in Correa, there is striving to be best striving to attain, striving to get to the next level.

That's drug, I didn't want to say it's bad but they start struggle. Yeah, thank God because we have his grace. So as we talk about this month and the topic of this month, I want us to think about battle Thrones. I don't know when you hear the word battle and the fronts or the front line. What comes to mind but France is a place or a context within which a struggle is fought in. You know that's that that struggle that you're struggling with, the context within which the struggle is happening or the frontline in military terms being on the front line indicates that you are in the position closest to the area of conflict.

And as I said in the beginning for many life can feel like a constant frontline experience. The bible contains many supporting words about facing trials. In fact, no. Thus in the bible exempt us as believers from them. So in life we will face the trials, the struggles, the conflicts those battles as believers and as I said, when you hear the word battle it creates it creates imaginary image in our minds of a struggle for something or a fight against an opposing force. And ironically we really hear the word battle and think automatically of the word victim.

Okay, so in my front line experiences I began to realize that my focus was much more on the fight that unrest in on Mhm The promised victory. Yeah. Mhm The word of God promises us that even when we are at war and when we hear rumors of war that we are already victorious, we are already able to declare victories by our faith in christ But let's talk of reality, it is not however in human nature to think peace 1st and 2nd Fear. We usually fear first and fight for peace later. But God has set us up to do the opposite.

Mhm We should never fear but instead always be at peace and only when we have peace can we feel victoria's? And the bible says our vaz is today as we begin the service. This is just an introduction in James one verse to my brethren, count it all joy when you fall into diverse temptations. You see county told Joy and then there's another promising the book of Deuteronomy to any votes for it says for the Lord, your God is going with you, you will fight for you against your enemy and he will give you victory. So as we start this new month, the month of october and as we understand the battlefronts because my aim in this daily inside episodes is that we will understand the battlefronts, we will understand our position, we will understand how God fights for us so that we can stop hearing war and battle.

And the first thing that comes to our mind is fear and understand that we are already victoria's, we are already conquerors, we are already at peace when we understand that then it doesn't matter whether we are going through it, we will be able to count it all joy. So I welcoming to walk with me in this new month in the battle front episodes share with a friend pray with me as we explore the butter fronts shallow. This is past Alosi painter with your daily insights.
