The War

There's a war at my house today. It's between several visiting children, and my own children. They are having a play date. My husband came home for lunch today, and he brought some children with him to play with our children. When I arrived home, they were in full battle. Our entire house was a war zone. I'm sitting in the middle of their war zone now, I could die at any moment. Foam darts are flying everywhere, my daughter is yelling "I'm STILL dead!" There is moaning, groaning, and gnashing of teeth.

It reminds me of a verse in Matthew chapter 12, it reads like this:
"This is war, and there is no neutral ground, if you're not on my side, you're my enemy; if you're not helping, you're making things worse."

This is very true in the game of war with my children. They do not have neutral ground. If you're not helping, you're making things worse. I know what this feels like in life. For me, my life. I am not on neutral ground, I am standing on God's ground. The enemy of my soul wants to destroy me, he does not want to help, he wants to make things worse, it is WAR.  But, Thanks to Jesus, the war is already won, and I have been given victory. The enemy of my soul, has darts of foam, lies, tricks, and traps.
Say That Again, today Jesus. You stand on holy ground, and You have won the war. I get to stand with You because I belong to You. When the war is raging inside of me, You will fight for me!
