Tozer for Today....

I asked .......childlike would be humble I would allow God to fight FOR me....?? That's kind of what Dara and I were talking about just yesterday....what an AMAZING God!!

November 27 Spiritual Warfare and Sin: Victory Assured
Then Jacob was left alone; and a Man wrestled with him until thebreaking of day. Now when He saw that He did not prevail against himHe touched the socket of his hip; and the socket of Jacob's hip wasout of joint as He wrestled with him. --Genesis 32:24-25
The enemy never quite knows how to deal with a humble man; he is so used to dealing with proud, stubborn people that a meek man upsets his timetable. And furthermore, the man of true humility has Godfighting on his side--who can win against God?Strange as it may seem we often win over our enemies only after we have first been soundly defeated by the Lord Himself. God often conquers our enemies by conquering us.... When God foresees thatwe must meet a deadly opponent, he assures our victory by bringing us down in humbleness at His own feet. After that, everything is easy.We have put ourselves in a position where God can fight for us,(childlike) and in a situation like that, the outcome is decided from eternity. WeTravel an Appointed Way, 14."Lord, help me to submit willingly to You, in complete humility,without struggle or wrestling. Then You fight for me against my strong enemy. I'll rest-and revel-today in Your victory. Amen."

There is a big difference in being childlike and being childish. I think of being childish as one who is stomping her feet trying to get her way rather than putting her hand into His and letting Him lead her where He decides.

Thanks for visiting my blog! I hope you'll drop in often and leave refreshed! :)
