Listen to what God says to His people concerning His battle plan:
You are my war-club, my weapon of war; and with you I shatter nations, and with you I destroy kingdoms. With you… and with you… and with you… (51:20 ff)
God has chosen to fight this war against our enemy, Satan, along side of us. He is not up there pushing buttons on a game system controller. He wants you and me to go into battle with Him.
Are you a sharpened sword? A sturdy shield? An obedient soldier? This is war. God has a battle plan that includes you and me. We are His weapons of war as we share the Gospel, as we live lives set apart, as we study and pray and go and stand for the Truth of Scripture.
Don’t minimize your role in this. God is depending on each of us to be faithful.
“And with you I shatter…” He says.
Could God defeat Satan without us? Sure. But He has devised a battle plan that depends on our faithfulness.
May faithfulness describe all of us who consider ourselves His people. May we be God’s effective weapons of war.
