On my way back home from the hair salon, one of my favorite songs of the year played on Power Fm (104.1). It is called waging war by Cece Winans. I love this song so much for so many reasons… for one, I am tired of the devil stealing from me and so in recognition of this fact, I put the volume on full blast and sang my heart out as i flew over the ka swampy area en route to kalangala (where I reside 🙂

Anyway, in that divine moment, I became aware of one of the roles I am supposed to be playing in this life. We should all stand against these devil sent principalities in high and low places sent to come and deceive us. I have been pondering on the things that I can call passions and I have really tried to dabble in quite a few areas but the circle of searching brings me back to an active fight and stand against the enemy. The Bible says in Romans 8:18 :I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.” And indeed there is much to look forward to when you have given your life to Christ. But sometimes I think that   Hebrews 10:18  “And where these have been forgiven, there is no longer any sacrifice for sin” has a simpler meaning than we think. Yes, Jesus died for our sins and those who believe in Him and died with Him are alive in our Lord. So then much of the suffering that we endure here on earth is not necessary so to speak. I hovered over that word ‘necessary’ because somehow it felt like I was tampering with what some might call life but I refuse to believe that it is necessary for a little infant to die horribly from child sacrifice so that somehow somewhere, the circle of life can continue. I cannot for one second agree that such is life. And then my thoughts were made stronger when I read that “God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ” 1 Thessalonians 5:9.

So, in this path to finding and fulfiling the will of God set out for my life, I am inching closer to what I believe He planned for me before the foundations of the earth. I pray that by His grace, I am able. I’ve never felt that song like I did on my drive home and I definitely can feel the direction this is all heading. Yes the enemy has his jaws wide open like a hungry lion but I am putting on my full armor and waging war for Christ and all He did for me and for you too.

Shalom!
