Invite God to Fight Your Battles

I added the picture above to the message I share with you below.

Invite God to Fight Your Battles
written by Pastor Joel Osteen

Did you know your posture can communicate your faith? There's a scripture in Psalm 24 that says, "Lift up your head and the King of glory will come in. Who is the King of glory? The Lord mighty in battle." Think about that for a moment. When you lift your head, you are inviting God to come in and fight your battles for you. What does it mean to lift your head? It means you are setting your focus on God—you are looking toward Him. You are putting your faith and hope in Him and getting a vision of yourself rising higher and higher.

Understand that your life is going to follow your vision. You can't stay focused on where you are or how it's never going to get any better because if you're looking down and focusing on your problem, you'll stay right where you are. Instead, you've got to lift up your head and invite God to fight your battles. That means if you're sick, you've got to start seeing yourself as well. If you're struggling in your finances, start seeing yourself with more than enough. You may be facing major obstacles, but start seeing yourself rise above them. If you will lift up your head, then the Lord mighty in battle will come in. And when God shows up, every adversity will be turned to victory, and every battlefield will be turned to a blessing field!

Today, lift up your head, even if you've been standing for a long time, even if you may feel weak and tired. Scripture says that when you feel weak, then He is strong in You! Psalm 3:3 says that He will even lift up your head. In other words, He will give you vision, He will infuse you with His life, and He will empower you to stand strong and embrace victory! Call on His name today because He is closer than the air you breathe. He is ready, willing and able to show Himself strong on your behalf when you invite Him to fight your battles!
