The fierceness of the battle ought not to discourage the faithful soldier. It ought rather to embolden him, to deepen his resolve to fight, to cause him to dig deeper trenches, to plot out well planned strategy for warfare, to engage daily in the life and death battle for souls and for his soul...
Life is War! The battle is for the affections of your heart.
Are you fighting? More importantly is the opposition proving to increase your resolve in the battle? Faithful soldiers will never waive the white flag. Never.
He is in the trenches with you, as are your brothers and sisters in Christ.
Contrary to the popular Army recruiting slogan; there is no such thing as an Army of one.
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.
- Paul, Romans 12:12
