Conquering battles

Greetings,

I don’t know if im writing this on the right page but i have this question and maybe asking for encouragement too.

In our walk with Christ, we are not perfect, even in our day to day lives, at work or even in our personal lives, but what is the greatest thing that you still battling with right now and How do you conquer it?

I would love to hear it from you guys and be encouraged.

Blessed day with you all.

Greetings,

as i have considered this question Jellani @Jellani , i have had all sorts of 'little' or minor challenges come to mind which often appear to be 'big' or major things especially at the time they are happening in my day to day life.
From such considerations i have become more and more aware that the real challenge is not those things but the fact that i often major on minor things while the major things remain minor.

How can i deal with that? How do i deal with that?

I have been able to recognize, through God's help, that the problem is with the way i think or don't think. What i can so easily start believing overtakes the One in Whom i believe, to the point that i start to worship and praise the problems as lords of my life in who i will either have peace or lose it, which is totally stupid!
When i begin to let something or someone else take my thoughts captive, i cease to be captivated by the hope i have in Christ. He is my peace. Nothing else is, nor can be.
So the battle is often in my mind. What i think about can become an enemy to the Peace of God in me. BUT, i give God the glory in that He does not leave me in a miry pit, He does not ignore my need for His Shepherd's hand to deliver me from danger. I can resist and quite often i do for a time until His patient forbearance with me becomes my only stronghold left. Too often i have pursued vain thoughts about troubles that come my way, in an attempt to work out my victory over them, rather than working out my Salvation by acknowledging Him Who loved me and gave Himself for me and has promised to never leave me, nor forsake me, the One Who is Faithful and True.

How do i deal with my challenges?
There are many, many Scripture passages and verses and stories that help me. For example, The Lord is my Shepherd. I shall not want. That covers so much and it is only when i turn my eyes and thoughts to Him that i can have any victory.

You asked,
How do you conquer
and i realise more and more that i don't.
When i stop trusting my strength which is so weak, i can rejoice in His Strength.
What does this say to you?

Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us.
Romans 8:37

It is when we forget Who He is and why He has given us His Life that we can get lost in battles, but....
Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is.
Jeremiah 17:7

Consider Him who endured such hostility from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
Hebrews 12:3

For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made His light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
Now we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this surpassingly great power is from God and not from us. We are pressed on all sides, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair;

2Corinthians 4:6-8


Bless you ....><>

Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and He shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.
Psalm 27:14

Greetings Brother @Br. Bear

Amen. Last night as i was meditating He reminded me of His Word

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭29:11‬ ‭

You are right the battle really is on our mind. Thank you for the reminder.

and i realise more and more that i don't.

Amen.
May the Lord continue to bless you po and your family.

Greetings,

I would like to add to what i wrote earlier,

one thing i can say with complete honesty is that this thought and Scripture is not only so very true but has also many times borne fruit for me, in me and to me, and i want to publicly thank the LORD and offer my praise to Him, and let you all know, that it is good to give thanks to the LORD, for He IS good and His merciful loving kindness endures for ever!


In the multitude of my thoughts within me Thy comforts delight my soul.
Psalm 94:19


Bless you ....><>

-----------------------------
this is one of my most favourite songs and i do recommend you play it and listen, especially if you have any concerns in the evenings, but at any time, the Word of the Lord is True and a Light unto you
