One day I heard Jordan say mommy, “its like we are at war”. I looked over at him and said what did you say? He said we are at war and I asked him where did that come from he said, I don’t know. At some point I realized God was speaking through Jordan. On a different day but close together, I happened to be emotional while driving to work. Jordan was of course with me as he had a rehabilitation appointment scheduled for that day. While my head was turned – thinking he could not hear or see me, he said out of the blue mommy, “this is a battle between God and satan, but God’s going to win”. I looked at him yet again and said, where did you get that from? He said nobody.

What the Lord gave to Jordan was encouragement for me, in knowing this was and is a spiritual battle of epic proportions. Why God chose Jordan, I can only imagine it was because of his child like faith. Here I am making this storm way more complicated and frustrating than it was. At the time, I was not hearing God as my fear and shaky faith was clouding all my senses: hearing, vision, touch. After I heard those few monumental words from God through Jordan, I knew I had to take my faith up a notch or two, or three. The keys were to know what I was dealing with, spiritual warfare. Which meant this could not be dealt with in the physical sense. Also, to know that what I saw at that time was temporary. I learned during this thing that God can’t operate in fear. It is like shutting the doors and windows to God.

Fast forwarding to, the time is now and Jordan has gone home to be with the Lord. agitation and aggravation is high from satan through individuals. Here it is I am at the finish line and still in this thing. I must continue to press on as I know God will be glorified at the end of the thing. As tied to my faith I continue to hold on to the things God gave Jordan. I must use those things as meat to fortify and sustain me along with HIS words and word. Inspite of… God will be glorified and we are victorious.

If you are in the midst of a spiritual battle of epic proportions just know God can’t lose. Hold on and don’t let go. Here are two scriptures that tie in:

For we’re not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places Ephesians 6:12 nlt.

 So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever 2 Cor. 4:18 nlt.

Here is a song that encouraged Jordan and I while going back and forth to Dallas for treatments. I hope it encourages you as well:
