Contend (verb): to strive or vie in contest or rivalry or against difficulties
In Isaiah 49: 25 God tells us that He will contend against those who contend against us. That's a pretty cool thought. We don't have to fight for or defend ourselves. God's word tells us that He will do it. That is what made going out to our car this morning that much easier and made the sight we saw that much more bearable.
Two weeks ago, I tripped over a brick going to my car which caused me to discover this
This morning we awoke to this
So, this, my friends, is how it was raining
And why should we waste our time worrying about something that God will take of for us. He will contend with those who have contended against us. He will restore to us what has been taken away. I am not better or more efficient than God, so I cam going to leave it to Him.
