HE Makes Wars To Cease

"He maketh wars to cease..." (Psalm 46:9).

What welcome news to the child of God shattered and torn by warfare in the
soul! The battle in my soul is his battle, and he alone can end it. My loving
Father will not permit the flesh or the devil to bully me into defeat. My war
is clearly defined by James, who wrote:

"From whence come wars and fighting’s among you? Come they not hence, even of
your lusts that war in your members? (James 4:1). These lusts include
covetousness, pride and envy.

Throughout the ages, holy men of God have asked the same question, "Will the
lust-war in me ever end while I am alive?" Is that not the same question being
asked today by those who love the Lord completely?

The answer, of course, is that the war must and will end, and it will
inevitably be followed by the greatest peace ever known. But how does the war
end, and who ends it? If it is my battle and my obligation to end it, God must
show me how. If it is truly his battle, then he must end it in his time and way—and give me patience while the fighting goes on, knowing he loves me
through it all.

The Greek word used by James is stratenomai, which suggests a battle against
carnal tendencies; a soldier at war. It is derived from stratia, which means a
host, an army encamped. Didn't David speak of hosts encamped against us? Our
carnal inclinations come against us as an army, an evil host determined to
undermine and keep us in turmoil in hopes of shipwrecking our faith by
attacking our minds with fear and unbelief.

If you study the Hebrew word for war used by David in Psalm 46:9, it becomes a
cause of great rejoicing. It is milchamah which means to feed on, consume, and

What the Word is actually saying to us here is simply marvelous: God is going
to stop the enemy from consuming us, from devouring us. He will no longer
permit lust to feed on us or overcome us. Be encouraged! God will cause our
lust-war to cease. This is God’s battle—and he never loses.

*Praise GOD for this message from David Wilkerson.......
