“Risk” is one of my families favorite games. The object of the game: conquer the world with your army.

3 different strategies of playing Risk:
1. Sit quietly and build your army. (Hoping not to be destroyed)
2. Start battling right away. (Which causes the army to weaken)
3. “Police” the game board. (Making sure one player does not become too strong)

Each strategy has it’s own strengths and weaknesses. Sometimes a player may realize their strategy is not working and choose a different battle plan.

Battle in Life
Are you going through a battle right now? Do you feel defeated?
What is your strategy?
Sit quietly and allow yourself to get destroyed.
Get run over and beat down… becoming weak.
Move into your battle alone.
Give God control. (Completely letting go and trusting Him)
Let HIM fight your battle. (Which makes us stronger)
Let God conquer the enemy. (Victory)

The bible tells us, “The Lord himself will fight for you. Just stay calm.” Exodus 14:14 Give God TOTAL control. Pray. Do not be shaken, do not be moved. Stand strong with The Lord, as He is always with you.

The Lord is our GUARD! He surrounds us. He defends us.
