Psalm 18:39
“For thou hast girded me with strength unto the battle: thou hast subdued under me those that rose up against me.”

June 6th, 1944, the largest amphibious invasion in all of history took place on the stormy beaches of Normandy. Over 160,000 Allied forces invaded the European coast across many beachheads. Chances are you've known or heard of someone who was there and actually lived it. If you have the opportunity, ask them about it; ask them how it affected their lives and changed their perspectives on life. So much bloodshed and battle, and yet it was not in vain. Those men fought to preserve the freedom we enjoy today. If you know someone who was there, then thank them.

We should never take for granted what the soldiers of World War II gave for us. The men and women who serve our country bravely gift much more than just their time. They preserve our freedom and secure our borders from our enemies. We should all pray for those in the Armed Forces.

Yet we must never forget about our own battle. We are soldiers for the Lord, and as such, we fight day in and day out against our adversary. It is a hard struggle and tough fight, yet God’s children have the victory already. For those men storming the beaches on D-Day, they had to believe victory was theirs. For the Believer, the victory has already been won; but they must also believe, and continue to fight.

Remember what the soldiers of WWII gave for us today. But also, thank the Lord for bringing you this far in your battle. If He brought you this far, rest assured He will bring you the rest of the way.

Help us, Lord, as we're working the row, cutting down the briers, moving back the rocks, and pulling out the stumps, the front line, give us courage, Lord, big strong hearts, buckle up the armor; give us great strength and the power of Thy Spirit.
