Every time we experience ups and downs, we all ask God, “Why me?” just like a child gazing up at his father. Many people see the difficulties we face as enormous, with no discernible light at the end of the tunnel.

The saying, “God gives His toughest battles to His strongest soldiers,” may be heard throughout any crisis. Perhaps this quote, set on a solid-color or visually beautiful social media background, is intended to inspire us to carry on under the challenges of this difficult moment. Although the term may seem uplifting or even harmless, the notions it contains are anything but scriptural.

Does God Give His Toughest Battles To His Strongest Soldiers?

Why does God send His weakest soldiers into the toughest battles? Everybody experiences their most challenging battles. Nobody survives it without suffering from several wounds and other war-related injuries. Suffering is part of being human, which means that we all go through difficulty and uncertainty because of the nature of sin and its impact on the world.

Defining Battle

We can define a battle as the relentless effort to overcome or achieve something in order to obtain that which one desires since this definition best fits the situation. Ephesians 6:2 gives us the heads-up that, although we may say we might beat them with our human and sensual power, we do not fight wars against mere mortals.

Strongest Fighters

God makes us weak to show His strength, and He gives us struggles to show that we are only strong when we acknowledge our weakness and rely on Him for support. Our struggles demonstrate God’s strength. We are knocked down by struggles; perhaps God permits the storms to come into our lives so we will fall to our knees and worship Him.

We Are Not Stronger Than Our God

We dispense with our spiritual armor when we think we can win the battle with our willpower. We lose our own understanding of the fact that the Holy Spirit resides inside us, which is the only reason we can even engage in any struggle. Thinking we can handle a battle leaves out the need for God. We must depend on God to change us and draw us nearer to Him.

The Hardest Battles Produce The Toughest Soldiers

Even in the worst battles, God is working on good things for every believer. God recognizes His promises and the words He has spoken. Romans 8:28 states, “And we know that for those who love God and are called according to His plan for them, God causes all things to work together for good.”

The Privilege Of Being God’s Chosen Soldiers

We know from experience that suffering binds our souls without allowing us to see divinity. Still, each adversity makes you more human and makes you recognize your own strength by teaching you to respect what you have and to be more appreciative and grateful.

God Is Always With Us During Our Battles

The Bible promises that God will fight alongside us in every conflict and deliver us from all of our sufferings so that we can recover and win. God will comfort us, lead us, and shield us from any harm. He will also fortify our souls so we can comprehend the things He has set for us. Keep in mind that His love is eternal and that He will never abandon us.

We Are Stronger Than We Thought

God never abandons us to our own means and never subjects us to insurmountable challenges. Since He created us, our God is aware of who we are, so we should not worry because everything that happens to us has a purpose, no matter how unpleasant it may be.

Always Trust God

Even though we are unable to comprehend it, God has a concrete plan for our existence. When the problem is resolved, we will be heart-clear and aware of the unique and significant causes of our experiences. All of this will improve our ability to communicate with God.

How To Prepare For A Battle?

We do not need to worry because God has already warned us that we will face difficulties, and He has already won the war for the world. Furthermore, He would not give us a challenge we were not capable of overcoming.

God’s Armor

A warrior goes through a series of practices before engaging in combat, including donning armor to defend themselves from outside threats. Ordinary armor is insufficient for us as Christians and soldiers of Christ[1]. The armor of God is what we need.

Being rooted is essential for success when God sends His strongest soldiers into their most difficult wars. When we say “rooted,” we mean firmly established in His teachings and equipped with the entire armor of God to withstand the devil.

Should We Be The Strongest Soldiers?

Every believer faces unique challenges and battles. The difficulty of the battle does not imply an individual’s strength. Without the power of God, we could not endure trying times, struggles, or problems. Without Christ, we are nothing.
