"Friends, do not avenge yourselves; instead, leave room for His wrath. For it is written: 'Vengeance belongs to Me; I will repay,' says the Lord...Do not be conquered by evil, but conquer evil with good." (Romans 12:19-21)

  1. I'm not completely sure what 'go to war' means but from what I understand from the passage, God told the Israelites not to go to war or cause trouble with certain nations that they were passing through to get to the promised land. So I think that 'go to war' means pursuing a path, a lifestyle or claiming what you think is right and what you deserve. I have often attempted to 'go to war' without God. Whether it be pursuing my own selfish ambitions, or doing what I think is right for my life I have always ended up lost and unhappy. I am constantly asking the Lord to show me His path for me and to stop me if I am following a path that isn't his plan for me.
