God fights for Us

October 21, 2015

“The Lord says, ‘Don’t be afraid!  Don’t be paralyzed by this mighty army!  For the battle is not yours, but God’s!”

This was about the Jewish people, one of the times they were being attacked.  But promises such as these pertain to all God’s people, for God never changes and His Love toward all His people is eternal.  So for us the message is:  When you see great enemies, powerful foes, things too big and fearsome for you to fight on your own, the battle is the Lord’s.  Whenever God’s people are obeying Him and trying to do good, there will always be opposition.  Our enemy the devil is very real and very powerful, although at this time God has him on a short leash.  When we are frightened by the greatness and terribleness of the opposition, we need to remember, God is in control, and He will fight the battle for us.  We are to keep our eyes on Him, keep our faith and keep our courage.  God is the ultimate power, and there is no being in the universe that can prevail over Him.  As Jesus said in Matthew 28:18 “All authority in Heaven and on Earth has been given to me.”  He’s got us covered.
