Verse of the day.
The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.
Pharaoh had finally let the people of Israel leave Egypt after God had shown several signs and wonders to terrify him and his people. However, Pharaoh was destined for destruction because God had promised to be “honoured through” him (that is, he’d make an example of him). He eventually met his end in the Red sea when he pursued the Israelites who once again were terrified seeing their pursuer before God ended him.
Many times, we are like the Israelites when adverse situations come roaring at us. We murmur, panic, grumble, insult, forsake and sometimes curse our birth, like Job – Job 3:1. These are natural but not the best responses to tough times.

The Lord will fight for you
We go through tough times for different reasons; Job went through his as a test, Jabez was cursed, David faced his punishment due to lust and lack of discipline and our Lord Jesus Christ endured it as a fulfillment of the gospel. However, regardless of the situation and circumstance, there is a promise that the Lord gives to His children, I’ll never leave you nor forsake you (Deuteronomy 31:6). One would think that the Israelites who are a lot like you and I would have held on to these promises especially seeing that God had brought them out of Egypt, but I’ve come to see that it’s so convenient to be upset rather than trust God.
BUT, God never flinches or changes. He is the same yesterday (in the time of the Israelites), today (our present day) and forever (when we are long gone) – Hebrews 13:8. He can always be held accountable to His promises to fight for us regardless.
God is not about to leave you hanging. If He brought you this far despite the hurdles, He is not going to abandon you. So, relax. Don’t lose faith and hope, rather, have confidence in God. Don’t let your current situation rob you of your peace and joy because God will fight for you.

Father, I thank You for past victories, and I invite You into my current situation to please fight for me where needful.
