Verse of the day
For the Lord your God is He who goes with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you.
If you find the Almighty God physically go through life’s battles with you, what would your disposition be? Would you still let fear have a foothold in your life or would you, fearing nothing, fight with every courage you find? But, isn’t this same God with you as you speak? Shouldn’t you therefore be as bold and assured in living as you would if you physically saw Him? For indeed, on your behalf, He fights those battles that you aren’t aware of.
When Israelites trusted God absolutely for victory in battles, He fought for them. At times, He gave strategies and taught them how to approach the enemy; other times, He practically took over the battle, and fought how He pleased. This shows how deliberate He is about our cause.
The physical victories they won should do well to assure us that now, in Christ, we are totally secure. We do not fear what anyone can do against us in our pursuit of Him and His will. Be it persecutions, trials, temptations, pressures, having a Father who watches over us renders us to be undefeatable when we play our part. We are His anointed, His house, He’ll suffer no one to do us harm. With the weapons Christ has given us, and the assurance of His presence in battle, we can only win if we align with Him. The knowledge of this truth instils courage in us and causes us to put our absolute trust in Him.
Dad, I know that you are with me to fight my battles, therefore, in the midst of trials, temptations, persecutions, I will no longer fear but trust You absolutely.
