Fighting For Us


READ:  Deuteronomy 20:2-4   When you prepare for battle, the priest must come forward to speak to the troops.  He will say to them, 'Listen to me, all you men of Israel!  Do not be afraid as you go out to fight your enemies today!  Do not lose heart or panic or tremble before them.  For the LORD your God is going with you!  He will fight for you against your enemies, and he will give you victory!'  

Sometimes I think we have this idea that God is up in the sky and he's too busy looking over the whole earth to be bothered with what is going on in our everyday lives.    I want to remind you today that this is just not true.   The LORD of HEAVEN's ARMIES sees you, hears you, and cares for you.    He guides you, protects you, and looks out for your every need.  Nothing to too small to carry to the throne of God.   Nothing!!!   He cares about each and every tiny thing (and big thing) in our life.    

Do you know  when you are in a battle (fiery trial) that this same HEAVENLY FATHER actually FIGHTS the BATTLE for you.  He goes ahead of you - much like he did for the Israelites.  He makes a way when there is no way, He parts the seas, and provides for your needs.    The battle is not ours - it is His and the victory will come through Him!   

Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you to deliver you, declares the Lord.”  Jeremiah 1:8

I don't know what each of you are facing, but I do know that our God is more than able to handle everything that we could ever go through.    Sometimes all we need to be is be silent and rest in Him.   Listen to this song "Fighting For Us" by Michael Farren and let it minister to you today.   And remember - the battle is not yours, because the Lord God loves you so much that He will fight for you and you can rest assured that with Him - you will win!!
