Are you battling against what appears to be insurmountable odds? Used up every weapon in your arsenal? Don’t know where to turn, or what to do? Feel like you’re out for the count? PLEASE STOP! Think on this:
The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace. (Exodus 14:14)
Now say it: The Lord will fight for me, and I shall hold my peace!
Here are just a few biblical accounts of God’s miraculous rescuing power and love!
-The Israelites and Pharaoh’s Army (the parting of the Red Sea) Exodus 14
-Joshua and Jericho (the march around the walls of the city) Joshua 6
-Gideon and the Midianites (a dream, trumpets, clay pots, and lanterns) Judges 7-8
-David and Goliath (5 stones and a sling) 1 Samuel 17
-Hezekiah and the Assyrians (a message to a king, a message from a prophet) Isaiah 37
Psalm 33: 16-22
No king is saved by the size of his army; no warrior escapes by his great strength.
A horse is a vain hope for deliverance; despite all its great strength it cannot save.
But the eyes of the Lord are on those who fear him, on those whose hope is in his unfailing love,
to deliver them from death and keep them alive in famine. We wait in hope for the Lord; he is our help
and our shield. In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name. May your unfailing love be with us, Lord, even as we put our hope in you.
The strength of man-made military might cannot stand against the Lord!!
