It has taken me years to fully understand that God really does love me and that He IS FOR ME! After all, doesn't the Scripture say that "...if God is for us,, who (can be) against us...? (Ro 8:31)(AMP). Yes, we serve a very BIG God and nothing is impossible for Him. So, why can't I trust Him to fight for me and on my behalf? It's because so many times I can't let go! Can you let go? Interesting, isn't it? We really do believe that we can fix our own problems- when ultimately it's God who knows all things. We are afraid to give all our concerns to God...like He might forget about them and not do anything about them!
We Need Not Fear Our Enemy
We need not fear our enemies because none of them is more powerful than God. It's clear that our enemy is against us- but let me remind you that is his only position! Our God is IN us, AROUND us, OVER us, SURROUNDING us, and THROUGH us! It's time for us, as believers, regardless of denomination, gender or color to let go of our fear and trust God.
Ps. 125:1-2 says:
"Those who trust in, lean on, and confidently hope in the Lord are like Mount Zion, which cannot be moved but abides and stands fast forever. As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the Lord is round about His people from this time forth and forever."
We are like a mighty mountain which are not to be moved by the storms that confront us. If God promises to surround us then that means that He is holding us firmly and not allowing us to fall! He promises to never leave us or forsake us. (see 1 Corinthians 3:16).
Rise Up, Army of the Lord!
Since we know these things to be true, let's not focus on circumstances but rather get prepared for any battle without feeling threatened or fearful. Our God will fight for us! We have nothing to fear!
Take up your sword, which is God's Word and let Him fight for you today!
Hebrews 4:12 "For the Word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart."
