You might not realize it, but you go into battle every day. The fact that you can’t see your enemies doesn’t mean that they aren’t there. When faced with life’s daily struggles (financial issues, illness, loneliness), we can sometimes lapse into fear and anxiety. In order to maintain your peace when faced with difficulties, there is something you need to remember…
If God brings you to it, he will see you through it!
The Lord is always by your side and will grant you to grace to handle any problem that you encounter. There are no exceptions. He is always in control.
Do Not Be Afraid!
As they prepared to enter the promised land, the Israelites were afraid. The land they were about to enter was inhabited by powerful enemies. They might have been outnumbered, but they were not underdogs. Why not? Because God was on their side. Here’s what Moses told them:
When you go out to war against your enemies and you see horses and chariots and an army greater than your own, you shall not be afraid of them, for the LORD, your God, who brought you up from the land of Egypt, will be with you. When you are drawing near to battle, the priest shall come forward and speak to the army, and say to them, “Hear, O Israel! Today you are drawing near for battle against your enemies. Do not be weakhearted or afraid, alarmed or frightened by them. For it is the LORD, your God, who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies and give you victory.”(Deuteronomy 20:1-4)
The same message applies to you. Don’t be afraid. God is on your side. He is all powerful and will not desert you. If he brings you to it, he will bring you through it. Period!
