“When you go to war against your enemies, you might see horses and chariots.
Their army might be bigger than yours. But don’t be afraid of them. The Lord your God
will be with you. He brought you out of Egypt.”
As I read this scripture I look at the battles I have faced and still face. There is no battle I have
thought was a breeze. Every battle has been intense, bigger than me.
There is no battle that has been small. The purpose of the enemy’s attack is to take me out.
He doesn’t attack just for kicks, no! His motivation is real, deadly.
How many times I have felt overwhelmed and powerless because of the trials and storms that have
come my way. The scary truth is that without YAH the enemy would have snuffed me out a long
Israel were called by YAH to a land flowing with milk and honey. In the natural that was
mission impossible! They would not be able to possess the promise land because the nations
they would have to face were stronger and mightier than they were. To possess the promise
land they would have to face giants! Never mind the promise land, they had to leave Egypt first!
Like I said, mission impossible!
Let’s look at two scriptures,
“They told Moses,”We went to the land where you sent us. It is a land where much food grows!
Here is some of its fruit. But the people who live there are strong. Their cities are walled and large.
We even saw some Anakites there. ”
Numbers 13:27, 28
“Then Caleb told the people near Moses to be quiet. Caleb said, “We should go up and take the land
for ourselves. We can do it.
But the men who had gone with him said, “We can’t attack those people. They are stronger than we are.”
Numbers 13:30, 31
“We can’t attack those people. they are stronger than we are.”
The spies were correct technically speaking. They were weaker than the people occupying the promise land.
They were never going to defeat them on their own. But that is why they needed the Lord. With
Him on their side they would defeat the stronger nations.
No matter how threatening the trials we face are, we need to know that YAH is with us and because
He is with us we will come out victorious. No matter how hard things get, we will be saved not because
we are strong enough but because YAH is the One who is strong enough.
As I end this post I want to leave you with one final thought.
The storms that come our way will always be bigger than us but we are not alone as we face them.
So maybe you feel overwhelmed because of the bills you have to pay and you feel like there is no
way out, know that there is a way out because YAH is with you.
Maybe your family broke up and your future is suddenly unclear, know that things will work out
for your good because the Lord is with you.
No matter the problem you are facing right now, know that the Lord of Hosts is fighting for you.
The devil will not win. He is a defeated foe and doesn’t stand a chance against the Lord of Lords!
Don’t be discouraged, put all of your hope in the Lord. He will help you in your most trying time.
Where you are weak He is strong!
