SCRIPTURE: “The Lord shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.” – Exodus 14:14
The Lord is a Man of war. He fights battles the way no man can. He has different battle strategies that are beyond human knowledge and comprehension. His arsenal is full of various weapons to fight each battle accordingly. God never fights all battles the same way! The enemy is never a threat to Him.
Unfortunately, many Christians find it difficult to trust God when they are confronted with battles. Men easily trust in their own power as against God, forgetting that God is our present help in times of trouble. Some are carried away by the fear of the enemy or situation. The hymn writer wrote: “God moves in a mysterious way His wonders to perform…..” Our battles become a walkover when God fights for us. To continue in our own strength or strategy will amount to useless struggle. Declare this loud and clear: “O God, arise and fight for me, in the name of Jesus”.
From the beginning of the Bible to the end, God fights to defend His children and to make them victorious. He arose to fight for the Israelites against Pharaoh; king of Egypt, who stubbornly pursued them to the Red Sea, believing there was no escape for them. Physically, seeing the sea before them and the enemies. behind, they were scared to the point of losing faith and strength. But miraculously, God moved in His mysterious way. He gave His word of assurance to them through Moses, as stated in today’s memory verse. Truly, they held their peace in the face of this great obstacle and behold, the sea parted -into two. The Israelites went through to safety but the enemies perished in it. Beloved, God will do the same for you, if you would put your faith in Him
However, if you are not on the Lord’s side and doing His will, it will be difficult for Him to fight for you. Also, fear can become an obstacle to your victory. It could hinder the move of God’s power. God instructed Moses to warn the children of Israel not to be afraid. He is speaking to you today: Fear Not! The enemies you see now, you shall see them no more, in Jesus’ name.
- Father Lord, arise and fight my battles, in the name of Jesus.
- O Lord of Host, dispatch Your heavenly military squad to put my enemies to flight, in the name of Jesus.
- In a way beyond human knowledge, O God, arise and deal with my adversaries in an uncommon manner, in the name of Jesus.
- By the power that divided the Red Sea, O God, arise and let my enemies perish in the Red Sea of their own making, in the name of Jesus.
- O God, arise and burn the enemies’ chariots to ashes, in the name of Jesus.
- My enemies, dig your own pits and perish there, in the name of Jesus.
- This battle is the Lord’s. O God, arise and defend Your interest in my life, in the name of Jesus.
