Do not be afraid of them; the Lord your God himself will fight for you. Deuteronomy 3:22
Battles are occurring on a regular basis nearly everywhere a person goes. Most of the time people do not see those who are fighting behind the scenes to win the fight.
Behind the scenes, there are policemen, the military and attorneys who are helping to fight the enemy to help the citizens. Sometimes their work is directly seen, but most often it is out of public sight of most people. Their job is to gain victory over those who are doing something wrong and are an enemy to the general public.
As Moses was telling Joshua to go over the Jordan River and take the lands, he told him to not be afraid of the enemy, but that God would fight the battles for him.
Every person has at least one enemy and that enemy is Satan. Along with Satan is the world that follows him. Satan is out to steal, kill and destroy every person and everything in the end. He will use whoever and whatever he can to destroy anyone who chooses to believe in Jesus.
Believers not only have the enemy against them personally, but this enemy is against those whom they need to be a witness too pointing them to salvation in Jesus. God desires that every believer to go into the world and be His witness and go into battle against the corrupt systems and ways of this fallen world.
This battle is bigger than any one person, but God goes ahead and helps win the battle. He will fight for the believer and for those who don’t believe to draw them to Himself.
Even though the world is against the believer, he must not be afraid, knowing that God will fight the battle and bring about victory in the end.
You will have troubles, challenges and enemies in your life. The world wants to conquer you and destroy you, pulling you away from Jesus. They also want to destroy those whom God is placing in your path to be a witness to.
Although the battle is great, do not be afraid. Yes, the enemy is greater than you, but not greater than God. God is on your side and will fight the battles for you if you will trust and obey Him with all of your life.
Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Lord and Savior; that God will help you not be afraid of the enemy or battles in front of you; that you will trust God’s fighting for you; and that God will give you victory over the enemy in your life and around those you must be a witness to.
