Deuteronomy – Children of God Must Maintain Confidence in God
(Passage: Deuteronomy 20,21,22)
God asked Israelites to demonstrate courage and not fear their enemies during battles. They must not fear the enemies that may outnumber them. Israelites must always remember God’s past faithfulness and have confidence for future victory.
Israelites must remain strong in God. The same God who brought them out of Egypt and made them to successfully pass through the wilderness would win any battle that may come their way in future.
God said to Israelites, “When thou goest out to battle against thine enemies, and seest horses, and chariots, and a people more than thou, be not afraid of them: for the Lord thy God is with thee, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt” – Deuteronomy 20:1.
Christians to Draw Their Strength from Past Victory
Children of God are to remain confident in God under whatever circumstance. No matter what type of battle we confront – God is able to overcome it and earn us victory.
Jehovah will fight for his children at all cost and award us victory. We must never forget that same God who is in control of the entire world affairs is on our sides, he is big enough to overpower whatever influence our enemies may have. He will override the enemies’ sophisticated skills and weapons for the sake of glorifying his name in our lives.
Dear God, I believe you are God of miracle, and you will surely perform your miracles to my advantage! Therefore, I am asking that you stand on my behalf to show yourself strong and glorify your name. Please silence my enemies and override their evil desires against my life.
Fight my battles and give me victory! Let me have rest in every aspect of my life so that I can have a testimony and glorify your holy name. For in the name of Jesus Christ I pray. Amen.
