Somedays simply become a battle! You think all is marching forward... when you turn around and find yourself in the middle of an ambush.
The bill you didn't expect wipes out your bank balance.
The friend you thought loyal speaks words of slander.
The job you considered stable collapses beneath you.
Don't lose HOPE! For God is your mighty Answer in the Battle!
Consider how He rescued the men of Judah. They were outnumbered 2 to 1. Yet their king, Abijah proclaimed high on a hill... "But as for us, Yahweh is our God. We have not abandoned Him... Look, God and His priests are with us at our head. The trumpets are ready to sound the charge against you. Israelites, don’t fight against the Lord God of your ancestors, for you will not succeed.”
1 Chronicles 13:10, 12
But as the battle began, Abijah and his men realized their enemy had set an ambush behind them.... so they cried out to the Lord and the priests before them blew their trumpets to the Lord.
When the men of Judah raised the battle cry, God routed Jeroboam and all Israel before Abijah and Judah. So the Israelites fled before Judah, and God handed them over to them. The Israelites were subdued at that time. The Judahites succeeded because they depended on the Lord, the God of their ancestors.
2 Chronicles 13:15-16, 18
Are you able, even in the ambush to cry out to the Lord?
Are you willing, even in the battle, to lift your voice to Him?
For He is the same God today as long ago. And He is willing to defend us... to fight for us and cause us to succeed, if only we will depend upon Him.
Let us not be defeated by the ambush.
Let us shout aloud for Yahweh's help.
For He is able to subdue our enemy.
And He is our Answer in the Battle.
from my heart...
I write as an overflow... an expression of my true love for God and with a deep desire to encourage others in their day to day lives. For we can only find peace, joy, and satisfaction when we yield to the One who yielded His life for us.
