Have you ever felt that the battles of life are just too great, or that you are just overcome with the conflicts and struggles you face each day?
The people of Israel felt that way when they looked at all the enemies who lived in the Promised Land. Even thought God had given Israel the land, they would have to fight many battles against great powerful armies in order to possess the land. The people were often discouraged and felt like giving up.
But Moses gave the people courage when he said in Deut. 3:22, “ye shall not fear them; for the Lord your God, he shall fight for you.” And fight he did, as he gave Israel miraculous victories against impossible odds as they went into Canaan.
The same God who fought for Israel is still able to fight for his own children today. The Bible says that we are adopted into God’s family when we accept his some Jesus Christ by faith. As member of the family of God we can call on him in time of need and let him fight some of life’s battles for us. Call on him today if you need your heavenly father’s help.
