The Battle Is the LORD’s

by Darla Noble

For the LORD your God is he who goes with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you.

Deuteronomy 20:4

This verse says it all. You are not alone. God is with you. You don’t have to fight your battles or overcome your struggles. 

Do you remember God’s dramatic miracle on the Red Sea? This story (Exodus 14:15-31) was written to give you confidence that God will do it for you as He did when He fought for His people at the Red Sea.  

He said, “Don’t be afraid. Just stand still and watch the LORD rescue you today. The Egyptians you see today will never be seen again. The LORD himself will fight for you. Just stay calm” (Exodus 14:14 NLT).  

Imagine watching the drama! The Israelites crossed the Red Sea through a dry path God created in the middle of the sea. 

The entire enemy army tried to follow the Israelites to attack them, but God said, “No!” He got rid of the dry path, and all the enemy troop died.

Yes, today, God will fight and overcome for you. Your enemies may be bigger than you are, but God is bigger than us all. Let God wrap you in His loving arms. Trust in Him that He will keep His promises to protect you, direct you, provide for you and bless you. 

Prayer: LORD, help me fully trust in You, and experience Your miracles all around me today. In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.
