We need to research the places in Scripture that are the foundation and basis for our faith. In discovering these truths, our hope remains secure and we hold on. Too often all we know if what we hear from the Pastor's message or the television preacher. We only know what we know from books and devotionals but we don't sit down one day and just say, "Let me see what's in here for me." I challenge you to go beyond the few verses I shared here. God has a treasure of promises waiting for you.
Go claim them.
For the LORD your God is the one who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you victory."
One of you routs a thousand, because the LORD your God fights for you, just as he promised.
Wherever you hear the sound of the trumpet, join us there. Our God will fight for us!"
When you go to war against your enemies and see horses and chariots and an army greater than yours, do not be afraid of them, because the LORD your God, who brought you up out of Egypt, will be with you.
The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still."
The LORD your God, who is going before you, will fight for you, as he did for you in Egypt, before your very eyes,
'Do not fear them, for the LORD your God is the one fighting for you.
After I looked things over, I stood up and said to the nobles, the officials and the rest of the people, "Don't be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, who is great and awesome, and fight for your families, your sons and your daughters, your wives and your homes."
The LORD Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.
