Fighting for You

One of my friends is struggling a lot right now. Things seem to continue to go a little chaotic for her and she is finding it hard to hold onto God and His promises.

But today, in the midst of having finished a whole lot of work after working more than 8 hours through the night and being dead tired, I came across a promise that is made in the Bible. It is in Exodus 14v14: “The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.”

Every day there is going to be a battle, whether we see it and are aware of it or not. It may be physically tangible or in the spiritual realms. No matter how hard life gets, we need to know and hold onto the promise that God WILL fight for us and will come through for us. I know it gets tough, and I have been there, but God is so faithful and He won’t let us down.

It is easy to hold onto God and His beautiful promises when things seem to be going okay, but push us a little too far over the line and suddenly His promises are harder to hold onto and it is easier to forget how faithful He is in fighting for us. Even if we have seen it many times, Him fighting for us and delivering us time and time again, somehow we always forget and have to be reminded. But God is always true to what He promises in His Word, so keep holding on. You can be sure that He will fight for you, no matter what. God’s love is intense and He was serious about fighting for us when He let His Son die for us, so keep holding on.
