You and What Army?

You and What Army?

If you are a believer and a person of faith, you are never fighting alone. God confirms this throughout the scriptures. If we can come to a place of understanding that God is to be placed on the throne of our lives, that allows Him to give us direction. As we follow His guidance, He walks the road of life with us. He wants to mature us and make us battle ready as we walk through life by faith. When we have God on our side, we have all we need to be victorious. God is all the army we need in the heat of battle.

Here are a few noteworthy scriptures about God's ever present help:

1. God is with us in positions of leadership as we guide others:

Joshua 1:9 KJVS Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.

2. God is with us when we are surrounded by enemies:

2 Kings 6:15-17 NIV When the servant of the man of God got up and went out early the next morning, an army with horses and chariots had surrounded the city. “Oh no, my lord! What shall we do?” the servant asked. [16] “Don't be afraid,” the prophet answered. “Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” [17] And Elisha prayed, “Open his eyes, Lord, so that he may see.” Then the Lord opened the servant's eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.

3. God is with us as we walk through the trials of life:

Psalm 23:4 KJVS Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

4. God is with us as we work on His behalf:

Matthew 28:20 KJVS Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world.

5. God is with us through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit which empowers us to do His work:

Acts 1:8 KJVS But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

6. God stands with the oppressed to bring about justice:

Psalm 103:6 KJVS The Lord executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed.

God and His army of angels are life's foxhole fighters. The above scriptures are good reminders. Feel free to read them in context to understand how committed God is to us. We do have a friend who sticks closer to us than a brother. Me and what army? Me and God!

As David said to Goliath "....who is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should defy the armies of the living God?"
