Text: Deuteronomy 31:8
And the Lord, he it is that doth go before thee; he will be with thee, he will not fail thee, neither forsake thee: fear not, neither be dismayed.
Our God is great. He is the Creator of all things and there is nothing He created that He does not have power over. Anyone that is on the side of the Lord has a guaranty therefore that God is able to quell for him any uprising at any point in time. But why is it that some are perceived to be on the side of the Lord and still end up crushed by the enemy? One of the reasons for the crushing is their fear. Fear is the opposite of faith. Fear is the denial of the existence of God. For anyone to take benefit of God, the same must believe that He is. Once you tolerate fear in your heart regarding any situation, it is an assertion that God is unable to solve the situation for you. What He has done before, He can do again and again. Even those things you have never heard or seen Him do, once you can imagine it, the Lord is able to do it for you. He separated between Israel and their assailants using the pillar of cloud by day and the pillar of fire by night. He can and will do the same for you. His promises are Yea and in Him Amen. He will not deny Himself. Since He has assured you of being with you, rest assured that He will do as He says. That situation cannot have you submerged because the Lord is available for you. Simple counsel is Fear not and abstain from iniquity which are the substances that stand to block the blessings of God from an individual, group or nation.
Lord, I hold on to your promise; I will not be afraid of whatever the enemy thrusts at me. I will abide in you by the help of your Spirit. Therefore Lord, please arise for me at this time and put your enemies in my life and affairs to flight in Jesus name.
