Exodus 14:13,14 And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen today, ye shall see them again no more forever. The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.
Moses and Aaron would tell the children of Israel after the report of the 10 spies created fear and panic among the people of God: “Only rebel not ye against the LORD, neither fear ye the people of the land; for they are bread for us: their defence is departed from them, and the LORD is with us: fear them not.” (Numbers 14:9)
Elisha told his young servant who was afraid because a host of enemy Syrian horses and chariots surrounded the city where they were: “… Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them.” (2 Kings 6:16)
The Spirit of God gave to Jahaziel a prophecy when Judah and Jerusalem were surrounded by their enemies: “And he said, ‘Hearken ye, all Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem, and thou king Jehoshaphat, Thus saith the LORD unto you, “Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God’s.”’” (2 Chronicles 20:15)
I have a question for you this morning, beloved. Why are these incredible events recorded in the Bible? They serve as reminders for that our God is The One that we can always rely upon and turn to. Are you in a storm this morning? A personal battle with sin or overwhelming circumstances? “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.” (Psalm 46:1-3)
Beloved, The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace. For the LORD your God is He that goeth with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you. Let us never forget that the Lord Jesus defeated the enemy on the cross of Calvary with the words, “It is finished!” (John 19:30) Those words can never be reversed! They can never be undone! Jesus IS our victory over fear!!
