The LORD Will Fight for You

You do not have to fight your own battles, for the Lord said, “Vengeance is mine; I will repay.” If our enemies hear silence from us, then they ought to fear, for that is when God is preparing a response on our behalf.

“The LORD will fight for you, and you have only to be silent.”

(Exodus 14:14)

No manner of threat to our lives can sway us from believing Jesus is our Lord and Savior. Others may torment us, they may persecute us, and they may throw us into the fire, but if God is for us, who can be against us?

Whatever sufferings we may endure at the hands of our persecutors, they will know, they cannot take away our salvation through Christ. All their works, He will count as dross. None of them shall escape.

Our hope rests in the Lord. He will take care of our enemies. He will intervene on our behalf. No affliction is greater than God’s judgment, for it is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. The Lord will fight for you.

  1. Reblogged this on Encouraging-Grace and commented:
    A wonderful post by Jack Flacco of Look to God blog. I am waiting on a call from someone in my family who needs to talk to me ASAP according to their email. They can be a highly stressful person to deal with, But as the scripture says – I need not worry just be silent.
    Read on for more wisdom.

  2. Powerful Message. This is it. This is the perfect style, length, average amount of words that captivate present day ‘online readers’. Anything more and attention spans quickly fall off a cliff. The GOOD Lord will indeed fight for us and does every single day. He already gave His life for us. We must know when to stand still and WATCH GOD IN AWE SWEEP AND CLEAN THE ENEMY RIGHT OFF THEIR FEET. And we must know when GOD- directs us otherwise. Being able to hear that CLEAR DIRECTION is essential and paramount.

  3. “If it had not been the Lord who was on our side, when men rose up against us…” Ps 124:2

    If it had not been the Lord who was on our side… Daniel would have been eaten of the Lions, If it had not been the Lord who strengthened Peter through his crucifixion, if it had not been the Lord who has stood with us until now… where would we be? We owe all things to him… As He has been so will He continue to be.
