Deuteronomy 20:1,4

 2016 Frieda P. Smith

 We all know the jingle by heart, “Like a good neighbor, State Farm is there!”

I love State Farm (I am a happy customer); however, there are certain circumstances in which State Farm, Allstate, Liberty Mutual, Nationwide, Geico, Progressive, etc. cannot provide help.

In Deuteronomy 20:1, the Word of the Lord declares, “When you go out to battle against your enemies, and see horses and chariots and people more numerous than you, do not be afraid of them; for the Lord your God is with you…”

The writer declared, “When you go out to battle…”

Not “if”“when”.  It is going to happen.  It is happening right now.

Some of us are battling arrogance and ignorance right now.  Others are battling addictions and abuse right now.  Someone reading  this post is battling a spirit of depression and suicide right now.

When we look around, we see “horses and chariots and people more numerous” than us.  It appears we are ill-equipped and outnumbered to win.  Hence, the enemy taunts us to give up.

In situations like these, if you have fully surrendered your life to the Lord Jesus Christ, do not bother to call State Farm; they cannot help you.

You do not need them anyway, for Deuteronomy 20:4 reads, “For the Lord your God is He who goes before you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you.”.  

My friend, do not be afraid.  Do not tremble.  You are going to overcome.  You are going to make it because…

The Lord Your God is With You!
