Jeremiah 14:11-16:13 / 1 Thessalonians 2:13-3:13 / Psalm 80:1-19 / Proverbs 25:1-5

Standout verse:

Jeremiah 15:20-21“And they will fight against you, but they shall not prevail against you; for I am with you to save you and deliver you”, says the Lord.  “I will deliver you from the hand of the wicked and redeem you from the grip of the terrible.”

GREATER IS HE THAT IS IN US THAN he WHO IS IN THE WORLD!  Will life bring with it pain, struggle and challenge? YES.  Will walking closely with the Lord amidst a fallen, broken and flagrantly debauch culture, be a fight? At times, definitely. 

But here’s the deal…WHATEVER WE FACE, GOD PROMISES TO BRING US THROUGH – HE WILL SAVE, DEFEND AND DELIVER US! If we have chosen to WHOLEHEARTEDLY follow Him, He promises never to abandon us or leave us to struggle on our own – with God on our side we will never get “taken out”. If we’ve been knocked down, He will rescue us - HE WILL FIGHT FOR US, AND WIN!  Anything we “go through” is something we can “grow through” when we are walking closely with the Lord.

God’s power is infinitely greater than the power of the enemy.  He will protect us and deliver us as we obediently walk where He is leading...SUCH GOOD TRUTH TO STAND ON!
