GOD OUR PROTECTOR

Bible Text: Be strong and courageous! Don’t be afraid or discouraged because of the king of Assyria or his mighty army, for there is a power far greater on our side! He may have a great army, but they are merely men. We have the Lord our God to help us and to fight our battles for us! Hezekiah’s words greatly encouraged the people. 2 Chronicles 32:7-8

Our tendency is to think that when we are genuinely faithful to God we will be immune from attack. The experience of Hezekiah and countless other men and women of God tell us otherwise.
Hezekiah understood that the defence of Israel did not depend only on walls and towers and shields and water supplies; it also depended on the strength, courage, and determination of their soldiers.

While the bulk of his army was busy at Lachish, Sennacherib sent some men to Jerusalem to prepare for the siege, especially with psychological combat.

These servants of Sennacherib tried to shake the trust Hezekiah and the people of Jerusalem had in the Lord. But hear what Hezekiah’s said in the above text “Be strong and courageous! Don’t be afraid or discouraged because of the king of Assyria or his mighty army, for there is a power far greater on our side” Are you feeling defeated now, or being captive?

God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel, will deliver you today from every obstacles next to your breakthrough in Jesus name.
