God IS Fighting for You

Jul 10, 2019 | Articles, Pastor Hank Kunneman

I want to remind you that God IS fighting for you. The phrase “the Lord will fight for you” found in Exodus 14:14, is very powerful.   From this verse, we could rightfully refer to God as the “Lord of the Fight” because He is the one fighting our battles.

Of course, we have heard of the “lord of the flies,” who is the devil, but OUR God is THE Lord of all, the LORD of the FIGHT! The Bible refers to God as the Lord of Hosts or a man of war (Exodus 15:3). This is because He fights on behalf of His people and we can rejoice in the fact that He has never lost a battle and He NEVER will!

This means no matter what you are facing, be encouraged because not only has Jesus already won the victory for you, but He is fighting for you right now! Romans 10:13 says, if you call upon the name of the Lord you will be saved. Of course this speaks of your eternal salvation, but the word “saved” in this verse is the Greek word Sozo. It literally means to “make safe” and rescue from danger. It also means heal, preserve, protect and make whole. It reveals that whatever our need may be, God will intervene and fight for you!

You are not without help and not without hope. Rise up today and call on His name because the Lord goes before you in victory. He is the Lord of the Fight!
