You're Almost There! Stand Strong!
Don't give up; stand strong and you will cross over to the promise God has for you.
The Israelites were on their way out of Egypt, and they gave way to fear and wanted to go back to Egypt. You are on the verge of crossing over, don't stop now!
Those oppressive attacks, those negative emotions, tell them to go in the name of Jesus! They have no place! You are a child of God; a child of the King! Stop giving way to the attacks of the enemy; he did not die for you! The Word of God says that we can "take every thought captive to the obedience of Jesus Christ." So, do it!
"This is what the LORD says: ‘Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army, for the battle does not belong to you, but to God. Tomorrow you are to march down against them. You will see them coming up the Ascent of Ziz, and you will find them at the end of the valley facing the Wilderness of Jeruel. You need not fight this battle. Take up your positions, stand firm, and see the salvation of the LORD on your behalf, O Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid or discouraged. Go out and face them tomorrow, for the LORD is with you.’ ”
Trust in Jesus! You are almost there! Don't give up now! The enemy knows it and that is why he is trying so hard to get you to go back to your "Egypt," so to speak. Don't fall for it, trust God instead!
"“Hear me, O people of Judah and Jerusalem. Believe in the LORD your God, and you will be upheld; believe in His prophets, and you will succeed.”
Then Jehoshaphat consulted with the people and appointed those who would sing to the LORD and praise the splendor of His holiness. As they went out before the army, they were singing:
“Give thanks to the LORD, for His loving devotion endures forever.”
The moment they began their shouts and praises, the LORD set ambushes against the men of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir who had come against Judah, and they were defeated. The Ammonites and Moabites rose up against the inhabitants of Mount Seir, devoting them to destruction. And when they had made an end to the inhabitants of Seir, they helped to destroy one another.
When the men of Judah came to a place overlooking the wilderness, they looked for the vast army, but there were only corpses lying on the ground; no one had escaped. Then Jehoshaphat and his people went to carry off the plunder, and they found on the bodies an abundance of goods and valuables —more than they could carry away. They were gathering the plunder for three days because there was so much.
The Joyful Return
On the fourth day, they assembled in the Valley of Beracah, where they blessed the LORD. Therefore that place is called the Valley of Beracah to this day.
Then all the men of Judah and Jerusalem, with Jehoshaphat at their head, returned joyfully to Jerusalem, for the LORD had made them rejoice over their enemies. So they entered Jerusalem and went into the house of the LORD with harps, lyres, and trumpets.
And the fear of God came upon all the kingdoms of the lands when they heard that the LORD had fought against the enemies of Israel. Then Jehoshaphat’s kingdom was at peace, for his God had given him rest on every side." (II Chronicles 20:20-30)
Trust God, stand strong and He WILL get you through victoriously. It is promised!
