Who is fighting for you?


Exodus 14:14 (NIV): “The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still.”

Joshua 24:17-18 (NIV): “It was the LORD our God himself who brought us and our parents up out of Egypt, from that land of slavery, and performed those great signs before our eyes. He protected us on our entire journey and among all the nations through which we travelled. And the LORD drove out before us all the nations…”


Let us be determined this week to remember that:

God fights on our behalf. We are never alone in the battles we fight. Deuteronomy 31:6 (AMP) reminds us, “Be strong and courageous, do not be afraid or tremble in dread before them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not fail you or abandon you”. God is not only with us, but He provides for our every need. His provision for us allows us to be a mighty witness, and strength to the rest of the world.

God’s living and healing water brings victory over the battles of this world. In the book of John we read in chapter 7 verses 37-38 (NASB), Now on the last day, the great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, ‘If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink. The one who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, from his innermost being will flow rivers of living water.’” May we always remember God’s provision and faithfulness to those we read about in His Word, but also His faithfulness to us personally. He has always been there to meet our needs, and He fights for us to have the very best and to stand victoriously. Sometimes He changes the challenges, and sometimes He changes us, but we can look back and know that we can trust Him. Jesus offers us living water that will provide for our needs, and for the needs of the world around us. A heart that has been redeemed by God is able to bless others and bring life and light to the world. How exciting to rest in the promise that as God fills us, we become the fulfilment of Song of Songs 4:15 (NASB), You are a garden spring, a well of fresh water, and flowing streams from Lebanon”. This is how we work together with Jesus, to quench the thirst of a desperate and drowning world.

God helps us to fight the good fight of faith. We are sometimes fearful in our fights. May we realise that ‘faith over fear’ has the power to change our lives, and to impact the faith of the people around us as well. Fear can hold us back from the abundant life and the incredible purpose God has for us. What fear can you overcome in the season that you find yourself in today? Let’s declare with all of our hearts that we choose ‘Faith in God over fear’, so that we can fight the good fight of faith. From the book of Hebrews, chapter 13, verse 8 we learn, “Christ is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow”. As we are ‘still’ before the Lord daily, reading His Word and in prayer – we practise our faith, and He shows us that miracles still happen today! The key to unlocking miracles in our lives is faithful obedience to what He is asking of us. God has already paved a way; we just need to follow His path! Let us ask God to open our eyes to SEE His miraclesblessings and victories around us, and to unblock our ears to HEAR His instructions. May we have ‘blind faith and be courageous enough to be obedient, even when we don’t understand. That very act of submission enables God to fight for us, through all circumstances. So, let us rest before Him, knowing that in every blessing, and through every battle, our Lord is with us and is fighting for us!


Abba Father, thank You for the privilege of being here again, united together from all over the world in prayer. We are reminded that You are the One that refreshes us and fills us. Help us to remember Your grace and Your goodness and Your kindness.

Father God, we just want to come to You today and thank You for Your grace that is sufficient, that helps us every day in our healing journey. Thank You that we can really entrust every part of our being to You: spirit, body and soul. Lord, we commit to start getting to know who You are – because if we understand Whose we are, we will understand who we are. Lord, we ask You to bring to light any roots in our hearts that are keeping us from walking in the restored relationship that You have given to us through Christ. Bring it to light.  Help us and give us the courage to walk with You in the freedom and newness You have given us in the Spirit.

So, Father God, we thank You for boldness and courage to step into any situation. May we go where You go because we are confident that You will never leave us. In Jesus’ mighty name.

Dear Lord, as we look back over our lives we can see lots of different seasons. We can see times when we were up and times when we were down. But when we look back, we can see Your hand of provision and salvation, and how You were with us. You are the God that keeps His promises, that keeps us safe, that always leads us to green fields and waters where we can rest. Thank You that as we look forward, we can build on that faith with confidence that You will be faithful in what is coming in the same way that You have been with us in the past.

Father God, I do not have much to give, but all that I have and all that I am I give to You.  You are the Potter and I am the clay. Shape me and mould me into a vessel that can be used by You, to be a miracle to others, for Your Glory. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
