The Forever Fighter

Where is God in your Egypt? That land of hardship. Slavery. Abuse. That place of heartache and brokenness.

Where is God in your Wilderness?  That land of wandering.  Wondering where you should be.  Hoping for a place of plenty.

Where is God in your Promised Land? That land where you fight for every inch of ground.  Land dripping with milk and honey.  Your forever home.

God is there.  Everywhere.  In Egypt.  In the Wilderness. In the Promised Land. And what does He do in each of those places?  He fights.

The Lord your God, who is going before you, will fight for you, as he did for you in Egypt, before your very
eyes,  and in the wilderness. There you saw how the Lord your God carried you, as a father carries his son, 
all the way you went until you reached this place.” Deut. 1:30-31

He fights for YOU.  It doesn't matter what season you are in.  A season of sin?  He fights for your salvation from yourself.  A season of confusion...not knowing where you will go next?  He fights to blaze a trail before you. A season of hope and prosperity?  He fights to keep you close to Him.  Wherever you are, He is fighting. While the places may look drastically different He doesn't not alter His actions.  He fights.

What a comfort to know that the Forever Fighter goes before you and has your back!
