Morning Manna by Rufus Parker - 2018 February 20

“When thou goest out to battle against thine enemies, and seest horses, and chariots, and a people more than thou, be not afraid of them: for the LORD thy God is with thee, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt. And it shall be, when ye are come nigh unto the battle, that the priest shall approach and speak unto the people, And shall say unto them, Hear, O Israel, ye approach this day unto battle against your enemies: let not your hearts faint, fear not, and do not tremble, neither be ye terrified because of them; For the LORD your God is he that goeth with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you” (Deuteronomy 20:1-4).

Today’s Morsel:  Warfare can bring out certain qualities in a man.  Some of those qualities are bravery, compassion, fear, trustworthiness, gallantry, endurance, and commitment, just to name of few.  Moses told the children of Israel that when they go to battle against their enemies and they see that their enemies seem to be more powerful and stronger than they, they should not be afraid, become faint-hearted, tremble or be terrified because God was with them and God would fight for them.  What a promise.  And that promise is still for us today.  God is with us no matter how huge our enemies may look or seem.  Praise will always bring about your salvation and deliverance.  Remember, intimidation is just your enemy’s way of trying to inflict fear.

Sing:  Standing on the promise of Christ my King, through eternal ages, let His praises ring; Glory in the Highest I will shout and sing; Standing on the promises of God.
Standing, standing, standing on the promises of God my Savior.  Standing, standing, I’m standing on the promises of God.

Thought For Today:  Intimidation is just your enemy’s way of trying to inflict fear.
