Hold Your Peace And Let God Fight For You
The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace. Exodus 14:14
For the LORD your God is the one who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you victory.” Deuteronomy 20:4
The Lord our God is the one that fights our battles. Some people have not realized this secret so they go around fighting, quarreling and revenging. They try so hard on their own and in their own power to defeat stubborn enemies. However, the power of man is useless when it comes to stubborn persistent enemies.
Some enemies are even clothed with the power of Satan and witchcraft to fight innocent believers. So why do people fret and get disturbed? They get disturbed and are applying all sorts of physical weapons to fight their enemies and perceived enemies. The Israelites had both physical and spiritual enemies.
Pharaoh had gods who were behind his hatred and abuse towards the Israelites. God had to intervene before, the Israelites could be set free. It is not by power or might but by the Spirit of God. God had to use His own higher power to defeat the gods and powers behind pharaoh.
On that same night I will pass through Egypt and strike down every firstborn of both people and animals, and I will bring judgment on all the gods of Egypt. I am the LORD. Exodus 12:12
When God steps in and judges the powers and gods behind your stubborn enemies, you will experience victory. It is the Lord our God that goes with us to fight for us and give us victory. Our own power is useless and can only be a hinderance to the power of God.
As we hold our peace and go into prayer, praise, worship and thanksgiving with faith, persistence and obedience, God will step in and overtake and overpower our enemies in the secret place of mercy and grace.
