WHERE IS YOUR CONFIDENCE?

“When you go out to battle against your enemies, and see horses and chariots and people more numerous than you, do not be afraid of them; for the Lord your God is with you, who brought you up from the land of Egypt.”Deuteronomy 20:1

It’s always a good idea to have a battle plan if you intend to lead an army into war. Moses possessed a plan for the army of Israel, a set of instructions that came straight from the top-the very top. Imagine the confidence a field commander could instill in his troops knowing that he could not lose. Yet that was just the kind of guarantee God gave Moses and the people of Israel. God assured them they had nothing to fear-as long as they remembered that He would remain with them always.

Christian leaders today can bank on the same promise that gave Moses such courage: “For the Lord your God is He who goes with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you” (Deuteronomy 20:4). And so God gives us the same word He gave to Moses: “Do not be afraid.”
