While reading Exodus chapter fourteen, I came across an interesting fact.
God is our Battle Fighter. Yes, you heard that correctly. Check out Exodus 14:14. "The LORD will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace."
On Wednesday nights this year I've helped teach Kids Bible Club at our church. Granted, I haven't been there in recent weeks because I am recovering from complications from surgery (see the last two posts below), but my Mom and I have co-taught this K-6th grade group of children about the "Names of God" - names that the Bible uses to describe God. One of the titles is Jehovah Nissi which means God is our Battle Fighter.
And low and behold what does God bring to my attention the other day? God is my Battle Fighter. The same God that helped the Israelites escape the evil clutches of the Egyptians is the same God that wants to fight for us.
What battle are you facing today? My battle is unseen in my body - at least to me. Blood clots fill my lungs making it difficult to breathe. They are an enemy. At times anxiety and fear are a weapon from the Enemy of our souls against my mind.
But God is my Battle Fighter and what I read in Psalm 108:13 while in the hospital last week bears repeating. "Through God, we will do valiantly, for it is He who shall tread down our enemies."
Will God always rescue us out of the battle? No, but He promises to help us through the battle. That is a lesson I am learning over and over again.
God is my Battle Fighter. Is He yours? He can be if you call on Him today. He will see you through!
Live the adventure,

I’ve experienced God’s grace and help in times of need. He wants to do the same for you. Jesus makes life worth living. So come on - Let’s live the adventure!
