“Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom He has redeemed from the hand of the enemy,” Psalm 107:2. According to the word of the Lord we’ve been redeemed from the hand of the enemy. Do we believe it? Or do we still under estimate the power of the Lord within us? At first many will respond with a reassuring response, “No!”. But when difficulties designed by the enemy come our way to steal, to kill, and to destroy us, many of God’s people cave into the attack of the enemy, and often without any form of resistance. This response to satan’s tactics is not right. We are to believe what God says about His redemptive hand upon us. And what does He say about our redemption from our enemy?
“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, who brought you up from the land of Egypt, is with you,” Deuteronomy 20:1-4. Do not to be afraid of the size of the attack or being outnumbered, in this case the number of people rising against you. And I want to encourage you that sometimes the enemy is not people rising against you at all, but it could be a disease, the cell count of HIV or other disease in your body. No matter the number rising against your health and life, don’t be afraid, because God is with you.
“Listen, all Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem and King Jehoshaphat: thus says the LORD to you, ‘Do not fear or be dismayed because of this great multitude, for the battle is not yours but God’s,” 2 Chronicles 2:15. Again, don’t be afraid of the size of the multitude rising against you, no matter if the multitude is people or sickness or some other form of attack, remember the battle belongs to the Lord. And according to the Scriptures Jesus won the battle for us at Calvary. “But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ,” 1 Corinthians 15:57.
“For by their own sword they did not possess the land, And their own arm did not save them, But Your right hand and Your arm and the light of Your presence, For You favored them,” Psalm 44:3-7. These battles are not won in our own strength, but in His, and in His manifested presence. “This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the LORD Almighty,” Zachariah 4:6.
Clearly throughout Scripture our God paid the price through His Son, our Redeemer Jesus Christ paid the price for our victory, and now it is up to us to trust in His righteous right hand upon us to uphold and deliver us through these vicious attacks of the enemy in whatever form they attack us.
“Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but only one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may win,” 1 Corinthians 9:24. If you will run your race according to God’s Word you will live in the victory He provided for us.
But as with any and all promises of God it is a choice to live victoriously. “I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus,” Philippians 3:4.
And the only way to victory against our enemy, satan is by our faith in our Lord, Jesus Christ. “For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world–our faith,” 1 John 5:4.
And He has given everything we need to overcome the wicked attacks of the enemy, His authority (See Luke 10:19), His supernatural power, unconditional love, and the mind of Christ (See 2 Timothy 1:7), His resurrection power (see Romans 8:11), the power of faith (see Hebrews 11:1), the supernatural strength in joy (see Nehemiah 8:10b), and life and healing in His Word (Proverbs 4:20-22), and so much more.
Be confident and speak the truth that you are victorious in Christ, and no matter what comes your way you’ll fight the good fight of faith and complete the race as one who knows they are redeemed by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, see Revelation 12:11.
