God Will Help You When Things Against You Seem Impossible To Overcome

God will help you when things against seem impossible to overcome.

Two historic enemies of Judah, Moab and Ammon, had come together with others to attack Judah and King Jehoshaphat. This combined army was much too great for Judah. However, Jehoshaphat trusted God to be his defender. And God did cause Jehoshaphat and Judah to triumph.

Isaiah wrote something similar. Dear child of God, take comfort in knowing that God is your Defender. Joshua told his troops that God was so powerful, that He was going to help Israel defeat their enemies. One person can defeat an army of one thousand. You are more than a conqueror. Ask the Lord to give you the strength to take a step of faith. He fights your battles!

King David declared that God would give him the strength to leap over a wall. This is one of my favorite verses. Receive the Lord’s strength and start leaping! Jesus rose from the dead and gave you His resurrection power.

“For we have no power against this great multitude that is coming against us; nor do we know what to do, but our eyes are upon You.” (2Chr 20:12)
