“Be strong and courageous, be not afraid nor dismayed for the king of Assyria, nor for all the multitude that is with him: for there be more with us than with him:” 2 Chronicles 32:7Text — 2 Chronicles 32:1-8
The world is full of battles and if you want to survive and win in the battles of life, you have to be courageous and have strong faith in God. In our Bible passage, the king of Assyria entered Judah and determined to fight the people. When Hezekiah heard of it, he had strong faith and belief that God was on his side. He encouraged the people by telling them that God was with them and He would fight for them. At the end of the battle, the king of Assyria went back home with shame as God sent just one angel to destroy his army.
Every child of God has the power to win in the battles of life. What you need are faith and courage to face the battle. Do not be afraid of the enemy as God will fight for you and you shall hold your peace. Also encourage other children who are facing similar challenges never to give up as their miracle is on the way. In addition, you must put on the whole armour of God which consists – salvation, righteousness, gospel of peace, truth, shield of faith and sword of the Spirit.
