In the storm, or battle as it were

March 26, 2009

Incredible verse I read today, 1 Chronicles 5:20

And when they [the Hagrites, Jetur, Naphish, and Nodab] prevailed over them [Israel], the Hagrites and all who were with them were given into their hands, for they cried out to God in the battle, and He granted their urgent plea because they trusted in Him.

The best part of this, of course, is God delivering His people. And when does He do it? Right in the middle of the battle! And why did God give them into the Israelites hands? Because they trusted in God.

As we look at the cross (as I should be doing more with this site) we find that God had given the church victory over sin and death and every spiritual enemy because of Jesus Christ and His work in life and death. And today we trust in Him to deliver us day-by-day as we cry out to Him and entrust ourselves to Him.
