“And he set captains of war over the people, and gathered them together to him in the street of the gate of the city, and spake comfortably to them, saying, 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: with him is an arm of flesh; but with us is the LORD our God to help us, and to fight our battles. And the people rested themselves upon the words of Hezekiah king of Judah.” 2 Chronicles 32:6-8 (KJV)
Hezekiah was a king who was pleasing to the LORD and walked in His ways. When the Assyrian army taunted, and spouted hateful rhetoric at them the king of Judah called all the captains over the people to gather at the gate of the city, and spoke to them with courageous and encouraging words, because of his trust in the LORD God of Israel.
For all of us there are fearful situations. That is where faith in Christ comes in. When we trust Him for our salvation what is there to fear. Are you aware that to perish in this life without God is the greatest tragedy that can happen to you?
The LORD God has made a way of salvation. That is through the death, burial and resurrection of His Son Jesus Christ. When you trust Him there is no enemy, or weapon that comes against us that we need fear. We can say with the apostle Paul…
“I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.” Galations 2:20
No matter what you are facing in this life today God will deliver you.
