God is On Your Side

The Lord will fight for you.”  – Exodus 14:14

I read these words and draw in a deep breath.
I need them right now.
Don’t we all? Oh, we may not go to war.
But we fight…
for relationships
for dreams

We battle…
against illness
against discouragement
I think of you staring at the screen, perhaps feeling your strength is small.
Oh, yes, I know what that’s like.
But victory isn’t up to us.
And those words you sometimes hear? “You’re not worth fighting for.”
They’re a lie. Nothing more.
This is the truth from the heart of One who calls you His own:
You are loved.
You are worth fighting for.
You are even worth dying for.
So go into your day, strong friend, knowing that nothing can defeat you. You’ve already won.
