There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.
Joshua 1 v 5
The Lord showed Himself strong on behalf of Moses and Israel against their powerful foes- the Egyptians. Even to this day, He similarly is with us as He was with Moses and He will be with us all the days of our lives till our last breath. As He gave directions, instructions and commandments to and through Moses, He will give us directions, instructions and commandments. As He used Moses as His chosen instrument, He will use us to liberate people from the yoke of spiritual slavery, fear of death and every other form of bondage. As Moses did miracles with his staff, He will enable us to do miracles among our staff or co-workers, teams and personnel. He will manifest Himself in unique ways that will have the jaws of our opponents dropping in awe.
He will be with us in the desert times of our lives as a sheltering, leading cloud by day and a guiding, protecting fire by night. He will lead us as He led Moses to mountain experiences of His presence, power and glory on Mount Sinai. The mighty weapons of modern Pharaohs and their army cannot singe a hair of ours or harm us in any way. He will provide for us on our journey manna and meat every day of our lives. He will do many signs and wonders in the course of our lives.
His presence in us and with us will distinguish us from the rest of mankind. He will be with us and in us consistently and faithfully. He will not fail us or leave us. The result is that no man or agent of the enemy of our souls can stand before us to challenge us, to intimidate us, to assault us. As long as we cling to Him, He is our strong defence, a bulwark against every evil force and design. Our faith and our dependence is not on our own limited capabilities, our own talents, our own resources but on the Lord God. Therefore, we need not be either afraid or disappointed but steeling ourselves always to be full of faith, courage, confidence and hope, knowing that we are more than conquerors through Him who loves and defends us. We are greater than Alexander the great for death slew him in his prime while our commander- in- chief, Jesus the Christ though He was similarly slain in His prime, rose again from the stony grave and is still alive in our midst, standing for us, leading the armies of heaven, fighting for us and interceding.
