Judges 13:1-25; Isaiah 33:1-24; 1 Corinthians 11:2-34

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. 2 Chron. 32:7-8

Confronted by seemingly impossible odds—the mighty conquering armies of Assyria—Hezekiah encouraged Israel to look at their situation from a spiritual perspective. The Assyrian soldiers might seem invincible but they were simply human beings. In contrast Israel had the Lord their God on their side. If today, as a believer, you are facing great opposition, take time to look at your circumstances in the light of eternity. You have the Lord, the God of the entire universe on your side, upholding and protecting you! —David Croudace

Yet shall the armies Thou leadest, faithful and true to the last,
Find in Thy mansions eternal rest, when their warfare is past.
–Fanny J. Crosby
