Monday December 28, 2015 “God Defends Us”

Zechariah 9:15 “The LORD of hosts will defend them; They shall devour and subdue with slingstones. They shall drink and roar as if with wine; They shall be filled with blood like basins, Like the corners of the altar.”
The Lord of hosts (heavenly the angels and earth the children of God) will defend them. What a comfort to know that God is our defense.
It is human nature to want to defend ourself from the voices of hell and unregenerate men but it seems that the more we do, the worse it gets. So it’s better to stand still and let God fight the battles for us like at Jericho when Joshua and Israel entered the land of Promise.
Let us agree in prayer today that believers in America will know when to resist the voices that rise against them and when to be still and know that He is God and pray. Job discovered that all things were restored to him because he was still before God and prayed for his friends. The Bible tells us that when Satan disputed with Michael, the archangel over the possession of Moses’s body, Michael only said, “The Lord Rebuke You”. The Archangel stands for all of Israel. He is a powerful angel but he simply used the Name of the Lord in battle. We should use the Name of Jesus to battle with the enemy of good and righteousness.
