Be Not Intimidated

18 “Do not let Hezekiah mislead you when he says, ‘The Lord will deliver us.’ Have the gods of any nations ever delivered their lands from the hand of the king of Assyria? 19 Where are the gods of Hamath and Arpad? Where are the gods of Sepharvaim? Have they rescued Samaria from my hand? 20 Who of all the gods of these countries have been able to save their lands from me? How then can the Lord deliver Jerusalem from my hand?” ~ Isaiah 36:18-20NIV

Sennacherib, king of Assyria, invaded Israel in the days of Hezekiah, king of Judah. Now, his Commander was at the wall speaking to Judah so that he might send Fear into their hearts. Isn’t that how the enemy works? He comes to you and starts speaking with the utmost confidence, “Did you see God save that one?” “Did you see God intervene on their behalf?” And if we’re not careful, Fear will walk right into our nation through a door that we opened for him.

See, the enemy will show you where other people failed. Where other people fell short. Where other people missed the mark. Then he’ll ask, why would you be any different? Why would God save you? There’s nothing special about you. But you have to remember that he’s the Father of Lies, so his minions that come to you to harass and intimidate you are well-versed in his lies as well. Don’t believe them.

When the lies of the enemy come your way, turn to God. Remind Him and yourself of those verses He promised you. Remind Him and yourself that you are His, and He alone can save and defend you. Stand strong and don’t give in to the intimidation of the enemy.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Be Not Intimidated.
