“You shall not be afraid of them — but you shall remember well what the LORD your God did to Pharaoh and to all Egypt.” Deuteronomy 7:18
“Do not tremble or be terrified because of them; for the LORD your God is He who goes with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you.” Deuteronomy 20:3-4
“This far you may come — but no farther, and here your proud waves must stop!” Job 38:11
The assaults of original sin will ever return, and we must not be surprised when one conflict is over that another arises. This warfare is unavoidable, for the enemy is within us. It makes us more careful and humble to know this than we would be if we believed that we had to encounter sin only from without, and not from within.
A deep acquaintance with this subject will also teach us to put a just value on the privilege of drawing near to God through the Redeemer, and pleading those precious promises which encourage us to hope that He will both pardon and subdue our iniquities.
God is with us; this is our confidence. God is for us; this is our glory. Let us, therefore, engage with every foe, exercising faith in a present God.
If 0mnipotence be with us, if 0mnipotence be for us, whom or what should we fear? Let us not fear or be afraid — but let us trust in the Lord.
Devotion by Karl Heinrich von Bogatzky (1690—1774)
