The Lord is saying to you this morning …

“Don’t be afraid! Don’t be paralyzed by the enemy you are facing. For the battle is not yours … it’s Gods.” 2 Chronicles 20:15

Then in verse 17 He continues … “But you will not need to fight! Stand still and strong … take your places; stand quietly and see the incredible rescue operation that God will perform for you … Don’t be afraid or discouraged. Go out there this morning, for the Lord is with you.”

What enemy are you facing this morning? What enemy stands undefeated in your path? Is it an enemy called cancer? Is it an enemy called divorce? Or an enemy called loneliness, or sorrow, or hopelessness? Maybe the enemy called financial difficulty?


Take time and listen to what God is telling each of us who believe in Him … “BE STILL … AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD!”

There is no enemy that is too big for our God to handle. There are no circumstances that He can’t change in a wink of His eye. The enemy you are facing this morning shudders in fear at the very mention of our God’s name.

Let me share God’s promise from Joshua 1:9 … “Be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid, do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go!”

I pray you will find strength and courage from this beautiful song … “God on the Mountain” by Jason Crabb

Grace is a multi-generational church which believes that the Bible reveals the Story of a LOVING God who cares about every detail of OUR lives, and Jesus- the One who is our only hope for this life and the next.
