Bible Reading: Exodus 14:14
📖14….”The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.”
🔥This is an interesting Bible reading because the battles that Christians are engaged in, came from an aged long war that God fought with Satan in the heavenly, before the earth was recreated in Genesis 1:3-25. In that war, Lucifer was not just defeated, but he was cast down from heaven. That is why in Exodus 14:14, the Lord said I will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace. In 2 Chro 20:15, the Lord said the battle is not yours, but God’s. In 1 Sam 17:47, the word of God says for the battle is the LORD’S. All these are words of assurance for man to know that God is EL, the strong one, who will never run away from the battles that originated from His throne.
🔥🔥In Rev 12:7-9, the Bible says there was war in heaven. The end of this war brought Satan to the earth; with one third angels of God that were loyal to Satan…Rev 12:4. These angels which kept not their first estate, have been reserved in everlasting chains under darkness…Jude 6. They now live in darkness as demons, working for Satan, by creating battles for believers, and fighting battles against mankind for Satan. Since the battles are fallouts from the beef between God and Satan, God has also vowed to fight for those that believe in Him.
🔥🔥🔥The cause of this war is highlighted in Isaiah 14:12-15. It was a result of pride that made Satan to aspire to dethrone the Almighty God. But when Michael and his angels fought against the dragon (Rev 12:7), he and his angels were defeated and cast down to the earth and turned it formless, void and dark…Genesis 1:2. You see now that God didn’t create a dark, formless and void earth, but Satan’s presence made it so. Even in our lives, once Satan comes in, we become formless, void and full of darkness. But since God doesn’t abandon any battle that man faces; which is a continuation of the war, He has taken over our battles and he will fight for us.
🙏Heavenly father, as you defeated Satan in the war in heaven, end all my battles with the enemy, in my favour in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏O Lord, release your light into my life, to drive away the darkness of Satan from me in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏My father my father, cut down into the grave, everyone aspiring to dethrone me from my divine throne in Jesus’ name.
