God Will Fight Your Battles

Sometimes God will simply run a protective shield around you where nothing will be able to get through to attack you. Other times something will start to slip through to come directly against you, and then God will move ahead of you to take it out. This is where God will literally take your enemy head on and do battle with it.

Sometimes God will fight the actual battle through you, other times He will simply tell you to hold your position and do absolutely nothing, and then He will move Himself to completely take out the attack coming against you. This is where God shows you how powerful and how awesome He really is when He moves into battle to personally protect you.

Again, these next set of verses are extremely powerful as all of the other ones listed above. Notice the very intense language God is using when these verses describe Him moving into actual battle for you.

The first two verses are major, whopper, power verses. These first two verses are specifically telling us that God can be a Man of War if He needs to be, and that He can actually be stirred up to go into battle for you if He has to.

  1. The Lord is a man of war; the Lord is His name … Your Right Hand, O Lord, has become glorious in power; Your right hand, O Lord, has dashed the enemy in pieces. And in the greatness of Your excellence you have overthrown those who rose against You; You sent forth Your wrath which consumed them like stubble.” (Exodus 15:3,6)
  2. The Lord shall go forth like a mighty man; He shall stir up His zeal like a man of war. He shall cry out, yes, shout aloud; He shall prevail against His enemies.” (Isaiah 42:13)
  3. I will go before you and make the crooked paths straight; I will break in pieces the gates of bronze and cut the bars of iron.” (Isaiah 45:2)
  4. “For you shall not go out with haste, nor go by flight; for the Lord will go before you, and the God of Israel will be your rear guard.” (Isaiah 52:12)
  5. “Therefore understand today the Lord your God is He who goes before you as a consuming fire. He will destroy them and bring them down before you; so you shall drive them out and destroy them quickly, as the Lord has said to you.” (Deuteronomy 9:3)
  6. The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.” (Exodus 14:14)
  7. “Be strong and courageous; do not be afraid nor dismayed before the king of Assyria, nor before all the multitude that is with him; for there are more with us than with him. With him is an arm of flesh; but with us is the Lord our God, to help us and to fight our battles.” (2 Chronicles 32:7)
  8. “… For I will contend with him who contends with you.” (Isaiah 49:25)
  9. “… since it is a righteous thing with God to repay with tribulation those who trouble you …” (2 Thessalonians 1:6)
  10. “The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms; He will thrust out the enemy from before you, and will say, ‘Destroy!’ ” (Deuteronomy 33:27)

  15. “Plead my cause, O Lord, with those who strive with me; fight against those who fight against me. Take hold of shield and buckler, and stand up for my help. Also draw out the spear, and stop those who pursue me. Say to my soul, “I am your salvation.” (Psalm 35:1)
  16. “When my enemies turn back, they shall fall and perish at your presence. For You have maintained my right and my cause; You sat on the throne judging in righteousness.” (Psalm 9:3)
  17. Do not be afraid of their faces, for I am with you to deliver you,” says the Lord. (Jeremiah 1:8)
  18. “God is a just judge, and God is angry with the wicked every day. If He does not turn back, He will sharpen His sword; He bends His bow and makes it ready. He also prepares for Himself instruments of death; He makes His arrows into fiery shafts.” (Psalm 7:11)
  19. He will guard the feet of His saints, but the wicked shall be silent in darkness. For by strength no man shall prevail. The adversaries of the Lord shall be broken in pieces; from heaven He will thunder against them. The Lord will judge the ends of the earth. He will give strength to His king, and exalt the horn of His anointed. (1 Samuel 2:9)
  20. “… For we have no power against this great multitude that is coming against us; nor do we know what to do, but our eyes are upon You … Then the Spirit of the Lord came upon Jahaziel … thus says the Lord to you: ‘Do not be afraid nor dismayed because of this great multitude, for the battle is not yours, but God’s … You will not need to fight in this battle. Position yourselves, stand still and see the salvation of the Lord, who is with you, O Judah and Jerusalem!” Do not fear or be dismayed; tomorrow go out against them, for the Lord is with you.” (2 Chronicles 20:12-17)
  21. “Behold, all those who were incensed against you shall be ashamed and disgraced; they shall be as nothing, and those who strive with you shall perish. You shall seek them and not find them – those who contend with you. Those who war against you shall be as nothing, as a nonexistent thing. For I, the Lord your God, will hold your right hand, saying to you, ‘Fear not, I will help you.‘ ” (Isaiah 41:11)
  22. When the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him.” (Isaiah 59:19)
  23. Now I know that the Lord saves His anointed; He will answer him from His holy heaven with the saving strength of His right hand.” (Psalm 20:6)
  24. “Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me; You will stretch out Your hand against the wrath of my enemies, and You right hand will save me. The Lord will perfect that which concerns me …” (Psalm 138:7)

  27. “You marched through the land in indignation; You trampled the nations in anger. You went forth for the salvation of Your people, for salvation with Your anointed. You struck the head from the house of the wicked.” (Habakkuk 3:12)
  28. The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears, and delivers them out of all their troubles.” (Psalm 34:17)

Really meditate and chew on these verses so they can get down deep into your mind and spirit. Believe what they are telling you. Our God is a mighty, powerful and awesome God – especially when you see Him go into major battle to protect one of His own.

My brother, these are all powerful promises in the Old Testament. Now that we're living in the Power of the Holy Spirit, God has given every believer the authority of God in our mouth and the ability to fast and pray and destroy yokes. When we know that, we have a duty to learn it and stand against the enemy in our own life. Jesus said when He went away that we should (ought to) fast, and we are told in the Word of God that we have been given authority over all of the power of the enemy (Luke 10:19). So those who aren't strong in authority or haven't been taught, we know God fights for them and helps them in battles. But for those who know the authority God has given His people, and have learned how to use it, He expects us to walk in that. It's what we ALL are commanded to do and we should be learning it from God's Word. That certainly doesn't come quickly with a new believer but there is so much online to help us grow. God's people are going to need strong spiritual muscles in the end times and God has been speaking that for several years now. That if we don't get strong in the Word now, It's going to be too late later. My encouragement is to learn the authority of God He has given and start learning how to use it. We're going to need to be very discerning and powerful in the end times. The enemy will be unleashed in a far greater way. So it's time we learn the authority of God and how to use it well. God bless you all.

I just want to give God all the glory and praises ! I have been praying about my situation at work - dealing with coworkers that were constantly backstabbing and telling lies about me and making it hard for me to do my job. But thank you Jesus the main one is no longer with the company - and I met my new coworker a few days ago and she seems to be a true blessing sent from God . I know that God is in control and I gave it all to him. Prayers and faith work - just give it to him and believe. God is good and will never leave you.

I thank God. Mum died while I was at a tender age, I have never seen my father in my life. God has raised me through many people some of them very hush, despite this God has made me very successful. I was taken into the court by those who wanted to trample on my head, they were ashamed God dismissed the case. God is the Father of the fatherless, the defender of the defenseless and the voice of the voiceless. Never give up in talking to God. God is Love. I will always live to Thank God and Glorify the Governor of the entire universe, the Omnipotent God for all the Power and the Glory is His in the entire Universe throughout all eternity.

Me and my family have been going through a fierce long term legal battle and we have been warring and standing and trusting God for two months. We know God is very faithful but sometimes the battle is long and hard. But He does give us support and strength when we need it. I thank God for your testimony. It's a great encouragment today.

Blessed day to you All,

I am currently in an abusive work place. I have been hurting since last year. my boss doesn't like me, she hate me with all her heart. she is trying everything to get me fired but I am standing and not letting her get me fired. she is accusing me of not doing my job and every time she accused me of something I bring evidence. The environment is Hell guys and it is really draining me. my supervisor is on her side because she was given the job by her just like that. now she must please her in everything even if it means she must sell the truth.

I have prayed about it but now I feel like I need God to take the fight and bring His Judgement. It is a torturing environment for anybody to work under. Colleagues are even laughing and talking bad about my prayer life. They think that my God has failed me and I am not even going to let them look down at my God.

Please pray for me, I want God to turn the tables and expose them.

I had the same experience so I trusted in god and just quit nothing is more important than your health physically emotionally nor mentally. You can always get another job trust me I did and i took a pay cut but my health has improved greatly over the last 2 months you can’t change people but you can change your circumstances. I left started a small car business with my auction license have a full time job and set up one of my car to rent to Uber. Had I not listen to god and trusted his guidance look what I would have been missing leave toxic people in god hands had you taken the promotion you would have given up all your dignity god takes you through a season for a reason

You keep your faith strong in the Lord. It says people will hate you because of the name Jesus, but this is a sign that he is real. Your Victory is coming in the name of Jesus. Don't forget to pray for your enemies as well! They may come to be saved because of your actions.

Pride, I pray that this situation has been overcome for you. It sounds just like you're dealing with the Jezebel spirit. People who operate by that spirit never give up when they attack a person unless God directly intervenes. The spirit drives them to hate and slander and malign and destroy and they seem to have boundless energy to do it because they are slaves of that spirit.

Lord, I pray that You give the wisdom needed in these circumstances and to turn the tables and prepare a table for Your child in the presence of his enemies. Moreover, promote him to a better job, a better place, or a better position. Amen.

Start praying in tongues. You can do it in your mind. The devil is beyond genius. The kingdom of darkness in incredibly organized. Tongues allow spiritual defense that the devil can't plan for. Can't be ahead of.
