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)
  11. Do not say, “I will recompense evil;” Wait for the Lord, and He will save you.” (Proverbs 20:22)
  12. “I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you …” (Genesis 12:3)
  13. “Many a time they have afflicted me from my youth; yet they have not prevailed against me … The Lord is righteous; He has cut in pieces the cords of the wicked.” (Psalm 129:2)
  14. It is God who avenges me, and subdues the peoples under me; He delivers me from my enemies. You also lift me up above those who rise against me; You have delivered me from the violent man.” (Psalm 18:47)
  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)
  25. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, nor shall the flame scorch you.” (Isaiah 43:2)
  26. “For they did not gain possession of the land by their own sword, nor did their arm save them; but it was Your right hand, Your arm, and the light of Your countenance, because You favored them.” (Psalm 44:3)
  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)
  29. “And I commanded Joshua at that time, saying, ‘Your eyes have seen all that the Lord Your God has done to these two kings; so will the Lord do to all the kingdoms through which you pass. You must not fear them, for the Lord your God Himself fights for you.’ ” (Deuteronomy 3:21)

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.

    I find myself in the valley of decision, God brought me to CA and I was intricate in establishing new business only to lose it all at no fault of my own. I hear the Lord say Be still you will not need to fight this battle. I know we, the body of Christ are on the cusp of the greatest move of God that there ever has been where millions will literally be swept into His kingdom. I also know that everything I have been through has been to get me to this place where He can use me as He said He would all those many years ago. This still does not make this place I find myself right now any easier but take comfort in the fact that the Lord knows where I am at and has not left me here alone. Lord thank You for helping me as I declare ALL IS WELL!

    All I need from God are just 3 things:
    i. Favour
    ii. Grace and
    iii. Mercy
    To stand out among numerous set of people that applied for this job at the federal road safety Corp & at the federal civil service commission here in Nigeria. I already put all my hope and trust in God and I believe I will be called for the two I applied for before this year 2018 runs to an end. So help me God…Amen.

  3. Teresa - August 25, 2018 at 3:02 am

    I am a believer of God as He has come through for me over and over.

    I was worrying over a situation at my workplace (maybe unnecessarily), where I feel a witch hunt seems to be going on for a scapegoat. I prayed and decided to browse for scripture that would help to reassure me that God is with me and will always fight any battle for me, when I found this site. Lo and behold the first article I found here was one where a woman prayed for a work situation for her husband and God acted swiftly and turned it right around in their favour. Praise God in Jesus’ Name!

    That was the reassurance and answer that God led me to read.

    Thank you for your publications and may God continue to Bless you and everyone, especially those who seek Him out.

      I have the same type of issue that you talked about. My wife went into heavy pray for me. For Our God is good and he has this. I know he is fighting my battle that I can not fight by myself.

  4. Richard Brinkley - December 4, 2017 at 12:28 pm

    For the last 3 years I have begged God to help me and lead me and save me yet problems after problems pile on me as if I were cursed. I have always been Gods child even though I have messed up a lot. I nearly died when I was 4 then again 2 other times. If my life was going to turn out like this why did he keep me alive? I have lost my wife and son to illness and the rest of my family to illness and other things. I have no family or friends other than my cat that survived two other cats that died young breaking my heart over and over again. I am a disabled veteran with more medical problems than I can list here. No one I have ever heard of has had the countless heartbreaks I have had and still endure. I just don’t think I can take any more pain. I know others have pain in various ways. I don’t proclaim to be the only put upon person in history and don’t come close to what Jesus went through but I don’t have the power he had and I don’t proclaim to be anything special. I am a nobody and God treats me like that. I have begged him on my knees crying like a hungry baby and still I continue to experience hurt after hurt and the biggest hurt is feeling the broken heart caused by God turning his back on me, feeling like he hates me to a depth I can’t describe. Yes, I have done things that I cannot stop kicking and berating myself for. I hate my body and myself so badly and I ask God to save me from living so unhappily. I can’t take anything else. I know that Jesus going to his painful death for people he didn’t even know is the strongest kind of love. I have met people at the VA medical centers that gave their body and mind well being for this country. I know of people who gave their lives for the people of this country. I don’t try to make them on a level with Jesus cause it can’t be done. And yes, I served but I don’t put myself on a level with them. I can’t no matter what sacrifices I have made. Unless you have been there, understanding the pure nightmare experienced is impossible. I could try but it would take more space than I have here.

    • Kem - December 13, 2017 at 9:13 pm

      Please keep trying. Yes, life is difficult. God did not turn his back on you. Don’t measure your life how God sees you. Yes, it definitely feel like he has abandon you but the Bible says he has not nor will he EVER forsake us. I dont know what he is doing with you but please, dont think you are alone. Im your sister in christ and am praying for you.

    • Boe - May 10, 2018 at 3:25 am

      Hi Richard, I would like to know if you have tried the prayer process on these pages of bible-knowledge, and whether it helped you or not. Thank you. 🙂

    • Michelle - August 16, 2018 at 7:20 am

      I often think of the battles that I have had in my own life and think why God? He spoke to me one day and said He is raising up an army to fight the enemy and He wants only the best of the best soldiers on the line. He is training us up to be those soldiers. Count every loss, hurt, pain, let dow, etc as a victory because you will be a mighty soldier in God’s army. That may not help you but it sure did me. Please don’t let life or other people “Let you down” Because they are no the ones that hold you up. Praying for you!

    • Glenn - October 3, 2018 at 11:08 am

      You do have a family. It is your Christian family. You are my brother in christ and always will be my brother. You will never be alone for our family is hugh. Our father is always with us. Love you brother thank you for your service.

    • Jay - November 27, 2018 at 4:31 pm

      What about what Jesus went through to save us from hell? The Bible tells us in this world we will have tribulation but to take heart, he has overcome the world… what about people who have never been able to experience what you have in this life? The Bible, God’s word also tells us in Matthew 10:37, “Anyone who loves their father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; anyone who loves their son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me”. The LORD doesn’t care about our comfort, he cares about our character and if you’ve lost that much and you still think it’s God basically being mean to you, you’ve failed the test sir…this life is nothing compared to eternity with THE ALMIGHTY! We can’t even fathom ALL THE LORD IS! We should glorify Him with our lives not the other way around. He must be #1 in every aspect.

  5. Debra - September 30, 2017 at 7:44 am

    In Psalm 56 David was surrounded by his enemies, but he cried out to the Lord for his deliverance. He knew in his heart that God is faithful and that God loved him. David’s trust was not in his battle or his enemies, he trusted in God’s victorious hand to save him. Ever battle is a victory for God. I have been put in the role of a scapegoat and have to cry out to God for his vindication and deliverance. The enemy can use people to be against us but if God is for us who can be against us, meaning if they are fighting us they are fighting with God. They will not win, we are more than conquerors in Christ who strengthens us.

    • Kem - December 13, 2017 at 9:15 pm

      Amen! Thank you for that. We all need reminders of God being for us and not against us. Praise the Lord!

  6. Tony - September 17, 2017 at 3:00 am

    I was finding for scriptures that can help me call upon God to fight against those leaders who are against me in the church who do not want to understand that God is the one who called me in his work and not any body and I came across this verses that has helped and encouraged me indeed in prayer in Christ Jesus son of the living God. May God deal with them according to his will scripturally. Tony of Kaptama.

  7. Massy - April 14, 2017 at 8:32 am

    For the first time in my life, I decide to visit Google and enquire about scriptures that will help me fight my spiritual battles and because He is a faithful God I ended up on this page.

    After reading all your testimonies I couldn’t stop crying because I immediately knew that HE is with me… and my prayers have been answered today.

    Thank you Jesus and thank you all

  8. Mavis - March 1, 2017 at 11:59 pm

    Oh Please is this a trend of hatred and injustice at the work place. I am having a hard time too. may the God who lives protect us as we continue praying.

  9. JO - August 24, 2016 at 12:53 am

    Really needed to hear them, before going out into a room raging with war and hatred and all alone… Thank you for compiling them, was so comforting !

    • Pat - December 28, 2016 at 4:57 am

      I have experienced God’s standing before me having to fight for me during some of my spirtual warfare where I was just starting out. God saw I was being overwhelmed so he sent his Holy Spirit to tell me to call him to stand before and fight my battles for me. God had me to bring it back to my memory from my former church/Bible scripture teachings and readings and many different pastor’s sermons/preachings. It really does pay to always keep God in your heart, soul, spirit, mind, and body because he won’t forget his sheep and leave them behind. The experience was mind boggling. It was brought on from God wanting me to be his witness concerning the enemy. It brought danger. But the Lord sent one of his Angels to explain it to me and calm me down. Afterwards, the Satan/Spiritual Warfare was on the attack to kill and destroy my family and me. God’s power is an awesome thing. I will be using it in war from now on to save me and my family in our futures. Thank you so much. Bless you all.

  10. Brandi - July 22, 2016 at 9:57 am

    Thank you for your obedience to God!!! Today I needed every word on this page!!! Today God fights for my family!!! Today!! Thanks again.

    To God be ALL the GLORY!!! He is alive!!!

  11. Janie - April 21, 2016 at 11:33 am

    God’s Word is always encouraging! And I appreciate the time spent to put these scriptures together to remind us/Gods people about who we’re serving!

    He is the King of Glory! He is the Lord Strong and Mighty! He is the Lord Mighty in Battle!

    I’ve been reminded about the God I serve, so I will encourage my daughter to be strong in dealing with the profanity and unfairness on her job.
    When we’re walking in strength we can strengthen others. Thank you for putting God’s Word out for everybody to feed on. God’s Speed!

    • Marjorie mbulo - October 4, 2016 at 7:00 pm

      That is so true I too experience so.much injustice and hatred at work I know it is because I am of God and the the people who have assumed power by force and division at work are giving me such a hard time

      • Cathy - February 25, 2017 at 10:59 am

        Thanks for your words. I thought I was the only one having a hard time at work, regarding much hatred and injustice. I will continue to pray in Jesus’ name Amen.

        • Adjapomaa - March 17, 2017 at 2:46 am

          Thanks be to God for his faithfulness and love .I have also experienced a lot of hatred at work but i trust that when the favor of God is on you , no one can take it away from you. and the more the enemy tries to pull you down God makes you stronger. In my experience the more people hate me at work, the more God opens doors for me. Let us trust and obey for there is no other way to me happy in Jesus. He is my rock and my salvation. All things shall pass but he will be forever GOD.
          Even though I am still going through hard times as i speak, i have surety that at the right time he will redeem me. My redeemer liveth, and he is the Lord of all things. I am happy though things do not look too good because i know in his time, he will make all things beautiful. Let us thank the Lord for he is good and his faithfulness lasts forever.

  12. Dorothy - January 21, 2016 at 11:12 am

    Thank you for these scriptures I am going to make a hard copy to have around the house. For I have met a man who says he has peace : every time things do not feel right with him he begins to express things that are not of truth. Yes truth in his mind but not factual. I’ve even said things that look like are not always what they are. I’ve expressed that I have a joy, Peace that no man can have nor take. I’ve let him know that GOD has given it to me and he can have the same if he wants it and how bad. Today T.D. Jake spoke on Peace How people can say they have peace and have caous that make them leave for that is not of GOD nor what GOD has for myself nor them. there is so much more that GOD has to give and so little that he is asking of us to give in return we find to be so difficult. what is going on and has been going on is so much I just wanted to share outside of my familiar circle.

  13. Beloved says - October 2, 2015 at 12:00 am

    I thank God for the blessed servants of His who operates and maintains this website.
    As the Word of God says, a servant is worthy of double for his work, so I pray that your double blessings comes today, in Jesus name. Amen.
    I have needed these encouraging scriptures for so long, because I have been attacked so long by some family members and didn’t know what to do. Especially during my time of sickness, which has been great over the last 5 years, from 4 hospitalizations and 2 major surgeries. My heart has been so heavy, but this morning all of the heaviness and fears are gone. Hallelujah! Thank you Jesus!
    I can rest today and tears to come on knowing that God has control of my life and all of my concerns. And I am exceedingly grateful, in Jesus natched name. Amen.
    God bless all of us!

  14. Lynn - June 13, 2014 at 3:11 pm

    Exactly what I needed! I have been praying for God’s supernatural devine intervention in a matter I have been praying about for almost two months now. Today, I heard the Spirit of the Lord say “I will fight your battles for you”. I entered that into Google and found this, perfect. I have been getting weary in the praying and waiting. After reading this, the Spirit is saying “be still and know that I am God!” Yes, thank you Jesus! I will continue to meditate on your article. Thank you and bless you!
