2009 Scripture Memory (13 of 24): DEUTERONOMY 20:1-4
I’ve been struggling with a couple of strongholds lately, so I’ve chosen to memorize a verse that will give me strength when facing the Enemy. Once again I find the imagery of The Lord of the Rings to be the most effective tool for helping me envision my power in Christ and the Victory that has already been accomplished.
When you go to war against your enemy and see horses and chariots and soldiers far outnumbering you, do not recoil in fear of them; God, your God, who brought you up out of Egypt is with you. When the battle is about to begin, let the priest come forward and speak to the troops. He’ll say, “Attention, Israel. In a few minutes you’re going to do battle with your enemies. Don’t waver in resolve. Don’t fear. Don’t hesitate. Don’t panic. God, your God, is right there with you, fighting with you against your enemies, fighting to win.” — Deuteronomy 20:1-4 (The Message)
