Defense Team – Friday, August 19, 2022

For the LORD your God is he that goeth with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you – Deuteronomy 20:4


If given these references and their actions: Rahab who concealed the two men sent by Joshua to inspect Jericho and the Shunammite woman who offered both food and a place for Elisha to stay when needed, how would you perceive their importance? Likewise, the individual who furnished aid to the injured man in Jesus’ parable?  Or, personal experiences of those occasions when in need of assistance and provided help by seemingly unexpected arrivals?  Would you answer: a Godsent, people chosen to give in human form what had already been ordained by God?

It should be noted, that these divine assignments aren’t limited to congenial relationships, as it is also applicable to those who have been confrontational or believed to be an adversary because: “When a man’s ways please the Lord, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him” (Proverbs 16:7).   And it doesn’t matter the titles, the pedigree or the wealth of these people, God promises: “I make thine enemies thy footstool” (Psalm 110:1).  He kept His promise to those in the Bible, and He will keep His promise to us.

While many law firms have the names of members and partners on their websites, we don’t need to know the identity of God’s defense team.  We need only be assured that whoever He chooses will carry out whatever He’s ordained and that it will be for the best interest of His client.
