With him is only the arm of flesh, but with us is the LORD our God to help us and to fight our battles.’ And the people gained confidence from what Hezekiah the king of Judah said” (2 Chronicles 32:7-8 NIV). ****************** QUOTE FOR THE DAY Do not be discouraged!

DO NOT BE DISCOURAGED

Dearly Beloved, DO NOT BE DISCOURAGED  “‘Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or discouraged because of the king of Assyria and the vast army with him, for there is a greater power with us than with him. With him is only the arm of flesh, but with us is the LORD our God to help us and to fight our battles.’  And the people gained confidence from what Hezekiah the king of Judah said” (2 Chronicles 32:7-8 NIV). Sennacherib king of Assyria who was the then world power came to invade the land of Judah. He threatened the people to surrender to him instead of yielding to the words of encouragement from Hezekiah the king of Judah. The people had every cause to panic because of the military successes of that Assyrian king and his predecessors. However, they gained confidence from what Hezekiah said because they believed as Hezekiah said that Sennacherib depended on human resources while they had the divine backing.  The LORD indeed helped the people, and the human resources of Sennacherib failed him woefully. People tend to rely on human and material resources today, and they may be using them to oppress other people. However, the oppressed should not be discouraged. If they can put their trust in God as the people of Judah did, God would help them in His own way and His own time. No matter the strength of the oppressor, the Lord has promised, “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand” (Isaiah 41:10 NIV), “…because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world” (1 John 4:4 NIV). Who or what is the “Sennacherib” that has “invaded” your life and that is making you to be afraid or discouraged? Is the thing or person threatening you and you are about to lose hope? Do not be discouraged! Like Hezekiah, I am imploring you to trust in God. He is with you. He will fight your battles, and you will soon testify to His goodness over your life. In His service, Bayo Afolaranmi (Pastor). Prayer Point: Pray that you will not be discouraged in spite of any opposition you may have.

They give up at the last minute of the game, one foot from a winning touch down. - Ross Perot ******************** PRAYER/ACTION FOR THE DAY Pray that you will not give up until you succeed in life.

It is always to bring us to a new level of trust and dependence on Him. - Os Hillman ******************** PRAYER/ACTION FOR THE DAY Pray that the Lord will glorify Himself in any failure you may have.
