The Lord’s battle numbers
The Lord’s Strength and Power in BattleHow could one man chase a thousand, or two put ten thousand to flight, unless their Rock had sold them, unless the LORD had given them up? Deuteronomy 32: 30
‘But you will chase your enemies and they will fall before you by the sword; five of you will chase a hundred, and a hundred of you will chase ten thousand, and your enemies will fall before you by the sword. ‘So I will turn toward you and make you fruitful and multiply you, and I will confirm My covenant with you.’ Leviticus 26:7-9
Would you rather fight on your own or have the Lord fight for you? When the Lord fights, HIS power is exponential. One is like 1,000 and two is like 10,000.
When the Lord is doing the fighting your enemies will flee and fall. When you are doing the fighting you are operating in your own strength and power, not the supernatural strength of the resurrected Jesus Christ.
The Israelites experienced victory in the Promised Land because the Lord was fighting for them. The walls of Jericho fell because they followed the Lord. Gideon experienced victory with fewer in his army because HE trusted the Lord. David defeated Goliath because HIS faith was in the Lord.
Which would you rather be fighting with – 1, 2 or 1,000 or 10,000?
Take the full Armor of God into battle. The Word of God is your sword found in Ephesians 6:10-17.
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
When you fight your own battles you are alone. However, when the Lord fights HE is like 1,000 fighting compared to one, or like 10,000 compared to two.
