Like there is a host of enemies out there, just waiting to attack as soon as you step out the door…
Before Israel went into battle, the priest would come out and address the troops. He would remind them of the one critical difference between them and every enemy they might face.
“Today you are on the verge of battle with your enemies. Do not let your heart faint, do not be afraid, and do not tremble or be terrified because of them; for the Lord your God is He who goes with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you.” Deuteronomy 20:3-4
If you are standing on the verge of a battle, remember you do not stand there alone.
