Knowing that God is our Deliverer and our Rock, that He is fighting for us, and that He is with us should sustain our hope and trust during the fruitless seasons.
If you’ve ever had to endure a challenging season of any kind, then you know the value of having a friend who stays with you through the ups and downs, praying with you, working beside you, making you laugh, and keeping you encouraged. The Bible says that God is the ultimate partner in times like this.
He is a very present help (Ps. 46:1). We know that when God is with us, we have nothing to fear (Ps. 23:4). When God is for us, what can man do to us (Ps. 118:6)? Greater is He who is in us than he who is in the world (1 John 4:4).
We must get a picture of this: God our Defender, God our Deliverer, the One who fights our battles and wins. This is a revelation that we can have as Hannahs in this season. We can know God as our Deliverer and Defender while the battle is raging to give us the strength we need to hold on until we see the fulfillment of God’s promises.
