Break Free!


Deuteronomy 20:4


The Lord your God goes with you. He will fight for you against your enemies, and He will save you.


God told the Israelites not to panic or be scared when going to war against their enemies because God Himself would go to the battle with them, so that they would win over the enemies. 


There are times when we also have to face a battle. This battle happens in our mind. We are about to do something big like taking an exam or doing a performance or giving a speech in front of so many people. We feel nervous and scared, and there is a battle in our mind. The bad, discouraging thought says that we will not be able to make it, but the Godly thought says that we will succeed with God’s help.


How do you break free from this battle in your mind? 


You only need a courageous faith. The faith that declares that God is with you right here and right now, then you will break free from this battle. God always fights for us. Just believe that! And if God is with you, you will be able to handle everything.


Prayer


Dear God, I am not afraid anymore to _______ (name something big that you need to do) because I know You are with me, and You will fight for me. Amen.
