The Antidote to Intimidation

The Assyrians were taunting the people of Judah as written about in yesterday’s post. It was found out that Hezekiah and the prophet Isaiah had the antidote to this intimidation. They cried out in prayer to heaven to combat these taunts. Then the Lord sent an angel to annihilate all the fighting men, leaders, and officers in the camp of the Assyrian king. Then the king of the Assyrians withdrew to his own land in disgrace.

Prayer is a great weapon to combat our enemies. It is available to us as a great power that can rescue us in our time of need as our actions conquer fear and as we stand up for what is right and good. The Word also encourages and emboldens to help us never give up. We are confident because we know the angels are near and we listen to the quiet voice saying, “Today we will surely succeed but if for some reason another day is needed, we’ll be able to try again tomorrow”.

Here’s a song to build confidence for our day: The Rescue – Adam Cappa. God bless! 🙂
 

Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. – Deuteronomy 31:6
