As you read the story of the exodus (of the Israelites) from bondage and slavery in Egypt, to their eventual arrival in the Promised Land, we see a series of miracles, performed by the Lord on their behalf. Often, they would find themselves in situations where there was no possible solution but for God to intervene. We are living at a time in the world where many people find themselves in a similar situation. People find themselves facing challenges that need divine intervention.
They have tried everything they can try; they have used up all their resources, and they are up against a wall, needing God to make a way. Well, I am here to encourage you and to remind you that HE (the Lord) can do impossible things. It was the great preacher, Billy Graham who said: ‘When we come to the end of ourselves, we come to the beginning of God.’ If you find yourself at that place where only a miracle from God will be an answer, then these notes are something that will encourage you. Read on!

There is a great song that we regularly sing at our church. It is called: ‘God is fighting for us!’ The song reaches a crescendo and then this refrain is sung:

God is fighting for us
Pushing back the darkness
Lighting up the Kingdom
That cannot be shaken
In the Name of Jesus
Enemy's defeated
And we will shout it out
Shout it out!

I believe that God is fighting for us and He is fighting for you. In the story of the exodus, when the people of God were caught between a rock and hard place with nowhere to turn, HE stepped in and started fighting for them:

Exodus 14:25 He twisted their chariot wheels, making their chariots difficult to drive. “Let’s get out of here—away from these Israelites!” the Egyptians shouted. “The LORD is fighting for them against Egypt!”

Eventually, even their enemies had to realise that the Lord was fighting for His people and they realised that they stood no chance of success and they turned and fled. You do not need to be shaken and you do not need to be moved, because your God is with you. The Lord is on your side and He wants to bring you into a place of victory.
