Then they turned and went up along the road toward Bashan, and Og king of Bashan and his whole army marched out to meet them in battle at Edrei. The Lord said to Moses, “Do not be afraid of him, for I have delivered him into your hands, along with his whole army and his land. Do to him what you did to Sihon king of the Amorites, who reigned in Heshbon.” So they struck him down, together with his sons and his whole army, leaving them no survivors. And they took possession of his land. Numbers 21:33‭-‬35 NIV

It is not unlikely for opposition to arise against you as you are faithfully pursuing the purpose of God or living to please God. However, you need not fear the enemy and his troops for the LORD God is with you both to defend you and give you victory over the adversary and his hosts.

Don’t quit yet no matter how strong and formidable the opponent may appear and no matter how fierce the battle becomes. Instead, God expects you to stand your ground in Christ against the enemy.

With Jesus Christ living in you, you can stand, with Jesus going ahead of you, you will surely overcome. It doesn’t matter who and what may come your way, the Lord will surely save your life and give you total victory at last.

So, as you continue the journey into the rest of this month and the rest of the year in the power, presence, and authority of Jesus Christ, you are unstoppable and irresistible to any force that will want to rise against you. As long as you are in Christ and His Word is in you, you will be strengthened in your inner man to overpower every foe standing in your way. May the Lord give you the courage to remain always in Christ to confront and defeat every earthly and satanic force standing in the way of your breakthrough in Jesus’ name. Good morning and do have a fruitful day.

Your brother,
