Jehovah God was “among” the Israelites of old. He is the “landlord” of all the Earth, and He decided to take the land of Canaan from the idolatrous and wicked Canaanites and give it to His people for an everlasting possession. Moses told Israel they need not fear what man could do to them since the mighty God of Jacob was in their midst.
O Savior of we sinners, if You be for us, who can stand against us? If we take up Your sword, Your Word, and use it aright, and the Spirit wields it inwardly even as we wield it outwardly, Satan cannot defeat its power. Teach us to trust your Word, Your truths, and Your Spirit. Show us Your POWER to save. Let us not be afraid when we know you are walking among us, Amen.
