Isaiah 41:10 - "Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand."
It is easy to say "Praise the Lord! Hallelujah!" when times are good. It is easy to believe the God loves you when you are on the mountaintop enjoying the sunshine. But what happens when you are down in the dark valley surrounded by your enemies?
When King Jehosaphat was surrounded by his enemies, He acted with wisdom from on high. Instead of putting his commandos in front, he put worshipers in front! They sang of God's love for them -- "Praise the Lord for His love endures forever!" And God utterly destroyed their enemies! (2 Chronicles 20:21-23)
So whatever trials you are in today, don't be afraid. God is there with you strengthening and upholding you. Just sing of His love for you and let Him fight your battles for you!
