Okay, okay.. so He doesn't actually wear a cape and look like some man made cartoon action figure.. but, it does get the point across :-)
I was reading in Deuteronomy the other day and saw this scripture and I just got such a word picture and felt Him reminding me of a few other scriptures to really set the stage for him being my true hero... (and yours)
1. God WILL Fight FOR You!
Exodus 14:14 The LORD himself will fight for you. Just stay calm."
I have taken some great comfort in this scripture and have found MANY in the bible about God fighting for us!! Many times He's doing it on our behalf and we aren't even aware.... other times... we just need to ask.. He already said He will!!
2. He's Already There!
The LORD your God who goes before you will himself fight for you, just as he did for you in Egypt before your eyes, Deuteronomy 1;30 ESV
Have you ever found yourself in a mess?? I can't tell you how many times (just this week) I have! The good news is that He's already there. It doesn't catch Him by surprise and He's never preoccupied with some other tragedy that He can't fly across the skies for you and sometimes you'll find He was waiting there all along. He's done it before and He will do it again!
3. We MUST Admit We Need A Hero
Oh, it's easy to sound tough, but the reality is we all need a hero.. a true hero. I sometimes shine through on a good day for my kids and wife or even some friends, but that is only once in a while.. truth is.. I'm not that good..... I admit I need a hero!!!! I wrote a song this week that I hope can help you understand my heart.. I thought I'd share it in this blog today. Would love to hear your feedback.. and oh.. remember... #GodsGotThis
