We Fight Because the Lord is With Us! – Zechariah 10:5

“They shall be like mighty men in battle, trampling the foe in the mud of the streets; they shall fight because the Lord is with them, and they shall put to shame the riders on horses.” Zechariah prophesied about the restoration of God’s chosen people saying that they would be would be transformed from wandering sheep into a majestic warhorse (vs. 3). Zechariah declared that God’s chosen people would be triumphant against all foes not because they are bigger or stronger but because of the Lord’s presence with them. Not only would God’s people be victorious, they would triumph even against the strongest of enemies. As we struggle with the problems of life that confront us, we don’t give up or give in–we fight on because the Lord is with us!
