Scripture: Exodus 17:16, and he said, “The Lord has sworn; the Lord will have war against Amalek from generation to generation.”
There are battles won once for all, not to be repeated. There are battles warring like invading ants, a persistent, continual threat.
God proclaimed victory over Egypt. God promised permanent war versus Amalek.
Jesus said, “It is finished!” On the cross He vanquished sin and death. Victory, once for all. Yet it is a battle repeated with each decision an individual makes to accept or deny His truth.
Daily our lives pound with unbelief, disbelief. We battle fear for a lifetime. Yet Jesus’ outcome changes not. It is done.
“The Lord has sworn.” He is warring against Amalek in each generation, calling His people to Himself, standing in the breach.
Thank you Lord, that You fight for me. Thank you for Your victorious outcome. May I stand my ground when each skirmish hits, firm in Your conquest.
Psalm of Worship: Psalm 33:11
The counsel of the Lord stands forever,
The plans of His heart from generation to generation.
