“When thou goest out to battle against thine enemies, and seest horses, and chariots, and a people more than thou, be not afraid of them: for the Lord thy God is with thee, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.” (Deuteronomy 20: 1)
God’s presence is power. The awareness of this presence is peace. We have God and all that He is with us every moment, in every circumstance. This precious reminder to the children of Israel is ours as well. It is an assurance with an implied demand.
We are being reminded that Omnipotent goodness is with us. And we are being told to wake up to that fact and to give up the fear. We, like those biblical seekers, may be confronted with enemies that seem larger than ourselves—greater in number and more forceful than our own individual convictions—but we don’t need to be afraid. We can face the seeming power of opinions, organizations, poverty, lack, disease, hate, with serene certainty of victory.
For we are not alone. Our devotion to good and our status as children of God—of Spirit, of Truth, of Life, and of Love—is more powerful by far than any appearance of material opposition. We are one with infinite rightness, protected by God’s government and unchallenged law of Love and Life. The horses and chariots and armies of doubt, fear, and distraction, are easily vanquished in God’s presence, and through our conscious acceptance of this Truth of being, for ourselves and for our world as well.
