Think about it


We sometimes face situations that are not planned, they may prove formidable, seemingly impossible. It may even seem like God has forgotten about us or there is no help for us. In our text today: the huge spiritual gates (that represented obstacles) were defiant they were even asking who is this God? But the reply was the God who is mighty The God who is mighty in battle. When God is on your side the battle is already won. We’ll lift up our voices today asking for the Lord of Host to get involved in our battles and bringing it to an end
