Everyday Promises – 114

To give you victory

For the Lord your God is the one who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you victory.” Deuteronomy 20:4 NIV

There is a story in One Miracle After Another, by Greg Budd, about Pavel Goia and his church that shows just one of the many ways that God can fight for his children. The need for Bibles was desperate in Communist Romania. Some church members decided to smuggle some Bibles. With careful planning the Bibles arrived safely and were hidden behind a wall of wood in the woodshed, as the church was searched regularly. That weekend the youth had a social night and some lazy youth chucked a load of watermelon rinds into the woodshed. Later that week a message was circulated that the police had been informed about a load of Bibles that were hidden at the church. Pavel and some friends hid to watch what would happen. The police made a thorough search of the church but could find nothing. They went to the woodshed pulled open the door but then jumped back as a swarm of angry wasps emerged. Pavel had forgotten to come back and clean up the watermelon rinds. The police would not go into the woodshed because of the wasps. God protected the Bibles for his people. No matter what enemies you face God has a million ways to rout the enemy and give you victory. Ask his help and trust his outcome.
