Blessed are you, Israel! Who is like you, a people saved by the Lord? He is your shield and helper and your glorious sword. Your enemies will cower before you, and you will tread on their heights.”
Israel was saved out of slavery to Egypt, which served as a story that foreshadowed truth about the how Christ would set us free from slavery to sin and death. As witnesses and ambassador’s for Christ, God is never far from us, and goes before us paving a way for His glory and for our good. On this earth, there will always be enemies to our faith, but those enemies cannot stand against God and will never prevail, just like Israel’s enemies did not prevail until God saw fit for them to do so. In Christ we have been promised eternal life and victory with God, and He is worthy to be praised!
