2 Chronicles 32:7-8

7 "Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or discouraged because of the king of Assyria and the vast army with him, for there is a greater power with us than with him. 8 With him is only the arm of flesh, but with us is the LORD our God to help us and to fight our battles." And the people gained confidence from what Hezekiah the king of Judah said.

These are the words King Hezekiah speaks to encourage his people when the king of Assyria is threatening Jerusalem. What a comfort for us too as we face our daily battles--there is a greater power with us! God helps; God fights our battles. We daily take comfort that Jesus won the battle against sin death, and the devil. By faith in Christ, that victory is ours, and we can face anything. That is our confidence!
