I stood in front of a TV and watched tracer bullets streaming across the screen. It was a particularly frightening night. It was the beginning of the Gulf War. It was 1990.
American generals knew that their involvement in that part of the world would make the nation of Israel vulnerable. Indeed, they became a target. By the next year, Iraqi missle attacks on the Holy Land seemed like a daily occurrence.
One attack sent a series of 39 missles into Israel. Witnesses describe that day as a miraculous one. US Patriot missles knocked some out of the sky. Others that looked like they were on track, suddenly went off course, and fell in the sea. Still others were thrown off course by wind shears. Some hit their target but failed to detonate. A few detonated in areas where they could do no harm.
39 missles. 39 miracles.
God protects His children. He fights for them. As far back as Moses, Joshua, and Gideon God fought for His children. Today, God continue to fight for us.
Us? By us, I don’t mean just the Nation of Israel. I don’t mean America. I mean those who have been adopted into the family of God. I mean you and I.
Fear Not… If we allow Him, God will fight our battles.
