Who Is Contending With Whom?

Menacing Look

May 18, 2013

Those who intend to contend with a child of God enter dangerous territory.

For this is what the LORD says: “Even the captives of a mighty man will be taken, and the prey of a tyrant will be delivered; I will contend with the one who contends with you, and I will save your children.

Isaiah 49:25

How would you like to start a fight with someone and find yourself on the wrong side of the Almighty Warrior? Not only will God contend with the foes of His followers, but He will provide for his followers’ children.

It seems to do no injustice to Scripture to extend that promise of protection and provision to grandchildren. We have a faithful Father. He will not take lightly those who attack His kids.

He promises to enter the arena on our behalf. Can you picture a more lopsided mismatch?

If you are attacked by enemies of God (even self-proclaimed Christians) maybe the proper response is humility and compassion.

They’ve chosen an Opponent who will not lose.
