Theme: The Man of God

Topic: The Man of God Fights the People's Battles

Matthew 26:53‭-‬54
53 Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels?
54 But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be?

Some people think they are fighting the man of God’s battles instead of the other way around. They don’t know that the battles the man of God fights are on their behalf and that of future generations.

When Judas Iscariot came with the multitude to arrest Jesus Christ, Peter stood up for Him and severed the ear of one of the servants of the high priest, in his attempt to fight for Jesus Christ. Interestingly, Jesus told Peter He had enough protection, and that His arrest was needful for the fight He is fighting on behalf of Peter and the world - fight for our salvation (Matthew 26:52 - 54).

In another instance, Amalek came against Israel to fight them. The battle was against Israel not Moses. However, Moses took up the battle and determined the outcome of the battle - Israel won (Exodus 17:8-13).

You may never know how much blessing you are accruing to yourself as you support the man of God. You may feel you are doing him or her a favour, when in actual fact, you are the beneficiary of that act.

Prayer Assignment:
1. Pray that you will receive any blessing due you as a result of your support to a man of God.

Scripture Reading: Matthew 26:47 - 54
