God is in the Front Line

God Is in the Front Line

By, C. H. Spurgeon


8 Don’t be afraid, for the Lord will go before you and will be with you; he will not fail nor forsake you.” Deuteronomy 31:8 (TLB)


In the presence of a great work or a great warfare, here is a text which should help us to buckle on our harness. If Jehovah Himself goes before us, it must be safe to follow Him. Who can obstruct our progress if the Lord Himself is on the front line? Come, brother soldiers, let us advance promptly! Why do we hesitate to pass on to victory?

The Lord isn’t only before us; He is with us. Above, beneath, around and within is the omnipotent, omnipresent One. In all time, even to eternity, He will be with us just as He has always been. O how this should give us courage! Dash at it boldly, ye soldiers of the cross, for the Lord of hosts is with us!

Being before us and with us, He will never withdraw His help. He cannot fail Himself, and He will not fail us. He will continue to help us according to our need, right up to the end. Just as He cannot fail us, He will not forsake us. He will always be both able and willing to grant us strength and help till our fighting days are over.

Let us not fear nor be dismayed; for the Lord of hosts will go down to the battle with us; He will bear the brunt of the fight, and give us the victory.
