Deut. 3:22 Do not fear them: for the LORD your God Himself fights for you.
Yesterday marked an important day in Israel. It was the 93rd anniversary of a great victory in Beersheva.
On October 31st, 1917, six hundred soldiers of the Australian 4th and 12th Light Horse Brigade, under the command of Brigadier General William Grant, led a daring attack against the Ottoman army in Beersheva. Armed with only horses and bayonets they charged the deeply entrenched Ottoman army. As machine guns fired, and men and horses were dying, the Lighthorsemen dug in their spurs and continued to press forward to victory. The bewildered enemy failed to adjust their gun sights and their fire began passing harmlessly over the heads of the horsemen, who then quickly overran the Ottoman army utterly defeating them in less than an hour. Historians describe this remarkable battle as the last successful cavalry charge in history.
Sometimes the warfare against us seems overwhelming. We feel inadequately armed, outgunned, and too weak to attack. But fighting with the Lord on our side we do have the weapons we need to achieve the victory! And amazingly, some battles can be won far quicker than we think. We need only press forward and put our trust in Him. A man with God at his side is an army, undefeatable!
Let's be courageous as we press forward for the Kingdom today!
