Who is by your side?

Jeremiah 20:11

But the Lord stands beside me like a great warrior.


It is so amazing when God gives me just the answer I've prayed to Him! He does answer prayer. I opened the Word this morning and immediately I felt so much better.

I didn't have to go any further because God is standing beside me ready to fight my battles for me. I don't have fight. I am able to give it all to Him.

Those of you that read this blog know that I love to dig deeper to the original meanings of words to get the entire meaning of God's word to me. This is so cool ~ The original word for Lord here is the one true God ~ so I've got and you've got the one true God standing with us!!! Yes, Lord!

One version states the verse But the Lord is with me like a dread champion. Either way the original meaning is still the same. The One True Lord is standing with me in all of His awe, strength and might! I don't need to know another thing!

Be encouraged today that whatever you tackle The One True God is standing beside you and wow what a difference this knowledge makes!

Standing together,

Debbie, the Greek meaning that you shared makes sense to me because Jeremiah had been warning the people that the Lord(the One True God)was sending punishment against them for their idoltry.

I love the picture. Praying that I remember the Lord is by my side today.
