When Powers Fight You

Mighty powers arrayed themselves against King Ahaz and his people, but the Lord wanted Ahaz to know that those enemies would not prevail,

“Because Syria, Ephraim, and the son of Remaliah have plotted evil against you, saying, ‘Let us go up against Judah and trouble it, and let us make a gap in its wall for ourselves, and set a king over them, the son of Tabel’—thus says the Lord GOD:

‘It shall not stand, nor shall it come to pass.  For the head of Syria is Damascus, And the head of Damascus is Rezin. Within sixty-five years Ephraim will be broken, So that it will not be a people.’” (Isaiah 7:5-8)

Likewise, if you walk in truth, it does not matter who or what arrays itself against you, those powers shall not prevail, but keep your faith in the Lord and watch Him work.
