God With Us

“Now look, God Himself is with us as our head, and His priests with sounding trumpets to sound the alarm against you. O Children of Israel, do not fight against the LORD God of your fathers, for you shall not prosper.”  2 Chronicles 13:12

Abijah was outnumbered 2 to 1 when he spoke this to Jeroboam.

Lord, we thank You for being with us as our head and always over us.  And here’s a simple poem . . .


Oh how You prosper us
in Your power, in Your love

turtle doves

always with us
over and above

all that comes against
to discourage and destroy

but flees as we shout
Your name with joy.


  1. Oh YES! I love that He comes against all that would harm (stress out) His precious children–us–and that all we need do is shout His Name in Joy. Quick, He comes to the rescue!–and the powers of darkness surely flee! Thanking Him tonight, and praying His blessed covering over you and your angel–through the night, and into your work day. Love you much, your sis Caddo

  2. I will hide under the shelter of His wings… and always look to Him, the Author and Finisher of our Faith…
    Love your simple poems Deb!

  3. “Lord, we thank You for being with us as our head…..”

    And because we obedient ones have the Lord as our head, Debbie, we can lay claim to this promise in Deuteronomy 28:13 for ourselves, individually and corporately.

    What could God do with a group like that in every city? I pray one day we get to testify. Thanks.

  4. What a blessing and a privilege it is to know, that our God is omnipresent, ever present with us. A great reminder for when I feel so alone, and isolated from the world. Thanks, Encouraging Debbie! Love and prayers!


  5. amazing sis..God bless you

  6. What would we do without His consistent presence and grace in our lives? ONe of His greatest blessings to us is His continual intervention in our lives. Lord bless you for posting this wonderful truth!

  7. King Abijah (2 Chron. 13; 1 Kings 15) was a lot like most of us in that he was not a wholehearted follower of God. He walked in the same sins that the kings before him committed. Yet, in this instance, with his back against the wall and outnumbered 2 to 1, he threw himself on the mercy seat of God and trusted in Him. And God rescued him.

    “…always with us
    over and above…”

    What a great and awesome God we serve.

  8. very beautiful Debbie. You have so much talent in poetry writing.

  9. “Hallelujah”!! Praise God!! Mercy,mercy if it had not been for the Lord who was on “my side”!! Where would I be. “Whew” thanks Debbie for this powerful post,I am truly blessed by it Amen! My heart is filled with delight because God rescued me. I love you Debbie and your kind and loving spirit. 😀

  10. You’ve covered it Deb. His care of each one of us receives His 100% commitment – just as though we were the ONLY one He has! Incredible! Incomprehensible, yet true and we rejoice in the REALITY.

    What more can be said, other than
    What an amazing God!

  11. Thank you so much for covering us in prayer, Sis Caddo Delight! And for showing us how He covers us, His precious children! love you and God bless you as He comes to the rescue over and over again!

  13. Great comment, Roger! 🙂 Praying for us to respond to Him and be His people and His witness. God bless you and keep you tuned in to Him!

  14. That is so true, praising Paulette! And I know that isolated feeling . . .praying that His presence sits and stays with you today! God bless you as you lift His name in praise. love and prayers for you too!

  15. God bless you too, Betty, as He smiles over you today!

  16. Your comment really blessed me, Pastor Rob. . .that continual intervention. As a caregiver, I can get tired and worn down . .. but not God! God bless you as He keeps pouring Himself into your life!

  17. Just noting what you did , Larry, really gets me excited about our awesome and great God! We don’t have to be perfect or have it all together to throw ourselves on His mercy . ..and see tremendous results. God bless you as you trust in His mercy and power today!
