Commentary from Pastor Michael White:

He who scatters has come up before your face. Man the fort! Watch the road! Strengthen your flanks! Fortify your power mightily. – Nah 2:1

God is good! He is always for us. But we have an adversary – Satan – who seeks to do us harm.

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. – 1 Pet 5:8

Be sober! Be vigilant! But do not fear. We should never be afraid of the enemy, because Jesus already defeated him on the Cross. When we are in Christ, no enemy can overpower us! However, we should always be aware he is there.

We fortify our power by being steeped in the word of God. We strengthen ourselves by canceling Satan’s plans in the name of Jesus! When God is for us, no enemy can overcome us.


Father, I bind the work of the enemy in the name of Jesus! Thank You that I am protected and strengthened by the blood of the Lamb, and that no enemy can defeat me!
