Where can I turn when I feel overwhelmed by those who are against me?

Joshua 17:12But the descendants of Manasseh were unable to occupy these towns because the Canaanites were determined to stay in that region.

One of the first steps to defeating our enemies is to realize that they may be more determined than we are.

Psalm 71:1-5, 14Lord, I have come to you for protection; don’t let me be disgraced. Save me and rescue me, for you do what is right. . . . O Lord, you alone are my hope. I’ve trusted you, O Lord, from childhood. . . . But I will keep on hoping for your help; I will praise you more and more.

Psalm 143:9Rescue me from my enemies, Lord; I run to you to hide me.

When you feel overwhelmed by opposition, turn to God and not away from him, for he is the only one who can really help you. Although your enemies may think they have you trapped, they underestimate the power of the One you serve.

Psalm 5:8Lead me in the right path, O Lord, or my enemies will conquer me. Make your way plain for me to follow.

Follow God’s direction and instructions. You may be out of options, but he is the God of unlimited resources. Only he can show you the way to victory.

Matthew 10:28Don’t be afraid of those who want to kill your body; they cannot touch your soul. Fear only God, who can destroy both soul and body in hell.

Deuteronomy 20:1“When you go out to fight your enemies and you face horses and chariots and an army greater than your own, do not be afraid. The Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, is with you!”

Ezra 8:31We broke camp at the Ahava Canal on April 19 and started off to Jerusalem. And the gracious hand of our God protected us and saved us from enemies and bandits along the way.

Trust God for the outcome. Evil cannot defeat God, so if you are on his side, ultimate victory is sure.
