Deuteronomy 1:30-31 (NIV) The Lord your God, who is going before you, will fight for you, as he did for you in Egypt, before your very eyes,
and in the desert. There you saw how the Lord your God carried you, as a father carries his son, all the way you went until you reached this place.”

God has gone before each of us in our lives, he already knows what is in store for us, whether we choose to follow his will or whether we try to make our own path. If we follow his purpose it will be a much straighter path. As we follow him, he will do the fighting for us that we will or never have noticed. He is our loving father and will forever love us and protect us, we just need to take the steps in faith that are presented before us.
