He knew they would face enemies. So, whenever the Ark set out, Moses would shout, “Arise O Lord, and let your enemies be scattered! Let them flee before you (Numbers 10:35)!”
We know we face enemies too. Though unseen, they are evil spirits with mighty power. We, like Moses, can ask God to chase them away.
Humble yourselves before God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you (James 4:7).
No matter how hopeless a situation may appear, God gives us power in prayer to do something about it. We may be overwhelmed, but God is not. We may not see a way out, but God can. Because of Him we can make a difference.*

You don’t have to know how every prayer is answered; you just have to believe that God has heard them all and will answer in His way and time.*
