Walking in faith and victory

So we're there. Breakfast table. I'm buttering bread for sandwiches - home made sourdough rye, pastrami and salad, since you ask. Neil's reading. Murray M'Cheyne calendar, we use. Deuteronomy 20. Instructions Concerning Warfare.
And aside from this, yesterday, because that's how it happened, he cultivated a half acre of field. Like this.

Does that not look good to plant? Although some earthly little suit is refusing to give us an answer? Would you resist the urge to plant?
So, it's done. A bulk order of seeds, amazingly late in the season (but hey, so far the season's been a wash out. How far behind can I be?) has been placed.

And Deut 20?

Going to War

1When you go to war against your enemies and see horses and chariots and an army greater than yours, do not be afraid of them, because the Lord your God, who brought you up out of Egypt, will be with you. 2When you are about to go into battle, the priest shall come forward and address the army. 3He shall say: “Hear, O Israel, today you are going into battle against your enemies. Do not be fainthearted or afraid; do not be terrified or give way to panic before them. 4For the Lord your God is the one who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you victory.”

I am not afraid (as the children's chorus says!) cos I'm walking in faith and victory. I have to find a way to fence the plot, to plant the plot, to keep it weedfree and fed ... but I can do that. It's what I do.

Right now, we have to fight.
