What coward would not fight?

Richard Sibbes in The Bruised Reed

“Let us therefore be ‘strong in the Lord and in the power of his might’ (Eph. 6:10). Let us not look so much at who our enemies are as at who our Judge and Captain is, nor at what they threaten, but at what He promises. We have more for us than against us. What coward would not fight when he is sure of victory? None is here overcome but he that will not fight. Therefore, when any base fainting seizes on us, let us lay the blame where it ought to be laid.”
