The Battle Belongs to God

The Battle Belongs to God


The battle does belong to the Lord as we serve Him, but sometimes we think we have to fight it on our own, or with the help of other means. Don’t fight; just stand strong in your places. I have always loved how Jehoshaphat said, “Listen to me, people of Judah and Jerusalem. Have faith in the LORD your God, and you will stand strong. Have faith in his prophets, and you will succeed.”

Father, I do want to stand strong in my place; to be who I am to be, and to do what I am to do. You are the One who fights my battles, and I do thank You. I love You. AMEN

Lord, I know that You are kind and forgiving, and that You have great love for those who call to You. You hear my prayers. Psalm 86

 

The Battle Belongs to God

Scripture:

14 Then the Spirit of the LORD entered Jahaziel. (Jahaziel was Zechariah’s son. Zechariah was Benaiah’s son. Benaiah was Jeiel’s son, and Jeiel was Mattaniah’s son.) Jahaziel, a Levite and a descendant of Asaph, stood up in the meeting. 15 He said, “Listen to me, King Jehoshaphat and all you people living in Judah and Jerusalem. The LORD says this to you: ‘Don’t be afraid or discouraged because of this large army. The battle is not your battle, it is God’s. (2 Chronicles 20:14-15 NCV)

17 You won’t need to fight in this battle. Just stand strong in your places, and you will see the LORD save you. Judah and Jerusalem, don’t be afraid or discouraged, because the LORD is with you. So go out against those people tomorrow.’ ” (2 Chronicles 20:17 NCV)

20 Jehoshaphat’s army went out into the Desert of Tekoa early in the morning. As they were starting out, Jehoshaphat stood and said, “Listen to me, people of Judah and Jerusalem. Have faith in the LORD your God, and you will stand strong. Have faith in his prophets, and you will succeed.” (2 Chronicles 20:20 NCV)
