2 Chronicles 20:15 & 17 (ESV)
15 And he said, “Listen, all Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem and King Jehoshaphat: Thus says the Lord to you, ‘Do not be afraid and do not be dismayed at this great horde, for the battle is not yours but God's.
17 You will not need to fight in this battle. Stand firm, hold your position, and see the salvation of the Lord on your behalf, O Judah and Jerusalem.’ Do not be afraid and do not be dismayed. Tomorrow go out against them, and the Lord will be with you.”
There are so many things on love that are hard to handle. Our verses today are a real promise we can hold on to through the difficult circumstances that come our way. There are some battles that we simply can't fight - and shouldn't fight in our own strength. Sometimes God tells us to take our positions, stand still and see His deliverance. Sometimes we need to take our hands off, stand back and let God fight for us.
We don’t have to fear what comes against us only stand firm in our faith. God knows the everything we are going through. Even though we feel overwhelmed when we look at our circumstances, the Lord sees the whole picture and has a way out for us. We need to let God have control and fight the battle we're facing. He has promised that He is with us and that He will bring us through.
If you are facing a battle today that seems overwhelming, give it to God and let Him fight for you. He will work it all out, and make a way when there seems to be no way to get through it.
Dear Lord, thank You that You are always there and that You know the battles we are going through. Help us to completely trust You to get us through. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
