This Is Not Your Fight
“You will not need to fight in this battle……….. Do not fear or be dismayed.…..for the LORD is with you.” 2 Chronicles 20:17, NKJV
All of Judah was ready for a battle because the enemy had come to destroy each and every one of them. One day, their life was normal; the next day their life was filled with anxiety and fear about the overpowering enemy that was marching toward them.
Sometimes our life is like that. One day our life is normal with all the normal activities and the next day we awake to some disturbing news that threatens to take away the peace and normalcy that we enjoy so much in our lives.
King Jehoshaphat was also fearful of the approaching enemy and the approaching battle but he also recognized that no enemy was stronger than God. He called a fast and then called on God’s people to pray.
The Lord’s spirit spoke and told them not to fear or be dismayed; that the Lord was with them and they would not even need to fight this battle.
So it is with our God and our battle with our enemy who may be stronger than us but is never stronger than our God.
God would tell us the same thing today; we do not need to fight in the battle for the Lord is with us.
Be encouraged today in knowing that God is with you and you do not need to fight the battle that you seeing before you. Stand to the side, pray and let the Lord fight for you.
