Many of us face many battles everyday; whether it be sickness, financial troubles, a broken marriage, or anything else. We may be like soldiers on a field, facing a battle. We may see Satan's army before us and feel hopeless at the sight of what we are facing. Yet God has spoken, and he has said this battle is not yours, but his.
"Ye shall not need to fight in this battle: set yourselves, stand ye still, and see the salvation of the LORD with you, O Judah and Jerusalem: fear not, nor be dismayed; to morrow go out against them: for the LORD will be with you." 2 Chronicles 20:15-17
Do not fight this battle, for this battle belongs to the Lord. God tells us to be firm, stand still and to trust in the victory we have in the Lord. Do not fear or waver, God is with us. If he be for us, who can be against us? Remember, God never loses a battle.
You may feel defeated because of the ruins that lay around you. Is everything such a mess that it seems hopeless? Yet, God has spoken. Whatever he sets to do, he shall do it. He restores what was lost, he fixes what is broken, heals what is damaged and not only that, but he can make it higher, stronger and better than it ever was before.
"Then the heathen that are left round about you shall know that I the LORD build the ruined places, and plant that that was desolate: I the LORD have spoken it, and I will do it." Ezekiel 36:36
And everyone around you will see what God has done. They will believe in him and glorify him for what he has done in you.
"Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us" Ephesians 3:20
And anything is possible because of God's power that is given unto us to be used. God can do all that we ask, and do it exceedingly more than we ever dreamed of. Stop trying to do it yourself, because there's nothing we can really do. Let God be God, and he can create miracles.
"Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need." Hebrews 4:16
Are you facing a battle? Remember that the battle is not yours, but the Lord's.
