THE BATTLE IS THE LORD’S

23 Jan

2 Chronicles 20:15

…Do not be afraid nor dismayed because of this great multitude, for the battle is not yours, but God’s.

When
faced with a problem or challenge, we tend to ask ourselves, “What
am I going to do?” And well-meaning family members and friends will come
along and ask, “What are you going to do?”

Jehoshaphat faced a
multitude of enemies. But instead of focusing on what he would do, he
prayed, “O our God, will You not judge them? For we have no power
against this great multitude that is coming against us; nor do we know
what to do, but our eyes are upon You.” (2 Chronicles 20:12)

When
we turn our eyes to God, we will hear Him say, “Do not be afraid nor
dismayed because of this great multitude, for the battle is not yours,
but God’s…You will not need to fight in this battle. Position
yourselves, stand still and see the salvation of the Lord…” (2
Chronicles 20:15, 17)

But standing still is the last thing we
want to do when the enemy is coming against us. It is also the most
difficult thing to do because we feel that we cannot just stand around
and do nothing—we must try to save the situation. But God wants us to
stand still and see Jesus our salvation fight for us.

So what do
you do the next time you are faced with a battle and don’t know what to
do? Jehoshaphat sent his singers to the front of the army to proclaim,
“Praise the Lord, for His mercy endures forever.” (2 Chronicles 20:21)
Some people will wonder, “Does that mean that I just sing and don’t do
anything else when I have a problem?” No, that is not what I am saying.

Do
what the situation requires, but don’t worry and don’t trust in what
you do. Like Jehoshaphat, rest and trust in His mercy that endures
forever. When you do that, God will turn your battlefield into the
Valley of Berachah. Berachah means “blessings”. The children of Israel
gave the battlefield this name because it took them three days to gather
all the spoils of war! God turned their situation into a great
blessing! (2 Chronicles 20:25–26)

Do you have a battle to fight? Stand still and see the salvation of the Lord!

Thought For The Day:
God wants us to stand still and see Jesus our salvation fight for us.
