“For the battle is not yours, but God’s” [II Chronicles 20:15(NIV)]
December 10, 2023
“For the battle is not yours, but God’s”. This is a real comfort for those of us who are in such a battle. It indicates that the Lord himself fights for us.
Like Jehoshaphat and his army, we may be vastly outnumbered but we need not fear or be discouraged – the battle belongs to the Lord. Paul made it clear that we don’t fight against flesh and blood, but against principalities and powers.
The Lord’s way of fighting is very different from human ways. Our part is to exalt the Lord, just like the people of Judah did and declare that the Lord reigns. Don’t be put off by appearances but stand firm on God’s promises and ‘see the deliverance the Lord will give you.’ [AP]
