You will not need to fight in this battle. Position yourselves, stand still and see the salvation of the Lord, who is with you, O Judah and Jerusalem!” Do not fear or be dismayed; tomorrow go out against them, for the Lord is with you. 2 Chronicles 20:17 NKJV
The king of Israel received news that a great army was coming against God’s people. They would be hopelessly outnumbered and overmatched!
Sometimes thinking about the size of our problems is worse than facing them.
King Jehoshaphat turned to God in prayer first. He did not wait until all his resources were exhausted.
God wants us to cry out to Him in faith first. Not as a last resort when all else fails but as the first and most effective action we can take!
The people of Israel were God’s chosen people. They were His beloved people. The Lord was with them.
Today all people who call on the name of the Lord and put their faith in Jesus are the people of God. We are His chosen people, His beloved people. Jesus is with us today.
God fought this battle for His people. He brought about a great victory for them!
Jesus will fight your battles today. Jesus will bring about great victories in your life if you position yourself in faith!
When a man’s ways please the Lord God causes even his enemies to be at peace with him. How will you please God today? By faith. Without faith it is impossible to please God!
Jesus promised we will suffer trials and tribulations in this world. He also promised never to leave us or forsake us. Jesus will never turn His back on us. Jesus will be with us as we walk in enemy territory through the valley of the shadow of death!
The Lord of Heaven and Earth is not calling you to fight your battles with a sword or spear. He is not calling you to fight your battles with a gun or a knife. God wants you to fight your battles through faith in Jesus Christ!
God is calling you to humble yourself before Him today. He is calling you to submit to His will for your life today. Jesus is calling you to fight through the temptations and deceptions you face today. Jesus wants us to trust Him today!
The battle between good and evil is the Lord’s. Trust Jesus to fight that battle because Jesus is always victorious!
Position yourself in faith. Stand still and see the salvation of the Lord who is with you!
