“And he said, “Listen, all you of Judah and you inhabitants of Jerusalem, and you, King Jehoshaphat! Thus says the Lord to you: ‘Do not be afraid nor dismayed because of this great multitude, for the battle is not yours, but God’s” 2 Chronicles 20:15, NKJV.
Sometimes, when we face a challenge, it can appear like God is nowhere in sight. As a man, it can be tempting to take matters into your own hands and get it done. Yet, be encouraged not to take the position of God. Your position is not, and never will be, to fight the battle on your own.
Your position isn’t to fight the battle, but your to have faith in the One Who fights it for you. Your position is faith! Your position is not fear. Your position is not depression or to live without hope. Your God is always in His position to fight for you. His desire is that you be a light in the midst of it. Obey Him in the midst of it. Be an example of trust and praise in the midst of it.
If you look back over your life, even when you didn’t realize it, your God has fought many battles for you and won them all. This will be no different. Maintain your stance of faith, and let God fight your battles.
Prayer: Father, You are God, and I give You praise this morning. The battle is yours! You fight all my battles and You are fighting them now. Help me not to take Your position, but to keep my position of humility and faith. Help me to be a light to the unbeliever and an example of how to trust in You in the midst of a battle. I thank You for winning this for me. In Jesus’ name, Amen!
