“The battle is not yours, but God’s.” – 2 Chronicles 20:15
Some battles are not yours-they’re God’s! Listen: “You will not need to fight in this battle. Position yourselves, stand still and see the salvation of the Lord” (2 Chronicles 20:17, NIV). What a relief! Now, if the battle is the Lord’s, guess who chooses the weapons, the battlefield, the strategy, and the timing? That doesn’t mean we don’t have anything to do. God’s people were told to “stand still” and trust in His unfailing faithfulness. Don’t discuss your problems with people who are incapable of solving them. Give them completely to the Lord, then, begin to praise Him for victory.
God told them to put the choir in front of the army and have them march out to meet the enemy. Can you imagine their reaction? But praise moves God! It brings Him into your circumstances. While the choir sang, God moved among the enemy, and they began to fight each other. Israel never fired a shot, they never took a casualty, and the victory they won was so great that it took three days to pick up the spoils of battle. Child of God, the word for you today is, “The battle is not yours, but the Lord’s.” Begin to trust Him and praise Him for the victory that He is going to give you.
