Who Is Fighting Your Battle??


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. (II Chronicles 20:15 NKJV)
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.” (II Chronicles 20:17 NKJV)

All of us have found ourselves in a battle; a situation where we just didn't know what to do!! A time when no matter how hard we tried nothing seemed to change. Our battle continued to rage on. 

In 2 Chron. 20 we read about Jehoshaphat , King of Judah. When faced with an invasion from three nations joined together, he called for a day of prayer and fasting. The Lord spoke through a prophet, telling his army to take up their battle positions and watch The Lord fight this battle. 

I believe this is what The Lord wants from us today!! Many times we try to fight our battle. We look for ways to make it easier or shorter and often end up making matters worse!! Really all He is asking is for us to have faith and trust in Him! We don't always understand His ways. (Iss.55:8) But one thing we do know The Lord will fight for us and we just need to be still. (Exodus 14:14 NIV)
