He said: “Listen, King Jehoshaphat and all who live in Judah and Jerusalem! This is what the LORD says to you: ‘Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God’s. 2 Chronicles 20:15
Many times i have had people say life is a battle. That statement is true life is hard, its full of trials and tribulations, so many hardships and challenges. Many times we fight, we lose ,we take chances, we fall and sometimes we win to. But one this that remains constant is life’s challenges and trials, they are always present.
Many times when you are faced with those challenges its easier to cave in and try to figure things out with our strength. we have chosen to fight a war thats not ours to fight thats why the many times we have done that we have ended up more stressed out and overwhelmed because we try to do things our own way and forgot to put God in the middle of out battles.
Many times you have chosen to fight your own battles because you where so afraid to fail and you forgot that you were nothing without God. Without God you are an easy target to the works of the enemy because you are not walking in His power but our own flesh which is weak.
God wants to remind you through his word in 2 Chronicles 20:15 and He says Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God’s. 2 Chronicles 20:15. So when trouble shows up do not be discouraged but trust in God’s power and He will see you through.
God is saying do not be afraid for whatever battle, trial, lose, pain, sickness, enemies, betrayals or who trials to come against you. No matter how big the storm is, whether all your friends and loved ones have turned against and you feel so alone, the army thats rising up against you might be huge but be encouraged because the lord says the battle is not your but it’s God’s.
When you trust God with your battles you will realize that things in your life will get much easier and you will have more peace. You won’t worry and stress because you will know that king of kings is fighting on your behalf.
Whatever storm or battle you face God is with you. With Him you will always have the victory. Trust God, He is in the middle of your situation and will not let anything harm you.
Just like Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-nego where thrown in the fire furnace God was there with them and they never got burnt He will do the same for you. The bible says If this be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of your hand, O king-Daniel 3:17 .
And then in Daniel 3:24-28- King Nebuchadnezzar leaped to his feet in amazement and asked his advisers, “Weren’t there three men that we tied up and threw into the fire?” They replied, “Certainly, Your Majesty.” He said, “Look! I see four men walking around in the fire, unbound and unharmed, and the fourth looks like a son of the gods. Nebuchadnezzar then approached the opening of the blazing furnace and shouted, “Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, and the satraps, prefects, governors and royal advisers crowded around them. They saw that the fire had not harmed their bodies, nor was a hair of their heads singed; their robes were not scorched, and there was no smell of fire on them. Servants of the Most High God, come out! Come here!” So Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego came out of the fire. Then Nebuchadnezzar said, “Praise be to the God of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, who has sent his angel and rescued his servants!
This story in the bible is to remind you that the battle is not yours but the Lord’s. So don’t be afraid or discouraged of what may come against you and Just know God is in Control of your life and His always going to fight your battles for you.
