The battle is not mine, it is God’s.
Thousands of years ago, Jahaziel stood in front of all of the people of Judah and told them, ” You will not have to fight this battle. Take up your positions, stand firm and see the deliverance the Lord will give you, Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Go out to face them tomorrow and the Lord will be with you.
I just need to take up my position, stand firm and watch God fight my battles.
My correct position is to put myself where he wants me. He leads, I follow.
I stand firm by staying focused on the purpose he as given me and keeping my daily relationship with him strong.
And then he delivers me.
He’s done it before, he will do it again.
So why do I sometimes have doubts that haunt me in the darkest part of the night? Why do I start focusing on my plans and purposes only to become frustrated and confused?
Why do I draw up battle plans and go full steam ahead just to be defeated once again?
I have the Lord of all of the Armies on my side ready to fight my battles for me.
When am I really, really going to get that?
Thank you, dear Father. I face all of my tomorrows knowing that you are with me and you are for me.
