"Listen to me,
all you people.....
The Lord says,
'Don't be afraid!
Don't be paralyzed.....
For the battle is not yours, but God's!'"
~2 Chronicles 20:15 (LB, in part)
Bible Commentary:
Written as the enemy bore down on Judah,
God spoke, "Don't be afraid. The battle is not yours, but God's."
We may not fight an enemy army,
but every day we battle temptation,
and 'wicked spirits in the spirit world (Ephesians 6:12)
who want us to rebel against God.
We must remember that, as believers,
we have God's Spirit in us.
If we ask God's help when we face struggles,
God will fight for us!
How do we let God fight for us?
1) By realizing the fight is not ours, but God's;
2) By recognizing human limitations and allowing
God's strength and power to work through our fears and weaknesses;
3) By making sure our battle is for God and not our selfish desires;
4) By asking God for help in our daily battles.
