I feel in my spirit that there are so many people out there that are discouraged, ready to give up the good fight because the good fight just got nasty. Please know, you’re not alone in your battle.
2 Chronicles 20 talks about an ensuing battle for Jehoshaphat. He heard many reports of a large army coming against Israel and he was afraid. You see, even kings get fearful! But the first thing he did was to call a fast and pray. He sought the Lord! Listen to his prayer this morning;
“O Lord, the God of our fathers, are You not God in the heavens? And are You not ruler over all the kingdoms of the nations? Power and might are in Your hand so that no one can stand against You. Did You not, O our God, drive out the inhabitants of this land before Your people Israel and give it to the descendants of Abraham Your friend forever?They have lived in it, and have built You a sanctuary there for Your name, saying, ‘Should evil come upon us, the sword, or judgment, or pestilence, or famine, we will stand before this house and before You (for Your name is in this house) and cry to You in our distress, and You will hear and deliver us.’
He brought to remembrance who God is and what He will do. My friends, this is what you too must do, remember who God is. Deliverer, Provider, Healer, Help, Strong Tower, Fortress, Mighty God, Shepherd, He is all this and more. Whatever you need Him to be for you, that’s who He is.
And as they stood before the Lord, He spoke these famous words; ‘Do not fear or be dismayed because of this great multitude, for the battle is not yours but God’s.’ Then He gives them instructions and they worshipped and praised His great name.
Perhaps your battle has been fierce and you want to quit. I say to you, don’t allow the pain you’re feeling today to keep you from your victory tomorrow. He’s already sending reinforcements, already answering your prayers.
Take all that hurt, bitterness and resentment and give it to the Lord. I know, makes no sense in the natural, but it sure brings victory in the supernatural. Only God can see the outcome of your battle. When you look to Him, get HIS instruction, you’ll win everytime. You are an overcomer!
We hear You Father, ‘Stand still and see My Salvation. It’s in the place of rest where confidence in Me and My Word is established. Don’t be afraid. I’m with You. I said I’d never leave you nor forsake you and I won’t. Tuck yourself up under the shadow of My Wing and find rest and comfort in My victory.’ We give You praise this morning, Lord. We will trust in You.
