The Battle is God's

A large group of warriors had gathered to fight the Israelites (2 Chronicles 20:2).

King Jehoshaphat asked God for help. He then appointed a choir to march out into battle in front of the Israelite army.

The worshipers sang: “Praise the Lord, for His mercy endures forever”. When they began to sing, the Lord caused the enemy forces to attack and destroy one other.

Praising God in the midst of a challenge means overriding our natural instincts toward self-protection, strategizing, and worry. Worshiping God guards our hearts against troubling thoughts and self-reliance. They remind us that the battle is not ours, but God’s (2 Chronicles 20:15).

Every battle in this life is God’s. The outcome belongs to Him because He is sovereign. Whatever happens in our life, let us remember to praise God and worship Him.

The Joy of The Lord Is My Strength.

God is Greater than our Problem

God our Father is almighty. No one can match His strength and power.

The Psalmist said: “He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.“ (Psalm 91:1)

Regardless of what today may bring, or the trouble you are now going through, don’t forget that your God is stronger than anything in your life.

So, be confident! The shadow of His all-prevailing presence guarantees that His power can turn even the worst situation into something good.

Our God is Powerful

God’s glory is seen in His almighty power! 

And God has chosen to “show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him” (2 Chron. 16:9). 

From the dividing of the Red Sea, to the marvel of manna in the wilderness, to the miraculous virgin birth, and ultimately to the power of the resurrection, our Almighty God has chosen to demonstrate His strength to bless, preserve, and protect His people. 

And God delights in showing Himself strong in the challenges of our life. God proves His power on our behalf. 

Let us remember to give Him the glory! 

All of God’s promises are always backed by His wisdom, love, and power.
