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.
