BATTLES . . . . . 2 Chronicles 20:15 As the enemy bore down on Judah, God spoke through Jahaziel: "Do not be afraid! Don't be discouraged. . . for the battle is not yours but God's." We may not fight an enemy army, but every day we battle temptation, pressure, and "those mighty powers of darkness who rule this 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 for God's help when we face struggles, he will fight for us. And God always triumphs.
How do we let God fight for us? (1)By realizing the battle 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 just our own selfish desires; and (4)by asking God for help.
