Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain. 1 Cor. 15:58

day 255: The Battle is Not Yours

2 Chronicles 20:15
He said, "Listen, all you people of Judah and Jerusalem! Listen, King Jehosaphat! This is what the Lord says: Do not be afraid! Don't be discouraged by this mighty army, for the battle is not yours, but God's.


The Battle is Not Yours, but God's

How many times do we try to fight our own battles?

We do everything we can to 'fix' it (whatever 'it' is) ourselves. If we have a pain, we take medicine to fix it and when that doesn't work, we pray about it.

We have problems at work and try everything we can think of to fix it--- then, when push to comes shove-- we pray about it.

We have problems with our husband/wife, and we read all of the books, blogs, everything *we* can think of. When that doesn't work, we pray about it.

Everybody had battles.  Big or little all battles are big if they affect us in any way. Addictions, family issues, unfaithfullness, whatever it may be-- everything is important to God.

Whatever your battle is... whatever you are fighting... stop and pray about it. Not just pray, really hand it over to God. It's not your battle to fight, it's God's.

God Bless You



  1. Prayer should always be our first response! Once we give our battles to the Lord, He will then enable us to handle them in His strength! Blessings!
