And he said, “Listen, all Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem and King Jehoshaphat: Thus says the LORD to you, ‘Do not be afraid and do not be dismayed at this great horde, for the battle is not yours but God’s. — 2 Chronicles 20:15
Adapted from the resource Ending Your Day Right Devotional – by Joyce Meyer
If life sometimes seems to be a battle that causes you to feel upset and fearful, you’ll be glad to know you were not meant to fight the battle alone. The Bible says the battle is God’s.
God never loses a battle. And when you work with Him according to His plan, you won’t either.
During trying times, do you worry or worship? Praise and worship should not be limited to a few minutes in church. If you’re not worshiping at home on a regular basis, you may feel like the victim instead of the victor.
But God’s Word clearly details the Holy Ghost-anointed battle plan to combat every challenge you face. When you begin to substitute praise for petition and worship for worry, God will move on your behalf.
Prayer Starter: Father, thank You for always being with me. Please help me to praise and worship You in the midst of life’s “battles” and keep my eyes focused on You. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
