The Battle Is The LORD’s

"This is what the LORD says to you: ‘Do not be
afraid or discouraged because of this vast army.
For the battle is not yours, but God’s"
(2 Chronicles 20:15b NIV)
What battles are you fighting? Are you
struggling like a fish out of water?
Our verse for today says exactly what
we need to do to accomplish the peace
in our lives that we need.
So many times we struggle with our pain,
or other issues. We need relief.  I was
abused as a child by a man who called me
his friend.  Many times I struggled with
issues about that throughout the years.
I have learned though that it is me battling
and struggling.  Yes, I need help to get
the victory, but when I learned the battle
was no longer mine but the Lords…what a
difference it made.  I simply told that battle, 
"God is fighting for me and I have nothing
but peace and victory." Then I asked the
Lord to take this battle because I could no
longer fight it. He came in, took over and
destroyed the enemy. 
Now all I have to do when those struggles come
is say to… satan, "I want you to know my Big brother
Jesus has already won the battle at Calvary.
If you want to fight… go talk to him."  WOW! does
he run. After all Jesus put it under the blood at
Calvary.
Now satan can run from you today. Just let go
and let God fight your battle for you. You
have enough to deal with and  to go through.
Give the battle to the Lord. Let him fight it for you
and give you the grace and love so that you will
win the battle.
Father… I ask that you will take the battle for us
all and fight the enemy for us. Rebuke the
devourer for our sakes and cover us with the
blood for protection.  Take all those battling Lord
and give them relief in Jesus name.  AMEN…..
