Bible Ballistics: BBs #443 The Battle IS God’s!!!
We all have difficulties, trials, unexpected “interruptions”, and surprises, so I’d just like to take a few minutes this morning to remind us all that God is still God and HE has it.
“And he said, Hearken ye, all Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem, and thou king Jehoshaphat,
Thus saith the LORD unto you,
Be not afraid
by reason of this great multitude;
for the battle is not yours, but God’s…….
17 Ye shall not need to fight in this battle:
stand ye still,
and see the salvation
of the LORD with you,
O Judah and Jerusalem:
nor be dismayed;
to morrow go out against them:
for the LORD will be with you.” 2 Chronicles 20:15 & 17
We must always keep our eyes on Jesus, our Father God and His precious Holy Spirit. God has it—no matter where you are or what you are going through, remember, “the battle is not yours, but God’s”, so let Him have it!!! We can trust Him and walk in HIS Spirit.
“Then he answered and spake unto me, saying,
This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying,
Not by might,
nor by power,
but by my spirit,
saith the LORD of hosts.” Zechariah 4:6
So as we go about our living ‘today’, may we remember that the battle “is not yours, but God’s”—and God is our strength and redeemer. Our part is to follow Him, keep our eyes on Him, and walk in the power, provision and wisdom of HIS Holy Spirit
“This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.” Galatians 5:1
God calls us to walk with Him, and He will provide our every need—our job is to consciously walk “in the Spirit” not our own selfish flesh and desires, but in HIS Spirit and HIS way.
“If we live in the Spirit,
let us also walk in the Spirit.” Galatians 5:25
And we can do that because Jesus has given us His Spirit, who empowers us to live through the new covenant; which is the indwelling Holy Spirit:
“To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles;
which is Christ in you,
the hope of glory:” Colossians 1:27
And the Christ in me—never fails:
“Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. 6 So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.” Hebrews 13:5-6
Amen and Amen. God’s got it!!!
