The Battle Is Yahweh’s

by Hazel Straub

Feeling pressed on every side, between the proverbial rock and hard place? Have you grown weary of the battle of conquering a repeated sin or destructive habit? The LORD of Hosts (Yahweh Sabaoth, God of the Armies of Israel), who rules the armies of heaven and men, says, “Fear not. I AM fighting your battles. Rest and have full confidence in me, not in flesh or blood. Cease from your labor and striving, to defeat the enemy. It is my war not yours. Bask in my love. Watch the enemy melt like wax in my presence.”

1 Samuel 17:45-47 (NIV)
David said to the Philistine, “You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. This day the Lord will hand you over to me, and I’ll strike you down and cut off your head. Today I will give the carcasses of the Philistine army to the birds of the air and the beasts of the earth, and the whole world will know that there is a God in Israel. All those gathered here will know that it is not by sword or spear that the Lord saves; for the battle is the Lord’s, and he will give all of you into our hands.”


  1. True. Every battle I face, when handed to my loving Father, is HIS battle and HE is ALWAYS victorious.
    What an amazing God!


    • Yes, we have an amazing God!


  2. Amen….its a fixed fight we win,win……


    • Yes, Yahweh wins it for us!
