God Fights Your Battles

iuby Hazel Straub

Fearful and worried about the opposition coming against you? Do you feel the odds look dismal, for your victory? Take heart, God fights your battles. The country of Judah had three countries declare war on them and a vast army marched against them. The king reacted, by calling the country to fast food and pray, seeking God, as they had no way in the natural, to protect themselves. They asked God to intervene on their behalf and he responded to them.

“The Lord says, ‘Don’t be afraid! Don’t be paralyzed by this mighty army! For the battle is not yours, but God’s! Tomorrow, go down and attack them! You will find them coming up the slopes of Ziz at the end of the valley that opens into the wilderness of Jeruel. But you will not need to fight! Take your places; stand quietly and see the incredible rescue operation God will perform for you, O people of Judah and Jerusalem! Don’t be afraid or discouraged! Go out there tomorrow, for the Lord is with you!’” (2 Chronicles 20:15b-17 TLB)

The  king told the people to believe the Lord. A choir led the army praising, worshipping and thanking God. At the sound of their worship, the Lord intervened and gave them victory over their enemies. The enemy turned on each other and killed everyone. When Judah arrived, all they saw were dead bodies. It took Judah three days, to carry all the plunder of jewels, money and clothing. On the fourth day, they praised the Lord and renamed the place, Valley of Blessing. They had rest from all their enemies because the Lord had fought their battle. What looked like certain defeat, ended in tremendous victory.

God is the same yesterday, today and forever. He fights your battles, when you seek him with thankful worship and praise. Your biggest battle turns into the greatest victory and blessing! Rejoice!

  1. Wonderful, wonderful, word! This is one of my FAVORITE stories in the Word of God, and I have run to it more times than I can count to give me faith in the face of a strong enemy attack. Thanks for sharing it and reminding me again that I don’t have to defeat the enemy myself.

    • Praise God that he fights our battles! It is good to know that the enemies riches come to us also. Love how the Lord of Angel Armies is always by our side and what was meant for our evil turns to good. The bigger the threat of the enemy, the bigger the blessing for us! God is so wonderful!

  2. I pray they will see this in Baltimore!

    • The prayers of the righteous avail much! Thank you Lord that you are our defender!

  3. Surrounded. This should be good.
