Worship, Battles And Victory

iu-1by Hazel Straub

Self pity wants us to think that we are alone and are victims. Our Lord Jesus whispers that he gives us battles, to win victories. Often we respond in frightened terror, like the Israelites, when threatened by the giants.  Instead, when we know we belong to the God of Angel Armies, we can respond like David. He declared that he had killed the lion and the bear, when they threatened his sheep and Goliath would like them because he defied Yahweh. David worshipped, as he went to battle, in the name and strength of Yahweh the God of Angel Armies, not with the latest military weapons. Goliath filled with pride, thought his physical size and weapons would give him the victory. Yahweh accompanied David, and gave him the victory, with a slingshot and a smooth stone. Then it was the enemy army who ran in terror, when they saw their champion dead.

Remember, the bigger the enemy and giant, the harder they will fall, to their destruction. Battles give us victory, when we trust in Yahweh, the God of Angel Armies, who fights for us.

For even if we do walk in the flesh, on the other hand, we do not wage war according to the flesh. The weapons of our warfare are not according to the flesh, but of the power of God, and by it we subdue rebellious fortresses, and we pull down reasonings and every high thing that is exalted against the knowledge of God, and we take all minds prisoner to the obedience of The Messiah. (2 Corinthians 10:3-5 ABPE)

  1. Such truth spoken here! So many times as humans we want to crawl up in a corner and just hide from the giant tempting us… We must be like David and proclaim our Lord Jehovah, is much bigger than our tempting giants…

    • The key is worship and coming in the name of the LORD. When we focus on him our covenant keeping God we will not fear the giants that come against us. He is mighty and fights on our behalf. Worship God!
