The Battle Is The Lord Of Heaven’s Armies

by Hazel Straub

How many times have you gotten discouraged due to the battle swirling around you? Looking at things in the natural realm, it is easy to get intimidated. However, behind the physical manifestation, there is a spiritual battle. The enemy of our souls wants us to become depressed, discouraged and to give up. God wants you to know that it is his battle and he gives the victory.

David was a teenager who came to the battle to give his older brothers gifts and to bring a report back to his father. He found the Israelite army running in fear from a giant named Goliath, who taunted them. The Israelites had run in fear, forty days. David immediately, saw it as a spiritual battle, where the giant and the Philistines were defying the armies of the living God. David had killed lions and bears, who were attacking his father’s flocks of sheep and goats and he knew God would also fight for him, against the giant.

David defeated the giant, with the help of the Lord of Heaven’s Armies and with a stone and a shepherd’s slingshot. He knew it was the Lord’s battle and he walked in faith and confidence, in the Lord. Although the giant cursed and boasted, David killed him with a stone and the whole enemy army fled in defeat.

No matter how strong the enemy coming against you might seem, God defeats the enemy. Take heart and know the battle is not yours but the Lord of Heaven’s Armies!

David replied to the Philistine, “You come to me with sword, spear, and javelin, but I come to you in the name of the Lord of Heaven’s Armies—the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. Today the Lord will conquer you, and I will kill you and cut off your head. And then I will give the dead bodies of your men to the birds and wild animals, and the whole world will know that there is a God in Israel! And everyone assembled here will know that the Lord rescues his people, but not with sword and spear. This is the Lord’s battle, and he will give you to us! (1 Samuel 17:45-47 NLT)
