The Battle Is God’s Not Yours

by Hazel Straub

The battle belongs to you, my God of Peace and Lord
In your love I rest, not in the might of flashing sword
Safe from the trial of distressful battle, my fears depart
Your embrace heals, consoles, all of my wounded heart

You are my strength, comfort, help, and shield
The battle won by trust in your love, as I yield
I rest in you, enjoying the comfort of your breast
Letting all my fears and anxiety go, while I rest

My confidence is in you for victory is sure
You give me vision and provision is assured
The guarantee in you comes in tranquil trust
No need for me to run, fret or frantically rush

You make me peaceful, comforted, whole and complete
Broken places healed, I’m soothed, filled full and replete
You are my rest, restoration, refreshment and health
My prosperity comes by faith and trust in your wealth

The battle belongs to you, my God and Lord
In quiet confidence, sheltered and adored
The tumult of fierce warfare cannot move me
‘Cause I nestle on your chest, confident in thee

This is what the LORD says: Do not be afraid! Don’t be discouraged by this mighty army, for the battle is not yours, but God’s. (2 Chronicles 20:15 NLT)

  10. With God, who can stand against us? He is our refuge and our strength. Only be strong and very courageous. He will never leave us nor forsake us, and we, like David, can ask, who is this who comes before the army of the living God?

    Thank you for the beautiful reminder! May the Lord keep you in all His ways. Karen
