Who is fighting your battles?

It struck me again today, that when we come up against stressful and complicated 'battles' in our lives, who is the one who is doing the fighting for us? Most of the time, we end up getting our 'weapons' ready and we face up, ready to fight. But, we don't stand a chance if that's the way we are going to fight these hardships. In our own strength we will not overcome, so that is why we need to allow God to fight for us.

"You will not have to fight this battle. Take up your positions; stand firm and see the deliverance the LORD will give you, Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Go out to face them tomorrow, and the LORD will be with you.’- 2 Chronicles 20:17

Our battle is not against flesh and blood remember?! If it were, then we could use our own weapons. Instead, isn't it time we handed over the 'battle plan' to God and asked him to fight for us. No one can defend against God's weapons. 

The victory can we ours, through the strength and grace of God.
Hand it over, today! Watch God fight for you!

Living in Grace,
