Inspired by . . . this battle

You will not need to fight in this battle. Position yourselves, stand still and see the salvation of the Lord. 2 Chron 20:17

What battle are you fighting today?

Are you fighting your husband, your kids, yourself? Battles in the public arena, your school, your church?


Be still.

The battle is the Lord's.

He may be speaking to the kingdom of Judah in this OT passage but He is just as clearly speaking to each one of us who consistently fight, battle, and strive in our own strength.

The battle is the Lord's. Our job is to take up the position He has given us and wait and see what the Lord will accomplish.

So what is our position? What has God given us to do?

He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God? Mic 6:8
Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. 1Th 5:16-18
Fear God and keep His commandments, for this is the whole duty of man.  Ecc 12:13

Easy words to read, hard words to follow. Keep them before your eyes. Meditate (think) on them. Practice them. They will become part of your life.

Then, you will cease striving and know ... the peace of God.

Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. Joh 14:27
