Whose Battle?

Posted by Daniel Edwards on December 1, 2008

I attended church with my cousin this past Sunday at Valley View Church in Louisville. In Sunday school, we went over a passage in 2 Chronicles. Verse 20:15 really stuck out to me:

“Do not fear or be dismayed because of this great multitude, for the battle is not yours but God’s.”

It was exactly what I needed to hear because, lately, fear has been a great enemy of mine. I have been fretting over what I cannot control- the future, other people, events in the world. And really it’s all irrational because God’s in control and He works all things together for my good (Romans 8:28). My hope is in Him, not in the world, or the stockmarket, or my lucky stars. And that’s where I’m trying to rest from now on- knowing the battle is not mine, but the Lord’s.

Are you struggling with any irrational fear? If so, I recommend you take the course of Philippians 4:6-7:

“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

Let God take care of your worries. He is a big God and He can handle all your fears.
