The Battle Is the Lords

By Kevin Litchfield

One of the greatest challenges we battle is control. No one likes surprises. Often times in leadership we can over strategize, over plan, over future forecast, and over fret and worry. We often forget that ultimately the battle we are facing is God’s not ours.

Jehoshaphat experiences this first hand in 2 Chronicles 20:15 when faced with an impossible situation: The says, “Do not be afraid! Don’t be discouraged by this mighty army, for the battle is not yours, but God’s.”

Later in verse 17: But you will not even need to fight. Take your positions; then stand still and WATCH the Lord’s victory. He is with you. What life challenge or battle are you facing today that you need to stand still and wait upon the Lord.
