Victory before the battle begins!
The LORD says, “Why are you doubtful, dismayed, and disturbed about the situation?”
He has already given you the victory even before you started to fight in the battle. So just trust him and rest.
“The horse is made ready for the day of battle, but the victory belongs to the LORD,” Proverbs 21:31.
“But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our LORD Jesus Christ,” 1 Corinthians 15:57.
The Dream Team!
The enemy has to form a team who scrambles around and rack their brains as they think up ways to trap and to plot against you – complete with spies and lies.
And on the other hand, you have the all powerful and all knowing “Dream team” on your side. And as your central intelligence agency, they strategize, battle and fight for you. The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
So all you have to do is stand still.
“Then in the midst of the assembly the spirit of the lord came upon Jahaziel the son of Zechariah, the son of Benaiah, the son of Jeiel, the son of Mattaniah, the Levite of the sons of Asaph; and he said, “Listen, all Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem and king Jehoshaphat: thus says the lord to you, ‘Do not fear or be dismayed because of this great multitude, for the battle is not yours but God’s. Tomorrow go down against them. Behold, they will come up by the ascent of Ziz, and you will find them at the end of the valley in front of the wilderness of Jeruel. you need not fight in this battle; station yourselves, stand and see the salvation of the lord on your behalf, o Judah and Jerusalem.’ Do not fear or be dismayed; tomorrow go out to face them, for the LORD is with you.” 2 Chronicles 20:14-17.
