II Chronicles 20:17 – “This battle is not for you to fight; take your position, standstill, and see the victory of the Lord on your behalf…”
In the ancient days of Israel, the time that would’ve been spent preparing for a military conflict would sometimes take weeks and months.
When God commanded Israel to the battle, it was probably after great preparation had already occurred. I’m sure it was not well received by many soldiers and leaders.
What was God trying to teach? I don’t believe the lesson was that we are not to be prepared. But rather, after all preparation of ourselves and our circumstances, we have to stand firm, stand in confidence, and see the victory of the Lord on our behalf.
You are a spiritual warrior. You have weapons that are indestructible. The Word of God, Prayer, and the Spirit who lives inside of you.
Have a blessed weekend!
