When I was a kid, we used to sing a song in church that had a line with these lyrics, “Victory in Jesus, my savior forever.”
Great song and great truth! Our victory is in Jesus, and there’s nothing he can’t do when we call on him.
“I am the Lord, the God of all the peoples of the world. Is anything too hard for me?”
When we face battles, God promises to fight for us and give us victory. It’s his nature to fight for us, but it’s up to us to trust him.
“He said, “Listen, all you people of Judah and Jerusalem! Listen, King Jehoshaphat! This is what the Lord says: Do not be afraid! Don’t be discouraged by this mighty army, for the battle is not yours, but God’s.”
2 Chronicles 20:15.
When we trust him, we let go of what we have and grab onto him. When we trust him, we don’t try to fix it or do it our way; we let him do things his way. This is a BIG deal because it’s easy to take control and do things our way, especially in a fight.
We want revenge or to be right. We want the last word and win. But God leads us differently; when we trust him, he will give us victory and peace.
What good is winning with no peace?
Jesus has perfect peace for us, and when it comes to this area of our lives, it’s Our Victory, His Battle.
So here’s the question, are you letting God fight your battle?
If we’re fighting, we get tired, frustrated, overwhelmed, and helpless. When God is fighting for us, we’re empowered, peaceful, and strengthened,
Notice the difference!
Sometimes we want to fight and get even. What we need is to let God fight for us and have peace.
So, here are three ways to let it be His Battle.
This sounds like a church cliché, but it’s true. When we pray, were inviting Jesus into the situation, and when we pray, we give it to God.
We can give him our cares, and he receives them (see 1 Peter 5:7). Prayer also helps us overcome worry (see Philippians 4:6).
Through faith, prayer is how we give God things, and it’s how we empower him to move in our lives. Whatever battle you’re facing, please pray and let it be His Battle. He always wins!
Second, be thankful.
Thanksgiving is the doorway into the presence of God. This is how we access him, and it’s how we stay clean in our hearts. Being thankful stirs worship and helps us remember what he did for us.
This causes our faith and hopes to grow because we’re thinking about what he did. We remember how he came through before, which then helps us let go of control and give it to him.
What are you thankful for today?
Please make a list and read it daily. Give God your heart through thanksgiving because when we’re thankful, our hearts will open up.
Third, include others.
Powerful things happen when we agree in prayer with others.
“I also tell you this: If two of you agree here on earth concerning anything you ask, my Father in heaven will do it for you.”
Having others pray, help, and be there with us is a big deal in our faith. It’s a part of being in the family of God.
Furthermore, when we include others, it’s the promise of agreement, prayer, and the strength of others to let it be His Battle!
We all need others and need to be a part of a local church. This is a function of our faith; when we have it, we’re stronger.
The devil wants us to isolate, God wants us to insulate!!
God sets this up as Our Victory, His Battle, so let it be.
Right now, let God have your battle. Give up control and let him do what you can’t do.
What’s your battle?
Fear, addiction, greed, hate, lust, family, friends, anger, lack, and more.
It doesn’t matter, God is ready to fight your battle and give you the victory. If God did it for me, he can do it for you.
Our Victory, His Battle!
Today is the day, and God is with you.
