[The Glory Unveiled]
You will not have to fight this battle. Take up your positions; stand firm and see the deliverance the LORD will give you, O Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Go out to face them tomorrow, and the LORD will be with you.'” ( 2 Chronicles 20:17)
Battles are always approached with strategic mental attitudes and planning; the ultimate goal being to win over perceived enemies. Usually, each side does an under cover investigation to know the man strength and amunition power of their opponents to prepare in advance. But here in Israel, at the time of King Jehosaphat, the army of Israel didn’t follow the laid out military protocols. They have been instructed by a prophet of God to follow a certain procedure he had disclosed to them. This was an approach foreign to their enemies—something that would naturally throw them out of course. They would have carried the battle from the physical sphere to a spiritual arena. As such their opponents were ill prepared for that kind of combat. The best way to win over any battle, even life’s battles is to change the battle plan and mode of engagement. That way the opposing group is thrown into confusion. You would then not have to fight just as the Israelites didn’t have to fight to conquer their enemies. All they did was to take their spiritual strategic positions as instructed by the prophet and then they stood firm [had faith]. They went out to face their enemies but not to fight them but to look upon their destruction. This is what happens when we fight our physical battles with spiritual arsenals. Stop fighting your battles by yourself. There is an army stronger than all the world’s armies ready to fight on your behalf. Engage them and let them do your bidding.
Prayer_Bead: Jehovah Overdo, thank you for the spiritual and physical provisions and supplies. I hand over my battles to you. As I take my position in praise, rise against my adversaries.
