“He said, “Listen to me, King Jehoshaphat and all you people living in Judah and Jerusalem.
The LORD says this to you:
‘Don’t be afraid or discouraged because of this large army. The battle is not your battle, it is God’s.
Tomorrow go down there and fight those people.
They will come up through the Pass of Ziz.
You will find them at the end of the ravine that leads to the Desert of Jeruel.
You won’t need to fight in this battle.
Just stand strong in your places, and you will see the LORD save you.
Judah and Jerusalem, don’t be afraid or discouraged, because the LORD is with you.
So go out against those people tomorrow.’” – 2 Chronicles 20:15-17
Stand strong. The Lord will save you.
Don’t be afraid. The Lord is with you.
My favorite part of this set of verses is ‘you won’t need to fight in this battle.’
Sometimes… we strive when we should stand strong.
