The Battle Is Not Yours

Have you been in trouble? 

This was the rhetoric question in the church mass this morning. Though we would not necessarily acknowledge the grim fact of life, we live in a world that is far from being trouble free.

The life of King Jehoshaphat is an admirable inspiration to glean when it comes to overcoming troubles of life. When he heard of the "vast of army" coming against him, he humbly turned to "resolve to inquire of the Lord" (2 Chronicles 20:2-3).

When we are faced with troubles, most of us seek help from people around like family and friends. Some of us keep it to ourselves and find means on our own ways. We fail to call God who has the ultimate key to everything.

How secured we are in the middle of troubles if we just bear in mind that we should "not be afraid or discouraged" and if we realize to ourselves the beautiful assurance that "the battle is not yours, but God's..." (2 Chronicles 20:15).

It is indeed true that if we do not see God behind every tall odd that we face in life, we feel weak. Many times we experience feeling helpless in times of troubles because we forget to acknowledge God every step of our way.

As such, today I wholly lift and entrust my life to God. Whenever I come to face difficulties, I will always remind myself to ask God above every one first. It is impossible for me to beat all these but I must be assured enough to know that I have a great God who can.
