Whose Battle Is It?

[160 words]

In Joshua chapter 10, we read how God fought on Israel’s side to defeat their enemies (the Amorites). In verse 11, we find this verse: “As they fled before Israel on the road down from Beth Horon to Azekah, the Lord hurled large hailstones down on them, and more of them died from the hail than were killed by the swords of the Israelites.”

God has been known to step in and do battle against his people’s enemies. Sometimes, the battle tactics are obvious and, many times, the tactics are subtle. It takes wisdom to discern how the Lord does this. How often have I felt that I was alone with my difficulties and worries and battles… until I remember who it is that is standing by my side, fighting for me. 

Remember what God told Jehoshaphat: “Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God’s” (2 Chronicles 20:15b).
