The battle is not ours, but God’s. This teaching looks at an outstanding record where Jehoshaphat seeks God for help in a life-threatening situation for him and his people. They receive instruction from the Lord, believe it, and then He delivered them out of their situation. God wants His people delivered. In the Old Testament, it was a physical battle; now, it’s a spiritual battle, but the battle has already been won. In life, there are disappointments, but spiritual, mental, and physical deliverance is available. We all have situations where we need help. Do we choose to focus on the situation, or do we choose to focus on God who is able to deliver? Christ won the victory, and we can triumph in Christ! All we have to do now is believe it. We are dealing with a defeated adversary. We don’t have to be afraid to love people or help someone along the way. We are triumphant in Christ. The victory is ours. We are free to enjoy life. Let’s believe “If God be for us, who can be against us?” and watch God bring His Word to pass because He is a God of deliverance.
