The Lord is With You!

In my reading one morning, I came across a scripture for you my sisters in hopes of encouraging you this week through 2 Chronicles chapter 20 verse 17:

"You will not need to fight in this battle. Position yourselves, stand still and see the salvation of the LORD, who is with you, O Judah and Jerusalem!' Do not fear or be dismayed; tomorrow go out against them, for the LORD is with you."

A word was given to them as an instruction to march against the invaders without fear, take up their battle positions and watch the Lord fight their battle. Likewise God is saying don't worry about anything. You don't have to justify yourself. You don't have to plea your case. You don't have to pace the floor any longer. Stop pulling out your hair. You've done all you can do. This is one you don't have to fight. As a matter of fact, you can go to sleep tonight.

As an additional confirmation through the Word of God:

Exodus 14:14 "The LORD will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace."

Psalm 44:5 "Through You we will push down our enemies; Through Your name we will trample those who rise up against us."

In other words, the Lord has your situation all in control. Why? Because He is Jehovah Nissi. He is our Banner. Therefore, you already got the victory my sisters... God bless you all!
