'LET HIM FIGHT': People in my community.

.
"Thus says the Lord to you, be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours but God's" - 2 Chronicles 20:15b
.
Right from the time of the creation of world, God has been known as the man of war. It is in this characteristics that we know Him to be Jehovah Tsebaoth, meaning the Lord of host (Psalm 24:10).
.
He fought the battle for the Israelites as they exited the land of Egypt. He fought for people and nations who involved Him in their battles.
.
But there's a condition that would allow God to fight for you over the challenges that you're facing. You must give it over to Him. It is the battle that you surrender to God in faith and prayer that becomes God's.
.
When Jehoshaphat was faced with the battles from the children of Moab and Ammon, all he could do was to give it over to God by calling upon Him (2 Chron. 20).
.
Do you think you can win any battle in life with your own strength? King Saul and the armies of Israel thought they could defeat the host of the Philistine in their ability for a couple of days but thank God that a man who put His trust in God came to their rescue (1 Sam. 17).
.
It is better you allow God fight for you so that the battle can be the Lord's and you'd be at ease (Ex. 14:14). You must cry out to God day and night just as Jesus captured in the parable of the widow and the unjust judge (Luke 18:1-8).
.
Are you faced with health challenges, marital issues, financial issues or any storms of life? Who you put your trust in determines the outcome of your battle - victory or defeat. Remember that some trust in chariots and horses but only few put their trust in Him (Ps. 20:7).
.
Trust in God no matter the challenges, storms or opposition. Put your faith in Him. Cry to Him night and day and He shall avenge you speedily.
