The Battle Is The Lord’s

Are you in a place and time in your life where a situation, circumstance or person seems to overwhelm you and you feel too small to fight?  Always remember that Goliath was a giant.  david n goliath cartoonAnd you know what happened to him when he made the mistake of challenging God's people.  Who did God use to defeat the giant?  A young, insignificant boy.  David & GoliathBut David wasn't little in his faith and he knew Who was with him.   God was faithful to David and His people. (I Samuel 17)  If you have trusted Jesus Christ as your Savior and made Him Lord and Master of your life, He will be faithful to you in your “battle,” just like He was to David. 

There are many struggles that come with being a Child of the King, but there are more promises and advantages.  Our Father fights for us and never forsakes us.  The battle is the Lord's. (I Samuel 17:47)

Psalm 91 (NLT)

1 Those who live in the shelter of the Most High
will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 This I declare about the Lord:
He alone is my refuge, my place of safety;
he is my God, and I trust him.
3 For he will rescue you from every trap
and protect you from deadly disease.
4 He will cover you with his feathers.
He will shelter you with his wings.
His faithful promises are your armor and protection.
5 Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night,
nor the arrow that flies in the day.
6 Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness,
nor the disaster that strikes at midday.
7 Though a thousand fall at your side,
though ten thousand are dying around you,
these evils will not touch you.
8 Just open your eyes,
and see how the wicked are punished.

9 If you make the Lord your refuge,
if you make the Most High your shelter,
10 no evil will conquer you;
no plague will come near your home.
11 For he will order his angels
to protect you wherever you go.
12 They will hold you up with their hands
so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone.
13 You will trample upon lions and cobras;
you will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet!

14 The Lord says, “I will rescue those who love me.
I will protect those who trust in my name.
15 When they call on me, I will answer;
I will be with them in trouble.
I will rescue and honor them.
16 I will reward them with a long life
and give them my salvation.”

Blessed be the name of the LORD.
