Let the Lord Fight for You

"You shall not need to fight in this battle; take your positions, stand still, and see the deliverance of the Lord [Who is] with you, O Judah and Jerusalem. Fear not nor be dismayed. Tomorrow go out against them, for the Lord is with you. 2 Chronicles 20:17
We all face various kinds struggles, battles, illnesses, and troubles. We may escape some we don't even know about because our gracious Lord has already gone ahead of us to clear the way. 

There are others, though, that we will stumble into. We merely need to recall the story of the Apostle Paul to know the type of trials he faced as one who served God faithfully. So to, we will have problems and challenges, which we might refer to as “the storms of life.”

We can rest assured, though, that God already knows what's ahead. He has a plan for coming to our aid. He knows what He will do. He has a plan to bring us through our storm.

Second Chronicles 20 above tells us that we do not need to fight our own battles. He will fight them for us. We need to take our positions, be still, trust, and remain in Him for as long as it takes until our breakthrough comes.
