The Lord’s Battle


David had to fight the giant Goliath and knew that in his own strength and power it would be a monumental task. David also knew that he was not fighting this battle alone, The Lord was not only going to fight with him, but The Lord was going to fight for him. The Scripture reminds us that, so all this assembly may know that the Lord saves not with the sword and spear. For the battle is the Lord’s, and He will give you into our hand. I encourage you today to remember that this battle in this season that you are in is not your battle to fight. This battle belongs to The Lord, and He will fight for you. Since the battle is The Lord’s, allow The Lord to fight His own battle. David was able to achieve the victory over the giant Goliath, because He knew that it was not his battle, but The Lord was going to use him to get the victory over the enemy. Let the enemy roar and bark, and you remain confident that The Lord has never lost a battle and He is not going to start with this one. You may want to fight, and you may want to get your hands dirty in battle, but hold your peace, and allow The Lord to fight. The Lord does not save by sword or spear, but He does save, and He will fight, and He always wins, so in this battle I lay down my weapons, and let the Lord fight His own battle, and I know I will have the victory. Since I know this battle is not mine, and that The Lord is fighting for me, I have no doubt, “It’s My Year To Get My Thing From My God!”



Lord today I put down all my weapons and allow you to fight this battle for me. I know that I will have victory because you are fighting and not me. I love you Lord. In Jesus Name Amen.
