Topic: Fight our battle O LORD, give us victory on platters of gold.
Texts: 2 Chr. 20:15; 1 Cor. 15:57.


It was most probably during his travail that Job said this: “Man who is born of woman is of few days…” (Job 14:1). From all indications, it’s as if peace is becoming more elusive, becoming more of a scarce commodity in our present world; battles for survival in every realm – physical, spiritual, battle within, battle without! May God have mercy on us.

In the face of this, what do we do, where do we go? For us as children of God, what to do is to call our Father in heaven. In Jeremiah 33:3, He God, our loving and caring Father says, “Call to me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.” Where to go, what to do is to run into His pavilion; Psalm 27:5-6 says something in this regard: “For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; in the secret place of His tabernacle; He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock. And now my head shall be lifted up above my enemies all around me…”

In 2 Chr. 20, king Jehoshaphat and his people in Judah were facing an overwhelming battle; the king was troubled sore, but a message of hope and respite came to him, saying, “…Listen, all you of Judah and you inhabitants of Jerusalem, and you king Jehoshaphat! Thus says the LORD to you: Do not be afraid or dismayed because of this great multitude, for the battle is not yours, but God’s.”

Child of God, I urge you to import and appropriate this scripture into your situation, that battle in which you are helpless and hopeless; see the battle as God’s and leave it to Him to fight as He deems fit, expecting nothing short of victory on a platter of gold. This is the victory that we have through Jesus as expressed in 1 Cor. 15:57 – “…thanks be to God, who gives us victory through our Lord Jesu Christ.”

I pray, this season and beyond, God, the Help of the helpless, the Hope of the hopeless will arise in His mercy to fight for us; He will restore hope in us; He will confirm Himself once again as the Man of war, Jehovah Sabaoth. Overcomers, more than conquerors we are now and always in the name of Jesus. Amen and amen. God bless you. SHALOM.
