The Lord is a mighty warrior in battle, and He is with you. The Psalmist declared: “Who is this King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle.” (Psalm 24:8). When you turn your battle over to the Lord, and trust Him and fight it His way, it's no longer your battle but His battle! It is His battle and His victory.
David used the same phrase for his fight with Goliath: “And all this assembly shall know that the Lord saveth not with sword and spear: for the battle is the Lord's, and he will give you into our hands.” (1 Samuel 17:47)
Goliath was much bigger than David. But David's faith was in the God who is greater than all. David showed his faith by declaring the victory in advance and giving God the praise for it. Then he attacked the problem, rather than waiting for it in fear. As we go against our Goliath, we must declare that our faith is not in ourselves but in the Lord, strong and mighty.
Declare: The battle belongs to the Lord. I submit to You, Lord Jesus, as my Commander in Chief and I will follow your instructions. Yours is the Victory.
In praise we magnify the NAME of the Lord, lifting up His AUTHORITY over the battle – it is as we continue declaring that 'the BATTLE BELONGS TO THE LORD' that we have the victory. Praise and worship were the two warfare strategies that God gave to Jehoshaphat to defeat his enemies. The Bible records: “And when they began to sing and to praise, the Lord set ambushments against the children of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, which were come against Judah; and they were smitten.”
I prophesy that we will all enter 2021 in grand style - gloriously and triumphantly in Jesus name.
Declare over yourself, “My victory is sure because the battle belongs to the Lord.”
