2 Chronicles 20:15 NLT He said, “Listen, all you people of Judah and Jerusalem! Listen, King Jehoshaphat! This is what the Lord says: Do not be afraid! Don’t be discouraged by this mighty army, for the battle is not yours, but God’s.

In the old covenant, God fought their physical battles. It didn’t mean they sat back while angels defeated their enemies in every battle. They had to put in effort, but they were guaranteed victory by God.

In the new covenant, because of Jesus, we have been guaranteed the victory over our spiritual battles (2 Cor. 2:14). It doesn’t mean we just sit back and everything will get handled by God. We still have to fight, however, the only fight we have left to fight is the good fight of faith (1 Tim. 6:12). The reason why it’s a good fight is because we win.

When we place all our battles into God’s hands and we believe He’ll do what His word says He’ll do, we’ll have victory every single time. The only way we’ll lose is if we attempt to fight the battle ourselves without Him. Even that loss is temporary because when we come to ourselves and go back to the Father, He’ll turn that “loss” into a win.

Whether it’s family issues, pornography addictions, low self-esteem, gambling habits, or previous hurts, give that battle to the Lord, trust Him, and do what He says, and we’ll experience victory like never before.
