fighting battles

I came across another verse in II Chronicles that meant a lot to me early in my Christian walk.

"You need not fight in this battle; station yourselves, stand and see the salvation of the LORD on your behalf..."
- II Chronicles 20:17

What battle are you currently fighting? Might as well let God fight it for you. He's a lot stronger than you are.

That's one of my favorite stories from the Bible. It's notable that this is one of the few times where God instructs Judah to simply stand aside instead of working through an Israelite army. What's the difference? Jehoshaphat went to God first instead of trying it his way, failing, and then asking God for help.

yeah, that's good to do. God help me do it more!
