On Our Side


““Be strong and courageous! Don’t be afraid or discouraged because of the king of Assyria or his mighty army, for there is a power far greater on our side! He may have a great army, but they are merely men. We have the Lord our God to help us and to fight our battles for us!” Hezekiah’s words greatly encouraged the people.”

2 Chronicles 32:7-8 NLT


Hezekiah encouraged the people to remember who fights on their side. Though it may seem like it is impossible with mere men, it is possible with the Lord God Almighty.


There are so many things that seem impossible to overcome by my own strength, intelligent, or ability. I know I often find myself trying to figure things out and often get stressed out trying to figure things out by myself. I hate to say this but, I sometimes feel I have lost my faith in God. I forget that I have the Creator of the Universe on my side! I forget that He does and will fight my battles and is strong when I am weak. The only thing is I don’t reach for Him when I should. I don’t trust that He can handle what problems I face. The things in this life that concern me also do concern our God. Jesus understands what I face on a daily basis. He knows the pain and strain trying to do everything on my own. Jesus, tells me and us today, “We have the Lord our God to help us and fight our battles for us!” 

I need to lay down my battles before God. I need to trust that He wants to help and will help me in time of need. I need to be strong and courageous, not fear nor be discouraged for there is a power greater on our side!!


Thank you Jesus, thank you! Thank you for understanding what we go through. Thank you for your patience and mercy when we try to go about doing things our way. We only end up stressed out and panicking. Thank you for saving us even in our stubborn ways. Thank you Lord Jesus, for your sacrifice that repaired the relationship between God and us. Thank you so much for giving us the privilege to be called your brothers and sisters and also your friend. Thank you Jesus! God I ask for your forgiveness and choose this day to trust in You more. I love you and ask of this in Your Name, Jesus. Amen!
