God does not send you to the front lines by yourself. He doesn't ask you to "get it all together" during your quiet time and then pat you on the head and send you off. However, I think this is the impression we often get today and we end up leaving Him in our quiet times and miss the whole point of going out with Him.
Stand strong IN the LORD and IN HIS GREAT POWER.
Where are we to stand? IN Him. What part of Him? His GREAT POWER. In that place we can put on the full armor. In a previous post, Armour, I share exactly how our armour is comprised of the very attributes of God Himself.
What else does the Bible say about battle?
2 Chronicles 20:15b
For the battle is not yours, but God’s.
The LORD is a warrior;
the LORD is his name.
The LORD will march out like a champion,
like a warrior he will stir up his zeal;
with a shout he will raise the battle cry
and will triumph over his enemies.
The Lord leads the way into battle because He, Himself is the victorious warrior. His offer includes more as you can see in the following Psalm
You hem me in behind and before,
and you lay your hand upon me.
God's offer to us is 360. He goes before us, behind us and He is next to us every step away.
When you face battles in your life remember that God does NOT expect or desire for you to fight alone (pause and take that in). Instead, He has invited you to stand strong IN Him. He will go before you and fight the way and He will surround you in the midst of the battle. Take your proper place in the rank of the battle, you don't have to go about it on your own.
