…We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you.2 Chronicles 20:12 NIV
Good Morning AP Family! This morning I woke up to the darkest grey clouds and remnants of a storm on one side of me, and the bright morning sunshine on the other. This has always been one of my favourite displays of God’s glory in the skies… I am always awed and humbled. And moved by the beauty… and the statement that it makes; the LIGHT overcoming, moving in with instant and blinding fire, chasing down the darkness.
Today’s song, Fighting for Us by Michael Farren, has been on my heart since Dan introduced it a few weeks back. I thought it would be appropriate to share it again for our Wednesday post given the text Darryl took us through in introducing our Realigned Reality series. And as I thought about both of the realities that were displayed in the skies this morning, I had to go back to 2 Chronicles. I was so reminded of vs. 15, where it says
“Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours but God’s.”2 Chronicles 15 NIV
This is one of the realities I have to continually ask God to bring me back to in His grace. I have the tendency to battle in the wrong ways all too often. And the tendency to forget who is the great Commander of the armies. That Jesus is always fighting for those who love Him.
I keep this verse in the kitchen, where I stand to make coffee every morning…
It stays here on the same date because when I first saw it, standing alone, it impacted me so deeply in it’s profound simplicity and I need. That. Reminder. Daily. To put my trust in Him, simply saying… I don’t know what to do, BUT GOD.
Hope this song is a blessing to you as it has so very much been to me.
“…Even in ways we don’t know, You’re fighting for us.”
You will not have to fight this battle. TAKE UP YOUR POSITIONS (worship!); STAND FIRM and SEE the deliverance the LORD will give you, Judah and Jerusalem. DO NOT BE AFRAID; do not be discouraged. Go out to face them tomorrow, and the LORD will be with you.2 Chronicles 20:17 NIV, emphasis added
May the God of Heaven’s armies be your strength this week.
