Bible Verse of the Week: 1 Chronicles 5:22a

"Many others fell slain, because the battle was God's." -1 Chronicles 5:22a
This is one of my favorite verses in 1 Chronicles because it is a reminder that we are fighting under the Lord's banner. If the battle is God's, defeat is impossible. In Biblical wars, the leaders cried out to God during battle, and He answered each prayer because they trusted in Him. He always delivers us, so we need not trust in our own weapons. When the battle is God's, we must rest full confidence in the Lord, for He is our sword and shield. Defeat in spiritual battles of sin should not be feared either. We should never faint, flee, shrink, nor flinch in the face of evil for the battle is God's! ~Jesselyn
