Winning the Battle…

Read: 1 Chronicles 11-12
Marked: 1 Chronicles 11:14, But they stationed themselves in the middle of [that] field, defended it, and killed the Philistines. So the LORD brought about a great victory.

While others fled from the Philistines, two men, Jashobeam and Eleazar, stationed themselves in the middle of a field and defended it.

There comes a time, when to win a battle, I must take a stand regardless of a numerically superior enemy.

In Ephesians 6:13-16 I read, “Therefore take up the whole armour of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.”

To take a stand against an enemy requires preparation, knowledge, and skill in warfare. I must stand in the truth, and in righteousness, fighting for peace, and holding onto faith and not waiver. And the Lord will bring about a great victory.
