Victory Belongs to God

But a man of God came to him, saying, "O king, do not let the army of Israel go with you, for the LORD is not with Israel--not with any of the children of Ephraim. But if you go, be gone! Be strong in battle! Even so, God shall make you fall before the enemy; for God has power to help and to overthrow. "Then Amaziah said to the man of God, "But what shall we do about the hundred talents which I have given to the troops of Israel?" And the man of God answered, "The LORD is able to give you much more than this." So Amaziah discharged the troops that had come to him from Ephraim, to go back home. (2 Chronicles 25:7-10a)

  • The battlefield belongs to the LORD. He determines who wins. He has power to help and to overthrow.

  • To trust God is better than relying on our own strength and resources. Numbers and strength do not win a battle. Victory belongs to God.

  • To follow God’s order is better than to mourn for our loss. Besides, God can always supply our needs when we are faithful to Him.
