1 Chronicles 5:20 Scripture Meditation by Stephen Taylor

1 Chronicles 5:20

They were helped in fighting them, and God delivered the Hagrites and all their allies into their hands, because they cried out to Him during the battle. He answered their prayers, because they trusted in Him.

The question isn’t whether we are in a battle but whether we are winning or losing. This morning, this verse stuck out to me for so many reasons. The verse before this one says that these men were trained in all different forms of combat and trained for battle. These weren’t just your run-of-the-mill people but rather warriors, and yet they still needed help!

We are no different from them! We may be experts in a vast array of things, but none of us can win the  battle without the Lord by our side! We may have a small victory here or there, but unless we cry out to the Lord AND trust Him, we will be defeated!

This verse tells us that our victory comes from trusting the Lord! Our prayers can be answered by trusting in the Lord! I love how it says they cried out to Him during the battle; that means they knew Him before the battle! They didn’t stop the battle to learn about the Lord or know Him, but they knew Him going into it and knew they could call on Him for deliverance! They didn’t stop fighting either; they cried out to the Lord during combat, and He delivered them! Trust brought their triumph!

So, let’s get to know Him now, cry out to Him, and continue to fight! No matter how big and bad we think we might be, there is an enemy who is stronger than us but not nearly as strong as the One in us!!!

1 John 4:4: You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the One who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.

Cry out in combat to the Lord and trust Him; then, watch your deliverance unfold!

I love you all, God bless and Glory, Honor, and Praise forever and only to Papa God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit!
