OUTLINE: DCLM DAILY MANNA DEVOTIONAL 20TH FEBRUARY 2021 TODAY
During World War II, the British Prime Minister, Winston Churchill dramatically brought in a young inexperienced officer as commander when the preferred choice died in a helicopter accident. The young man was a Christian. As he took charge, he told everyone to pray and ask God to take over. And He did. The course of the war was reversed and victory came eventually to the Allied forces as the Axis forces surrendered. The children of Judah were confronted by a formidable three-nation force.
The king, Jehoshaphat, summoned all Judah to Jerusalem to ask help of God. He responded through Jahaziel assuring them that the battle belonged to Him. And since the battle was God’s, all they had to do was to “Praise the LORD; for his mercy endureth forever” (verse 21). And the Lord took over the battle. The enemy forces were discomfited. Our God, Jehovah, is a Man of war (Exodus 15:3). He fought for Israel against Pharaoh and the Egyptian army and they were drowned in the Red Sea.
He also fought against the Canaanites by casting down huge stones from heaven to destroy them (Joshua 10:11). He sent an angel to destroy 185,000 soldiers of the boastful Assyrians in one night (2 Kings 19:35). God has not changed. He still fights for His people today. However, the battle of today for the believers is “not against flesh and blood, but against principalities and powers”. Our Lord Jesus Christ defeated them at Calvary, thereby, giving the victory to all His followers.
Thought For Today: With the God of battles on your side, victory is sure.
