They Trusted in Him
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. 1 Chronicles 5:20
Are you in a battle? A battle to keep your marriage together? A battle with a wayward child? A battle with disease? A battle with doubt? An internal struggle to follow the right path when everything within you is screaming to take the detour? Come to think of it, all Christians are in a battle! We constantly fight against the allied forces of the world, the flesh, and the devil.
In today's passage, God helped His people in their battle because they cried out to Him "during the battle." God worked on their behalf "because they trusted in him."
Right now, in the midst of your battle, cry out to God. Let Him know that you are in desperate need of His help. Let Him know that you are in desperate need of His strength. Let Him know that you trust Him. God "answered their prayers because they trusted in him." He'll do the same for you!
Father, I pray for all of us in a battle today. We cry out to You in the midst of the battle! We trust You in the midst of the battle! Come to our aid and give us Your strength and deliverance. In Jesus' name. Amen.
