Don't let fear cause you to abandon your hope and your vision. Instead, stand in God's presence, cry out to Him, and watch Him rescue you. Throughout the Old Testament, God reminded His people of His track record of goodness. He wanted them to remember it and take courage. But sometimes fear would cloud their memory and they'd begin to doubt. Sound familiar? So He told them, 'Do not be...discouraged...the battle is not yours, but Mine (2 Chronicles 20:15). In other words, 'You don't have to defeat the foe, that is My job. I'm in charge; trust Me to work it out.'
So remember Who's in control of your circumstances today. Stand in His presence, believe His promise!
2 Chronicles 20:9
'...We will stand in Your presence...cry out to You...and You will hear us and save us.'
