Sermon Notes

The Battle Belongs to the Lord
Psalm 20:1-9
 
Whenever we find ourselves up against a battle, we obviously want God’s help and favor. King David was no different. As he anticipated physical conflict with his enemies he also considered the spiritual connection and found himself, with his people, on their knees in petition seeking God’s favor and help. Victory in any battle must proceed from a reservoir of personal intimacy with God. While the battle belongs to the Lord we often do battle with ourselves to get our own hearts right and submissive before the High King of Heaven. What conflict are you facing right now? Is it a battle you are fighting in your own energy and power of the flesh or have you acknowledged that that the battle belongs to the Lord? We must not trust in chariots or horses or in our own might and power, we must place our confidence in God alone for the victory. Bring it Home as you Listen for LIFE!
