Words and Music by Jamie Owens-Collins
When I was younger, I had the great privilege of attending a non-denominational church for a couple of years. They were some of the greatest moments of my pre-teen years as it was during those years that I understood and felt the presence of God for the first time.
One of my favorite songs was “The Battle Belongs to the Lord”. Whenever I was down or scared, I would find myself singing it over and over for comfort. Over the past few weeks I have found myself doing the same thing and it has brought me great strength and comfort.
This morning I was reading the story of David and Goliath and reminded of how when God is on our side, it does not matter how big the giant may be because the battle ultimately belongs to God.
The following is such a powerful passgage and speaks volumes to the trust that we can have in God when we are going through hard times.
Whenever I read this passage, I get goose bumps. There is such power and conviction behind that statement. How awesome did David feel to stand against such a giant and not be afraid? To know that he could stand strong in his faith in God and know that he would prevail? God does not expect us to stand around, do nothing, and think that He will do all the work but He does want us to know that His will and truth will always prevail because the battle is His.
