You will not have to fight this battle. Take up your positions; stand firm and see the deliverance the LORD will give you, Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Go out to face them tomorrow, and the LORD will be with you.
God knows the battles you face each day. You are not alone. If you want deliverance you need to give it all to God. You don’t have to be afraid, you don’t have to be discouraged, but you do have to stand firm in your faith. You can face tomorrow because the Lord is with you.
Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and I will forgive their sins and restore their land.
The lack of morality and having no relationship with God is what’s wrong with our society today. How do we fix it? We humble ourselves, pray, seek God, and turn from our wicked ways. If we do these things God will hear us, forgive us, and heal our land. To change the world, we must first change ourselves.
But as for you, be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded.
We all have times when we feel discouraged and we feel like giving up. If the Lord has put a “work” in your heart he will make a way for you to do it. That doesn’t mean it won’t be hard, because it might be, but that’s okay because God is on your side. Be strong and don’t give up!
