An Army of None!

Sometimes to get to "peace" you have to stop waging the war or engaging in battle.  Remember not every fight is your fight.  This is where I am right now.  I needed reminding yesterday.  

For those of you certain that you are in battle;  in your job, your marriage, maybe a family issue, maybe with your teen - maybe, instead, it's time to read this.  

Pray the words in bold. As the scripture says, set yourselves. Stop fighting.  It's His battle to fight for you.

2nd Chronicles, Kwikscan Read.

Chapter 20, verse 15
And he said, Hearken ye, all Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem, and thou king Jehoshaphat, Thus saith the Lord unto you, Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God's.

Chapter 20, verse 17
Ye shall not need to fight in this battle: set yourselves, stand ye still, and see the salvation of the Lord with you, Oh Judah and Jerusalem: fear not, nor be dismayed; tomorrow go out against them: for the Lord will be with you.

Here's to an army of none, they aren't needed. 


  1. Great post and beautiful pictures. For me, it is sometimes hard to get the right balance here . . . so my part, being emotionally honest, being a mature a adult etc and God's part EVERYTHING ELSE. Thanks for the reminder.


  2. Amazing! I desperately needed to hear these words today! That's how God works. And I just read in Deuteronomy where Moses told the Israelites not to worry that God would go ahead of them. But I needed this post to put it in perspective in my world. Being in ministry, it is so easy to get discouraged. I feel like I have the Red Sea in front of me and Pharaoh behind me, but I need to let God fight the battle. Thanks SO much for this inspiring post :-)

  3. Thanks for the reminder!
    Enjoy the journey,
    IN HIM,

  4. Wonderful post, Sheri! Being older than you, I'm happy to say that I've mostly gotten to the point where I can let go and just put my faith in God's perfect plan for my life. I was unemployed for 9 months last year, but never worried; just kept looking, applying and interviewing, knowing that He had a plan and I could just rejoice knowing that He had my back, as it were. No fear; only abundant, pure, radiant Divine Love.

  5. You are so good at giving me a dose of the truth. Thanks for keeping your heart in the word and pouring it back out! {And I love your fall pictures!}
