"The horse is made ready for the day of battle, but
victory rests with the Lord." (NIV)
"The horse is prepared against the day of battle: but
safety is of the LORD." (KJV)
It is right for us to do all we can to resist and defeat
the enemy. The Lord commands us to be prepared,
alert, and ready. But we are only successful in
defeating the enemy through the mighty power of
God with us. After all, the battle is His.
Heavenly Father, please help us to be ready and
prepared to face the trials and attacks that will
surely occur in this life. Help us to always be
aware that the battle is yours, and we cannot
be victorious without you going before us.
We pray in Jesus name. Amen.
