Hosea 1:7 ” I will save them – not by bow, sword or battle, or by horses or horsemen, but by the Lord their God.”

It seems as if the entire world is in a battle.  It’s a new, very strange and different type of battle…for our enemy is invisible.  And because the enemy is unseen…we are filled with apprehension and fear. But we need to remember that just because COVID19 is unseen by the naked eye, doesn’t mean God can’t see it.  And it’s not by our might or power that this battle will be won, but by His Spirit says the Lord. (Zechariah 4:6)  So as the Lord told Jehoshaphat in II Chronicles 20:15…He exhorts you today, “Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army.  For the battle is not yours, but God’s.”

I Samuel 2:10 ” It is not by strength that one prevails; those who oppose the Lord will be shattered.”

Where does your source of strength come from today?  For many, it comes from themselves.  They’ll  proudly flex their biceps and proclaim how strong  they are.  But in reality, they’re not a match to cancer invading their body, or a stroke  robbing them of their mobility.  We arrogantly think we’re strong enough to withstand anything…yet we’re not powerful enough  to  stop our own death.   As Zechariah 4:6 tells us, “It’s not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit says the Lord.”  Our source of strength must come from the Lord and not from ourselves…for in the end our strength is nothing but a vapor before God.
