The Power of Position

Fighting the battle, is it ours? 
Far to often we look at battles and think it is our responsibility to fight it. We give it ALL we have and hope for the best, most of the time failing, or barely coming out victorious. 
There is a reason for this, the battle is NOT ours, its Gods!!  
God does not want us to fight the battles, He wants us, by faith, to position ourselves for battle but then allow Him to come in. 
Gideon and the hundred men with him reached the edge of the camp at the beginning of the middle watch, just after they had changed the guard. They blew their trumpets and broke the jars that were in their hands. The three companies blew the trumpets and smashed the jars. Grasping the torches in their left hands and holding in their right hands the trumpets they were to blow, they shouted, “A sword for the Lord and for Gideon!” While each man held his position around the camp, all the Midianites ran, crying out as they fled. When the three hundred trumpets sounded, the Lord caused the men throughout the camp to turn on each other with their swords. The army fled to Beth Shittah toward Zererah as far as the border of Abel Meholah near Tabbath. “ – Judges 7:19-22 
The nation of Israel was afraid of death. The army they were about to face was much larger than them. But as long as they followed God, this would not happen! 
Verse 21 tells us “While each man held his position around the camp, all the Midianites ran, crying out as they fled. When the three hundred trumpets sounded, the Lord caused the men throughout the camp to turn on each other with their swords.” 
All they had to do was blow the triumphs and the army fled. 
God asked them to sacrifice their lives, their comfort, and to position themselves in a place where He could win the victory for them! 
 A lot of the time God does not want us to engage in the battle either. He wants us to position ourselves, then watch and see what He can do. 
What He is asking you to step out in today? What battle are you facing that God wants you to step out of your comfort and position yourself for? 
Do it, and see Him win the victory!
