When we think of the great generals and leaders of armies throughout history we think of how often Hollywood has depicted them.
Normally older men who talk battle strategy with their other generals. Then they devise a battle plan which will be communicated with the troops. The generals will then watch from afar and not actually be the ones doing the fighting.
There is a word that is used many times throughout the Bible to describe God, this word is Jehovah Sabaoth. Jehovah Sabaoth can be translated as meaning the Lord of Hosts, the Lord of Heavens Armies. This means that God is the general in charge of a whole host of armies. One day only heaven will tell how large the armies of heaven actually are, but my guess is that they are bigger than any scene out of Lord of the Rings can muster.
The difference between Jehovah Sabaoth and the leader of earths armies though is that while both have a plan, and both say the word and their armies follow them; only Jehovah Sabaoth will actually lead His army out into battle. God doesn’t sit on a hill in the distance watching the battle, no Jehovah Sabaoth is on the front lines fighting for you.
I don’t know what battle you are facing today, but I do know that when you pray the armies of heaven are mobilized to fight for you. As you lift up that prayer unto God, Jehovah Sabaoth places himself on the front line with a strategy and plan and will fight for you!
The Bible tells us that the battle is the Lords. So as you pray, rest assured that the battle is being won in your favor!
