“Tomorrow go down to them. Behold, they will come up by the Ascent of Ziz, and you will find them at the end of the ravine before the Wilderness of Jeruel. You shall not need to fight in this battle; take your position, stand still, and see the deliverance of the Lord (Who is) with you, O Judah and Jerusalem. Fear not nor be dismayed….’ 2 Chronicles 20:16-17
Second Chronicles 20:16-17 tells the people of Judah what position to take for the battle. Position, very significant in a battle, determines victory or surrender.
I always thought their position-and ours-was to stand still. Although that is true, another position was equally important to them. After receiving this instruction from the Lord, Jehoshaphat bowed on his knees with his face to the ground and worshipped. Wow! Worship was their actual position. Because this assurance of victory is evoked as elsewhere by faith in God.
When we take the right position in our life according to God’s will victory is guaranteed. In other words, when we have undisputed faith in God we are always victorious.
What is the right position to be victorious in life?
We always look for short cuts or cure to all pills in life, right? We don’t like to hear more doctrines or sermons because we have had enough of them already, ‘we just want to know what works’.
Is life a mathematical formula? Is there one sure success way in life? The answer is YES and NO.
NO, if you are looking for a one word answer.
YES, if you are taking the right position with God.
How you position yourself with Jesus is the secret of life!
You will be victorious every day in your life when you take the right position with Jesus Christ!!
God, you are the only one to bring ultimate victory in my life. Enable me to understand Your position in my life and help me to lead my life in Your way.by
