2 Peter 1:3 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence.

2 Timothy 1:7 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.

Hebrews 7:16 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

Jesus became a priest, not by meeting the physical requirement of belonging to the tribe of Levi, but by the power of a life that cannot be destroyed.

It's only because of GOD's Divine Power that we are victorious and have no fear. It's all GOD's Divine efforts in our lives, no more of us.

B. Jeroboam defeated by Yahweh

"and finally the Lord struck him down and he died."

1 Samuel 17:47 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

And everyone assembled here will know that the Lord rescues his people, but not with sword and spear. This is the Lord’s battle, and he will give you to us!”

2 Chronicles 20:15 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

He said, “Listen, all you people of Judah and Jerusalem! Listen, King Jehoshaphat! This is what the Lord says: Do not be afraid! Don’t be discouraged by this mighty army, for the battle is not yours, but God’s.

2 Chronicles 13:12 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

So you see, God is with us. He is our leader. His priests blow their trumpets and lead us into battle against you. O people of Israel, do not fight against the Lord, the God of your ancestors, for you will not succeed!”

400,000 soldiers versus 800,000 soldiers and the latter was defeated by the LORD GOD. This will always happen if we only let GOD fight the battles for us.

IX. CONCLUSION:

GOD fights His battles on our behalf.
