2 Samuel 10:12
Be of good courage, and let us be strong for our people and for the cities of our God. And may the Lord do what is good in His sight.”
The Ammonites perceived king David as a threat to them & called in Syrians to help them fight the Israelites. Joab, David’s commander of the army encouraged his brother Abishai & the army to be strong & of good courage given the great multitudes of auxiliary mercenaries they were fighting. In other words; Joab told his army to have faith in God for the battle belongs to Him. So, Joab pursued the Syrians while Abishai attacked the Ammonites & both enemies fled from the Israelites granting them victory.
-Following Joab’s example of faith in God, the disciples asked Jesus to increase their faith (Luke 17:5). In the same wavelength, we should ask God to increase our faith at the wake of challenges & tribulations for He is always faithful to help us. Without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him (Heb 11:6).
Increase our faith, Father that we may diligently seek You. Take control of our lives & help us in all our challenges & tribulations that we may be victorious in all we do. May Your peace that surpasses all understanding dwell in our hearts, families & nation always. Amen
