Commentary from Pastor Michael White:
Then he said, “If the Syrians are too strong for me, then you shall help me; but if the people of Ammon are too strong for you, then I will help you. 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.” – 1 Chron 19:12-13

Israel was outnumbered! They were surrounded on every side! But Joab was not afraid, because he knew he was not alone.

Joab had an amazing gift: his brother, Abishai. If the Syrians started to overpower Joab and his army, Abishai would come and help; and if the Ammonites were too strong for Abishai, Joab would come and help! No matter what happened, these two brothers had each others’ backs. Neither would let the other fall.

I pray God would surround you with brothers and sisters like that. I pray that whenever the enemy has you surrounded, God would send people into your life to help fight! Thank God we don’t have to fight alone!

Prayer:

Father, thank You that I don’t have to fight alone! Thank You for giving me brothers and sisters who will stand by my side and contend for victory, in Jesus’ name. I will fight fearlessly, because You have already given me the victory!
