More than forty-four thousand capable warriors, all skilled in combat and armed with shields, swords and bows, fought against their enemies. They cried out to God during the battle and he answered their prayer because they trusted in him (from 1 Chronicles 5:18-20).
God is completely in charge, but what we do matters.*
