The battle is not yours, it belongs to the Lord.
Just trust in him and let him have his way.
He will not lead, where his grace cannot keep.
I know the battle is his, but the victory is mine.

2 Chronicles 20:15

And he said, Hearken ye, all Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem, and thou king Jehoshaphat, Thus saith the LORD unto you, Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God’s. -KJV

For the battle is not yours, but God’s – God will not employ you in the discomfiture of this great host; he himself will take the matter in hand, deliver you, and destroy them. – Clarke Commentary

“Be not afraid; you have admitted fear enough to bring you to God, do not now admit that which will drive you to God, do not now admit that which will drive you from him again. The battle is not yours; it is not in your own strength, not for your own cause, that you engage; the battle is God’s: he does and will, as you have desired, interest himself in the cause.” – Henry Commentary
