Go forth to battle

This morning I read in the Book of Mormon about the people of Zeniff when they were attacked by the Lamanites:

Yea, in the strength of the Lord did we go forth to battle against the Lamanites; for I and my people did cry mightily to the Lord that he would deliver us out of the hands of our enemies, for we were awakened to a remembrance of the deliverance of our fathers. (Mosiah 9:17)

I heard HWN today while pondering applications of this verse. I have never “gone forth to battle” against anyone or anything literally, but I regularly go into situations with an uncertain outcome. I know I have sometimes gone into these situations “in the strength of the Lord,” due to prayer and faith. And I’m grateful that I can do that in the future too :)
