2 Kings 7:6 NKJV

For the Lord had caused the army of the Syrians to hear the noise of chariots and the noise of horses—the noise of a great army; so they said to one another, “Look, the king of Israel has hired against us the kings of the Hittites and the kings of the Egyptians to attack us!”

This is taken from the account where the Lord turned the negative circumstances of Israel around in one day. They were suffering from starvation and God chased their enemies away, making them leave behind sufficient food to end the crisis His people were going through. He accomplished this by making the Syrians hear the sound of chariots and horses of a great army when it was actually just 4 lepers headed in their direction. The Syrians thought Israel had hired other kings to attack them. The principle of kings getting into partnership with other kings was common. We even see the same principle being used today as nations form coalitions to go to war. It is a principle we must use as kings of the Kingdom. We are not meant to fight alone. There are other kings in our land who could help us win our battles. So we should call on one another to join with us in the spiritual battles we face. Two are better than one. (See Ecclesiastes 4:9-12.) Let us use this principle and never allow our pride or ego to make us fight alone.
