We do not know what to do

Today’s Encouragement is 2 Chronicles 20:12 NLT O our God, won’t you stop them? We are powerless against this mighty army that is about to attack us. We do not know what to do, but we are looking to you for help.”

We do not know what to do-

Jehoshaphat was a good king of Judah, and the Lord was with him.  When they were attacked by a huge army of Moab and Ammon. They recognized the disaster facing them, so all of Judah gathered, fasted, and prayed. King Jehoshaphat led the nation in praying and closed his prayer with these words…We do not know what to do, but we are looking to you for help.

The rest of the story? 2 Chronicles 20:21-22 NLT After consulting the people, the king appointed singers to walk ahead of the army, singing to the LORD and praising him for his holy splendor. This is what they sang: “Give thanks to the LORD; his faithful love endures forever!” [22] At the very moment they began to sing and give praise, the LORD caused the armies of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir to start fighting among themselves.

As Judah began to praise God, after praying and seeking His help… the mighty enemy force was completely destroyed from within!  God had told Judah, in verse 17 NLT “But you will not even need to fight. Take your positions; then stand still and watch the LORD’s victory. He is with you, O people of Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid or discouraged. Go out against them tomorrow, for the LORD is with you!”

My friends, whatever we are facing, whatever enemy – physical, emotional, or spiritual … nothing is greater than our God!  When you don’t know what to do – Pray, fast, seek Him and then Praise Him…Thank Him for all His Love and Care… and you will see His Powerful Hand come to deliver you!

Pray every day
