The Numbers are Greater… But, Don’t Be Afraid!
While reading 2 Chronicles 20:1-35; talking about King Jehoshaphat I learned these things…
- When you don’t know what to do in the battle: Just like Jehoshaphat stated “Lord, we do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you.” (vs. 12)
- If you look at the numbers, and not the assignment you can become discouraged. Jesus said to him: “Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast number, for the battle is not yours” (vs. 15)
- Don’t allow yourself to FOLLOW or link up with the wrong crowd/people and get distracted by what is being said for you to do. If God said ONE thing… do that ONE thing regardless if anything else is being said. These alliances or clicks can lead to destruction and even kill you. (Spiritually and Mentally)
- Sometimes when you stumble or fall; don’t stay there Get back up and keep going. That’s what Jehoshaphat did. Repent and get back to where you was before… Telying on God, trusting in him and following him Wholeheartedly.
- No matter how long it takes… God will Bring you out of this battle Victoriously! Just like Jehoshaphat his life was half way over and God still moved in his life.
Lastly, God reminded you in vs.17 “You do not have to fight this battle; position yourselves stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord. He is with you, Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid or discouraged. Tomorrow, go out to face them, for the Lord is with you.” So everyday Get up and go face whatever battle you have, don’t be afraid for you SHALL win! God is on your side and he’s MORE than the world against you. 🙌🏾❤️
