    The God who made the world and all things in it, he, being Lord of heaven and earth, doesn't dwell in temples made with hands, neither is he served by men's hands, as though he needed anything, seeing he himself gives to all life and breath, and all things. Acts 17:24 WEBWhen I was growing up, we us...

    RHM Devotional: Heroes and Monsters from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about the potential of being a Hero, or a Monster, that exists inside each one of us.

Battlefield Tactics

  • It happened, when the captains of the chariots saw Jehoshaphat, that they said, It is the king of Israel. Therefore they turned about to fight against him: but Jehoshaphat cried out, and Yahweh helped him; and God moved them to depart from him. It happened, when the captains of the chariots saw that it was not the king of Israel, that they turned back from pursuing him. 2 Chronicles 18:31 WEB

    Jehoshaphat, the king of Judah went into battle and soon got into trouble when a whole group of chariot commanders began to chase him, thinking that he was someone else. When he cried out, the Lord helped him and drew the enemy away from him.

    If Jehoshaphat had not cried out to God, it is hard to say what would have happened. It is quite possible that he would have died on the battlefield. When the enemy turned to attack him, that was all the encouragement that he needed to ask God for help. It does not record what he said but it probably included: 'God help me!'

    Sometimes we view asking for prayer as a weakness and we put it off as long as possible. We quietly hide what is going on in our life, often because of pride. Jehoshaphat left his pride on the battlefield when he saw real trouble coming his way. His battlefield tactics were to cry out to God in prayer.

    We are all in a battle, and our real strength and protection is not our own, but comes from God Almighty. Do not wait until you are beaten down and weak to start asking God for help. When the attack begins, call for backup immediately.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I thank You for hearing my cry for help. Protect me and my family today Lord, draw our hearts closer to You and fulfill Your perfect will in our life, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

Hum great story Mr!!!  So many are Faithless non believrs because of the many out-there stories of the Bible!! So many have certain ones too debunch God!! It can make it tough too stand true!! I recall through the many years-very hurt mentally from My tour over seas! I would seriously think prayer before and after I acually prayed, be be sure My prayer was getting through! Yes!! Amazing when you've been His child, it gets foggy very uncertain, thats the time to truely dig in!!  Never for get looking behind Me up--seeing a Stewardness squating in the isle crying!!! We were doing a nose dive through a Tropical storm, into Viet-Nam!! I looked out the window, cloudes wizing by, lightning thunder, I said Lord God if your truely real, we need you now!!! The jet started righting it self up! Relief!!! Ya know the first thins I saw? Thatched roof huts, and swiming pools!! I knew the latter was 500 lb bomb holes! I knew we were there!!! Amen!!!! The term God is good-all the time!! What else would he be, part time, don't think so!! May we all have a very Blessed day!!!

Amen! Everyday I begin with prayer asking for His help for me and my loved ones, for I do not know what troubles the day may bring our way. I do know that if I ask for His help from the start, that He always makes a way to get through whatever comes our way.

Amen!  Prayer is the most Powerful thing you can do and when you pray, Our Father listens to what we have to say and even if we cannot find the right words, he completely understands, that is just the best blessing ever.  Thank you Lord for the times I just can't put what I want to say in the right way but you know what I need and you speak to my heart!
