From Terrified To Well Supplied
Our God, will you not judge them? For we have no might against this great company that comes against us. We don't know what to do, but our eyes are on you. All Judah stood before Yahweh, with their little ones, their wives, and their children. Then Yahweh's Spirit came... 2 Chronicles 20:12-14 WEB
When a vast enemy army gathered together with the intention of sacking Judah, Jehoshaphat the king did not know what to do. They were heavily outnumbered and there seemed to be no way that they could stand against the three kingdoms that were coming to attack them. He turned to God in desperation, called a fast, and prayed: 'Lord, I don't know how we are going to survive this, but our eyes are on You!' Then it reads: 'Yahweh's Spirit came...'
The next day they went out to face the enemy and Jehoshaphat put the praise team out in front of the troops. He was all in and saw God as their only hope. They began to sing: 'Praise the LORD, For His mercy endures forever.'
When they began to sing and to praise, their enemies became confused and began to attack each other, wiping themselves out. Then Israel spent three days picking up all of the enemies possessions (2 Chronicles 20:25). So Jehoshaphat and his people went from being terrified, to well supplied over night. What looked like the end for them, turned into an incredible blessing instead.
When faced with an impossible circumstance, do not forget your most important weapon: Prayer and fasting. When you do not know what to do, turn to the One that does. The Lord loves you, He cares for you, and if you ask Him, He will help you. We often have not because we ask not (James 4:2). Believe in the LORD your God, and you shall be established; believe His prophets, and you shall prosper' (2 Chronicles 20:20).Prayer: Heavenly Father I thank You for hearing me when I pray to You. My eyes are on You Lord and I don't know how all of this is going to work out, but I choose to trust in You. Please send Your Spirit to me and be a part of my life today, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.
