Journey With Jehoshaphat #3

2 Chronicles 20:4-7

Jehoshaphat now has to prepare his people for war.  The enemy is very close, only 76km by road today, (north along the shores of the Dead Sea and then west into Jerusalem,)  or approximately 50km as the crow flies.  This may seem far away, but is it really?  Much the same as Covid-19, it was a world away a few weeks ago and now we are in the midst of a nationwide shutdown.  What can we learn from Jehoshaphat and his people?

A Timely Response by God’s People to Pray                   verse 4

The people of God came together to seek help from the Lord

A Timely Review of God’s Great Attributes                    verses 5,6

LORD, God of our ancestors . . . the God of Heaven . . . power

            and might our in your hand, no one can with stand you .

A Timely Reminder of God’s Help in History                   verse 7

Our God, did you not drive out the inhabitants of this land

            before your people Israel and give it forever to the 

descendants of Abraham?        

Jehoshaphat may have been afraid because the enemy was so close, but he took his fear to the right place . . . to God;

Oh, what peace we often forfeit

Oh, what needless pain we bear

All because we do not carry

Everything to God in prayer

Don’t fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name; you are Mine.  Isaiah 43:1
