Text: 2 Chronicles 20:1-5
Sometimes when it rains it pours, It seems like its never going to stop.. Well that is the way life’s problems can be one thing right after another or it seems a multitude of problems all come at one time.. When that happens it can be overwhelming for sure.. Well in this passage of scripture we see a great crisis that was coming to Jehoshaphat and the land of Judah . What was the crisis it was an invasion that was coming from the Moabites, Ammonites and some of the Meunites came to make war…. It was a great multitude coming against them… Listen that can be some overwhelming news for sure… So what did this cause the King of Judah and the land of Judah to do.. Well the bible tells us..
1- Jehoshaphat feared– This was not the spirit of fear that Paul talks about but this is a fear that will drive one to seek the Lord and in this case that is what happen.. Jehoshaphat set himself to seek the Lord… And that is ones answer today if your facing crisis, a storm, a battle that is overwhelming you then you need to set your self to seek the Lord… There is going to be times where you going to face battles and situations that do overwhelm you and I ask where will you turn… There is no help in the world. There comes time when the Dr. cannot do anything else, where all your resources are gone.. Today I am writing to remind you where your help cometh from.. Remember the words of the Psalmist
PSALMS 121:1 -8 (1) I WILL LIFT UP MY EYES UNTO THE HILLS FROM WHENCE COMES MY HELP (2) MY HELP COMES FROM THE LORD WHO MADE HEAVEN AND EARTH (3) HE WILL NOT SUFFER YOUR FOOT TO BE MOVED HE WHO KEEPS YOU WILL NOT SLUMBER (4) BEHOLD HE WHO KEEPS ISRAEL SHALL NEITHER SLUMBER OR SLEEP. (5) THE LORD IS YOUR KEEPER: THE LORD IS YOUR SHADE UPON YOUR RIGHT HAND. (6) THE SUN SHALL NOT SMITE YOU BY DAY NOR THE MOON BY NIGHT. (7) THE LORD SHALL PRESEVE YOU FROM ALL EVIL: HE SHALL PRESERVE YOUR SOUL . (8) THE LORD SHALL PRESERVE YOUR GOING OUT AND YOUR COMING IN FROM THIS TIME FORTH AND EVEN FOREVERMORE..
Jehoshaphat and Judah sought the Lord and they found the help of the Lord.. By the time they went to battle . God has sent ambushments against the invaders… By the way it happen as they were singing and praising… Here is the point they sought God and found him.. God fought the battle for them.. Listen today you may be overwhelmed by the storms and battles that you are facing, and I want to tell you to seek his face turn your problems over to God and trust him.. Listen he may not take your around them but he will take you through them.. He will give the victory… Put your problem in the hand of the master today, and commit it to him and stop worrying… Why because if God be for you then who are what can be against you…
