2 Chronicles 20:15b
…the LORD says to you: ‘DO NOT BE AFRAID or DISCOURAGED because of this vast army. For the BATTLE IS NOT Yours, but God’s.
I started my day today reading 2 chronicles 20:11-12. His people find themselves in a terrible place facing death, peril, and destruction
2 Chronicles 20:11-12
See how they are repaying us by coming to drive us out of the possession you gave us as an inheritance. Our God, will you not judge them? For we have no power to face this vast army that is attacking us.
May we declare to you Lord as your people, like those before us, that were called by your Great name, like the men of Judah and their families in 2 chronicles 20:13 we stand before you and say:
We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you.
We stand before you—
All the men of Judah, with their wives and children and little ones, stood there before the LORD. Then the Spirit of the LORD came on Jahaziel son of Zechariah, the son of Benaiah, the son of Jeiel, the son of Mattaniah, a Levite and descendant of Asaph, as he stood in the assembly. He said: “LISTEN, King Jehoshaphat and all who live in Judah and Jerusalem! This is what the LORD says to you: ‘DO NOT BE AFRAID or DISCOURAGED because of this vast army. For the BATTLE IS NOT Yours, but God’s. TOMORROW MARCH down against them. They will be climbing up by the Pass of Ziz, and You WILL FIND them at the end of the gorge in the Desert of Jeruel.
We receive what you told the tribe of Judah
We respond in HUMBLE adoration
RIGHTEOUSNESS and STRENGTH received by the blood of the Lamb
We praise you for your goodness in the the land of the living
A we find ourselves in this global battle
We take up our POSITIONS as your Sons and daughters
By FAITH we STAND FIRM
We DECLARE WE WILL SEE the DELIVERANCE of Lord
We PRAISE You for BOLDNESS, POWER, PEACE and SOUND MIND
We are NOT afraid
We are NOT discouraged
We MARCH FORWARD by FAITH
We are at the end of a gorge trapped in a desert
We praise you that we WILL SEE our DELIVERANCE
Just like Your WORD says we CLING to this HOPE, HOPE SEEN in this portion of scripture, this HOPE SEEN over and over in your word, HOPE experienced in our past, HOPE given freely by your Son’s death on the cross, that POWERFUL NAME, Jesus Christ. And 2 Chronicles 20:17-18 finishes like this:
You WILL NOT HAVE to FIGHT this BATTLE.
Take up your POSITIONS;
STAND FIRM and
SEE the DELIVERANCE the LORD WILL GIVE You, Judah and Jerusalem.
DO NOT BE AFRAID;
DO NOT BE DISCOURAGED.
Go out to face them TOMORROW,
and the LORD WILL BE WITH you.’”
Jehoshaphat BOWED DOWN with his face to the ground, and all the people of Judah and Jerusalem fell down in WORSHIP before the LORD.
SO TODAY LORD We praise You
We do not have to fight this battle alone
You FIGHT for US
We face today WITHOUT fear
We STAND FIRM today
WE DECLARE your POWER, PEACE, and VICTORY for our future
We humble ourselves
Fall at your feet and WORSHIP You
THANK Your for your GRACE and MERCY
