JEHOSHAPHAT BEGGED FOR HELP FROM THE LORD
2 Chronicles 20:1-13 Tuesday, July 29
Key Verse: 20:12

First, a vast army against Jehoshaphat (1-2). Later on, the Moabites and Ammonites with some of the Meunites declared war against Judah. Word reached Jehoshaphat, "a vast army is already in Hazezon-Tamar," a day's travel time! It was God's punishment against Jehoshaphat's sin to make an alliance with Ahab (19:2) What should he do?

Second, Jehoshaphat fasted and prayed (3-13).

Alarmed, yet Jehoshaphat resolved to inquire of the Lord through fasting with all the people: men, women and children. Jehoshaphat stood up and prayed praising the Lord as the Ruler over all the kingdoms. He remembered the history of God's giving the land to the descendants of Abraham forever. He prayed believing God's promises that he would hear and save when they pray in time of calamities before the temple. Now he admitted his powerlessness and helplessness not knowing what to do. But his eyes were fixed on the Lord for his salvation.

Prayer: Lord, calamities come always. Help me to use the disastrous moments to come to you and totally trust in you.

One Word: Fix your eyes on the Lord in time of calamity
