As we continue to journey through the Advent season, it is essential to remember that our faith and gratitude to our Mighty God can lead us through the battles we face. In 2 Chronicles 20:21-24, we find a powerful example of King Jehoshaphat and the people of Judah showing their faith and gratitude to God in the midst of a daunting battle.
Responding in Faith and Gratitude
When faced with a vast army, King Jehoshaphat did not rely on his own strength or military strategies. Instead, he turned to the Lord, proclaiming, “The Lord fights for you” (2 Chronicles 20:17). The people of Judah responded with faith and gratitude, bowing down and worshiping the Lord.
As they went into battle, Jehoshaphat appointed singers to go before the army, praising God, saying, “Give thanks to the Lord; his faithful love endures forever!” (2 Chronicles 20:21). As they sang and praised, the Lord set ambushes against their enemies, causing confusion and defeat.
The Lord Fights for You
This story reminds us that instead of trying to solve our problems on our own, we can trust our Mighty God as we face our enemies. The Lord fights for you, so you can show your faith and gratitude by acknowledging his power and goodness in your life. Just as the people of Judah thanked God for their deliverance and watched in gratitude as he fought on their behalf, we too can trust in his faithfulness and provision.
Trust in Him, and He Will Deliver You
During this Advent season, let us reflect on the battles we face, both big and small. Knowing that the Lord fights for you, how can you show your faith and gratitude to our Mighty God in these situations? Let us remember that the Lord fights for us, and as we trust in him, he will deliver us.
Knowing the Lord fights for you, how can you demonstrate faith and gratitude to our Mighty God in the battles you face today?
