Scripture: 2Chronicles (NIV) 20:29 The fear of God came on all the surrounding kingdoms when they heard how the LORD had fought against the enemies of Israel.
30 And the kingdom of Jehoshaphat was at peace, for his God had given him rest on every side
Observation: Israel’s enemies had a problem. If they were going to defeat Israel, they would have to defeat Israel’s God. Israel’s God was not made out of wood and stone like their gods. He did not have to be carried around like their gods. Israel’s God fought for Israel. They could not attack Israel because they could not defeat Israel’s God. Israel had peace.
Application: It is good for people to hear about what God is doing in my life. It can be a testimony to help them to trust God for what He can do in their lives. It is good for me when people hear what God is doing in my life. Some will rejoice with me and be willing to help. Others will see that hindering me is really working against what God is doing.
Prayer: Lord, I desire that Your Presence and works are easily recognized in my life. Amen
Making friends for time and eternity!
