Today’s thought — The Lord will be with you.

Good Morning,

I’m pondering two of my favorite chapters in the Bible showing the power of God.

2 Chronicles 20 tells of King Jehoshaphat calling upon God for help in the battle, his people were facing. He reminds God of God’s power. He acknowledges that he doesn’t know what to do, but that his eyes are upon God.
God reassures Jehoshaphat and the people telling them that the battle is His and exposing the enemy’s hiding place. As the people praise God “Praise God for His mercy endureth forever.” God causes havoc and complete defeat. The people gather the spoils from a a battle they didn’t fight.

2Ch 20:15 And he said, Hearken ye, all Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem, and thou king Jehoshaphat, Thus saith the LORD unto you, Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God’s. To morrow go ye down against them: behold, they come up by the cliff of Ziz; and ye shall find them at the end of the brook, before the wilderness of Jeruel. Ye shall not need to fight in this battle: set yourselves, stand ye still, and see the salvation of the LORD with you, O Judah and Jerusalem: fear not, nor be dismayed; to morrow go out against them: for the LORD will be with you

Mark 9:14-29 tells of the man who brought his son to the disciples for healing. They were unable to help the man and his child.

v. 22-24 And ofttimes it hath cast him into the fire, and into the waters, to destroy him: but if thou canst do any thing, have compassion on us, and help us. Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth. And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.

In the Amplified Bible v 23-24 are phrased like this: “And Jesus said, [You say to Me], If You can do anything? [Why,] all things can be (are possible) to him who believes! At once the father of the boy gave [an eager, piercing, inarticulate] cry with tears, and he said, Lord, I believe! [Constantly] help my weakness of faith!”

How often I have felt as these; not knowing what to do and needing encouragement to keep believing.

Whatever situation you are facing this day; don’t give up on God. Keep your eyes on Him! Trust in His perfect plan!

Trust God for your day . . Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
