Jehoshaphat does three things when he receives news of a new military threat as pointed out in 2 Chronicles 20:1-13. He first inquired of the Lord and then proclaimed a fast for all Judah (v. 3). The third thing he did was stand before the people to pray for safety and help against the new threats.
King Jehoshaphat saw the current crisis as a faith building opportunity. Rather than let fear take over, he turned a negative into a positive by seeking God and praying for solutions.
This day with God, I admit that I’m powerless to face certain situations. I don’t know what to do at times but my eyes are upon the Lord and I have faith that He is big enough to get me through any crisis faced in life.
