He said, “Listen, all you people of Judah and Jerusalem! Listen, King Jehoshaphat! This is what the Lord says: Do not be afraid! Don’t be discouraged by this mighty army, for the battle is not yours, but God’s.”
2 Chronicles 20:15 NLT
King Jehoshaphat is facing a formidable army. He is outmanned, and loss seems inevitable. But Jehoshaphat goes to the Lord and gets direction for a unique battle plan. Instead of a traditional battle plan of sending out your best warriors to fight the enemy, God instructs them to start with the singers. Have the singers begin with praise and worship.
Once the people begin to sing and worship God, something unexpected happens. God steps in and confuses the enemy, and they begin to fight each other.
I believe there are principles here that we can learn:
1. God always has a plan for our victory.
2. God’s plan may seem ridiculous in the natural.
3. God’s plan depends on our obedience.
God has a plan for your victory. That plan demands your participation. It all begins when we choose to seek God with all our heart.
Holy Spirit, please show me the plan of God. Help me to understand Your plan and partner with you in the victory You have prepared.
