In 2 CHRON. 20, King Jehosaphat of Judah was surrounded on all sides by enemies and He began to seek the LORD! In verse 12, he prayed, “O our God, will you not judge them? For we have no power against this great multitude that is coming against us: nor do we know what to do, BUT OUR EYES ARE UPON YOU.” He then gathered the singer’s and the musicians with all the people and the word of the Lord came to him: verse 15 & 17- ‘Do not be afraid nor dismayed because of this great multitude, for THE BATTLE IS NOT YOURS BUT GOD’S…’You will not need to fight in this battle! Set (position) yourselves, stand still and see the salvation of the LORD, who is with you, O Judah and Jerusalem!’ DO NOT FEAR OR BE DISMAYED: TOMORROW GO OUT AGAINST THEM, FOR THE LORD IS WITH YOU.”

The Lord gave me this word at the end of last month at our annual apostolic campaign meeting. I felt to share this now with all that has happened, that even though we are surrounded on all sides by a flood of waters, God rides upon the flood and He is with us! He says “Set yourselves, be in alignment with Me and keep your eyes on Me and I will bring you through the waters and the rivers!!” DO NOT FEAR!! There’s a lot of fear, fear of the unknown and of the elements but the Father has good plans for us, plans to prosper us and not destroy us! We simply must trust Him and commit our ways and thoughts to Him, and He will bring us through. Many are facing huge challenges right now, but He has better plans for all of us!! Just as in the natural, we have much rebuilding to do, so in the Spiritual! We are in the times of RESTORATION AND A GREAT REFORMATION!! THE REALIGNING, RECOVERING AND RESTRUCTURING HAS BEGUN…

We know according to Jere 29:11, He has given us a FUTURE AND A HOPE!! Then, in verses 18-20- Jehoshaphat bowed his head with has face to the ground and all of the people bowed before the LORD, worshiping the LORD. Then they stood up to praise the LORD GOD OF ISRAEL WITH VOICES LOUD AND HIGH. Then, the powerful word in 20:20 word as they went out to meet the enemy: BELIEVE IN THE LORD YOUR GOD, AND YOU SHALL BE ESTABLISHED; BELIEVE HIS PROPHETS, AND YOU SHALL PROSPER.” What a powerful word and of course, as they began to sing and praise, the LORD set ambushes against those who came against Judah, and they were defeated. Let us go forth being thankful, praising and worshiping the LORD, FOR THE FATHER IS “SENDING JUDAH FIRST”, THE WORSHIPING WARRIORS!!  LET THE WORSHIPERS ARISE…

Blessings, JB.
