Are you facing a battle today? Try going into it this way!
“Then King Jehoshaphat bowed low with his face to the ground. And all the people of Judah and Jerusalem did the same, worshiping the LORD. Then the Levites from the clans of Kohath and Korah stood to praise the LORD, the God of Israel, with a very loud shout. After consulting the people, the king appointed singers to walk ahead of the army, singing to the LORD and praising him for his holy splendor. This is what they sang: “Give thanks to the LORD; his faithful love endures forever!”” 2 Chronicles 20:18, 19, 21 NLT
LORD, show me who to consult about my challenges. Guide me to people who will show me Your ways. Help me to identify prayer warriors who will stand with me prayerfully and with bold faith that bolsters my own faith. I want to walk towards victory with a spirit of thankfulness, courage and confidence that compels others to notice YOU (not me) — people who want to join me in a relationship with you both in “war” time and peace time. Thank you, Jesus, for what King Jehoshaphat teaches me about how to face challenge within a community that loves You. AMEN
