2 Chronicles 20:2 – 4(NASB)

2. Then some came and reported to Jehoshaphat, saying, “A great multitude is coming against you from beyond the sea, out of Aram and behold, they are in Hazazon-tamar (that is Engedi).”

3. Jehoshaphat was afraid and turned his attention to seek the Lord, and proclaimed a fast throughout all Judah.

4. So Judah gathered together to seek help from the Lord; they even came from all the cities of Judah to seek the Lord.

Sometimes circumstances in life are so difficult that it seems like an army is coming against you. And though you might come up with your own schemes and plans, nothing you do fixes the problem. Finally, in desperation and anxiety, you cry out to the Lord.

Crying out to the Lord as a last resort is a lot different than "seeking the Lord" from the start (as Jehoshaphat did). God honored Jehoshaphat's prayer and then Jehoshaphat honored the Lord by singing praises to God before the battle even began.

Many times, we wonder what is really going on and why the Lord is allowing this to happen? But, all the Lord wants is for you to include Him. Circumstances can be hard but His answers to your prayers are not.

Beloved, start your day by seeking God first! See how blessed your day can be!

That’s something to praise Him for, in advance!!!

God bless you is my prayer!!!
