“Our God… we have no power to face this vast army that is attacking us. We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you. ”
Then the Spirit of the Lord… said: “Listen, King Jehoshaphat and all who live in Judah and Jerusalem! This is what the Lord says to you: ‘Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God’s…. You will not have to fight this battle. Take up your positions; stand firm and see the deliverance the Lord will give you…
Early in the morning… Jehoshaphat stood and said, “Listen to me, Judah and people of Jerusalem! Have faith in the Lord your God and you will be upheld… Jehoshaphat appointed men to sing to the Lord and to praise him for the splendor of his holiness… as they went out at the head of the army…saying:
“Give thanks to the Lord,
for his love endures forever.”
As they began to sing and praise, the Lord set ambushes against the men..who were invading Judah, and they were defeated.
~ 2 Chronicles 20: 12 – 22

O Lord, like Jehoshaphat, my eyes are on YOU…
His Sunday whisper to me… and maybe to you…
Take up your instrument, your words, to sing of My majesty! See what healing, deliverance and restoring redemption I will bring to defeat what comes against you…conquered there… in the midst of praise.
