SUNDAY 30TH OCT.,2016
TOPIC: WORRY OR WORSHIP?
TEXT: 2 Chronicles 20:12 “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….”
The enemy would love to get you worrying instead of worshiping God. When the devil brings you thoughts of worry, anxiety and fear, let them be a reminder to thank God that His answer is on the way.
Say, “Devil, thank you for reminding me,” and then say, “Father, I thank You that You are at work on my behalf.” That’s what King Jehoshaphat did. The people of Judah were surrounded by three major armies. It didn’t look like they had a chance. This godly king was probably bombarded with thoughts of fear and anxiety but, he gathered the people together, lifted his eyes toward heaven, and prayed the simple prayer in today’s verse. Jehoshaphat’s prayer was answered. God told the people to march right in to the enemy’s camp, singing and
shouting praises on their way.
Notice, they weren’t worrying — they were worshiping — and God delivered them. Do you need a victory in your life? Then learn to worship instead of worry!
