THE PRAYER OF KING JEHOSHAPHAT

Jehoshaphat's Prayer







2 Chronicles 20:1-22

 After this the Moabites and Ammonites, and with them some of the Meunites,[a] came against Jehoshaphat for battle.  Some men came and told Jehoshaphat, “A great multitude is coming against you from Edom,[b] from beyond the sea; and, behold, they are in Hazazon-tamar” (that is, Engedi).  

Then Jehoshaphat was afraid and set his face to seek the Lord, and proclaimed a fast throughout all Judah. And Judah assembled to seek help from the Lord; from all the cities of Judah they came to seek the Lord.
 And Jehoshaphat stood in the assembly of Judah and Jerusalem, in the house of the Lord, before the new court, and said,

This is how King Jehoshaphat prayed before GOD:-
  •  “O Lord, God of our fathers, are you not God in heaven? You rule over all the kingdoms of the nations. In your hand are power and might, so that none is able to withstand you.  Did you not, our God, drive out the inhabitants of this land before your people Israel, and give it forever to the descendants of Abraham your friend?  And they have lived in it and have built for you in it a sanctuary for your name, saying,  ‘If disaster comes upon us, the sword, judgment,[c] or pestilence, or famine, we will stand before this house and before you—for your name is in this house ( wherever you pray make sure GOD'S name is at that altar, house etc)—and cry out to you in our affliction, and you will hear and save.’  And now behold, the men of Ammon and Moab and Mount Seir, whom you would not let Israel invade when they came from the land of Egypt, and whom they avoided and did not destroy—  behold, they reward us by coming to drive us out of your possession, which you have given us to inherit.  O our God, will you not execute judgment on them? For we are powerless against this great horde that is coming against us. We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you.”


 Meanwhile all Judah stood before the Lord, with their little ones, their wives, and their children.  And the Spirit of the Lord came[d] upon Jahaziel the son of Zechariah, son of Benaiah, son of Jeiel, son of Mattaniah, a Levite of the sons of Asaph, in the midst of the assembly.  And he said,
when the SPIRIT OF GOD CAME UPON JAHAZIEL THIS IS WHAT HE SAID:-
 “Listen, all Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem and King Jehoshaphat: Thus says the Lord to you, ‘Do not be afraid and do not be dismayed at this great hordefor the battle is not yours but God's.( you have to know that the battles belongs to GOD. Let GOD take control of all your situation)  Tomorrow go down against them. Behold, they will come up by the ascent of Ziz. You will find them at the end of the valley, east of the wilderness of Jeruel.  You will not need to fight in this battle. Stand firm, hold your position, and see the salvation of the Lord on your behalf, O Judah and Jerusalem.’ Do not be afraid and do not be dismayed. Tomorrow go out against them, and the Lord will be with you.”

Remember this:- when GOD answers your prayers always remember to give HIM THANKS!

 Then Jehoshaphat bowed his head with his face to the ground, and all Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem fell down before the Lord, worshiping the Lord.  And the Levites, of the Kohathites and the Korahites, stood up to praise the Lord, the God of Israel, with a very loud voice.

 And they rose early in the morning and went out into the wilderness of Tekoa. And when they went out, Jehoshaphat stood and said, “Hear me, Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem! Believe in the Lord your God, and you will be established; ( when you trust and believe in the true GOD surely you will be established)believe his prophets, and you will succeed.” And when he had taken counsel with the people, he appointed those who were to sing to the Lord and praise him in holy attire, as they went before the army, and say,
“Give thanks to the Lord,
    for his steadfast love endures forever.”

And GOD FOUGHT FOR THEM:-
 And when they began to sing and praise, the Lord set an ambush against the men of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir, who had come against Judah, so that they were routed. For the men of Ammon and Moab rose against the inhabitants of Mount Seir, devoting them to destruction, and when they had made an end of the inhabitants of Seir, they all helped to destroy one another.
The WORD OF GOD says that KING JEHOSHAPHAT continued to rule and GOD established him.

DIVINE DESTINY

DIVINE DESTINY
Divine Destiny is where someone arrives/lives in the calling/purpose in which God has created you to be/do. (You will even say this is the reason why I was born). You will know if you have reached your divine destiny, when your heart is at peace and has full of joy and fulfillment in whatever you are doing. This is when others look at you and witness in their hearts that wow!! Something is happening to our friend or sister or brother.This is when the Holy Spirit births out something unique about you. And what ever you do is so successful not only in the eyes of God but also men. Good example is Moses when he lead the Israelite from Egypt to the promise land everyone around him knew he was divinely appointed and he is fulfilling God's calling/purpose (Divine Destiny) in his life.Your Destiny can be revealed in many ways. Some will save other people's lives. Some will start new things that nobody has ever started. Some will sing a solo that will inspire everybody. Some will be promoted in the highest positions possible. But all for God's GLORY AND PURPOSE, God wants you to do something for the benefit of his children and for HIS GLORY. Have you ever asked GOD why you are here, what is HIS purpose in your life? Now its the time to do so!
