Engage in Worship
Bible Text: 2 Chronicles 20 | Preacher: Pastor Steve | Series: Engage: Do All In The Name Of The Lord Jesus
2 Chronicles 20:1-30
Worship Is Vital For The Peace Of Our Soul
Worship Is An Essential Tool In Defeating The Enemies Of God
Moabites, Ammonites And Those Of Mount Seir
Three Nations Coming Against Israel
A great multitude is coming against you…
In other words: it is over, there will be no tomorrow!
The Reaction And Response:
Seek the Lord…
Proclaim a fast…
What Makes The Difference Is What We Do In The Face Of Fear
Fear In The Face Of Sudden Crisis Does Not Disqualify Us As A Person Of Faith Or As A Person Of Strength
We Learn From Jehoshaphat That When We Face Overwhelming Evil And Powerful Spiritual Forces:
The battle is the Lord’s
Stand still and see the salvation of the Lord
Be patient and watch the Lord move
Nothing Comes Against Us That God Is Not Able To Affect
2 Chronicles 20:18-19 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.
2 Chronicles 20:20 Early the next morning the army of Judah went out into the wilderness of Tekoa. On the way Jehoshaphat stopped and said, Listen to me, all you people of Judah and Jerusalem! Believe in the Lord your God, and you will be able to stand firm. Believe in his prophets, and you will succeed.
2 Chronicles 20:21 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!
The Kingdom Of God Must Advance Within Our Souls As Much As It Needs To Advance Upon Planet Earth:
Nothing advances in God’s Kingdom without worship
Nothing defeats the powers of darkness, of evil like worship
Nothing will accomplish as much of God’s purposes in us and through us as will our worship
In The Battles We Can Respond As Jehosaphat:
Seek God first and trust in Him
Remembering God’s faithfulness will help our faith grow
Worship and His Word will reinforce your faith
The Lord will win the battle for us! And it will be won through worship!
