TEXT: 2 COR. 20: 15, 20
Man’s problems are diverse, the greatest problem that has faced man since his creation is the problem of complete trust and believe in God, despite all the promises God had made to those who will trust and obey Him. The children of Israel suffered untold hardship because of their distrust in God. Sometimes God would send enemies to go and fight them, and make many of them captives in strange lands, even in their own land, Sometimes famine and pestilence. God had made so many promises, unfailing promises to those who would trust and believe in His mighty powers.
- The Salvation
- Saints feet protected
- Saints established
The children of Moab, Amon and environs encamped Judah and Jerusalem and to war with the king of Judah, Jehoshaphat but the salvation of God came to Jehoshaphat and the people.
2 Chron. 20: 15 – And He said, hearken ye, all Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem, and thou of this multitude, for the battle is not yours, but God’s.
Verse 20 – JEHOSHAPHAT’S CHARGE TO THE PEOPLE. And they rose early in the morning and went forth into the wilderness Jekoah; and as they went forth, Jehoshaphat stood and said, hear me o Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem. Believe in the Lord your God, so shall ye be established, believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper (spiritual prosperity)
- Saints feet protected: He brought up also out of an horrible pit, out of rainy day, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my group (Psa 40: 2)
He will keep the feet of His Saints (1 Sam. 2 : 9a)
- Saints Established: In righteousness shall thou be established; thou shall be far from oppression; for thou shall not fear; and from terror, for it shall not come near thee. (Isa. 54: 14)
The more we draw nearer to the people, the more our benefit from them, likewise God. God says, anyone that draws nearer to Him, He will draw nearer to such person. Anyone who draws away from Him, He will draw farther from such person.
Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you. Thank you
Stay blessed in Jesus Name – Amen
