II Chronicles 20 = Encouragement

3 ... And Jehoshaphat feared,and set himself to seek the LORD, and proclaimed a fast ...

4 ... And Judah gathered themselves together, to ask help of the LORD: ... to seek the LORD ...

12 ... neither know we what to do: but our eyes are upon thee.

13 ... And all Judah stood before the LORD, with their little ones, their wives and their children ...

15 ... Thus saith the LORD unto you, Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason ... for the battle is not yours, but God's ...

17 Ye shall not need to fight in this battle: set yourselves, stand ye still, and see the salvation of the LORD with you, ... : fear not, nor be dismayed; ... for the LORD will be with you.

18 ... and the inhabitants ... fell before the LORD, worshipping the LORD ...

20 And they rose early in the morning and went forth ...Believe on the LORD your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper.

21 ... Praise the LORD; for his mercy endureth for ever.

The Word of the Lord is alive, applying to every time and place. It was encouraging to me when I read this portion with our "Journey to the Future" on my mind and in my heart before the Lord.

This is the portion noted to me by a friend. It had spoken to her heart in her/their situation as well as to ours.

II Chronicles 20 spoke to my heart as well ... Encouragement from the Lord through a friend.

Just one of the blessings of a Christian's life.

Thank you, GOD!
