Have you ever faced something that seemed really scary? Has there been a time when you ever felt like everyone in your life was against you? In those times, it can be difficult to know what to do or where to turn.
In today’s Bible verse, we see that Jehoshaphat faced a vast army. Facing something like that would feel really scary. Let’s read about what happened.
Messengers came and told Jehoshaphat, “A vast army from Edom is marching against you from beyond the Dead Sea. They are already at Hazazon-tamar.” (This was another name for En-gedi.) – 2 Chronicles 20:2
I can only imagine how scary that must have felt. A huge army was coming against them. They probably felt outnumbered and overwhelmed.
Read: Help! I’m Afraid.
And maybe you feel the same way. Perhaps you feel like you’re overwhelmed by the things you’re facing right now. The good news is that God doesn’t leave us helpless or alone in those times.
Today’s Truth: I might be scared, but I’m not alone!
Instead, God is there to guide us in what to do and how to come through difficulty.
Today, don’t give into feelings of fear. Just like Jehoshaphat, God will help deliver you and give you the wisdom you need to face the scary and big things in your life.
Pray: God, I thank you that you’re helping me. I thank you for your help in what I’m facing today. I ask you for wisdom today, in Jesus name, Amen.
