What Has Become Unmanageable In Your Life?

What Has Become Unmanageable In Your Life?

Have you ever found yourself in a situation where there was no way out? How did you pray? It wasn’t just asking God for help and direction. When we find ourselves in an impossible situation, we fall to our knees in prayer. God, I can’t do this, I need you to deliver me from certain doom.

If we are connected to Christ through an intimate relationship, trust and obedience will be a natural response when He calls us to accomplish the impossible. God will not ask us to do anything that is too great for Him to achieve for us. In 2 Chronicles 20, the Moabites, the Ammonites, were about to attack Judah. King Jehoshaphat had all his people fast and pray and seek what God would have them do. That’s leadership!

2 Chronicles 20:15-18

“Listen, King Jehoshaphat and all who live in Judah and Jerusalem! This is what the Lord says to you: ‘Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God’s. 16 Tomorrow march down against them. They will be climbing up by the Pass of Ziz, and you will find them at the end of the gorge in the Desert of Jeruel. 17 You will not have to fight this battle. Take up your positions; stand firm and see the deliverance the Lord will give you, Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Go out to face them tomorrow, and the Lord will be with you.’”18 Jehoshaphat bowed down with his face to the ground, and all the people of Judah and Jerusalem fell down in worship before the Lord.
God told Jehoshaphat and Judah, He would fight their battle and win!

2 Chronicles 20:22-24

As they began to sing and praise, the Lord set ambushes against the men of Ammon and Moab and Mount Seir who were invading Judah, and they were defeated. 23 The Ammonites and Moabites rose up against the men from Mount Seir to destroy and annihilate them. After they finished slaughtering the men from Seir, they helped to destroy one another. 24 When the men of Judah came to the place that overlooks the desert and looked toward the vast army, they saw only dead bodies lying on the ground; no one had escaped.
It’s God who gives victory. Let’s stop asking God to bless what we are doing and instead pray and ask Him how we can join what His is doing.
What is God doing in your area? How can you join Him? Start with prayer.
