2 Chronicles 20: 1_20.
Jehoshaphat. Gives us 3 points on what to do when you are in a Battle and scared.
1. Have a relationship with God before the battle starts. Because God don’t jump in ever one fight.
But if you are my child that’s a different story.
How many got into a fight because your child was in a fight?
And you said go get your dad to. I will kick his___.
The bible said Jehoshaphat was a zealous follower of God.
He sought the Lord.with all His heart.
And because of the relationship.
Riches and honor increased around him.
A relationship with God is kind like having car insurance before the accident.
As a matter of fact if we have full coverage.
We dare someone to hit us. We’ll God gives us assurance.
That He will never leave us.
Nor forsake us.
Assurance that my sins are forgiven.
My name in the Lamb book of life.
2.The people of Judah did not know what would happen.
But they trusted God.
Put your trust in God and not man.
Do not leaned on your own understanding.
But in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your way out of poverty.
Direct your way out of a bad relationship into a great relationship.
Direct your way out of bad health into good health.
Direct your way out of debt into abundance.
Direct your way out of worrying into a peaceful mind.
He leads me beside still waters.
The Lord is my shepherd I shall not want.

He prayed to God.
Have a little talk with Jesus.

But I did not realize
He was talking about church folks.
He said the world.
If you are a child of God then you are not the world so why do I have to fight you?
Sometime you are put in a situation to show you and others who he really is.
So you can believe that he is God and when you read that there is nothing to hard for God.
You know that it is true.
