Believe His Prophets

“…Hear me, O Judah, and you inhabitants of Jerusalem; Believe in the LORD your God, so shall you be established; believe his prophets, so shall you prosper.” – 2 Chronicles 20:20

When King Jehoshaphat faced the greatest crisis of his life – an enormous invading army from Moab and Ammon – he turned to God in an exemplary manner. He led his people to prayer and fasting, as we all should do under seemingly impossible circumstances.

God then spoke through the prophet Jahaziel. The man of God encouraged the people and said:

“You shall not need to fight in this battle: set yourselves, stand you still, and see the salvation of the LORD with you, O Judah and Jerusalem: fear not, nor be dismayed; tomorrow go out against them: for the LORD will be with you.” – 2 Chronicles 20:17

The next morning, the LORD God gave them a miraculous victory – just as the prophet had predicted.

The assembled men of Judah marched in accordance with the words of the prophet to the wilderness of Tekoa. As they marched forth, Jehoshaphat stood and called upon them to trust firmly in the Lord and His prophets. He ordered them to march, not for battle, but to assure themselves in faith, of the wonderful help of the LORD. He placed the singers of the Lord in front singing praise in holy array, marching forth before the army and thanking the Lord in advance for the help He would deliver.

Matthew Henry comments: “Jehoshaphat exhorted his troops to firm faith in God. Faith inspires a man with true courage; nor will anything help more to the establishing of the heart in shaking times, than a firm belief of the power, and mercy, and promise of God. In all our trust in the Lord, and our praises of him, let us especially look at his everlasting mercy to sinners through Jesus Christ. Never was an army so destroyed as that of the enemy. Thus God often makes wicked people destroy one another. And never was a victory celebrated with more solemn thanksgivings.”

When they began to sing and praise the LORD, their enemies were discomfited and began to fight among themselves. They were smitten by God without Judah having to lift a hand against them.

In times of crisis we should also fast and pray, believe upon His Word, and seek out God’s true prophets for understanding.

In addition to His written Word, Jesus has appointed prophets in the New Testament church to give us special revelation from God during troubling events, as well as day-to-day guidance for our spiritual lives. Contrary to what dispensational churches falsely teach, the Eternal God is still speaking today through His true prophets. They are men and women of God who He has raised to preach, teach, and prophesy under the anointing of the Holy Spirit. Only when we listen and obey God’s prophets shall our Christian lives be firmly established, and everything we do shall prosper and succeed.

Our God

By Chris Tomlin

“Among the gods there is none like unto thee, O Lord; neither are there any works like unto thy works.” – Psalm 86:8

Water you turned into wine
Opened the eyes of the blind
There’s no one like you, none like You!

Into the darkness you shine
Out of the ashes we rise
There’s no one like you none like You!

Our God is greater,
Our God is stronger,
God you are higher than any other.
Our God is Healer,
Awesome in Power,
Our God! Our God!


Will Jesus answer all my prayers?

Jesus promised that “Whatsoever you shall ask in My name, that will I do, that [God] the Father may be glorified in the Son.” – John 14:13

Whenever we pray in harmony with Jesus’ nature, character and will, we should expect to receive an answer, no matter how challenging the request may be. Our faith in prayer should not be hindered by the impossibilities or circumstances we perceive, but on the sure promises of God’s Word.

There is no limit to the power of prayer if prayed in the name of Jesus according to His will in unswerving faith.

Jesus will answer any prayer that He would have prayed Himself.

Just before His crucifixion and resurrection, Jesus promised us: “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believes on Me, the works that I do shall you do, because I go unto my Father.” – John 14:12.

When Jesus resurrected from the dead and went to be with God the Father, He sent forth the power of the Holy Spirit to fill us and enable us to do “greater works” than even He did while He walked upon the earth in human form. Through prayer, it is Jesus’ desire that we convert the lost, heal the sick, cast out devils and perform all manner of miracles.

Comment from Donna: “This article reminds me of WWJD bracelets that people used to wear reminding them that we are supposed to follow Jesus Christ’s example in our day-to-day walk. I have seen miracles in my life because I continue to learn to follow in His footsteps. I continue seeking after the greater works that He did in His ministry, because to quote the apostle John, “Greater is He that is in me, than he that is in the world.” (I John 4:4)

Peace – A Place of Power

Grace For Today“And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” – Philippians 4:7

Did you know that peace is one of God’s weapons of strength and power to protect us in the midst of trials and tribulations? No matter what comes against us, no matter what difficulty surrounds us, the peace of God guards our hearts and minds like a shield. When we remain steadfast in our faith, God’s peace protects us from fear, panic, and turmoil. We can remain fearless and confident that “That the Lord will fight for us, and we shall hold our peace and remain at rest” (Exodus 14:14).

The finished work of the cross of Christ is God’s great stop sign. The devil may try to come against us like a flood at full speed, but when we put up the cross by faith, he slams on his brakes and comes to a screeching halt because he cannot pass the cross. Jesus steps in and blocks the way against all attacks and tells the devil he can pass no further. Peace will rule in the midst of storms.

It’s inconceivable to the carnal mind that peace could be considered a weapon – the very concept surpasses all human understanding. But God says it works, and it is powerful! Pray for God’s peace next time you’re facing a storm. Pray, “Lord, guard my heart and mind with your peace in Christ Jesus. Fill me with your source of power that will see me through this trial. Help me to wait upon You to fight for me, and to give me the ultimate victory. Amen.”

Meekness Is Not Weakness

Bible Word Studies: Lowly

“Behold your King is coming to you, LOWLY, and sitting on a donkey…” – Matthew 21:5

The word lowly in this verse is the Greek praus (pronounced prah-ooce). It describes the humility and meekness of Jesus as He confronted His enemies who hated Him and wanted to crucify Him. As He entered Jerusalem lowly but confidently while riding on a donkey, He did so in a manner that was unassuming, mild and gentle. But don’t confuse Jesus’ meekness with weakness; on the contrary. His meekness was power under perfect control.

As followers of Jesus, we too must be meek in our character and strive to always maintain control of our emotions and corresponding actions. When the devil is using other people (sometimes even religious people) to hurt you, criticize you, assassinate your character, speak falsely of you, or slander your name, remember to bear it with patience and meekness – just as Jesus did. When we are able to endure these trials without retaliating and leave the vengeance up to God – that’s power!

“Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.” – Matthew 5:11-12
