“This is what they sang: “Give thanks to the Lord; his faithful love endures forever!” At the very moment they began to sing and give praise, the Lord caused the armies of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir to start fighting among themselves.
2 Chronicles 20:21-23 NLT
As Jehoshaphat waited on the Lord, he praised Him and as he praised Him the Lord defeated the enemy.
In your waiting, praise the Lord. The Lord will bring deliverance to you. Lift your hands and voices and declare the goodness of the Lord as you wait. Declare the great things He is doing and is about to do. He hasn’t forgotten about you.
What the Lord told Jehoshaphat remains true for you and me,
“He said, “Listen, all you people of Judah and Jerusalem! Listen, King Jehoshaphat! This is what the Lord says: Do not be afraid! Don’t be discouraged by this mighty army, for the battle is not yours, but God’s.”
I had just got back into town and was waiting for someone to pick me up to take me home. It was still early in the morning and it was cold when I heard a noise next to me. I looked down and this is what I saw.
A man sleeping in a sack!
I was feeling cold so just imagine what he felt. And this was his home……
There were other people sleeping in the box. I saw this and realized how much God has given me. When I think about my life I think about all the things not in place yet. Things still to be accomplished, problems to be solved and so on but seeing that man made me realize I need to live a thankful life. I have a LOT to be thankful for….Things not going my way should never be an excuse to not be thankful.
Can we be thankful for all He has done and all He is doing?
Remember, no matter what is happening in your life right now, you ALWAYS have a reason to be thankful!
