2 Chr. 20:14-17
Three nations came together to make war against Jehoshaphat. It was, no doubt, a terrible situation for Jehoshaphat - V.1-2.
Though alarmed, Jehoshaphat responded by inquiring of the Lord and proclaimed a fast for all Judah - V.3 - 13.
In response to their prayer, God spoke through Jahaziel to encourage and assure Jehoshaphat and Judah of victory.
Though it was a vast army that came against them, God gave Jehoshaphat and Judah victory over their enemies.
The same God is still on the throne and He will do same for you and I this coming month, and the rest of this year in Jesus' Name.
