Today Reminder - 21 October 2013 (Day 15 - Living in the Kingdom)

A reminder for today
But you will not even need to fight. Take your positions; then stand still and watch the LORD's victory. He is with you, O people of Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid or discouraged. Go out against them tomorrow, for the LORD is with you!" (2 Chronicles 20:17)

I am sitting here listening to the rain falling softly on the roof. It is amazing how the Lord is blessing us with this wonderful weather. The weekend is over and the week is about to begin. We are often sitting at the start of the week looking at the challenges ahead and I must admit this week in particular has some big ones waiting for me. We can so easily be overwhelmed by the unknown and just the thought of what can go wrong that we tend to forget we are worshipping an almighty God.

My dear friend, as this week kicks of the Lord wants us to remember that just as king Jehoshaphat did not need to fight in this battle against the armies of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir, we do not need to fear the battle that awaits us. We must remain faithful and trust the Lord for He will defeat the enemy and drive our worries away.

After consulting the people, the king appointed singers to walk ahead of the army, singing to the LORD and praising him for his holy splendour. 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. The armies of Moab and Ammon turned against their allies from Mount Seir and killed every one of them. After they had destroyed the army of Seir, they began attacking each other. So when the army of Judah arrived at the lookout point in the wilderness, all they saw were dead bodies lying on the ground as far as they could see. Not a single one of the enemy had escaped.(verse 21 – 24) 

Come with me today and let us "Give thanks to the LORD; His faithful love endures forever!" Let us stand and sing praises to our Lord for there is no other like Him. He will fight the battle for us and He will not let the enemy defeat us so that we will know He is God.

Have and awesome day dear friend of Jesus
