And he said, hearken ye, all Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem, and thou
king Jehoshaphat, Thus saith the Lord unto you, Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great
multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God's.
Jehoshaphat a righteous King of Judah was facing one of the
toughest battles of his entire life. In the early part of this chapter Scripture says in 2 Chronicles 20:3-4 "And Jehoshaphat
feared, and set himself to seek the Lord, and proclaimed a fast throughout all Judah. And Judah gathered themselves
together, to ask help of the Lord: even out of all the cities of Judah they came to seek the Lord." Jehoshaphat was shaken
because three nations greater and mightier in number had surrounded Judah with the intention of annihilating them and they had the man power to do it. This threat was not taken lightly by
Jehoshaphat and this was the reason he proclaimed a fast for the entire nation.
You may be facing a similar situation where you are
surrounded by financial troubles, marital troubles, on the job troubles, court troubles, health troubles and many more. At this moment, you are overwhelmed with seemingly nowhere and no one
else to turn to. People have turned their backs on you and your situation seems hopeless. I have great news for you. The same words spoken to Jehoshaphat applies to you. God
want me to tell you "FEAR NOT NEITHER BE AFRAID AT THIS GREAT TROUBLE THAT YOU ARE FACING, DON'T BE DISCOURAGED MY CHLD BECAUSE THIS BATTLE IS NOT YOURS IT BELONGS TO THE
LORD." Friend anytime your back is against the wall God is about to step into your situation and give you a sudden turn around. He is aware of your situation and knows that you
don't have much time. One thing me and my wife have learned over the years is when our backs is against the wall it's the place where the greatest miracles take place.
King Jehoshaphat was faced with three great obstacles,
number one he was afraid. Number two he was discouraged. Number three he did not have the answer to his troubles. It was at this place in his life he fasted and prayed and God sent
the answer. You are not reading this letter by coincidence. This is a word God have given me to deliver to you to encourage and strengthen your faith. You are about to experience
A SUDDEN TURNAROUND. They only had 24 hours and needed God to move quickly. This God intended to do. He sent the word and said in 2 Chronicles 20:16 "Tomorrow go ye
down against them: behold, they come up by the cliff of Ziz; and ye shall find them at the end of the brook, before the wilderness of Jeruel."
God told Jehoshaphat exactly where the enemy was hiding and
even encouraged him to confront the enemy. No one of us like confrontation. But there comes a time when you must take a bold stand and trust God with the results. After all he did
say to him in 2 Chronicles 20:17 "Ye shall not need to fight in this battle: set yourselves, stand ye
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. God encouraged him not to fight but He did encourage him to take a stand. It almost sounds contradiction. He tells him he would
not have to fight but in the same sentence God said, "...tomorrow go out against them..."
God's ways are not our ways and that's why we need to trust
and obey Him even when it does not make sense. After all we are encouraged in Proverbs 3:5 "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not
unto thine own understanding." Jehoshaphat got revelation that He don't have to fight but when he faced the enemy tomorrow they would worship and sing praises to the Lord.
What a strange way to confront the enemy with praise and worship. This hardly seems reasonable. But God had his plans and refused to allow the enemy to take away the precious land that He
had given to His chosen people. I know it seems like you are on the verge of losing everything but that devil is a liar. God will not allow him to strip away what he has given you to
enjoy. I want to join my faith with you today believing God for you to experience A SUDDEN TURN AROUND.
Jehoshaphat and his people took a step of faith and
confronted the enemy and Scripture records in 2 Chronicles 20:22-23 "And when they began to sing and to praise, the Lord set ambushments against the
children of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, which were come against Judah; and they were smitten. For the children of
Ammon and Moab stood up against the inhabitants of mount Seir, utterly to slay and destroy them : and when they had made an end of the inhabitants of Seir, every one helped to destroy another." When God's people confronted their enemies, and began to praise and worship the Lord, He sent
confusion in the midst of the enemy and they began to fight and destroy one another. God may not come when you want him to, but he shows up on time. They were right at the deadline when
God came through and defeated their enemies with a deadly defeat. The bible say, "...they looked unto the multitude, and, behold, they were dead bodies fallen to the earth, and none escaped.
Not one of your enemies or troubles will escaped the power
of almighty God. He is on your side and you might as well begin to shout and praise Him in advance for the victory that's headed your way. You are about to see a sudden turnaround in your
situation. God turn the tables on the enemy in 24 hours. What a mighty God we serve. I feel the anointing of the Holy Ghost on me at this very moment. I really believe God is
going to do somethoing special for you today.
No battles you face are in vain. There are always
spoils and rewards in every battle. What the devil meant for evil God turned it around. Look at what happned next in 2 Chronicles 20:25 "And when Jehoshaphat and his people came to take
away the spoil of them, they found among them in abundance both riches with the dead bodies, and precious jewels, which they stripped off for
themselves, more than they could carry away: and they were three days in gathering of the spoil, it was so
much." What seemed like trouble and complete chaos God turned it into one of the greatest wealth transfers recorded in the Bible. Friend do you see what God is
about to do for you and me. I can feel the Holy Ghost stirring a miracle to breakout on our behalf. What the devil meant for evil God is going to make it work together for our good
because we love God and are called according to His purposes.
Get ready because God is about to give you A SUDDEN
