Today’s passage is 2 Chronicles 20:20-37. Let’s go!
2 Chronicles 20:20 (NIV)
20 Early in the morning they left for the Desert of Tekoa. As they set out, Jehoshaphat stood and said, “Listen to me, Judah and people of Jerusalem! Have faith in the LORD your God and you will be upheld; have faith in his prophets and you will be successful.”
On verse 20: As Jehoshaphat’s men set out for the Desert of Tekoa to face their attackers early in the morning, Jehoshaphat gives his men a word of encouragement. He encourages them to have faith in the Lord and in His prophets as their key to success. What can we learn from this?
One of the best things you can do at the beginning of each morning as you set out for the day is to feed on the encouragement of God’s Word. Even if you normally have your GAME time later in the day, there is great value in getting some of God’s Word – even a verse – into your mind to.
Your success goes hand in hand with how well you follow and trust God and your God-given leaders.
