Are you at a place of such desperation that you can’t afford to miss God’s will for your life? Jehoshaphat, king of Judah, was in a similarly critical situation. He was a God-fearing king who found himself surrounded by a powerful enemy army.

Scripture records…“And Jehoshaphat feared, and set himself to seek the Lord, and proclaimed a fast throughout all Judah. So, Judah gathered together to ask help from the Lord; and from all the cities of Judah they came to seek the Lord. … Now all Judah, with their little ones, their wives, and their children, stood before the Lord” (2 Chronicles 20:3–4, 13, NKJV).

All of Judah fasted, even the women and children. In response, God encouraged them through a prophet, saying, “…‘Do not be afraid nor dismayed because of this great multitude, for the battle is not yours, but God’s. … You will not need to fight in this battle. Position yourselves, stand still and see the salvation of the Lord, who is with you, O Judah, and Jerusalem!’ Do not fear or be dismayed; tomorrow go out against them, for the Lord is with you” (2 Chronicles 20: 15–17, NKJV).

In the midst of the whole assembly, God told Judah exactly how that enemy army would approach and exactly what they were to do. They gave tremendous praise to the Lord, and He set ambushes against the enemy army and defeated them. None escaped. When the people of Judah arrived, it took them three whole days to carry away the spoil!

Do you want God to tell you what you need to do at this time in your life? Continue to fast, worship, and seek Him. Press in like Jehoshaphat in times of great distress—you and your whole family, perhaps even your entire church. God will deliver you and show you His plan!
