Today’s Reading: 2 Chronicles 17 – 20
“And the fear of God was on all the kingdoms of those countries, when they had heard that the LORD fought against the enemies of Israel. So the realm of Jehoshaphat was quiet: for his God gave him rest round about.” 2 Chronicles 20:29-30 (KJV)
Jehoshaphat was noted as a man who did right in the sight of the LORD (v. 32). He was facing a large contingent of united armies against Judah, and he sought the LORD, believed Him and was delivered.
For the Christian of today the enemy is sin and the devil. The reason there is little or no fear of God in our land is due to the unconfessed, lack of repentance of the Christian; and tolerance of evil deeds and men.
Father send down Your Spirit in power, glory, and honor to Your name upon all who are Your people. Send down fire from heaven.
Put the fear of God back in Your people; then there will be a fear of God in the hearts of the enemy – all who are evil, all who exalt themselves against You, Your Spirit and Your Word.
Bless the Lord. Amen.
