May I interrupt?
Just pause a minute.
And slowly read this great prayer of Jehoshaphat
(it’s a prayer that bears repeating).
“Whenever we are faced with any calamity such as
we can come to stand in Your presence
before this temple where Your name is honored.
We can cry out to You to save us,
and You will hear us
and rescue us.”
(2 Chron 20:9 NLT)
Apply this to your faith-life in Christ.
Right where you’re at.
Is doubt and fear assaulting faith?
Are you in the midst of
a relational conflict, a moral or spiritual battle?
Are you struggling with
emotional, mental, spiritual or physical
ailments that plague you?
Are you hungry for God;
thirsty for the Spirit;
starved for truth or direction?
Honor His name in your temple.
Go to Him.
Cry out for rescue.
In His presence,
in that moment,
Grace meets you.
You can lay it all before Him
and—even in that brief reprieve—
He strengthens you to endure.
So when you rise from your knees
and return to face that thing
you rise renewed.
confident that He has heard you
and will help you conquer every doubt.
Trust His overcoming power.
