Give thanks unto the Lord for his enduring love lasts forever.
« on: November 30, 2011, 01:45:52 PM »
This is what Jehoshaphat's singers of praise sang as they marched to the battle ground where God told Jehoshaphat to go. God had told him before hand, "This is not your battle, but mine.".

Unbeknownst to Jehoshaphat, while his prayer warriors praised God, the response was that it cause confusion among the armies waiting for fight. They turned on each other and killed each other.

When Jehoshaphat arrived at this battle ground, he saw thousands of dead bodies. God had already prevailed.

God will do this for you to. Walk out in faith. It is God's battle, not yours.

Trust in him and he will do great things.

That is where some of us Christians fall short. Trusting in God and allowing Him to control our lives. Jesus was sent as an example and that is what we need to concentrate on, not trying to do things our own way.

Yes. Because like what was said in my favorite animé movie,

"No matter how strong you become, don't try to bear the weight by yourself.
You WILL fail."

But if you put your trust to the Lord, everything will work out according to His plan.

So true catwoman, do not lean on your own understanding, lean on the Lord and things will work out. Great statement.

This is definitely something i needed to read today.  I do not every doubt that God exists or that He will always be there for me....and I give thanks to Him every day, even when I struggle with what to be happy about.  But that does not mean that I don't have questions about my faith and wish I could just go and ask God....and reading that helped me to remember that even during the difficult times, God goes before me!  Thank you for posting!
