Stand Firm in Faith – Be Still and Know That I Am God

Stand Firm in Faith

In 2 Chronicles 20, King Jehoshaphat admitted he did not have the answers and he prayed to the Lord. He trusted God that He would protect Judah and Jerusalem from a great multitude coming against them. They knew if help came that it would be from God. He commanded them to Stand Still or Stand Firm in some translations and see the salvation of the Lord. 2 Chronicles 20:17 says ‘You will not have to fight this battle.  Take up your positions; stand firm and see the deliverance the Lord will give you, Judah and Jerusalem.  Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.  Go out to face them tomorrow, and the Lord will be with you.’

God answered Jehoshaphat’s prayer and the people praised the Lord after the answer came to Jehoshaphat. They were not save yet but they trusted in Faith that they would be saved.  The battle was lead by the people singing and worshipping as they went to face the multitudes.  The Lord set against the people and they fought against themselves, and they were defeated.  Just as God promised, the battle belonged to Him.  He won the battle for the people.  THEY STOOD FIRM in their FAITH!
