Our Caring and Able Father - II Chronicles 20

Everyone faces challenges in life. Whether our struggles are financial, vocational, relational, or physical, we can be certain that nobody is exempt. Fortunately, we serve a God who is both interested in our problems and able to take care of them.

When trouble looms, prayer is always a good first step to take. But having a foundation upon which to build our prayers also makes a difference. Jehoshaphat, the King of Judah, faced an enormous challenge. Three different tribes - the Moabites, Amonites, and Meunites - simultaneously waged war against him. Most leaders would have crumbled under such pressure, or at the very least taken drastic measures, but Jehoshaphat was a wise king. Though afraid, he did not strike out against his enemies.Instead, knowing that God was interested in his dilemma, he "turned his attention to seek the Lord" and proclaimed a fast throughout the land (II Chronicles 20:1-3).

Jehoshaphat also knew that God, who was greater than any earthly problem, had done miraculous things for Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, David, and Daniel. That same God would help him, too, in his hour of need. We should never underestimate the Lord's interest in our affairs. He helped our ancestors in the Bible, and He can and will help His children today.

It's easy to think our problems are unimportant in the eyes of God, but He doesn't feel that way at all. Whatever concerns us concerns Him. If we, like Jehoshaphat, turn right to God and proclaim His power, He will intervene. And no matter how great our challenges are, God is greater.

Current Sermon Series
      Reading the Bible is both a natural and supernatural task. There is a lot to think about when it comes to reading the Bible. In this series, we hope to be able to explain how the two meet. We are going to cover The Ultimate Goal of Reading the Bible, The Supernatural Act of Reading the Bible, and The Natural Act of Reading the Bible.

Last Week:
      We looked at the things that keep us from reading the Bible. We also saw examples of those who failed reading the Bible. But we also looked at how God intervenes for us to understand and apply His Word.
      Sunday's message is available for streaming or for download on our
sermons page, or by visiting us on iTunes.

Next Week:
      We will conclude our series How To Read The Bible For Yourself by digging into The Natural Act Of Reading The Bible Supernaturally.
