He prayed, “O LORD, God of our ancestors, you alone are the God who is heaven. You are ruler of all the kingdoms of the earth. You are powerful and mighty;
no one can stand against you!”
2 Chronicles 19:6 (NLT)
Terror filled King Jehoshaphat as a vast enemy army marched toward his kingdom. He responded by praying. Rather than focusing on his desperate plight, however, he first focused on God’s might and His faithfulness in the past.
We face battles too. Focusing on the details in prayer only makes them loom larger. Centering our thoughts and words first on God’s strength, wisdom, and love helps put our situation in the right perspective: Our battle seems big, but God is bigger.
“God, I praise You today for being bigger than my battle. Through You, I will be victorious. Amen.”
