God Is Greater

2 Chronicles 20:1-12

Everyone faces challenges in life, whether financial, vocational, relational, physical, or spiritual. When trouble comes, as it inevitably will, we should waste no time in bringing it to God.

Jehoshaphat, the king of Judah, faced an enormous challenge as three nations simultaneously threatened to attack. The king immediately sought the Lord’s help. Notice that the bulk of his prayer focused on God’s greatness—acknowledging His almighty power, authority over all nations, past acts of faithfulness on Israel’s behalf, and willingness to hear the prayers of His people when they cry out to Him. 

These same truths should be the foundation of our prayers. He is still the sovereign, powerful God who has proven Himself faithful and promises to listen to our prayers. We should never underestimate the Lord’s interest in our affairs. He will help His children today, just as He helped Jehoshaphat.

It’s easy to think our problems are unimportant to God, but He doesn’t feel that way at all. Whatever concerns us concerns our Father. So when we, like Jehoshaphat, rely fully on the Lord, He will help us. And remember: No matter how great our challenges are, God is greater.
