How to Regroup the Troops

What battles rage on your field today? Take “time out” to regroup your troops and “stand down.” Are you disappointed in someone who has let you down? I love this quote from W. Glynn Evans,

How does this happen? We must ‘take our position, stand still and wait (watch) for God to work.’ And that is the hardest part. We are not very good at waiting. Are you disappointed in your job, suffering from financial loss, grieving a loved one, struggling with addiction? Here are four lessons from 2 Chronicles 19, the battle of King Jehosaphat:

1. One of the most difficult things to do in doing battle God’s way is to stop.  “Cease striving and know I am God,” Psalm 46:10.

2. When we are stopped, we must stand still.  “Take your position, stand still, and watch the Lord’s victory” 2 Chronicles 19:17

3. Do you think God is taking too long? God wants us to wait on his timing.  “That is why I wait expectantly, trusting God to  help, for He has promised,” Psalm 130:5

4.We must trust Him – that’s called belief.  “Believe in the Lord your God, and you will be able to stand firm” ”2

“Then all the men returned to Jerusalem, with King Jehosaphat leading them, overjoyed that the Lord had given them victory over their enemies” 2 Chronicles 19:21

Let’s pray,

“Dear Father, thank you for the opportunity to submit to your will today. We choose to “stand down.” I commit all of those who are struggling with disease and death to your plan, give them peace, comfort and hope in your plans for their future. Thank you for this chance to stop, stand still, wait and believe. Lord, protect my family and friends from everything but what will glory you the most. We praise you in advance for the opportunity to celebrate and glorify you. In Jesus’ Name, Amen
