Good morning everyone.  Believe all is well and believe we had a good night rest.

Today, by the grace of God, we shall be sharing on the topic: Do Not Worry.

Worry may be defined as state of being anxious, probably feeling overwhelmed by a certain situation or circumstance.

The encouragement for us today is: Do Not Worry.

In 2 Chronicles 20:1, the people of Moab with the people of Ammon and others with them besides the Ammonites came to battle against Jehoshaphat.

Jehoshaphat feared (2 Chronicles 20:3a). He was afraid. He was scared. 

At times also, we get scared when we face certain situations e.g. Having a loved one in the hospital (Probably recuperating after a surgery), etc.

But Jehoshaphat did something; He set himself to seek the Lord and proclaimed a fast throughout all Judah. (2 Chronicles 20:3b)

Jehoshaphat sought God.

David also went through a challenging situation when the Amalekites invaded the South and Ziklag, attacked Ziklag and burned it with fire. They had taken captive of the women and those who were there. (1 Samuel 30: 1- 2)

David and his men were unhappy about the situation.

But David strengthened himself in the Lord his God (1 Samuel 30:6b) and he inquired of the Lord. (1 Samuel 30:8)

The encouragement for us is to seek the Lord during challenging times. It may be difficult. We might probably be overwhelmed with emotions about the prevailing circumstance.

But we have our God who is our Shepherd.  He cares for us. He will never leave us nor forsake us. He is always by our side.

Philippians 4:6-7 says; Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds thorough Christ Jesus.

Jehoshaphat and David were victorious over the challenging circumstances they faced (2 Chronicles 20:22 and 1 Samuel 30:18- 19).

We also will be victorious in Jesus’ name. Amen.
