How many people were being tormented by a problem and considered suicide to be their only answer? How many people hit rock bottom because of a problem that seems impossible to solve?

Jehoshaphat was about to face barbarian enemies, who were coming to destroy everything. At first, his reaction was normal, he was afraid. But shortly after, faith conquered fear. Jehoshaphat called everyone to fast and, as he was praying, he confessed that he did not know what to do. Certainly, he was referring to the inequality of this physical battle.

At that moment, the Holy Spirit came to put an end to all his doubts, bringing word that made the multitude seem like they were just one man.

Do not be afraid nor dismayed because of this great multitude, for the battle is not yours, but God’s. 2 Chronicles 20.15

Here is the answer, because if we are of God, if we obey His Word, if we listen to the voice of the Altar, our battles become His battles.

It is glorious to serve the Lord, because He always does more than we can even imagine.

Jehoshaphat only wanted deliverance, but after entering the Valley of Decision and conquering powerful armies, without a single weapon in hand, the unexpected happened:

When Jehoshaphat and his people came to take away their spoil, they found among them an abundance of valuables on the dead bodies, and precious jewelry, which they stripped off for themselves, more than they could carry away; and they were three days gathering the spoil because there was so much. 2 Chronicles 20.25

When we listen to the voice of the Altar, more than what we expect always happens. Everyone that entered the Valley of Decision went to the Valley of Blessing:

And on the fourth day they assembled in the Valley of Berachan, for there they blessed the Lord; therefore the name of that place was called The Valley of Berachah until this day. 2 Chronicles 20.26

Those who come with us to the Decision will also enter the Blessing of the Almighty.
