Charles Stanley (October-03-2020) Daily Devotion: Responding to Life’s Trials. 

How do you respond when faced with a sizable problem for which there seems to be no solution? After considering all angles and seeing no way out, do you panic or sink into despair? Believers in Jesus Christ should remember there’s another option: Pray and rely on the Lord.

Today’s verses provide a rich, detailed account of Jehoshaphat’s remarkable faith. When Judah was threatened by a great and powerful enemy, the king responded by seeking the Lord. His prayer was based on divine promises and Judah’s total dependence upon God for deliverance. In response, the Lord sent a comforting message through a prophet, and Jehoshaphat told the people, “Put your trust in the lord your God and you will be established. Put your trust in His prophets and succeed” (2 Chronicles 20:20).

This is good advice for us today because our only true foundation in times of trouble is the Lord and His Word. Jehoshaphat’s prayer is a model we can follow. When we come humbly before God and base our prayer requests on the truths and promises of Scripture, we can trust Him to do exactly what He has said.

    Amen, cuando algo esta mas alla de nuestras fuerzas, solo recordar que Dios dice "esta batalla no es de ustedes sino de Dios" es tan reconfortante, es una vitamina para nuestra vida. Es como cuando Moises dijo a Israel antes de cruzar el mar "no se asusten, permanezcan firmes y vean la obra de Dios, vean como El los salva hoy y a esos egipcios que hoy ven, no volveran a verlos nunca mas" .Me encanta la parte que dice "vean la obra de Dios" lo que nuestros ojo ven, es lo que Dios esta realizando para sacarnos de cualquier problema aun si aquello no tiene sentido para nosotros y el momento que parece mas imposible de salir adelante es ya el final, cuando hemos cruzado el mar abierto y de acuerdo a su obre se cerrara ahogando nuestros problemas.
