Our Daily Bread Devotional, 4th Of May 2023
TOPIC: Operating with Prayer
TEXT: Jehoshaphat resolved to inquire of the Lord. 2 Chronicles 20:3
TODAY’S SCRIPTURE & INSIGHT: 2 Chronicles 20:1–12
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 1 Kings 16–18, Luke 22:47–71
Jehoshaphat, an experienced national leader, prayed too during a crisis. Three nations had united against him, and they were coming to attack his people. Although he had more than two decades of experience, he decided to ask God what to do. He prayed, “[We] will cry out to you in our distress, and you will hear us and save us” (2 Chronicles 20:9). He also asked for guidance, saying, “We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you” (v. 12).
Jehoshaphat’s humble approach to the challenge opened his heart to God’s involvement, which came in the form of encouragement and divine intervention (vv. 15–17, 22). No matter how much experience we have in certain areas, praying for help develops a holy reliance on God. It reminds us that He knows more than we do, and He’s ultimately in control. It puts us in a humble place—a place where He’s pleased to respond and support us, no matter what the outcome may be.
REFLECT & PRAY:-

Dear God, thank You for listening and responding to prayer. I worship You as the all-knowing, all-powerful God. Please help me in each challenge I face today.
PRAYER OF SALVATION
Please say this pray
I come to You Lord Jesus. I admit that I am a sinner, and I want to be right with You. I ask You to forgive me of all my sins. Wash me away from all unrighteousness and clease me clean Today. The Bible says if I confess with my mouth that “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in my heart that God raised.
Thank you for saying that prayer, you are in CHRIST now, Old things have passed AWAY………….HALLELUYAH
