I, with most Christians, want one.  But how much price are we willing to pay.  Many of us are going to give a couple hours today since it is Sunday.  What things happened to bring about Jehoshaphat’s victory?

Some thoughts on Jehoshaphat’s victory (II Chron. 20) in which he sent singers before his army.  Chances are that you have heard of the importance of music set in that context.  And there will be lots of singing today.

See the other things he did:

Fasting – Verse 3

People prayed – Verse 4

Jehoshaphat prayed – Verse 9

Prophesy – Verses 15-17

Jehoshaphat bowed – Verse 18

People worshiped – Verse 18  (perhaps as Jehoshaphat was doing)

They gave praise – Verse 19

Instructions, building faith  – Verse 20

Singing praise and thanksgiving – Verse 21

Answer came!


The chances are that many churches will start off with songs; then go to some instruction (teaching/preaching) and little else.

And we wonder why no revival, no victory!

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

    Oh Lord, send a revival. Lord let it begin in me. Daily refine, remould, change me so that I will continue to grow and be more like YOU. Then, maybe if all around the world, when God answers our daily personal prayers He will pour out His Holy Spirit once more in a mighty wave and revival will come. Without the Holy Spirit in FULLNESS as Lord God Almighty and not just a ‘puff’ of wind, .large sections of the church continue to play ‘religion’. DIVINE LOVE because of the Sacrifice at Calvary when accepted and fully applied to life is the ONLY way forward for the world. LOVE!
