Hear O Israel!

Where Help Really Comes From . . . Hear O Israel!

When Solomon dedicated the Temple. God said to him, "When your enemies, or plague, or famine attack you, you can come before this Temple and ask for MY help and I will deliver you!"

King Jehoshaphat learned, from some 'messengers,'  a vast army from Edom, Ammon, and the Menuites were approaching Jerusalem to attack Israel. He was TERRIFIED!

Jehoshaphat Went and stood before the new courtyard of the Temple and said this to the Lord, "We don't know what to do. but WE ARE LOOKING TO YOU FOR HELP!"

Long story short, God said, "Do not be afraid! Don’t be discouraged by this mighty army, for the battle is not yours, but God’s. Tomorrow, march out against them. You will find them coming up through the ascent of Ziz at the end of the valley that opens into the wilderness of Jeruel. But you will not even need to fight. Take your positions; then stand still and watch the Lord’s victory. He is with you, O people of Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid or discouraged. Go out against them tomorrow, for the Lord is with you!” 2 Chronicles 20:15-17

Long story short, God did just that He defeated Israel's enemies! All they had to do is TRUST Him, The army of Israel was led by Singers and Worshipers!

Where does your HELP come from?

Martha said of Mary as she sat at the feet of Jesus, Lord don't you care that Mary has left me here to serve alone?

What did Jesus say?

We run around looking for Help from every possible source but the ONE who can really help, don't we?
