Do you know what the king of Judah’s first reaction to hearing that the armies were coming against him? He broke out in a cold sweat. Fear was his first response. To me that’s comforting. He wasn’t a warrior king like we see in movies, he was just like us. He did what we would have done, he panicked!
But, what set him apart was that even though he was afraid he, “set himself to seek the Lord.” (2 Chron 20:3) What does that mean? The answer is in the next verse.
“So, Judah gathered together to ask for help from the Lord; and from all the cities of Judah they came to seek the Lord.”
Simply put, to “seek” the Lord is to ask for help. I pray that you get a fresh revelation of how much God WANTS us to come to Him when we face any battle and ask Him for help. When we do this, we are seeking Him, and the Bible says that those who seek Him find good. They find “provision, restoration and lack no good thing.” Psalms 34:19.
So don’t ever be afraid to seek (ask) God and tell Him what’s troubling you and look to Him for help. When you are faced with a battle, God wants to be involved. That’s how you begin to take Him at His Word and allow the battle to be His.
