“For we are powerless against this great horde that is coming against us. We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you" (v12). King Jehoshaphat and the people of Judah were helpless against invading armies (v10), but they put their trust in God. God spoke through the prophet Jahaziel: “Do not be afraid … this battle is not yours but God’s … You will not need to fight in this battle. Stand firm, hold your position, and see the salvation of the LORD on your behalf” (v17).
“Do not be afraid and do not be dismayed” (v17). Sometimes the only thing we need to do is to “stand firm,” trusting that our Savior fights for us.
