In the second half of the story of Jehoshaphat, in 2 Chronicles 20, we find the Israelites going into battle without anything but their praise. God moves, and they win a staggering victory over their enemy. We see that God has several things to teach us from this story, both about our heart’s posture and our response to hardship:
1. We must continually humble ourselves before God. Jehoshaphat responded to God’s command by humbling himself and being obedient. Until we surrender our wills, requests, and plans to God, we’ll never see His victory in our lives.
