This Week’s Memory Verse: 2 Chronicles 20:20 ESV
Believe in the LORD your God, and you will be established;
believe his prophets, and you will succeed.”
This Week’s Message:
This week our Memory Verse is short but powerful. It is the words of King Jehoshaphat when he spoke to the people of Judah and Jerusalem before a big battle. The people were afraid because their enemies were much greater than they. However, King Jehoshaphat prayed to the LORD asking Him what they should do and the Spirit of the LORD answered him through one of the prophets in attendance. The prophet told them that the LORD said:
Not to be afraid or dismayed at the size of their enemy, for the battle was not theirs but it was the LORD’s.
The LORD told them where the enemy would be and when and what they should do.
They were not to be afraid, not to be dismayed and not to fight!
They were to go out, stand firm, hold their position and watch what the LORD would do!
(You can read the whole account in 2Chronicles Chapter 20.)
Now, in order to be successful the King and the people had to BELIEVE! And then they had to act on that belief. They had to believe in the LORD God and believe in His prophet and then prove they believed by doing what the prophet said the LORD had told them. The same holds true for us today. Let’s memorize this verse as a reminder to ourselves of the importance of prayer, belief, and action.
If you would like you can Print the verse out in a card format to post to your refrigerator, bathroom mirror, car visor, or other place that would keep it in your daily vision.
It will help to remind you to memorize it as you go through your day and also could be a great tool in sharing with others who might see it.
