Hope: Through Music

Sometimes, when we feel like King Jehoshaphat, afraid and overwhelmed, we set our face to seek the Lord. We get on our face and we cry out … “We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you.”

2 Chronicles 20
Jehoshaphat had cried to the Lord: “O God, we are powerless! Help us.” And God responded, “Fear not, the battle is mine!”


17  Stand firm, hold your position, and see the salvation of the Lord on your behalf, O Judah and Jerusalem.’ Do not be afraid and do not be dismayed. Tomorrow go out against them, and the Lord will be with you.”
18  Then Jehoshaphat bowed his head with his face to the ground, and all Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem fell down before the Lord, worshiping the Lord.  19 And the Levites, of the Kohathites and the Korahites, stood up to praise the Lord, the God of Israel, with a very loud voice.

21 And when he had taken counsel with the people, he appointed those who were to sing to the Lord and praise him in holy attire, as they went before the army, and say,

“Give thanks to the Lord,
    for his steadfast love endures forever.”

22 And when they began to sing and praise, the Lord set an ambush against the men of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir, who had come against Judah, so that they were routed.
