Priority – 2 Chronicles 20: 1-4
Jehoshaphat’s initial reaction to the news that a vast army was coming against him, was not to summon his generals, to muster his army, or to collapse in despair. His priority was to resolve to ‘enquire of the Lord.’
Think back to a time when you faced a significant challenge.
- What was it?
- How did you feel?
- What thoughts or fears went through your mind?
- How did you respond?
- What did you do?
- How was the challenge resolved?
- How long did it take?
- What did you learn through the challenge about yourself, other people and about God?
- You may find it helpful to record your answers in your journal.
