God Gives Specific Instructions for Victory
Hello Readers & Followers,
How are you doing? Feel free to share this post with others if you have been blessed by it.
Do you remember the account of David and King Jehoshaphat? One thing that was featured in the life of David is that he frequently sought the Lord's direction and counsel when he faced a trial and the Lord graciously gave him a clear and definite answer of how to pursue his enemies (You should study the book of 1 Samuel 23, 1 Samuel 30, 2 Samuel 2, 2 Samuel 5, and many more).
David and Jehoshaphat had to undertake different tasks to be granted victory. The Lord sent Jahaziel to Jehoshaphat to instruct him on how the battle will be won. Jehoshaphat followed the counsel by gathering people to praise God with loud voices and they matched out in front of the army.
The Lord set ambushes against the men of Ammon and Moab and Mount Seir who were invading Judah, and they were defeated (Read 2 Chronicles 20) while David had to literally pursue his enemies.
Finally, we need to keep seeking God's counsel and guidance. You do not need to copy God's specific counsel for other people. God gives us specific instructions for victory.
