After consulting the people, Jehoshaphat appointed men to sing to the LORD and to praise him for the splendor of his holiness as they went out at the head of the army, saying: “Give thanks to the LORD, for his love endures forever.” As they began to sing and praise, the LORD set ambushes against the men of Ammon and Moab and Mount Seir who were invading Judah, and they were defeated. (2 Chr 20:21-22 NIV)
Prayer: LORD, help me remember to praise You for Your goodness and mercy in difficult times, especially when it is not the “natural” thing to do. Even in the worst of circumstances, You are able to turn overwhelming odds into victory for me when I acknowledge You. I am grateful that Your mercy endures forever. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
