2 Chronicles 20:7-9 NKJV
“Are You not our God, who drove out the inhabitants of this land before Your people Israel, and gave it to the descendants of Abraham Your friend forever? And they dwell in it, and have built You a sanctuary in it for Your name, saying, If disaster comes upon us – sword, judgment, pestilence, or famine – we will stand before this temple and in Your presence (for Your name is in this temple), and cry out to You in our affliction, and You will hear and save.”
We must remember (recall) God’s care (help) for us in the past, when He has brought victory to us in other desperate situations. Jehoshaphat did just that. He remembered where God had brought them from and what He had done for them. Jehoshaphat remembered the victories they had won and the obstacles that they had overcame with the help of God.
Exodus 6:7-8 NKJV
“I will take you as My people, and I will be your God. Then you shall know that I am the Lord your God who brings you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians. And I will bring you into the land which I swore to give to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and I will give it to you as a heritage: I am the LORD.’ ”
Psalm 44:1-3 NKJV
“We have heard with our ears, O God,
Our fathers have told us,
The deeds You did in their days,
In days of old:
You drove out the nations with Your hand,
But them You planted;
You afflicted the peoples, and cast them out.
For they did not gain possession of the land by their own sword,
Nor did their own arm save them;
But it was Your right hand, Your arm, and the light of Your countenance,
Because You favored them.”
God is the same God that He was in days past. You can look back on past miracles (help) and it will build your faith in believing that God will help you again.
