Memorize and Reflect

2 Chronicles 20:12 Our God, will you not judge them? For we have no power to face this vast army that is attacking us. We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you.

Prayer Direction

Our God - Thank God for who He is and that He made a way for us to know Him and be with Him daily and eternally through the grace and sacrifice of Jesus. Our God is both powerful and personal! He is Yahweh, the Creator and Sustainer of the heavens and the Earth and everything in it. He is Abba Father and our Good Shepherd. He is both our Divine Warrior, who zealously fights for His children and Great Physician, who comforts and heals all of our iniquities and infirmities. Ask God to move in any situations you are facing, for His will to be done, and to stretch and strengthen your faith throughout the process.

“Live It!” Challenge

Find some space in your schedule this week and get alone with God. Begin by meditating on who God is and thanking Him for all that He has done for you. Next take some time and read out loud some of the favorite verses of the Shoreline staff in our app or website and pray through the verses you read. Bonus Challenge: On one day this week, swap out your regular playlist for the Shoreline summer playlist found and listen and sing along while you are driving, exercising, or enjoying your daily activities.

Small Group Discussion

  1. When you hear the word confidence what comes to mind?

  2. What are situations and circumstances in life and in our world that can affect our confidence?

  3. Read: 1 Kings 15:9-14 and 1 Kings 15:23-24 This is the first reference to King Jehoshaphat, the king of Judah. What was the legacy of his father and the circumstances of his father’s (Asa) death?

  4. Read: 2 Chronicles 17:1-6 and 2 Chronicles 19:4-7 Now Jehoshaphat is ruling the Kingdom of Judah. How would you characterize his leadership and the strength of his kingdom under his rule?

  5. Jehoshaphat grew up in a family that worshiped and honored God. What was your experience of hearing about God when you grew up? What are some ways you are passing on your faith to your children/grandchildren/nephews/nieces?

  6. Read: 2 Chronicles 20:1-12. What do you think of Jehoshaphat’s response to the news of the attacking armies? What is one aspect of his prayer that struck you?

  7. When you consider your own prayer life right now, how might this prayer serve as an inspiration no matter what you are going through in life?

  8. Notice the role of God’s promises within Jehoshaphat’s prayer. How does leaning into God’s promises when we are facing daunting challenges and difficult circumstances help strengthen our faith and increase our confidence?

  9. Think of a time in your life when God moved powerfully following a heartfelt and humble prayer. What were the circumstances you were facing and how did God move in that situation?

  10. Spend some time thanking God for His faithfulness in your life and in the lives of others.
