Preached by Rod Benner (00:24)
Long ago in ancient Judah, King Jehoshaphat showed great faith in God when faced with an insurmountable challenge. Enemy armies surrounded Judah and the armies of Judah were not ready to meet the better equipped enemy. Instead of surrendering in fear or trying harder with human strength, the King turned to God first and God moved on behalf of his people.
Yet, a part of the king’s legacy was that he failed to “remove all the pagan shrines” in the land. The people had a great moment of faith but they never fully committed their lives to God. The failure of the king doesn’t outweigh his success but it became a part of his legacy. There was a “however”, a “nevertheless” in his life and there didn’t need to be.
What is the “however” or the “nevertheless” in your life? Some attitude or activity that God has revealed to you and given you the ability to change yet you have decided to keep it Don’t feel guilty and live with it. Rater, be encouraged and continue to give your heart, soul and mind to God today.
