Here’s your 90 second AM devotional!
2 Chronicles 17:10
The Fear (Holy Respect) of The Lord fell on all the kingdoms of the lands surrounding Judah, so that they did not go to war against Jehoshaphat
The word of God under King Jehoshaphat was read and taught by the Levites throughout Judah, to the point that the fear of The Lord, the power of The Lord, and the anointing of The Lord was upon all Judah. It was so powerful that it spread to the nations surrounding Judah, those who did not even believe in Judah’s God.
What happened here? “The Right Fear” came upon everybody. Any nation that respect’s Jehovah God will not only be blessed of God, but other nations will have a holy respect for that nation’s God as well. The Bible says in verse 11 that the Philistines, Judah’s arch enemy, came and brought silver and gold to King Jehoshaphat. They also refused to go to war against him. Other Arabs brought the King thousands of rams and goats. It was as if the enemies of Judah were saying … “Is there anything else we can do for you … “Followers of Jehovah?” All of this came about because of the King of Judah’s renewed interest and love for the Word of God. God’s Word always produces … “The Right Fear.”
Today I thank you for your Holy Word … “The Bible.” Because of Your word I have a holy respect for You. It’s “The Right Fear” that I’m thankful for. Amen
