Bible Story:

2 Chronicles 20:1-37

When the Moabites, Ammonites, and some of the Meunites rose up against Judah, their king, Jehoshaphat went in prayer to the Lord. Jehoshaphat confessed that he and the nation of Judah were nothing without God. God fought the battle against the Moabites, Ammonites, and Meunites for Judah. God fights our battle against sin and we have victory through Jesus.



Thankfully, God does not just leave us in the broken world, but is repairing the brokenness through His Son. From the very beginning of time, God promised He would fix creation, and He kept His promise by sending Jesus to rescue us from our sin. Jesus came to live on the earth and willingly died on the cross so that sin’s power over creation would be broken forever.
