Welcome to *20/03* and the *DIVINE REFUGE TO ACCESS* is in *2Chron.20/03*-

_”And Jehoshaphat feared, and set himself to seek the Lord , and proclaimed a fast throughout all Judah.”_


Jehoshaphat with the nation of Judah were confronted in war by three mightier nations- _”It came to pass after this also, that the children of Moab, and the children of Ammon, and with them other beside the Ammonites, came against Jehoshaphat to battle.”_ vs 1

This made Jehoshaphat to be filled with fear- _”And Jehoshaphat feared”_

But in the midst of his fears, Jehoshaphat sought refuge first in the Almighty God of Israel in the place of fasting and prayers- _”and set himself to seek the Lord , and proclaimed a fast throughout all Judah.”_

For making God their refuge, God went ahead of them in the battle- _”And when they began to sing and to praise, the Lord set ambushments against the children of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, which were come against Judah; and they were smitten.”_ vs 22

For having God as their refuge, their enemies were ambushed and totally destroyed- _”And when Judah came toward the watch tower in the wilderness, they looked unto the multitude, and, behold, they were dead bodies fallen to the earth, and none escaped.”_ vs 24


When you make God your refuge, you will triumph over every trial, temptation, trouble and turmoil into overwhelming-:

1. *REVELATION*- _”Then upon Jahaziel the son of Zechariah, the son of Benaiah, the son of Jeiel, the son of Mattaniah, a Levite of the sons of Asaph, came the Spirit of the Lord in the midst of the congregation; And he said, Hearken ye, all Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem, and thou king Jehoshaphat, Thus saith the Lord unto you, Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God’s.”_ vs 14,15

2. *RICHES*- _”And when Jehoshaphat and his people came to take away the spoil of them, they found among them in abundance both riches with the dead bodies, and precious jewels, which they stripped off for themselves, more than they could carry away: and they were three days in gathering of the spoil, it was so much.”_ vs 25

3. *REJOICING*- _”Then they returned, every man of Judah and Jerusalem, and Jehoshaphat in the forefront of them, to go again to Jerusalem with joy; for the Lord had made them to rejoice over their enemies.”_ vs 27

4. *RESPECT*- _”And the fear of God was on all the kingdoms of those countries, when they had heard that the Lord fought against the enemies of Israel.”_ vs 29

5. *REST*- _”So the realm of Jehoshaphat was quiet: for his God gave him rest round about.”_ vs 30

*But God must be your first and foremost refuge for you to enjoy His first class revelation, riches, rejoicing, respect and rest!*

*Prayers to God must be your first and foremost place of refuge in times of trials, temptations, troubles and turmoils.*



_O Lord let me always make you my first and foremost refuge so as to triumph gallantly into first class revelations, riches, rejoicing, respect and rest in Jesus name._



Good day
