Facing a Vast Army

In 2 Chronicles 20, Jehoshaphat was King of Judah (God’s chosen nation).  His people were being opposed by God’s enemies, the Moabites and Ammonites.  I liken the battle that Jehoshaphat had in 2 Chronicles 20 to the battle that the body of Christ has against porn today.  I know I talk about this a great deal, and some people just think I am an alarmist.  But take a look at these stats put out by the Baptist Press.

These statistics are sobering to say the least.  What do we do?  How do we respond?

We respond like Jehoshaphat.

In 2 Chronicles 20:12, Jehoshaphat prays this to God, “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.”

You see statistics like this, and it can be overwhelming.  The Lord is impressing on my heart to increase my prayer effort against this evil called online porn.  Would you join me in this effort?  Would you involve others in your local body to do the same?

We have no power to face this vast army, but our eyes are on Jesus!!!
