So honored that I get to be a part of your day. You guys are just so amazing and I thank you for your love and support.

(01:12): So if you could keep on doing that, that would be incredible because you are helping this movement as it helps reach more women and it impacts more lives, and that is certainly what life is all about. So thanks so much. So let's dive in. Are you ready? Is there something in your life where you just don't know what to do right now? What is your, I don't know. You don't know how this is all gonna work out. You don't know how this is ever gonna be, okay? Again, you don't know where this next step is going to lead, but if you don't take this next step that you will be stuck here forever and you've decided being stuck here isn't an option. And that is a good thing because God doesn't want you to be stuck here. He has plans for you beyond this problem, beyond this situation.

(01:57): And he has a vision for you beyond this dilemma. He has win for you beyond this trouble. I want you to just really soak that up for a moment. And God isn't just waiting on the other side of this. I mean, we so often forget that he is right here with us in this place of not knowing what to do. And he's here. He's right here and he knows what to do. In my life, I've been able to look back at my problems and see God was using them to get me out of my own plans and into his. I look back at my challenges, the ones that caused me gray hair or the sleepless nights, and I see how each one has led me to a course of events my mind couldn't even imagine. And I look at my troubles in the rear view mirror as I move forward with fire and I see God, he was always preparing me always.

(02:54): And I know know that I know that he is preparing you as well. He's using all of this to bring you to a place where you don't know what to do so that you can actually go fully seek him. In second Chronicles 20 verse 12, it says, we do not know what to do but our eyes are on you. I mean, it took me a long time to admit that there are times that I just don't know, times that I don't know what to do, things that I can't fix or control or plan out, map out schedule. And during those times was when God brought me to seek him and find him. And if we knew everything, if we are to know it all, always knowing exactly what to do next, I gotta ask you, would we be looking to God would be, would we really be seeking his guidance for our next step if we already knew the step and had unshakeable confidence in our own ability to take it?

(03:54): We would like to think that we would still seek God, but the fact of knowing what to do proves we can't be trusted with certainty. We can't be trusted with plans that always work the way that we think that they should. We would forget to look to him. And so if you're in this place of not knowing what to do, I mean that's exactly where you're supposed to be and it's okay. It's okay so that you can keep your eyes on him. And I love this story. I think I like pronouncing his name even more. Jha fat. The king of Judah is the one who said, Lord, we do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you. He and his people were under attack, not just one tribe, but three tribes were coming after them. And there's this huge, massive, vast army that they knew that they could not defeat.

(04:43): I mean for real, they did not know what to do. And it said in verse four, the people of Judah came together to seek help from the Lord. And you have to admit, this is pretty sound advice, don't you think? I mean that's what you do in these situations. You come together and you seek help from God. But let's like pause here for a moment. Is that what we're really doing? Or are we divided? Are we waging war in our own camp? Are we battling one another over what to do while the enemy closes in on us? The people came together to seek help from the Lord. King Jha stood there before his people and called out to God. I mean he willingly admitted 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.

(05:32): It's so humbling, honorable, really. I mean there was no faking it until we make it here. What can God do with the group gathered with no clue what to do but fully seeking him? What can he do when we are powerless to face what is coming against us, but we are seeking his power to move forward, ladies? I mean he can guide us directly into a miracle. And then when we continue in that story in verse 14, it says, then the spirit of the Lord came on. What? As he stood in the assembly, this was a young man who was there seeking the Lord because he was there. The spirit of God spoke through him. Imagine if we got in position to seek God and be ready to hear from him. Why are we dismissing this essential piece in our story? This is what God spoke through him in verses 15 through 17.

(06:25): Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this fast army for the battle is not yours, but God's tomorrow, march down against them. They will be climbing up by the passive Z, z and you. Like I said, it's pronunciation for me. Okay? Just stick with me here. They will be climbing up by the passive Z and you will find them at the end of the gorge, in the desert of jerre. You will not have to fight this battle. Take up your position, stand firm and see the deliverance the Lord will give you. Do not be afraid. Do not be discouraged. Go out to face them tomorrow and the Lord will be with you. I know this is for someone today. The spirit of the Lord is saying to you right now, go ahead and face this. I will be with you. Do not be afraid and do not be discouraged because of this news and that you have received because of this potential battle ahead or because of this hardship that you find yourself in.

(07:24): This battle is not yours. This is the battle of the Lord. And you will not even have to even fight this battle. So go ahead and face this and watch what he is going to do on your behalf. You can just breathe. So Jha fat and his army did not know how to fight this battle just as you don't know how to fight yours. All God needed them to do was to fully seek him. Then face it, face their enemies. Face the issue, face the problem. And trust that God was without a doubt with them. And this was a battle they wouldn't even have to fight. In verse 18, we're going through this here. Jha fat bowed down with his face to the ground and all the people of Judah and Jerusalem fell down in worship before the Lord. We are given a step by step battle plan here.

(08:12): Are you realizing that seek God, worship God, then what battle. Go for it. Run all in with fierce faith. Verse 23, 21, early in the morning they set out Jha fat appointed men to sing to the Lord and to praise him for the splendor of his holiness. As they went out at the head of the army saying, give thanks to the Lord for his love endures forever. Not only did they set out and face the battle, even though Jha fat appointed a praise team to go before the army, they led the way with praise. How many times have you asked someone to pray for you, but have you ever asked someone to praise for you? I mean, you're marching into the unknown. You're facing a battle. There's no way you can win. Gather a praise team to go out ahead of you. Call up your friends, call up your family, your prayer warriors and say, I'm walking into some heavy stuff.

(09:12): Will you praise God for me today? Will you give thanks to the Lord on my behalf today? Will you shout out a praise report? I'm heading out to go face this. And what I really need you to do is to go before me and praise God. I did this just a few weeks ago, wanted to do something different, right? Flip the script. Because up to this point, I had never ever done that. I've pretty much enlisted people to worry with me. I've gathered people to be on my side before I've vented and ranted and had them tell me I'm right. I've had people offer me their pity and their sorrow. I've had people pray for me, but I have never asked someone to praise God ahead of me. I'm walking on into this now and I'm gonna need you to be given a whole lot of praise today.

(09:57): Will you do that? Is this an aha, a light bulb moment for anyone else? Or is this just me? I wanna praise before you today, whatever you're walking into, I want you to know that I am showing up for battle with praise after praise before you be the crazy girl and rejoice. God is working, he is moving, he is with us as we face the, I don't know in our life. Now here it is the verse that is the fun part and should be firing you up right now. Verse 22, as they began to sing and praise the Lord, set ambushes against the men who were invading Judah and they were defeated ambushes guys, as the praise team went ahead and saying God sent ambushes against their enemies and fullon defeated them. And in verse 24, when the men of Judah came to the place that overlooks the desert and looked toward the vast army, they saw only dead bodies lying on the ground.

(10:53): No one had escaped. What did the people of Judah have to do to win this battle? They had zero chance of winning. Seek God to worship God. Three, send in the praise team and four, show up. What can you do today? You can seek God, you can worship God, you can send in the praise team. And if you don't have anyone, let me know because I'll go in and before you and praise God, message me, okay? Truly find me on social media and I will promise you that I will go ahead of you and praise God for you. And then number four, then you show up. God has said to you, go ahead and face this. I will be with you. Do not be afraid and do not be discouraged because of this news you have received, because of this potential battle ahead or because of this hardship you find yourself in.

(11:43): This battle is not yours. This is the battle of the Lord. You will not even have to fight this battle. Go ahead and face this and watch what he is going to do on your behalf. This just relieves so much pressure, so much anxiety lifted off so much stress. We can be rest assured that God will be with us to fight the battle and the unknown. Man, this fires me up.
