Podcast #222: “He Still Does” by Hawk Nelson

Uncovering a Miracle in 2 Chronicles 20

We all want the miracle, but are we willing to do our part? Are we willing to seek Him? Are we willing to walk in God’s ways? Hawk Nelson reminds us that God is in the miracle business through their song “He Still Does.” King Jehoshaphat and the people of Judah experienced an amazing miracle one morning in the desert.

The Lord was with King Jehoshaphat — join me as we explore why.

This Week’s Challenge

Read 2 Chronicles 17-20 for yourself! Consider the story of King Jehoshaphat…the good, the bad, and the ugly. Ponder the characteristics of God and His ability (and desire) to perform miracles in the lives of those who seek Him. Resolve to inquire of the Lord. Involve others in the process — we were never meant to walk all of this alone. Set your heart to delight in the ways of the Lord. Do not be afraid. Do not be discouraged. The Lord will be with you.
