God said, “Here is the Plan!” Verse 14 tells us that, “…the Spirit of the Lord came upon Jahaziel…”
Jahaziel then stood up and announced God’s battle plan. In verses 15-17, God gave His people three specific details: A time: Tomorrow! A place: March to the end of the gorge! A plan: “Stand firm and see the deliverance the Lord will give you.” In other words, God was saying, “Do not allow yourself to become downcast!”
Satan’s greatest weapon against us is the creation of a downcast spirit!
To be downcast is to be low -- bummed out if you will! The people of Judah had good reason to be a little bummed out! They were in a pickle! Have you ever been in a pickle? Have you ever been downcast? It was into that situation that God spoke! “Stand firm and see the deliverance the Lord will give you.” Those same words are still available for us this morning! “Stand firm and see the deliverance the Lord will give you.” Today is not the day to be downcast! Stand firm! God is about to deliver!
Do not be discouraged. It is often the last key in the bunch that opens the lock.
