Godly leaders will be both an example and an encouragement for the people. Jehoshaphat believed God’s promise and exhorted his people to also believe. Then he put the worshipers in front of the army as a continual reminder that God is worthy to be trusted and praised.
2 Chronicles 20:20-21
So they rose early in the morning and went out into the Wilderness of Tekoa; and as they went out, Jehoshaphat stood and said, “Hear me, O Judah and you inhabitants of Jerusalem: Believe in the Lord your God, and you shall be established; believe His prophets, and you shall prosper.” And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed those who should sing to the Lord, and who should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army and were saying:
“Praise the Lord,
For His mercy endures forever.”
PRAY FOR ALL ISRAEL TO WORSHIP GOD IN SPIRIT, TRUTH, HUMILITY AND FAITH IN YESHUA.
