Brent McDougal: When You Don’t Know What to Do (2 Chronicles 20)

Brent McDougal, the senior pastor of Cliff Temple Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas, refers to three current “enemies:” a global health pandemic, the national threat to the economy and the personal battle against fear and anxiety. He likened the odds being faced during the coronavirus pandemic to the three-pronged threat faced by King Jehoshaphat in ancient Judah. The king didn’t know what to do, but he knew his eyes—and the eyes of his people—were on the Lord. Taking his cue from Jehoshaphat, McDougal offers three lessons for facing the three current battles.

This sermon premiered online on May 17, 2020, for the morning worship services of Cliff Temple Baptist Church in Dallas. Sermon notes are available here.
