Dr. Fredricc Brock: This Battle is Not Yours (2 Chronicles 20:13-17)

Dr. Fredricc Brock, lead pastor and co-founder of The Message Church in San Antonio, encouraged his congregation with the story of King Jehoshaphat, who led his people to seek God through prayer when they were confronted by a coalition of enemies. Brock draws out from this story some lessons for today.

Faith in God must be stronger than fear and discouragement. Faith in God must be paired with being prepared and in the right place. Finally, when the battle comes, the one who trusts in God may find no need to fight, because the Lord will fight the battle.



This sermon was delivered during a Sunday morning worship service at The Message Church in San Antonio.
