MEMORY VERSE: “….but the people that do know their God shall be strong and do exploits”. Daniel 11:32b

BIBLE TEXT: 2 Chronicles 20:5-23, Joshua 1:3-10
2 Chronicles 20:5-23

[5]And Jehoshaphat stood in the congregation of Judah and Jerusalem, in the house of the LORD, before the new court,

[6]And said, O LORD God of our fathers, art not thou God in heaven? and rulest not thou over all the kingdoms of the heathen? and in thine hand is there not power and might, so that none is able to withstand thee?

[7]Art not thou our God, who didst drive out the inhabitants of this land before thy people Israel, and gavest it to the seed of Abraham thy friend for ever?

[8]And they dwelt therein, and have built thee a sanctuary therein for thy name, saying,

[9]If, when evil cometh upon us, as the sword, judgment, or pestilence, or famine, we stand before this house, and in thy presence, (for thy name is in this house,) and cry unto thee in our affliction, then thou wilt hear and help.

[10]And now, behold, the children of Ammon and Moab and mount Seir, whom thou wouldest not let Israel invade, when they came out of the land of Egypt, but they turned from them, and destroyed them not;

[11]Behold, I say, how they reward us, to come to cast us out of thy possession, which thou hast given us to inherit.

[12]O our God, wilt thou not judge them? for we have no might against this great company that cometh against us; neither know we what to do: but our eyes are upon thee.

[13]And all Judah stood before the LORD, with their little ones, their wives, and their children.

[14]Then upon Jahaziel the son of Zechariah, the son of Benaiah, the son of Jeiel, the son of Mattaniah, a Levite of the sons of Asaph, came the Spirit of the LORD in the midst of the congregation;

[15]And he said, Hearken ye, all Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem, and thou king Jehoshaphat, Thus saith the LORD unto you, Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God’s.

[16]To morrow go ye down against them: behold, they come up by the cliff of Ziz; and ye shall find them at the end of the brook, before the wilderness of Jeruel.

[17]Ye shall not need to fight in this battle: set yourselves, stand ye still, and see the salvation of the LORD with you, O Judah and Jerusalem: fear not, nor be dismayed; to morrow go out against them: for the LORD will be with you.

[18]And Jehoshaphat bowed his head with his face to the ground: and all Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem fell before the LORD, worshipping the LORD.

[19]And the Levites, of the children of the Kohathites, and of the children of the Korhites, stood up to praise the LORD God of Israel with a loud voice on high.

[20]And they rose early in the morning, and went forth into the wilderness of Tekoa: and as they went forth, Jehoshaphat stood and said, Hear me, O Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem; Believe in the LORD your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper.

[21]And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed singers unto the LORD, and that should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army, and to say, Praise the LORD; for his mercy endureth for ever.

[22]And when they began to sing and to praise, the LORD set ambushments against the children of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, which were come against Judah; and they were smitten.

[23]For the children of Ammon and Moab stood up against the inhabitants of mount Seir, utterly to slay and destroy them: and when they had made an end of the inhabitants of Seir, every one helped to destroy another.

Joshua 1:3-10

[3]Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you, as I said unto Moses.

[4]From the wilderness and this Lebanon even unto the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and unto the great sea toward the going down of the sun, shall be your coast.

[5]There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.

[6]Be strong and of a good courage: for unto this people shalt thou divide for an inheritance the land, which I sware unto their fathers to give them.

[7]Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper whithersoever thou goest.

[8]This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.

[9]Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.

[10]Then Joshua commanded the officers of the people, saying,

LESSON INTRODUCTION: The promise of God is to make His children the head and not the tail, Deuteronomy 28:1, always having upper hand. Last week, we talked about characteristics of champions.
Today we will be looking at how can one become an indisputable champion in God’s vineyard, what the secrets of true champions are and some biblical examples. May the Lord open our eyes to the secrets of becoming a true champion.

To become a godly champion: You must;
1 Know the champion of all champions. John 3:16

2. You must know the truth, acknowledge divine provision for your rising. John 8:32, Acts 10:38

3. Be addicted to divine knowledge and principles. Psalm 119:9&11. Get the required information from the word of God. Joshua 1:8

4. Crucify all limitations to your goal. Galatians 2:20

5. Be obedient to divine order. Joshua 1:9, Numbers 13:1-2

6. Explore the ways other champions used to succeed and discard errors the defeated made ie. you must always focus on Jesus to get you to your clerical peak. Hebrew 12:2.

7. Discipline: A controlled behaviour, self-control.

1. Daniel. He became champion in a foreign land because he refused to defile himself with king’s meal. Daniel 1:8

2. Joseph. He fulfilled his dreams when he refused to sleep with Potiphar’s wife Genesis 39:7-13

3. Mordecai and Queen Esther. They became champions in the palace of king Ahasuerus when they refused to bow to the threat of wicked Haman. Esther 6:13

4. King Hezekiah. He conquered terror and panic from the camp of King Sennacherib by deploring angelic assistance that silenced king of Assyria. 2 kings 19:32-39

5. King Jehoshaphat. He conquered the thread of three powerful nations that came against the land of Judah by believing the word of God. 2 Chronicles 20:1-22

SUMMARY: Becoming godly champion begins with the mind of seeing yourself as a product of grace, procured through divine mercy.

CONCLUSION: Building structure of greater works of divine champion starts from knowing who you are in Christ.
