No matter what your first instinct turns out to be, your first ACTION should be to seek God for guidance.
Do you know how many hours of your life you could save from being wasted on fruitless worry and fear if you’d just turn to God as a first ACTION rather than a last resort?
Jehoshaphat was terrified by this news and begged the Lord for guidance. He also ordered everyone in Judah to begin fasting.
2 Chronicles 20:3 NLT
