An Influential Life
Bible Text: 1 Kings 22:41-50 | Preacher: Pastor Joe Ricchuiti | Series: 1 Kings, An Influential Life

He acknowledged God’s person, His power, His help to them in the past, and finally acknowledged their poverty (they had no power and no plan). Their hope was in the Lord. Having committed all to the Lord they were to stand, God would go to battle for them and give them the victory.
