Metaphysical meaning of Jeruel (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of Jeruel (mbd)
Jeruel, je-ru'-el (Heb.)--foundation of God; founded of God; God points the way; vision of God.

A wilderness, where Jehoshaphat met and defeated the children of Ammon and Moab. This was the battle wherein Jehoshaphat was told that the battle was not his but God's and that he would not have to fight in it; he was simply to stand still, fearlessly, and see the salvation of Jehovah (II Chron. 20:16).

Meta. A firm trust in God--the mind stayed on God (foundation of God, founded of God)--even when one seems to be in a wilderness of conflicting, undisciplined thoughts. Thus spiritual inspiration (God points the way, vision of God) is realized and victory is gained over the carnal mind and the wild, uncultivated states of thought that are signified by Moab and Ammon.
