“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”. (2 Chronicles 20:22)
Beloved, every time praise is rendered unto God, He comes, inhabits it and then takes over the battle at hand. I bet you, there is no calamity that can come around you that is not afraid of the God in you. Praises makes you more than a conqueror. Each time you praise God, you cheat the enemy in that it’s no longer you doing the fighting but you have invited his master to come and whip him silly. You may not have the might to destroy your enemies but handing them over to God through praising Him gives you cheap victory.
The book of Psalms 149:6 says, “Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand.” No matter how great your enemies are, you can put an end to their torments and oppressions in your life. The children of Israel in our bible reading today were perplexed by the magnitude of opposition against them but then they decided to handover the battle to the Lord. It was the praise and worship singers that set the precedence for their victory. They invited the Divine to come and take over the battle by singing praises to the Lord. In the same vein, you hand over your battles to God when you praise Him. When you praise Him, He sets ambushments against your enemies.
Beloved, what mountain is before you and seems bigger than you? Stir God up in your situation. Invite Him in praise. It may be stronger than you but can never be stronger than God. In doing this, don’t forget that giving your Firstfruit is a sign to God that you are ready for His blessings in your life this year.
2 Chronicles 20:13-22, Psalms 149:6-9
Delivered from evil manipulation
I usually had difficulty sleeping at night due to evil manipulations. After service one day, I went home with the oil of gladness and sprinkled it everywhere in my room. That was the end of the oppression. I now sleep like a baby. Praise God!
[Spend some time and worship God. Thank Him for all He has done.]
