At the very moment they began to sing and give praise, the Lord caused the armies of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir to start fighting among themselves. The armies of Moab and Ammon turned against their allies from Mount Seir and killed every one of them. After they had destroyed the army of Seir, they began attacking each other. So when the army of Judah arrived at the lookout point in the wilderness, all they saw were dead bodies lying on the ground as far as they could see. Not a single one of the enemy had escaped. 2 Chronicles 20:22-24
All week I’ve been giving you bits and pieces of this amazing story of victory. God wasn’t kidding when He told the king and all the people, ‘I’ve got this! You just go on up there and watch and see what I will do for you.’
It was not Gods command to send the worshippers in first, it was king Jehoshaphat who made that decision. He wanted the name of the Lord to be exalted like a banner raised. It identified that they as a people, trusted in the Lord God of Israel.
I’ve got to say that perhaps the battles we face everyday would look differently if we would raise up a banner of praise to the Lord. To say that we trust in Him above all else. Above our checking accounts and investments, above our diets and exercise, above our jobs and possessions. Above our doctors and lawyers and even social media.
What if the moment your praise left your lips, God began moving on your behalf? All along He had plans to show you that He has this. All along His plan was to show you He is simply enough. He has that relationship. He has those children. He has that money. He is everything You need, just praise Him.
Father I praise You this morning. Before I say a word to anyone at all, my lips will bless Your Holy Name. There is no God like You in all the earth. None can compare to You. My trust and hope is in You always. I will watch as You deliver me from my enemy and set my feet upon the solid rock of my Salvation. Jesus, it’s in Your name and for Your glory, Amen.
