PRAISE IS A WEAPON
2 Chronicles 20:18-25 (22) – As they began to sing and praise, the Lord set ambushes against the men of Ammon and Moab and Mount Seir who were invading Judah, and they were defeated. (NIV)
Praise is one of the most potent but underrated weapons we have as believers. A genuine altar of worship carries the force of power, joy and favour (Acts 2:46-47; 16:16-40). Praise can also destroy any strongholds as exemplified in Joshua 6. In Jericho, the gates were shut against Israel, and nobody could go in or out. But, at the shout of praise, the wall fell flat. I am decreeing in the name of Jesus, as your praises ascend to heaven, every obstruction to your breakthroughs, shall scatter.
Further, in today’s Bible reading, when Judah was to battle Ammon, Moab and mount Seir, Jehoshaphat only appointed praise singers unto God and all their enemies fought themselves to death. I am praying again, as you render glorious worship to the Lord, your mockers and shame shall expire, in Jesus’ name. Therefore, I urge you to engage more in praises to possess what belongs to you. Deliberately use your worship as an entry-point to God’s presence (Psalms 100). He will hearken to you!
Beloved, this final day of our Fasting and Praise programme, ensure to worship God with understanding and make it daily.
