2 Chronicles 20:22-23 – Now when they began to sing and praise, the Lord set ambushes against the people…and they were defeated…they helped to destroy one another (NKJV).
As Judah faced impending doom, Jehoshaphat went to the Lord in prayer for help. God gave the king an unconventional strategy: Station the worshipers on the front lines and praise in the victory. As they obeyed, the enemy proceeded to kill itself off!
Nothing gives the enemy more fits than a believer who lifts up a shout of praise in the midst of adversity. He doesn’t know what to do when you rejoice right in his face. Your praises confuse Satan and expose his incompetence; they remind him that he has already lost.
Your adversary is very real. Jesus said that his desire is to steal, kill, and destroy. Unbelievers are not his primary target. You are his greatest threat. Don’t allow him to shut your mouth. The rout is in your rejoicing! The win is in your worship, and the victory is in your voice!! Glory!!!
Deuteronomy 20:4 – For the Lord your God is going with you! He will fight for you against your enemies, and He will give you victory! (NLT)
