(Activate God’s Power Through Praise)
👤 Pastor Chris
📖 TO THE BIBLE
2 Chronicles 20:21-22 TLB “After consultation with the leaders of the people, he determined that there should be a choir leading the march, clothed in sanctified garments and singing the song “His Loving-Kindness Is Forever” as they walked along praising and thanking the Lord! And at the moment they began to sing and to praise, the Lord caused the armies of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir to begin fighting among themselves, and they destroyed each other!
◀ LET’S TALK
Three nations—Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir—had come out against Judah and were ready to attack her. The people of Judah became frantic and began to cry out in fear. However, their king, Jehoshaphat, decided to gather all the people together for a prayer and fasting meeting. As they prayed, God revealed to them the exact location of their enemies’ camp, and gave them a very unique strategy to defeat them: they were not to fight but to sing praises to His Name!
2 Chronicles 20:22 TLB says, “And at the moment they began to sing and to praise, the Lord caused the armies of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir to begin fighting among themselves, and they destroyed each other!” The enemies didn’t know what hit them as Judah praised God. You can activate the power of praise just as king Jehoshaphat did; when trouble strikes, praise the Lord and you’ll stir up confusion in satan’s camp.
You don’t have to wait till you feel like singing before you do; just go ahead and make melodies or sing praises to the Lord. No matter how difficult the situation you’re facing seems, praise God in spite of it; He’s bigger than all your challenges combined. Everything is working out for your good, so don’t give up! It’s time you offered to God some unusual praise. Speak and sing joyous tongues of praise and thanksgiving, and as you do, the power of God will move on your behalf, and you’ll have a great miracle.

Dear Lord, I rejoice in you, for you’re the only true and wise God; you’re the King of kings, and Lord of lords! Thank you for making my life beautiful, and for crowning me with victory and success, all the days of my life. Amen.
