Memorise :
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

Read : 2 Chronicles 20:21-24

21 And when he had consulted with the people, he
appointed singers unto the LORD, and that should
praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out
before the army, and to say, Praise the LORD; for
his mercy endureth for ever.

22 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.

23 For the children of Ammon and Moab stood up
against the inhabitants of mount Seir, utterly to slay
and destroy them: and when they had made an end
of the inhabitants of Seir, every one helped to
destroy another.

24 And when Judah came toward the watch tower
in the wilderness, they looked unto the multitude,
and, behold, they were dead bodies fallen to the
earth, and none escaped.

Message
Victory is generally presented in the Bible as an act
of God. From Genesis to Revelation, God is always
presented as the source of all victory, which He
grants to those who obey His commands and out
their trust and confidence in Him. Wherever you
turn to in the Scripture, the principle holds true.
And having spoiled principalities and powers, he
made a show of them openly, triumphing over then
in it. Colossians 2:15
In essence, God has destroyed the value and
quality of our enemies and has also put their
failure,disgrace and shame in open display for all to
see. Victory is always presented in the Bible as
achieved by God without human intervention. This
reality make it absolutely necessary to praise God
whenever we are confronted by the enemy,
knowing that victory is assured in Jesus’ name.
The Bible also presents praise as a spiritual
language that can reach beyond the intellect to
touch the heart of God. Whenever God wants to do
something really supernatural, He calls for an army
of musical warriors, to bombard the stronghold of
the enemy. Such was the case in the time of
Jehoshaphat King of Judah who deployed divine
Warriors, an army worshippers, to march into battle
with musical instruments in their hands and songs
of praises in their mouths. As they praised and
worshipped God, he rose on their behalf and
completely destroyed all their enemies. 2 Chronicles
20:22 says
“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.”
What I know for sure is that if you praise God, His
enemies cannot standby. Some 30 years ago, we
went to Otukpo town in the middle region of Nigeria
for a programme, with some students. I planned to
talk on divine healing. Then , we began to praise
God so intensely that the glory of God descended
and I forgot every other Scripture I had planned for
the next sermon except Luke 1:37. Suddenly, there
were clusters of students kneeling and praying in
tongues though they had never heard of the Holy
Ghost baptism before. Others joined them praying in
tongues and the end of the day I could not preach.
Go ahead now, praise God until you bring down His
glory.

Key Point :
As you worship God today, He will arise and scatter
all your enemies in the mighty name of Jesus.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR : Mark 7:1-9:13 and Job
18:20-19:12
