Discussing "Praise, As A Weapon Of Warfare"

We are continually fighting conflicts, and praise, aside from holiness, is the most powerful weapon we have. When you're fighting against obstacles that are simply too tremendous to overcome, the only way to triumph is to praise God. Jehoshaphat's strategy was to do just that. He realized he had little chance of defeating three powerful kings, so instead of convening a meeting with his army's general to devise strategies, he went to God in praise.

“And they said to him, 'O LORD, God of our fathers, are you not God in heaven?' And do you not rule over all the pagan kingdoms? Isn't there power and might in thine hand, so that no one can stand against thee?” – 2 Chronicles 20:6

Jehoshaphat addressed the Most High God with these words. There's no way God could hear such adoration from one of His children and ignore the other. When Jehoshaphat finished, God said to him, "Don't worry, kid, I'll fight this battle alone." You fight your battles when you pray, but God fights for you when you praise. Jehoshaphat sent singers to the battleground instead of soldiers on the day of the war. The memory verse for today is:

“And the LORD arranged ambushments against the children of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir, who were coming against Judah, and they were smitten.”

All of their foes had been destroyed by the time they arrived on the battlefield; all they had to do now was capture the spoils of war. All your enemies will be destroyed as you sing and praise God from now on.

If you've already been taken by the enemy, imprisoned, and tied, praise is the only way out. Ask Paul and Silas if you don't believe me (Acts 16:25-34). When you're in a difficult circumstance, use praise as a weapon. Praise has never let me down in the past. In the powerful name of Jesus, it will not fail you either.
