Sing and Praise

 

 

There is a fantastic account of God’s power and faithfulness in the book of 2 Chronicles.

King Jehoshaphat learned that he and his people were going to be attacked by an army. He proclaimed a fast and the people gathered together to seek help from the LORD.

A man in their midst was moved by God to speak. He told them not to be afraid because the battle was not theirs, but God’s. Here is an excerpt from the passage:

You will not have to fight this battle. Take up your positions; stand firm and see the deliverance the LORD will give you, O Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Go out to face them tomorrow, and the LORD will be with you.’”

 Jehoshaphat bowed with his face to the ground, and all the people of Judah and Jerusalem fell down in worship before the LORD. Then some Levites from the Kohathites and Korahites stood up and praised the LORD, the God of Israel, with a very loud voice.

  Early in the morning they left for the Desert of Tekoa. As they set out, Jehoshaphat stood and said, “Listen to me, Judah and people of Jerusalem! Have faith in the LORD your God and you will be upheld; have faith in his prophets and you will be successful.”  After consulting the people, Jehoshaphat appointed men to sing to the LORD and to praise him for the splendor of his holiness as they went out at the head of the army, saying:

   “Give thanks to the LORD,
   for his love endures forever.”

  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.–2 Chronicles 20:17-22

 

There are times when we face battles.

They may not be actual military conflicts, but they are battles, just the same.

Battles with depression.

Battles with health.

Battles with unemployment.

Battles with divorce.

Whatever the struggle, it is a real one for you.

Sometimes I sing to God and play the piano.

A few months ago, I felt that a tremendous attack was coming to our family.

My husband and I sat at the piano and we sang songs of praise to God as I played.

Song after song, we continued.

God was the only One who could stop the "army."

The next time you are facing an attack, pray out loud.

Sing praise.

Play an instrument if you have one!

You may find that God is ambushing the enemy and delivering you from his snare.

"Give thanks to the LORD for His love endures forever." –from 2 Chronicles 20:21

    The dance of the Sandhill Crane occurs all through the year, not just during courtship.

    As children, we were once like that, weren’t we?

    We would jump up and down with glee at the sight of a new puppy, a birthday cake or a giant rainbow.
