Power of Praise
2 Chronicles 20:21-22
After consulting the people, the King appointed singers to walk ahead of the army, singing to the Lord and praising Him for His Holy splendor. This is what they sang: "Give thanks to the Lord; His faithful love endures forever!" At the very moment they began to sing and give praise, the Lord caused the armies of Ammon, Moab and Mt.Seir to start fighting among themselves.
I am blown away at this story in 2 Chronicles 20!! I want to encourage you to read this story, because there is so much here. The Lord spoke to me, it has been about a year ago and He used scripture in this story to encourage me through a situation I was dealing with with one of my children. 2 Chronicles 20:17 says, But you will not even need to fight. Take your positions; then stand still and watch the Lord's victory. This spoke to me in such a way, it brought tears to my eyes and I was literally on my face before the Lord.
God hears the cries of His people and He showed up on my behalf that day, just like He showed up in this story and defeated the enemy for this king. When we have situations in our lives that arise, give it all to Jesus and begin to praise Him through the storms. He is faithful always!! And if you read the end of the book (Bible), the enemy is defeated!!!!! We WIN, because of Jesus!! Hallelujah!!
I am seeing the Lord move mightily in my life where I chose to take my position, like He said through this scripture. Believe me, I am human and fail so many times at this, but He continues to remind me who He is and who I am in Him. So take your positions and begin to praise like you have never praised before. The Lord will show up!!--Krista
