POWER of PRAISE 

Hi There Friends, if you’re facing difficulty of any kind or size, begin to sing songs of praise to the Lord, and you will see your enemies defeated. Not only that, but your heart will be lifted, and you will sense a peace inside like nothing you have known. God wants to restore the peace you have lost. If you will let Him, He will give you a fresh touch of His peace, love, and grace when you praise Him. it is truly Awesome!

Check this out…….”O Lord, the God of our fathers . . . Power and might are in Your hand. . . . We are powerless before this great multitude . . . nor do we know what to do, but our eyes are on You.” (2 Chronicles 20:6-12)

so in this passage, we read that the nation of Judah had just received horrible news; that a vast army was gathering to destroy them and King Jehoshaphat, had no idea how they could survive such a vicious attack.

However, he did know there was only one person he could turn to, and that was God. God quickly answered his prayer and He told him the battle was not Judah’s but His. Then the Lord set up the battle plan and instead of warriors leading the way, God instructed the king to place the choir up front and march into battle singing praises to His name.

I would have loved to have seen the king’s face when he heard that plan, No arrows or tar-and-pitch rockets were to fly through the air—only praises to God.

Regardless of what he felt inside, the king’s actions demonstrated that he trusted God as he obeyed the Lord. Before Judah reached the battlefield, God had thrown the enemy into such confusion that they turned on one another.

The army of Judah never lifted a bow because God defeated its enemies.

POWER of WORSHIP
Right, now Worship is one of the many weapons God has given us that is not of this world, they are not carnal, weak or powerless but they are powerful! Spiritual weapons given to us by God to “…demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ”– 2 Corinthians 10:5.
We learn of two men in the Bible who were arrested and put in prison, Paul and Silas (Acts 16:25-26). The Bible tells us that at midnight instead of becoming depressed, worrying about their problems or allowing their situation to get them down they start to sing praises unto God and suddenly
“there was such a violent earthquake that the foundations of the prison were shaken. At once all the prison doors flew open, and everyone’s chains came loose.” (vs 26).
Notice what happened when two men started to praise God? Chains started to break off and not only theirs but all those around them. That’s the power of your worship. When you get out of self and forget about what you are going through chains or yokes will start to fall off you.
You must guard your mouth because no matter what you say, you are launching weapons of one sort or another.
