As a worship leader, I’m always partial toward scripture that references music. But even if I weren’t a musician, one can’t help but see a correlation between praise and victory.
When they began to sing and praise, the Lord set an ambush against the men of Ammon, Moab, and the Mount Seir, who had come against Judah, so that they were routed.
2 Chronicles 20:22 (ESV)
Remember, too, in Joshua (6:20), that it was a shout of praise that took the city of Jericho down.
When God’s people praise, great things happen. When we recognise God for who and what He is and let the world know, He stands up for us. He fights for us.
For the battle is not yours but God’s.
2 Chronicles 20:15b (ESV)
Instead of putting on our battle gear, maybe we, as the chosen children of God, should just stand up and praise God for what He has done and what we know He can do.
The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.
Exodus 14:14 (NKJV)
