And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed singers unto the Lord , and that should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army, and to say, Praise the Lord ; for his mercy endureth for ever. And when they began to sing and to praise, the Lord set ambushments against the children of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, which were come against Judah; and they were smitten.” 2 Chronicles 20:21-22 KJV

Praise and worship to God Almighty releases ambush against our enemies. It is not about what the enemy is doing or trying to do, it is all about whether you can still praise and worship God Almighty well in midst of it all. That’s is our weapon of war in trials and persecutions. Also praise and worship brings God  into the scene to act on our behalf against our enemies  in Jesus Christ mighty name.

To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord , that he might be glorified.” Isaiah 51:3 KJV

That’s why the bible says: “the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness.” The praise here is not praise to ourselves but unto the Lord.  We most of the time feel heavy within us in trying times.  That’s why we must learn to praise God Almighty well in these times, for it is our weapon of war in Jesus Christ mighty name.

Let’s pray together:

Heavenly Father I thank You for Your word. No matter what the enemy may try to do, I will praise and worship You forever. You are always so good and merciful to me in Jesus Christ mighty name. Amen.
