Today’s inspiration: “The Lord answered, “Judah shall go up; I have given the land into their hands.” Judges 1:2 NIV. Judah in Hebrew means “to Praise” or to “to Thank” the Lord in Worship. For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 2 Corinthians 10:3-4. In all the ages of battles, the frontage of an army is always drums, horns, flags, and instruments of warfare which strategies, strengthens, tightens and unite the spirit of the soldiers with faith, courage, and victory.
Worship is not about singing songs or dance but warfare in the Spirit. King Jehoshaphat faced three different frontages of attacks from the Moabites, Ammonites and Edomites. His strategy wasn’t the strength of his armies, not was on the cleverness of his advisers, and definitely wasn’t his own wisdom. We may currently face stress, troubles and crisis far beyond our capacity to solve or resolve. But the prophetic word this day is saying,” Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God’s.” 2 Chronicles 20:15. Remember how God pulled down the walls of Jericho for Joshua through worship around the city for 7 days and routed the Midianites for Gideon with 300 trumpet praises. Judges 7:22. Glory to God!
Prayer: O Lord my God, lead me deeper into your presence in worship, prayer, and thanksgiving in my heart. Surround me with your loving kindness and embrace me with your grace and merciful hands. Let my heart break out with a new song of breakthrough in Christ my Lord, my victory, and my success. Let all my mourning be turned into dancing, and all my plight into praises! For I proclaim, “All blockages, bondages, and breaches of the enemies like the Egyptians I shall see it no more by the might of Yeshua, in Jesus' Name, Amen.
