You will not need to fight in this battle. Position yourselves, stand still and see the salvation of the Lord, who is with you, O Judah and Jerusalem!’(2 Chron.20:17NKJV) ……with this promise from the Lord, the nations who rose against Judah and Jerusalem turned against one another until they completely destroyed themselves. It is my pleasure to welcome you to the last month in 2018 and I stand to affirm the above scripture that, “you will not need to fight any more battles”, for God will take up all your battles in Jesus name. Victory at times can come at a cost for instance Jephtah’s victory cost him the life of his only daughter (Judges 11); Samson’s came at the expense of his two eyes (Judges 16:28) however when we let God take up the reins of our affair including our battles then you are sure of a lasting victory such that nothing can be added to it and nothing can be removed from it. God’s victory is a complete victory that comes with security. Welcome to DECEMBER 2018! VICTORY & SAFETY! May the good Lord keep you safe and sound and give you victory over all the battles of your life. As the year gradually draws to a close, God will release His blessings upon your family and exempt you and yours from all evil. As you praise His Holy name, God will put any consortium against your destiny to flight in Jesus name.
In 2 Chron. 20 we see the potency of praise. Jehoshaphat got a report that some nations had gathered themselves together against him; there was no way or means of escape. He could not even attempt to fight them because his own army had been outnumbered and the situation was daunting however his response was epic. Jehoshaphat did what God expects us to do when confronted with trials. The bible recorded that Jehoshaphat turned to God and proclaimed a fast then he got the whole nation involved. Whenever there is a problem or a threat against your destiny, know that your response is crucial. Jehoshaphat spoke to the Lord reminding God of
Who He is, what He has done in the past and what He is capable of doing. This is an act of worship! When the devil come at you, let him know what your God is capable of doing! Finally and perhaps this is the straw that broke the Carmel’s back, Jehoshaphat appointed singers to go ahead of the army (2 Chron.20:21). What he did here was profound; you see God lives in the praises of His people (Ps. 22:3) so when praise went ahead God had no choice but to come down in His glory and when He appeared, confusion became the lot of the enemies and they turned on each other (2 Chron. 20:23).
Once in a while in the journey of life, one is bound to encounter opposition, confrontation, challenges or situations contrary to one’s expectation however none of these should take His praise out of your mouth because your victory is in your praise. When you praise God like Jehoshaphat and his people did, He will make you indestructible and unsinkable. No matter the gang up, God is equal to the task and able to fight both known and unknown enemies. You will not miss out on your victory in Jesus name. The Lord of Hosts will make the end of this year more glorious than the beginning. You will not be a casualty this year. Sorrow will not locate your abode. The Lord will frustrate the plans of the enemies concerning your destiny in Jesus name. As you praise God this month and beyond the Lord who has never lost a battle or a war will fight for you and make you a wonder unto many in Jesus name. Never let His praise depart from your mouth. Never lose your praise. There is GLORY AHEAD!!!
