2Ch 20:17,21-22 Ye shall not need to fight in this battle: set yourselves, stand ye still, and see the salvation of the LORD with you, O Judah and Jerusalem: fear not, nor be dismayed; to morrow go out against them: for the LORD will be with you.  And Jehoshaphat bowed his head with his face to the ground: and all Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem fell before the LORD, worshipping the LORD. 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.

We've been encouraged by numerous phone calls and emails in the past few days, telling us that people are praying and fasting for Israel and believers in the land – and we so appreciate it, more than words could ever express!

For the past 2 weeks, the "Chanukah" war has been front page news.  In this conflict some of the most sophisticated weapons ever developed are being deployed….,and yet the amazing truth is that we, as believers, have a weapon far more powerful and effective than any man-made weapon ever created – Worship!

Most of us worship God when things are going well.  And while worship can and should be a daily joyful exercise, and also an expression of praise for the Lord's victories,  remember that worship has also been commissioned by God's people as one of the weapons in our spiritual arsenal.

So we can learn something from Jehoshaphat.  He assigned worshipers to lead the armies into battle- and Israel crushed her enemies! Worship brought forth the victory in the midst of battle!

In the midst of your spiritual battle, learn the power of praise and the weaponry of worship, to disarm principalities and powers in heavenly places. When fears, doubt, discouragement, and despair threaten to overwhelm you – try warring with worship.  Learn to praise Him in the midst of the battle…and soon enough you'll be praising Him even more, for the victory!
