Victory in the Battle

You can be certain that you will win when you begin the battle in worship. One reference would be II Chronicles 20:18-29. When you focus on who God is, the grip of the enemy on your life loosens. Philippians 4:8 tells us what we should focus our minds on. If you are experiencing a trial and feel like you are in the battle of your life, please be encouraged to lift up the banner of praise to the Lord and move into deep worship as His Spirit and yours join.

One of the ways to begin is to just start saying the names of the Lord and what attributes they denote. I think we can get so hung up on trying to please the Lord and say things just right that we get robbed of this precious level of intimacy and powerful tool that He has placed in our hands or more accurately in our mouths.

When you focus on how big God is, you really start getting perspective on how powerful He is to intervene, make a way and save you just in time.

When you begin to know who you are in Him, you become a more worshipful being because you become so grateful and fall so deeply in love.

When you realize that the Creator of the Universe is looking directly into your eyes and holding your heart while planning only good things for you, it is easier to worship.

But getting back to the battle, tough times happen. However, the more that you offer up your worship, the quicker you will choke out the influence that the enemy has. You will also see perspective as to what you have learned from the battle and the gift that it has been. Even things that the Lord does not send, He can use!

The Word says that the power of life and death is in the tongue. That means that our words have the ability to create. So, why not work in concert with the Holy Spirit on your behalf through worship and see things start to come alive including long dreamed dreams that you thought would never be manifest? By the same token, be not surprised if you are speaking negatively that you are prolonging the pain and actually giving materials to the enemy and his camp so that they can thwart those dreams that God has put in you.

Speak life. Worship, even when you want to wail in pain. Call those things that are not as though they are, as the Word tells us to. And be encouraged, Worshiper!!!
