Your day is never complete without God’s Word; start it right. Read and share all devotionals within this month of Commanding Praise
*WHAT IS COMMANDING PRAISE?*
This is a necessary exposition on the theme of the month; it is important that you understand it and know what to do within this month.
_*2 Chronicles 20:21-22*_
21. 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._
_22. 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._
*Background – Enemy Attack*
From vs 1 we get to know that 3 nations came to attack God’s people.
Collectively they were so many such that they were described in separate times as *multitude* and *great company*.
_*Whatever attacks or difficult positions you have suffered throughout the year, your deliverance is here in December*_
*Consult God during adversity*
Fear gripped the people and they came consulted God together, with their wives and children.
This should let you see how serious the case was; the people of God faced annihilation – a total wipe out.
Always consult God in your moments of difficulty; His ears are constantly open to the cry of the righteous.
No other nation came to defend or save the people of God; a small nation facing 3 gigantic nations.
_*2 Chronicles 20:17*_
_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._
Listen to what God said; God is taking over the battles you have faced and still facing this month.
*Commanding Praise – Praise Your Way Out*
A choir was formed and they went before the army with praise; as they sang, the three nations started to fight against themselves until they completely destroyed each other.
_*Your praise this month, December 2018, is commanding your enemies to fight against themselves.*_
It took them 3 days to gather the spoil from their enemies.
A commanding praise is a praise in faith to the point where God is moved to take over your situation and display His Power.
Vs 29: and the fear of God was on all the Kingdoms of those countries
Enough with the long prayer requests and crying; this is the time to praise God and watch your enemies destroy themselves.
*God is giving you victory over every difficult situation this month through Praise *
