Weapon of Worship
“Thus says the Lord to you, ‘Do not be afraid and do not be dismayed at this great horde, for the battle is not yours but God’s. Tomorrow go down against them. Behold, they will come up by the ascent of Ziz. You will find them at the end of the valley, east of the wilderness of Jeruel. You will not need to fight in this battle. Stand firm, hold your position, and see the salvation of the Lord on your behalf, O Judah and Jerusalem.’ Do not be afraid and do not be dismayed. Tomorrow go out against them and the Lord will be with you.” -2 Chronicles 20: 15-17
Before The Battle:
  1. He speaks to their fears
  2. God is specific on how the enemy will attack
  3. God reminds them they won’t have to fight in the battle
4) He calls them to obedience

“And when he had taken counsel with the people, he appointed those who were to sing to the Lord and praise him in holy attire, as they went before the army, and say, ‘Give thanks to the Lord, for his steadfast love endures forever.’ And when they began to sing and praise, the Lord set an ambush against the men of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir, who had come against Judah, so they were routed. For the men of Ammon and Moab rose against the inhabitants of Mount Seir, devoting them to destruction and when they had made an end of the inhabitants of Seir, they all helped destroy one another… none had escaped.” -2 Chronicles 20:21-23
During the Battle
  1. He moves in to fight for them
- Their worship preceded their victory
  1. God completely defeated the enemy

Things that can weaken our weapon of worship:
1) You are surrendered to the wrong thing
“Yet you are holy, enthroned on the praises of Israel.” - Psalm 22:3
  • When you worship you invite Victory Himself into your battle
  • You are one surrender away from victory

2) Your eyes on the promise not the Promise Keeper
- We don’t worship God because we’ve gotten what we want; we worship God because HE is what we want.
- “For we are powerless against this great horde that is coming against us. We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you.” -2 Chronicles 20:12
3) We are defining God by our circumstances
      • God doesn’t change when your circumstances do


4
) We are praising out of obligation not revelation

-He is limitless so if you get bored of worshipping you took your eye off of Him
