At the very moment they began to sing and give praise, the Lord caused the armies of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir to start fighting among themselves. 2 Chronicles 20:22 NLT
Confusion is made for comedy. When you are at the circus, it’s funny when the clowns can’t figure out what to do next. When they should go left, they go right and the crowd roars with laughter. They try to fix something and they approach it in the most ridiculous way, and again the crowd roars with laughter. After all, watching an adult who can’t determine that a hat belongs on his head and not his feet; is funny. There are some places in life that confusion is not funny.
Soldiers in training are never funny. Getting ready for battle is not the time to go left when you should go right. Confusion on the battle field can be deadly. So the military spends time training their troops so that they would know exactly what to do at any given moment in battle. But there are some things that you will never find in the training manual. Now, when the armies of Judah and Jerusalem were ready to go into battle, the generals had their plans; they discussed and decided the best way to deploy their troops. But something strange happened; the king gave the strangest command, instead of the warriors leading the charge, he sent the singers to walk ahead of the army. This is what they sang, “Give thanks to the Lord; his faithful love endures forever!”
Well, that was the best offensive weapon in history. When the singers began to praise God, God sent confusion into the enemy’s camp. Career soldiers could not identify the enemy! They started to attack each other. Verse 24 says, “So when the army of Judah arrived at the lookout point in the wilderness, all they saw were dead bodies lying on the ground as far as they could see. Not a single one of the enemy had escaped.” When you face the enemies in your life, don’t sit and cry. Get your praise on! When you praise God, He will cause confusion and give you victory.
Thought for Today: Friend, God works when you praise Him.
Have a blessed day and walk in faith and victory.
