MEMORISE: 2 Chronicles 20:22
“And after they started to sing and to reward, the Lord set ambushments in opposition to the youngsters of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, which had been come in opposition to Judah; they usually had been smitten.”
READ: 2 Chronicles 20:18-22 (KJV)
18. And Jehoshaphat bowed his head along with his face to the bottom; and all Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem fell earlier than the LORD, worshipping the LORD.
19. And the Levites, of the youngsters of the Kohathites, and of the youngsters of the Korhites, stood as much as reward the LORD God of Israel with a loud voice on excessive.
20. They usually rose early within the morning, and went forth into the wilderness of Tekoa; and as they went forth, Jehoshaphat stood and mentioned, Hear me, O Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem; Consider within the LORD your God, so shall ye be established; consider his prophets, so shall ye prosper.
21. And when he had consulted with the folks, he appointed singers unto the LORD, and that ought to reward the great thing about holiness, as they went out earlier than the military, and to say, Reward the LORD; for his mercy endureth for ever.
22. And after they started to sing and to reward, the LORD set ambushments in opposition to the youngsters of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, which had been come in opposition to Judah; they usually had been smitten.
The problem of reward and worship can’t be over-emphasized. As a matter of reality, the first and authentic cause God created man and certainly all issues for His pleasure as we see in Revelation four:10-11:
The 4 and twenty elders fall down earlier than him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth without end, and forged their crowns earlier than the throne, saying, Thou artwork worthy, O Lord, to obtain glory and honour and energy for thou hast created all issues, and for thy pleasure they’re and had been created.
Even if we’re created for the aim of praising and worshipping God, the Lord nonetheless each day hundreds us with advantages (Psalm 68:19). Considered one of these advantages is the victory that God offers to us once we sing His reward, in response to our Bible studying at the moment.
One other factor we should be taught from at the moment’s studying is that the Bible says:
…he appointed singers unto the Lord, and that ought to reward the great thing about holiness… – (2 Chronicles 20:21)
It’s not all so-called reward and worship singers who’re real and acceptable unto the Lord; some are unto the flesh. I’ve usually instructed my youngsters within the religion that they need to be conscious of the kind of tune they sing within the title of reward or worship. A few of these songs are from the pit of hell, coated in Christian lyrics. Any tune, show, dance, drama or normal murals that promotes promiscuity is unacceptable within the sight of God and can do the other of what real songs of reward and worship do. Our tune ought to come from a pure coronary heart, its presentation void of pleasure and ulterior motives.
It’s unlucky that the origins of some so-called songs of reward and worship are demonic shrines. They’re so melodious and we embrace them with out realizing the implication. From at the moment, allow us to permit the Holy Spirit to offer us songs that the Trinity will respect. Allow us to sing of the great thing about God’s holiness for irreversible victory over adversaries. It is just when our reward or worship is really impressed by the Holy Spirit that it will probably certainly be an indomitable weapon of religious warfare.
Decide to praising and worshipping God at all times.
