Get Out Front!

There was some loud singing going on!

Look with me at 2ne Chronicles 20:21, “After consulting the people, Jehoshaphat appointed men to sing to the LORD and to praise him for the splendor of his holiness as they went out at the head of the army, saying: ‘Give thanks to the LORD, for his love endures forever.’”

Can you imagine the sight?

The army of Judah was on the march. Thousands of men were armed for battle. Who was positioned at the front of the army? Not the scouts! Not the archers! Not the infantry, but instead, the “praisers” were leading the way! God’s people ramped up the praise and placed the “praisers” out in front!

A breakthrough was about to happen! God was about to give His people the victory! Why? Because Judah made praise a priority! WE MUST DO THE SAME!  Let everything that has breathe praise the Lord!

Do you need a breakthrough? Do you need a victory?

…a breakthrough in regards to some circumstance, pattern of thinking or personality … a victory in regards to your own Christian experience! Folks, breakthroughs and victories come when God is adequately praised! We need not be in such a hurry today. If we want to see serious wins in the days ahead, we must ramp up the praise and put the ”praisers” out in front! Nothing is more important!

Who is willing to lead the way? Who is willing to praise God with me through the good times and the bad?

Judah did not zip themselves in their tents and wish for the best when the enemy came against them, but instead, they ramped up the praise and put the “praisers” out in front and God gave His people a blow out win! Instead of focusing in on our unfortunate situations, let us all start praising God because He giveth more grace when the burdens grow greater. Just ask the people of Judah!  Let us not lock ourselves in the closest when the wind begins to blow and pull away from everyone and everything, but instead, let us ramp up our praise and put the “praisers” out in front!
