No Tail Tucking!


Because of their loud praise to and for God, Judah’s army totally forfeited the element of surprise as they marched toward their enemy aka their lion aka their terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. (2nd Chronicles 20) Why is that such a big deal? Well, military strategists tell us that nothing is more important in battle than achieving the element of surprise. If your enemy does not know that you are coming, perhaps the shock of that first assault will help you win the day. However, Judah’s army marched down the road toward their problem, led by a male chorus, singing at the top of their lungs and everyone … including their lion … knew that they were coming. I can hear them even now, “Watch out enemy, here we come, or better yet, watch out enemy, here God comes!”

God’s people knew that the element of surprise was not necessary!

God was faithful and the enemy could do nothing about it! Church, God is still faithful and the lion aka our terrible, no good, very bad days can do nothing about it! God’s people knew that God was far too big for them to worry about the element of surprise and that God was far too big for them to tuck tail and run!

Folks, we must be reminded today that God is far too big for us to worry about the element of surprise and that God is far too big for us to tuck tail and run.
