Singing a Song of War
We are in a fascinating new era. It is going to be fast-paced and fruitful. There will be challenges, but it will be important how we face those challenges. We have to remember that we are in the decade to open up our mouths! No more silent, hopeful petitions. It’s time to open the heavens and partner with the Lord in the earth, declaring and decreeing our way forward. Here’s an important revelation from Cindy Jacobs:
“This year in the Hebrew is 5780. There’s symbolism in this to help us understand what the Holy Spirit is saying. It’s not only a new era, but it is a year of the voice. Now what do we want to say about the year of the voice? 2 Chronicles 20:20 says:
‘So they rose early in the morning and went out into the Wilderness of Tekoa; and as they went out, Jehoshaphat stood and said, “Hear me, O Judah and you inhabitants of Jerusalem: Believe in the Lord your God, and you shall be established; believe His prophets, and you shall prosper.”’
“Then he goes on to talk about something that is very critical for this season:
“And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed those who should sing to the Lord, and who should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army and were saying: ‘Praise the Lord, for His mercy endures forever.’” (2 Chron. 20:21, NKJV)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
- Did you realize you can decree and declare in song? Shift your mindset to worship and praise differently.
- Our focus should always start with worship directed to God. Tell Him how wonderful He is!
- Now, declare His goodness, His might, His victorious, overcoming nature. Imagine the enemy listening to you extol the virtues of the Lord.
- Now, make it personal. What are you warring for? What does the Word say about that situation? Praise God for the outcome in advance!
- Did you listen to the State of the Union Address last night? Look for the transcript on whitehouse.gov. Praise God for the wonderful things He is orchestrating in our nation right now. National support for Life, guarantees of freedom of religion, alignment with Israel, and a strong economy and jobs. Among other things.
- Declare, “Let God arise, and our enemies be scattered!”
A prayer you can pray:
God, we praise You! You are worthy of all of our worship and honor and praise! You know our circumstances and have already provided a way out! We will open up our mouths in the midst of our enemies and we will extol Your virtues. You are holy, righteous, and glorious. You are merciful and kind. You are just and You redeem us from the traps the enemy lays for us. You are the way-maker. You put Your words in our mouths, so we hit the mark when we intercede. We will decree the decrees of the Lord and we will be victorious over all the works of the evil one against us. Teach us to war with those words from that place of intimacy with You. From under the shadow of Your wings, we will prevail. What can the enemy do to us? He cannot access us there.
We declare that the praises of God are a two-edged sword in our mouth. They cut the way open and they destroy all the works of darkness. Nothing is left behind that can stand in the way of Your plans. We decree that You are turning our nation around completely. Nothing the enemy can do can stop it! You are using President Trump to right so many wrongs of the past. He has committed to stand for Life and end abortion in America. He has been a strong advocate to end human trafficking. He has worked hard to strengthen our economy and put Americans to work again across all sectors – all Americans, every race, every neighborhood, city and rural, every age, male and female. He and his team are figuring out balanced and fair immigration standards, healthcare solutions, education options, the opiod crisis, diminishing student loan debt, and many other things. He has come alongside Israel and is helping form a workable solution to the Mid-East peace process. You are the reason. He is listening to Your people. He values prayer. Lord, President Trump is Your instrument, but we praise You for this turnaround! We say, “Our mighty God will vanquish all of our enemies! There is nothing they can do to stop You when You are on the move, Jesus!” Amen.
Let faith arise! Let our voices be heard in praise! Let our enemies be scattered!
