Summary: Praise will defeat our enemies.
Thank you Rev. Giertz
Judah Will Lead You
Judges 1:1-2 Now after the death of Joshua it came to pass, that the children of Israel asked the LORD, saying, Who shall go up for us against the Canaanites first, to fight against them? 2 And the LORD said, Judah shall go up: behold, I have delivered the land into his hand.
Strong leadership carried the Children of Israel through years of wandering, many miracles, and conquering the majority of the Promised Land.
Moses :: They had to fight in battle. Joshua was on the ground and Moses was in the mountain. As his hands were raised the army won when they dropped the army lost. Victory was contingent on Moses. He called the place Jehovah-Nissi (God my banner).
Joshua :: He lead the siege against Jericho and many other enemy. He received the instructions from God and then carried out the orders he was given. Doing it Gods way meant sure victory!
The Children of Israel asked, who will lead us in the fight? The Lords response was Judah; Ive already given him the victory.
Too many times we are waiting for that one person or that one thing that will give us victory. It is time to stopped being spiritually carried and move into the dimension that God has called you to.
Judah means praise. God has given victory to Praise.
Doubt doesnt have the victory.
Self-pity doesnt have the victory.
Reservation and rationality do not possess the battle.
God said, Ive given the battle to Judah (PRAISE).
Praise doesnt care if it is sunny or stormy.
Praise doesnt care if there are more of them and less of you.
Praise hears no complaint, and has no surrender.
Praise has the victory!
Praise has already decided, I will bless the LORD at all times, His praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul shall make her boast in the LORD.
