2 Chronicles 20:22 New International Version (NIV)
As they began to sing and praise, the Lord set ambushes against the men of Ammon and Moab and Mount Seir who were invading Judah, and they were defeated.
SING AND PRAISE ~
God defeated the enemy
Is there something in your life you need to let God handle? Maybe you just need to sing and praise to let God handle it. Taking things into our own hands is not always good. There is a fine balance in life and knowing when to speak or not to speak. God have given us wisdom and knowledge in life. Let us remember the Ocean and it's waves. Let us remember the story of singing and praise to move God. Just like the Ocean, behind the scenes of your life is a big GOD who is working things out.
Proverbs 3:5-6 New International Version (NIV)5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
6 in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight.
Waves of life changes us
It was in the Ocean waves that took myself and others into it's water. It was 2004 and my family was on vacation in Cabo. Walking along the sand and suddenly pulled into the waters. We later found out there was a Tsunami and my life changed. It was in the waters that I spoke to God. I remember saying this, "If I had another chance, I would teach and do what you have called me too". The short version of this testimony is this, God brought me out and my family too. It changed me inside and I began to give thanks to God everyday of life. I began to say, "I LOVE YOU" to those I care about more. I said YES to God and came back to start treating a Wednesday class in that same year. I started writing this blog soon after and know the importance of trusting the Lord.
What will it take for you to say yes to God? I hope you already have and know that daily each choice you make is value. There are times that Ocean waves can over power us and we know who is in control. Just like life, don't let the moment take you away from God but let it push you into God. Singing his praise does defeat the enemy of your soul. The devil goes about to take you out of God's will but let us remember that is can not win. God has given us free will to trust the Lord and free will to surrender our lives to him. Hold on for God to restore and complete things you are waiting for in life. God says this: Psalm 37:4 Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
