Total Eclipse

  • When they began to sing and to praise, Yahweh set ambushers against the children of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir, who had come against Judah; and they were struck. For the children of Ammon and Moab stood up against the inhabitants of Mount Seir to utterly kill and destroy them. When they had finished the inhabitants of Seir, everyone helped to destroy each other. 2 Chronicles 20:22'23 WEB.

    "God sure sounds needy," I was thinking to myself as the preacher explained that God required us to worship Him. Now I was just a kid, but already something didn't seem right for the Almighty God, The Creator of the universe, the Maker of the stars, to need little ol' me to worship Him. I mean, what's up with that? Why does the Almighty God need us to worship Him? Is He insecure in some way?

    As I grew older and life happened to me, I learned that it's not about God Almighty needing anything from anyone. He's bigger than that. It's about us and our focus in this life. When we begin to magnify God in praise and worship, changes start to happen in our own lives. God becomes real to us, and His presence becomes tangible. He becomes bigger, and our problems become smaller.

    Praising God brings the atmosphere of heaven to Earth, and it drives demons mad. If you praise Him long enough, He will show up just as He did with Jehoshaphat. When they began to praise God, their enemies turned on each other, and Israel spent the next three days picking up free stuff. A very dark situation worked out better than anyone could have hoped for when they began to praise God.

    We live in a darkening world, yet God will have the final say. So don't let what's on the news shape your view of God's power. We should never limit God to our past experience, for He can do something new. In the end, every knee will bow, and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord of All (Philippians 2:11).

    They say the sun is about 400 times larger than the moon, yet the moon can completely block out the sun during a total eclipse. It becomes all that you can see. Because it's closer to us, the moon can appear bigger than the sun.

    Problems work much the same way. When you begin to focus on your concerns, they will grow bigger and bigger. In your mind, God will shrink smaller and smaller. When you praise God, focus on Him and His word, then He will grow bigger, and your problems will grow smaller.

    So praise the Lord today, and don't focus on circumstances you can't change. They are only distractions. Spend time praising and thanking God for what He has already done in your life and for the things He has blessed you with. Trust Him, and remember what He has already done for you. Your future is in good hands. God loves you, and He is at least 400 times bigger than your problems.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, please help me see past the problems. I know that You created the heavens and the Earth and that you control what happens in my life. Please let Your peace rest on me today. Send the Comforter to me. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!
