    No one puts new wine into old wine skins, or else the new wine will burst the skins, and it will be spilled, and the skins will be destroyed. But new wine must be put into fresh wine skins, and both are preserved. Luke 5:37-38 WEB (Paralleled in: Matthew 9:17, Mark 2:22).The most radical change rec...

The Kingdom Express

  • 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 WEB.

    A great army comprised of troops from several countries invaded Israel, and King Jehoshaphat became scared. The situation looked hopeless, for his little army was vastly outnumbered. King Jehoshaphat went to the Lord in prayer, and the Lord gave him a fresh direction. A bizarre plan. He brought out the choir in their holy attire and sent them before his army. They were on the front lines, singing, "Give thanks to the Lord for His steadfast love endures forever."

    The approaching praise team coming over the hill had to look completely insane to the enemy troops. They were probably whistling to themselves while sharpening their axes, daydreaming about all the loot they would soon be gathering when they sacked Jerusalem. Then here comes a group of singers.

    Yet, when Jehoshaphat's choir began to sing praises to God, He turned the enemy troops against one another. They attacked each other in an utter state of confusion and wiped themselves out. Not a single enemy escaped the slaughter. The army of Israel didn't have to kill anyone, and it took them three days to gather all the spoils.

    There was a vast amount of food, medicine, armor, weapons, clothing, and precious jewelry. All of this was "delivered" right to their door by the enemy troops. The Israelites spent a long time thanking God for this incredible blessing. The giant enemy army they were so afraid of turned out to just be delivery boys. God's people faced the enemy, but God won the battle for them, and He gave them quite a blessing.

    If you are facing an impossible situation today, don't neglect to praise God. Face the trouble with a smile. Praise (halal) means to flash, radiate, shine, and make the Lord look good! Lord, you are Awesome!

    God's way is not our way, for it is far better. It just may be that your impossible situation is a great blessing in disguise, delivered right to your door by the Kingdom Express.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I know that You are in control, and I am going to praise You in the storm. I am going to dance in the rain. I don't have to understand everything, for I know that You do. Please help me focus on the right things, and I will trust You with the rest. I love You, and thank You today. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!

    Note: 'Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God.' (Philippians 4:6-7) ~ If you have a prayer need, we are here for you! We and the prayer team are ready to lift you up at our private prayer page: RHM Prayer Network
