One of many best classes I’ve ever realized concerning the Christian life is the significance of reward and thanksgiving.
“And in the mean time they started to sing and to reward, the Lord precipitated the armies of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir to start preventing amongst themselves, and so they destroyed one another!” 2 Chronicles 20:22
The armies of Ammon, Moab and Mount Seir had declared struggle on King Jehoshaphat and the folks of Judah. So Jehoshaphat known as the folks collectively and prayed, “Oh, our God. Received’t you cease them. We have now no method to defend ourselves towards this mighty military. We don’t know what to do however we need to You.”
Then the Lord instructed the folks, “Don’t be afraid, don’t be paralyzed by this mighty military for the battle is just not yours, however God’s! Tomorrow, go down and assault them!…However you’ll not have to battle. Take your locations; stand quietly and see the unbelievable rescue operation God will carry out for you” (2 Chronicles 20:15-17).
After session with the leaders of the folks, Jehoshaphat decided that there ought to be a choir, clothed in sanctified clothes and singing the tune, “His Loving Kindness Is Perpetually,” main the march. As they walked alongside praising and thanking the Lord, He launched His mighty energy of their behalf.
One of many best classes I’ve ever realized concerning the Christian life is the significance of reward and thanksgiving. The higher the issue, the tougher the circumstances, the higher the disaster, the extra vital it’s to reward God always, to worship Him for who He’s; for His attributes of sovereignty, love, grace, energy, knowledge and would possibly; for the knowledge that He’ll battle for us, that He’ll display His supernatural assets in our behalf.
As within the case of Jehoshaphat and the folks of Judah once they started to reward God and He precipitated the three opposing armies to battle towards one another and destroy each other, God will battle for us if we belief and obey Him. There is no such thing as a higher method to display religion and obedience than to reward Him and to thank Him, even when our world is crumbling round us and the enemy is threatening to destroy. God honors reward. Hebrews 13:15 reminds us, “With Jesus’ assist, we are going to regularly supply our sacrifice of reward to God by telling others of the glory of His identify.”
Learn Psalm 136:1, 21-26
Lord, I’ll proceed to reward You and provides due to You for who You might be. When difficulties come up, I’ll reward You all of the extra and thank You for Your faithfulness. I’ll rely upon Your supernatural assets which allow me to dwell the supernatural life, whatever the circumstances. Amen.
