Love God, Get Enemies Destroyed

Focus: 2 Chronicles 20:22 - KJV

22. And when they began to sing and to praise, the LORD set ambushments against the children of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, which were come against Judah; and they were smitten.

2 Chronicles 20:20-23

It is that season again when the world celebrates “love” albeit without understanding what the depth of love is. When a man is in love, he can do anything for his lover and there is no greater love than for a man to lay down his life for his friend(s). Today, many will claim they are in love and they will buy gifts, presents and even a meal for their “lover” just to entice the fellow. When they do, the innocent being becomes swollen headed believing that he/she is truly loved. More often than not, he/she ends up being deceived and eventually deserted, unfortunately after he/she had been made vulnerable.

God deserves our love also. The way we show Him we love Him is to give Him what He prides the most, praise! When we give Him praise, He releases Himself to us. Jehoshaphat led Judah to praise Him, thereby showing Him love, and when He responded, Judah’s enemies rose against one another until they were fully exterminated. Like many men however, Judah after all the benefits of showing God love through praise, also abandoned Him as a result of which they were taken captive, later on. Love should be consistent and pure. God is not to be loved and jettisoned. Doing so means abandoning the source of life.

If we would love God completely and offer Him praise at all times like Jehoshaphat did, the enemies of our souls will find themselves in trouble always. We are to be true lovers to experience the best of love from Him. When we act like the worldly lovers and abandon Him after taking benefit of Him, we put ourselves in bad state by being exposed to the enemy. In that state of affairs that you seek to get out of, why not praise God in love and see what His love can yield to you. Very soon, even your enemies will come to bow to God, your lover.

SOLUTION: Take time to show God love always by giving Him quality praise regularly and not once in a while. Don’t be like those who only use their God for their benefit and abandon Him.

Father, we love you and will forever sing your praise. Please arise on our behalf and put the enemies of our souls in trouble for our sakes in Jesus’ name. Let our enemies eat their own flesh and drink their blood even as they fall into the pits, they have dug for us in Jesus’ name. Give us the grace to praise you forever more in Jesus mighty name.
