Commentary from Pastor Michael White:

And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed those who should sing to the Lord, and who should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army and were saying: “Praise the Lord, for His mercy endures forever.” Now when they began to sing and to praise, the Lord set ambushes against the people of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir, who had come against Judah; and they were defeated. – 2 Chron 20:21-22

When you praise, the Lord defeats your enemies.

Judah was scared. An enemy army was approaching that was far more powerful than anyone they had ever faced. But they sought the Lord. They gathered for corporate prayer and fasting, and God spoke. He told them to be still, because He had already won the fight! He told them to praise before the victory had even been won!

The people of Judah praised their way to victory. Because of their praise, they didn’t have to lift a sword. They praised in advance of the victory, and God delivered their enemies into their hand.

No matter what you are going through, praise Him! As you lift up your voice and praise God, He will deliver your enemies into your hand.


Father, thank You for victory over every adversary! Whenever I feel threatened, remind me to praise. I know that when I praise You, You will cause me to be victorious in Jesus’ name.
