Joshua 6:15-16, 20-21
15 But it came to pass on the seventh day that they rose early, about the dawning of the day, and marched around the city seven times in the same manner. On that day only they marched around the city seven times. 16 And the seventh time it happened, when the priests blew the trumpets, that Joshua said to the people: “Shout, for the Lord has given you the city!
So the people shouted when the priests blew the trumpets. And it happened when the people heard the sound of the trumpet, and the people shouted with a great shout, that the wall fell down flat. Then the people went up into the city, every man straight before him, and they took the city. 21 And they utterly destroyed all that was in the city, both man and woman, young and old, ox and sheep and donkey, with the edge of the sword.
Have you ever been in the mist of a crazy storm, a rough season where defeat seems imminent? PRAISE HIM, it will confuse the enemy.
You’ve done all you know to do and it seems there’s no more fight left in you, PRAISE HIM, it will confuse the enemy.
Your dreams seem like they will come to pass, PRAISE HIM, it will confuse the enemy.
You have no fight left in you, PRAISE HIM, it will confuse the enemy.
Tired of waiting for that breakthrough, PRAISE HIM, it will confuse the enemy.
That’s right, your praise in times of hardship will confuse the enemy. The enemy loves to see us struggle and be unhappy BUT when we praise God with all our might in those difficult times, it confuses him.
This week I make it a commitment to use praise as a weapon to confuse the enemy.
34 I will bless the Lord at all times;
His praise shall continually be in my mouth.
2 My soul shall make its boast in the Lord;
