Where Did the War Cry Go?


Have you lost your worship?

“Praise the Lord. Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens. Praise him for his acts of power; praise him for his surpassing greatness. Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet, praise him with the harp and lyre, praise him with timbrel and dancing, praise him with the strings and pipe, praise him with the clash of cymbals, praise him with resounding cymbals. Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord.” Psalm 150:1-6 (NIV)

Pastor Eli shared the story of Gideon in Judges chapters 6-8. Gideon was called by God to save Israel from the Midianites by assembling only 300 men to fight against their army of 120,000 men. Gideon had a lot of doubts, but he overcame his doubts to defeat the Midianites not by might or by power, but by praise.

You can’t let the worries of life quench your worship.

Do you feel like the enemy has stolen what God has promised you? But no matter what place you are in, you’re in a good place when God is with you. When the odds are stacked against you, you are in prime position for a miracle. Faith doesn’t always make sense until after the fact. Faith is believing in advance what only makes sense in reverse.

When God is all you have, you have all you need.

“When Gideon heard the dream and its interpretation, he bowed down and worshiped. He returned to the camp of Israel and called out, ‘Get up! The Lord has given the Midianite camp into your hands.’” Judges 7:15 (NIV)

Gideon worshipped before the victory. You have to pre-decide the person you are going to be and the spirit you are going to carry. You cannot let your circumstances dictate your response.

Are you going to learn how to praise in the valley?

“About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening to them. Suddenly there was such a violent earthquake that the foundations of the prison were shaken. At once all the prison doors flew open, and everyone’s chains came loose.” Acts 16:25-26 (NIV)

There are no contingencies to praising God. Don’t let the rocks cry out for you (Luke 19:40). You have to have a praise that preludes your victory. The most powerful form of praise is one that cannot be dictated by circumstances.

“What if someone else’s breakthrough is on the other side of your praise?” ~ Pastor Eli Nelson
