Jill Writes:  Is this a time to re-focus on worship? In the midst of uncertain and challenging times, can worship change our perspective. Worship shifts the attention off ourselves, our politicians our crises, and transfers it on to our unshakable, faithful and all-powerful God.

There is a story in 2 Chronicles about a people who In the midst of pressure and fear, choose to fill their minds and hearts with the truth of who God is. Faced with vast enemy armies approaching fast and imminent defeat and destruction, the terrified  people of Judah looked to King Jehoshaphat for a solution. He in turn looked to God. Jehoshophat summoned the people together and they begin to worship God: “Lord, the God of our ancestors, are you not the God who is in heaven? You rule over all the kingdoms of the nations. Power and might are in your hands, and no one can withstand you.” (2 Chronicles 20:6) and they say “We do not know what to do but our eyes are on you.” (2 Chronicles 20:12)

In response to the worship, God, whose ways are so much higher than ours, gives them a strategy. God says ‘do not be afraid or discouraged because if this vast army, for the battle is not yours but Gods’ and as a result ‘Jehoshaphat appointed men to sing to the lord and to praise him for the splendour of his holiness as they went out at the head of the army saying “Give thanks to the Lord for his love endures forever.” 2 Chronicles 20:21

What they begin to see is the various enemy armies turning on each other. As they worship with the words “Give thanks to the Lord…” a full blown war ensues between the different enemy armies whilst the people of Judah watch. The enemy armies end up destroying each other, making Judah victorious.

All the people of Judah had done was to worship. Worship is a weapon. When we worship, God moves. He brings transformation to individuals, communities, cities and nations. In worship we come together united under the truth that Jesus is Lord. Worship draws us into the presence of God. It fuels, sustains, awakens, convicts, inspires, redeems and renews. Let’s come together and as Psalm 149:6 says,  “Let the high praise of God be in their mouth, and a two-edge sword in their hand.” offer up praise to the name above every name. Trusting that as we worship God begins to build his kingdom. He will change us, re-align us and work powerfully in our lives and in our nation.  Let’s use this powerful weapon we have when we may feel when we don’t know what else to do!
