The men of Judah were victorious because they relied on the Lord, the God of their fathers. 2 Chronicles 13: 18
What I heard from Jesus today is: Victorious because we rely on the Lord.
Jeroboam had 800,000 able troops and Abijah had only 400,000. (v. 3) Jeroboam had a good military strategy of attacking Abijah's army at both front and rear. Why Jeroboam failed and Abijah won?
They cried out to the Lord. The priests blew their trumpets and the men of Judah raised the battle cry. What was that? I think it was somewhat like the situation when the Israelites attacked the city of Jericho. It was a kind of "spiritual bullets" , a spiritual strategy from God:
When the trumpets sounded, the people shouted, and at the sound of the trumpet, when the people gave a loud shout, the wall collapsed; so every man charged straight in, and they took the city. Joshua 6: 20
That is so simple. Only God has His own spiritual strategy tailor-made to different situation. What we need to do is to cry out to God for help and sound the trumpets. The unity of the priests gave a mighty power to a spiritual warfare. So, you really need to pray for the unity of all the priests and pastors because without the unity of these God anointed servants, we can never win a spiritual warfare!
Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us to be willing to cry out to you and use the spiritual bullets to fight spiritual warfare. In Jesus name we pray . Amen.
