We’re Undefeatable! – Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional September 22nd

(The Battle Has Been Won Already)

TO THE BIBLE: 2 Chronicles 14:11 NASB
“…Help us, Lord our God, for we trust in You, and in Your name have come against this multitude. Lord, You are our God; do not let man prevail against You.’”

In the Scriptures, we find certain instances where God’s people were overwhelmed by their adversaries in numbers and weapons.

In the days of King Asa, Judah was completely outnumbered by Zerah, the Ethiopian King, who invaded Judah with an army of a million men and three hundred chariots. Asa cried out to the Lord, and the Lord gave him supernatural victory (2 Chronicles 14:12).

Then we come to the story of Jehoshaphat, the King of Judah. Judah was surrounded by three enemy nations that were ready to attack her: Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir.

The king gathered all Judah together to seek the Lord in prayer and fasting, and God said through a prophetic message, “…Fear not, nor be dismayed; to morrow go out against them: for the Lord will be with you” (2 Chronicles 20:17 KJV).

God told them how to approach the war and was definite: He said, “Tomorrow, go out against them!” Not only that, He revealed the exact location of the enemies’ camp and gave them the strategy to defeat them.

Employing the strategy God gave them, Jehoshaphat organised and placed singers, the Levites, in front to praise the beauty of God’s holiness.

Think about it: not a single sword was lifted, yet God’s people recorded an overwhelming victory against three enemy nations.

This is our reality as new creatures in Christ Jesus; we’re undefeatable. The battle was already won before we came on the scene.

What God expects is for us to give Him praise. This is what we must do in our churches. Our churches have to be filled with songs of praise to God.

It makes no difference what you face in this world; be full of praise and worship the Lord because the battle has been won!

No wonder He says, “My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials” (James 1:2).

Then in Romans 8:37, He says, “Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.” We’re past conquering, and we have the victory in Christ Jesus. Glory to God!

I thank you, Lord, for the victories, triumphs and successes that I experience always. You’re incorruptible and immortal, invisible, the only God; to you be honour and glory, majesty, might and dominion, power and authority, now and forever. Amen.
