Saturday, 15th October 2016: God will ambush your enemies!

Scripture Reading: 2 Chronicles 20:22
And when they began to sing and to praise, the LORD set ambushments against the children of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, which were come against Judah; and they were smitten.


Reflection: The Moabites, Ammonites, and the people of Mount Seir came to start a war with King Jehoshaphat. He therefore approached God in prayer and asked for divine help. After God assured him of victory, he proceeded to march his people into battle. His army had a component of singers. They sang praises as they marched in front. This looked weird but what followed was such a wonder. God suddenly AMBUSHED the enemy allied forces. This  brought confusion between them. They rather fought against each other and killed themselves as Jehoshaphat and his people looked on in utter amazement. The battle was suddenly over without Jehoshaphat ever needing to fight. Divine ambushment had worked out a miracle for him. To ambush is a military tactic where you make a surprise attack on someone from a concealed position. Your enemies may think they have all they need to overpower and humiliate you but God will take them by surprise. He will ambush them! Like Jehoshaphat, keep praising and worshipping God in your challenging moments.

Prayer: Oh Lord, ambush my enemies!

Confession: My enemies will be ambushed by God. I will keep praising God!
