"Then Jehoshaphat stood up in the assembly of Judah and Jerusalem at the temple of the Lord in the front of the new courtyard and said: “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 hand, and no one can withstand you. Our God, did you not drive out the inhabitants of this land before your people Israel and give it forever to the descendants of Abraham your friend? They have lived in it and have built in it a sanctuary for your Name, saying, ‘If calamity comes upon us, whether the sword of judgment, or plague or famine, we will stand in your presence before this temple that bears your Name and will cry out to you in our distress, and you will hear us and save us.’ ” - 2 Chronicles 20:5-9
Bible Reading: 2 Chronicles 20:1-19, Isaiah 54:15
Worship increases God's domain. His presence is everywhere but His manifest presence is not everywhere. By worshipping God, we are basking in his manifest presence.
Worship confers dominion. It gives us authority and opens doors. It open up destinies and new realms of opportunities. It elevates us and distinguishes us from others.
Check your life. If the devil is coming against you, you must be doing something right. The forces of darkness are always at odds with true worshippers.
Fear not, God is saying "Do not be afraid." He wants you to confront your confronters. They know your God. They will surrender to you. Worship gives you dominion!
True worshippers enjoy the manifest presence of God. They are not afraid of any advances of the devil. They operate in the supernatural power of God. They keep going forward.
Are you a true worshipper?
