"I will sing to the LORD, for he has been good to me."
PSALM 13: 6
Praise is often the key that turns defeat into victory …even when your life seems to be sinking into darkness and despair and the enemy seems to have the upper hand.
As life gets more complicated and problems and pressures grow, don't forget the key!
Jehoshaphat, king of Judah, used the key when he "appointed men to sing to the Lord and to praise him for the splendor of his holiness as they went out at the head of the army, saying, 'Give thanks to the Lord, for his love endures forever.'
As they began to sing and praise, the Lord set ambushes against the [enemy] …and they were defeated"
(2 Chronicles 20: 21 –22).
Paul and Silas, sitting in a Philippian jail, used the key.
And as they sang praises, the prison doors were opened, the jailer was converted, and they were set free
(Acts 16: 25 –36).
When you seem to be facing defeat …when you feel imprisoned by ill health or by your circumstances …when friends betray you and foes attack you …
It's time to use the KEY!!
It's time to start praising God!
