At the very moment…

What does that mean to you? To me it means immediately, right now, simultaneous, follow immediately…it means at the very same time!

At the very moment they began to sing and give praise, the Lord caused the armies of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir to start fighting among themselves.

2 Chronicles 20:22

When the people began to sing, at that very moment, the three armies advancing against them began to fight one another. Before they ever arrived, before one shot was fired, before one arrow flew, before the battle started it was finished. Just as God had said, he fought for them. The battle was not theirs.

Before God moved on their behalf, the people fasted and prayed, bowed down and worshipped, moved ahead as a community and praised God for his holy splendor. They believed in the Lord and stood firm.

Too often I wait until I see God do something and then I believe. After I see what he does, I worship, praise, pray.

But all of these holy disciplines preceded the battle. And when they arrived at the Valley of Blessing – so named for what God did for them – there were no armies. Just bodies lying on the ground. The armies defeated one another. And Israel gathered so much plunder they couldn’t carry it all.

I don’t know what enemies are attacking you right now. We all experience the same quarantine, but our fears and uncertainties are our own.

I do know that God is ready and waiting to go before you and confuse/eliminate your enemies. He is released to do that through our unity, prayer, worship and praise.

So let’s join {virtual} hands and lift our voices to Father in heaven praising him for his holy splendor!

Give thanks to the Lord; for his faithful love endures forever!
