Today's reminder that worship is a spiritual weapon of warfare.

Last week, we discussed how worship enthrones God and dethrones everything else. (Read about it here, if you missed.)


So if we know that God inhabits our praise (Psalm 22:3), when we maintain an attitude of worship, Psalm 9:3 says our enemies will fall and perish at HIS PRESENCE.


"I will praise You, O Lord, with my whole heart; I will tell of all Your marvelous works. I will be glad and rejoice in You; I will sing praise to Your name, O Most High. When my enemies turn back, They shall fall and perish at Your presence."
Psalms 9:1-3


Do you see the correlation?


If my praise establishes the kingdom of God, right here in the midst of where I am releasing my worship, no attack of the enemy can prosper! 

My worship summons the presence of God to surround me and not only fill me with peace, but protect me from the adversary. 

I've said it before and I'll say it again...WORSHIP IS MY WARFARE!

Praise is a supernatural weapon.

This is truly how we...

[PODCAST] Season 4 Episode 3: WORSHIP - Release a Confident Sound

PODCAST SEASON 4: WORSHIP - Back to Basics

EPISODE 3: WORSHIP - Release a Confident Sound

1 Corinthians 14:8 says,

"For if the trumpet makes an uncertain sound, who will prepare for battle?"

Join me in this podcast episode to discuss the Biblical importance of a trumpet sound and how it was used as a preparation step for battle. Not only that, but the delivery of the sound itself was critically important.

If the sound was uncertain or weak, no one would prepare for the battle ahead.

In our daily lives, we need to proclaim God's truth and shout with a loud voice His name with complete confidence, truly believing that He is able to help us through any battle or season of life.

Throughout this episode, we'll be reading from:

  • Numbers 10
  • Joshua 6
  • Judges 7

Listen in and then go out there and make a confident sound of worship and praise to our mighty God who is worthy of it!

"Let the saints be joyful in glory; Let them sing aloud on their beds.

Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, And a two-edged sword in their hand," 

Psalms 149:5-6

When I first read these verses earlier today in Psalm 149, I was struck with their power! I am so passionate about worship and praise being chief among the spiritual weapons that God has given His believers, so I get so excited when I find even more Scriptures to back it up.

Worship is a critical strategy of spiritual warfare. Not many of us realize just how powerful our praise and worship can be.

But no more.
