Praise and Worship as a Spiritual Weapon

Hello Readers & Followers,

How are you doing? How is your weekend going? I would like to share a spiritual exercise that I believe God would like Christians to engage in during this season. If the Lord asks you to undertake this spiritual exercise, please take time to engage in it. The spiritual exercise is for Christians to sing spiritual songs unto the Lord.

Are you aware of the Singing Revolution that occurred in 1987? The Singing Revolution is a commonly used name for events that led to the restoration of independence of the Baltic states of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania from the Soviet Union at the end of the Cold War. Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania rose up to fight their independence against the Soviet Union and they won without any violence or bloodshed. Are you wondering what they did? They gathered together and sang songs at different places as an act of protest and by 1991, each nation had gained its independence. How amazing! Can you see the power of singing?

The Singing Revolution is a reminder for us as Christians not to underestimate the power of singing spiritual songs unto the Lord during difficult times. Praise and Worship can be used as a spiritual weapon to fight against evil and to challenge oppression.

When you sing unto God, you make spiritual war, you build yourself up and others. Also, when you sing unto the Lord, you glorify God and you remain in joy.

We have a number of accounts in the Bible where singing led to victory. The destruction of Jericho was a result of singing and playing of instruments unto God. You can read more about it by reading Joshua 6:1-21. The Bible also talked about the account of Paul and Silas in Acts 16:25-26, it says:

Take time to join a singing challenge that may be taking place online.

Take time to sing spiritual songs unto the Lord. You can do this alone and as a group.

You can listen to Christian songs via Youtube, Spotify, etc.

You can sing psalms and hymns in your hearts unto the Lord (Colossians 3:16).

As the Lord granted Paul and Silas their own victory, we will experience our own victory in Jesus' name.

Have a lovely week!
