Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
"Showdown at Mount Zemaraim"
"Thus the children of Israel were subdued at that time; and the children of Judah prevailed, because they relied on the Lord God of their fathers."
This Morning for Breakfast we see a Showdown at Mount Zermaraim between God's People Judah, with 400,000 men, and the idol worshippers of Israel, with 800,000 men.
While Judah's king Abijah is warning Israel's king Jeroboam not to fight against the Lord - Jeroboam sets an ambush behind Judah, and surrounds them. The priests blow the trumpets and the men shout to God "and the Lord struck all of Israel before Abijah and Judah!" (v.14,15)
Like a repeat of Joshua and his warriors walking around Jericho; the priests blew the trumpets, and the warriors shouted to God - and the walls came a tumbling down! Ooooh Rah!
Even when our enemies surround us, our Commander Jesus has already surrounded us in His hand.
Listen up Warrior!
When you fight the battles of righteousness, against what seems to be multitudes of wickedness - it may even look like you're surrounded by evil; but in reality you are also surrounded by Your Commander Almighty God, The God of Battles Himself! Ooooh Rah!
You dwell in the secret place of the Most High and abide under the shadow of the Almighty!(Psa.91:1).
The Warrior stands and fights from the Palm of God's Hand.
The Lord Reigns at the Showdown at Mount Zemariam. And He reigns at ALL the "Showdowns" in our life.(Psa.97:1-6)
Your Commander Reigns! Ooooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
