Why You Need to Worship

“So Gideon and the hundred men who were with him came to the outskirts of the camp at the beginning of the middle watch, when they had just set the watch. And they blew the trumpets and smashed the jars that were in their hands. Then the three companies blew the trumpets and broke the jars. They held in their left hands the torches, and in their right hands the trumpets to blow. And they cried out, ‘A sword for the LORD and for Gideon!’” – Judges 7:19 

As we read this section of Scripture, we see the value of worship and the effect that it has on our circumstances. Gideon and his army worshiped the Lord as they entered into battle. Previously, we saw Gideon’s fear as he took down the altar of Baal at night instead of during the day. Now, we see him step out in faith and trust in the Lord with this battle. There are a few key points you must remember about worship: 

  1. Faith always defeats fear. In this passage, we see that Gideon and his army had faith while the Midianite army was fearful. 
  2. Worship is part of spiritual warfare. There is an unseen realm, and a war is raging between God and His angelic beings. 
  3. Sometimes you don’t need to engage with your enemy. You need to ignore them and engage with your God instead. 
  4. Our God wins unwinnable wars. It seems crazy that Gideon and his army would win this battle with trumpets, but they did because of God. 
  5. The battle belongs to the Lord. At the end of the day, we must trust that God is for us and that He will never leave us or forsake us. What seems impossible for us to accomplish is always possible with the Lord!

Spend some time in worship today and, with open hands, give your fears and concerns to the Lord knowing that He is fighting for you.
