By Joseph Prince
Hear me, O Judah and you inhabitants of Jerusalem;  Believe in the Lord your God, and you shall be established;  believe His prophets, and you shall prosper.”  And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed those who should sing to the Lord, and who should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army and were saying: “Praise the Lord, for His mercy endures forever.”  2 Chronicles 20:20-21
Today I want you to see two powerful keys to winning life’s battles from the account of King Jehospaphat.  The first is to believe the Lord,and you shall be established and believe the prophets and you shall prosper. God doesn’t want you to live in a perpetual state of uncertainty, anxiety, stress, and fear.
The second is to go into battle singing praises to God.  As the Israelites began to sing and praise, God caused confusion among the enemies’camps, and they utterly destroyed one another.  Judah did  not draw a single sword that day, but the battle was won.  
When you are feeling down, overwhelmed, or fearful, worship Him with these words,”His mercy endures forever.”  As you praise Him, He will “set ambushes” against all your enemies, troubles, fears, challenges, and addictions, as He did for Jehoshaphat and the people of Judah.  Not a single one of your adversaries will escape because the Lord Himself fights your battles.
This is how I fight my battles!”
