RELEASE THE SOUND!
Gideon’s Army ARISE! Release the sound of the breaking of the jars that show forth the light. This will scatter the enemy! (Judges 7)
Though the enemy comes to kill and destroy, he comes to threaten and cause fear…we can remain in the peace of His unfailing love. No one can separate us from the love of God. The greatest service we can do for those facing persecution is to continually release prayers of peace and joy upon them. The world needs to see the hope of our faith and the joy that comes from having obtained eternal life now more than ever. Let us all release praise into the atmosphere. God’s people can change the atmosphere of fear that surrounds so many with shouts of joy.
The enemy’s tactics are not new! God has a way to defeat the enemy.
Gideon and the hundred men with him reached the edge of the camp at the beginning of the middle watch, just after they had changed the guard. They blew their trumpets and broke the jars that were in their hands. The three companies blew the trumpets and smashed the jars. Grasping the torches in their left hands and holding in their right hands the trumpets they were to blow, they shouted, “A sword for the Lord and for Gideon!” While each man held his position around the camp, all the Midianites ran, crying out as they fled.
When the three hundred trumpets sounded, the Lord caused the men throughout the camp to turn on each other with their swords.
Only God can come up with a plan that can cause the enemy to flee with a sound!
He is worthy to receive worship. Let nothing hold back all that He is due. Release the sound of praise, the sound of joy, the sound of deliverance, the sound of those who have been set free. As you release the sound it will begin to set the captives free, it will break the chains and it will release light into the darkness. The enemy’s army will turn on themselves.
Begin now! Release the sound of worship like trumpets into the land and into the atmosphere!
