Day 312: Waving the Banner (November 8)

While running and worshiping this morning, I saw myself standing out on our property and I was waving a huge flag back and forth.  I heard, “I will see it come to pass”.

To piggy back on yesterday’s devotional, I want to reinforce this concept and season.

As we enter a new season of seeing dreams realized, why not lead out the charge waving our banner high?!

In my heart and spirit, I am already praising the Lord for what I believe I will see Him do.  In other words, I don’t wait until something breaks through in my life.  I lead the charge by thanking God in advance and proclaiming His goodness and faithfulness in my life.

In the bible, I have read of the worshipers leading the troops out to battle.  I love to imagine myself there.  Singing and worshiping the Father as I head out onto the battlefield.  In the words of the popular song, “This is how I fight my battles”.

As I prepare to walk into this season of victory, I am arming myself in worship.  I am taking extra time to soak in the Father’s Presence.  Taking time to reflect on all the blessings He has already done and praising Him for each one.

He is such a faithful Father.  So gracious.  So worthy.  There’s nothing our God cannot do.


Jehoshaphat bowed with his face to the ground, and all the people of Judah and Jerusalem fell down in worship before the Lord.  Then some Levites from the Kohathites and Korahites stood up and praised the Lord, the God of Israel, with a very loud voice.  Early in the morning they left for the Desert of Tekoa.  As they set out, Jehoshaphat stood and said, “Listen to me, Judah and people of Jerusalem.  Have faith in the Lord your God and you will be upheld; have faith in His prophets and you will be successful.  After consulting the people, Jehoshaphat appointed men to sing to the Lord and to praise Him for the splendor of His holiness as they went out at the head of the army, saying: “Give thanks to the Lord, for His love endures forever.”  As they began to sing and praise, the Lord set ambushes against the men of Ammon and Moab and Mount Seir who were invading Judah, and they were defeated.  The men of Ammon and Moab rose up against the men from Mount Seir to destroy and annihilate them.  After they finished slaughtering the men from Seir, they helped to destroy one another.  When the men of Judah came to the place that overlooks the desert and looked toward the vast army, they saw only dead bodies lying on the ground; no one had escaped.  So Jehoshaphat sent his men to carry off their plunder, and they found among them a great amount of equipment and clothing and also articles of value- more than they could take away.  There was so much plunder that it took three days to collect it.  On the fourth day they assembled in the Valley of Beracah, where they praised the Lord.  2 Chronicles 20:18-26
