Thankfulness is one of the keys to victory over our enemies. Many of you know the story in 2 Chronicles 20. The Moabites and the Ammonites are coming against Jehoshaphat and Judah. They fast and pray and seek the LORD, recognizing they are helpless without Him. Then the Spirit of the LORD came upon Yahaziel, who gave the battle plan. They would not fight, but the worshippers would go out first, in front of the soldiers. “The battle is not yours, but God’s. Stand and see the salvation of the LORD.” What was it that they said as they went out before the enemy? “Give thanks to the LORD, for His lovingkindness is everlasting.” Give thanks! The powerful impact of those first two words paved the way for the victory that followed.
