A Warm Sol Wise Welcome Today!

High Praise!

2 Samuel 11
1. Now it came to pass in the spring of the year, at the time when kings go out to battle, that David sent Joab and his servants with him, and all Israel; and they destroyed the people of Ammon and besieged Rabbah. But David remained at Jerusalem.
New King James Bible

The nation of Israel initiated war against its enemies each spring. Just so God expects that we will take the pro-active stance of making war on temptations that harrass us.

This kind of war requires us to praise God positively for our victory at the beginning of each day.

Psalm 149 says:
5. Let the saints be joyful in glory;
Let them sing aloud on their beds.
6. Let the high praises of God be in their mouth,
And a two-edged sword in their hand,
7. To execute vengeance on the nations,
And punishments on the peoples;
8. To bind their kings with chains,
And their nobles with fetters of iron;
9. To execute on them the written judgment.
This honor have all His saints.
Praise the Lord!
New King James Bible

Put in a personal praise-prayer you can put these verses this way:
Father, I give You high honour today, with great joy;
Thank You for Your song singing in my heart this day.
(Now sing the God-song in your heart out loud!)
I fill my mouth with high praises to You,
my God and King;
and I take up this high praise
as a weapon against temptation today;
I execute vengeance on the temptations,
And punishments on the tests;
I bind the Strong Man with chains,
And hand-cuff his plans to harrass me;
I execute on temptations and tests
the judgment written in the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ.
This honor have all His saints - including me!
Praise the Lord!
Amen!
