Power of Praise #2
2Ch 20:1-30 Jehoshaphat means "God is my judge". Expressions of Praise: (1) Repentance (2Ch 20:3); (2) Pray 2Ch 20:5-12 ; (3) Proclaim ahead of deliverance (2Ch 20:14-16); (4) Rest (2Ch 20:17-19, 2Ch 20:30); (5) Obedience (2Ch 20:20); (6) Thanksgiving (2Ch 20:21); (7) Singing (2Ch 20:22); (8) Giving (2Ch 20:24-30). The song of praise (Psa 33:1-5): it's proper for believers to give praise. "A new song" (Psa 33:3) expresses new insight into God's word and works (Psa 33:1-4). God loves righteousness and Justice, so the earth is full of His goodness (Psa 33:5). Testimony of God's works (Exo 15:1-21); we know how to praise Him after the fact, but don't before we see it. The Exodus generation never praised God ahead of time which would have been an evidence of faith; they never went into the land as a result.
