Humility In Battle

Psalm 8:2 New International Version

Through the praise of children and infants you have established a stronghold against your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger.

When we think of soldiers and warriors, we usually picture brawny people in uniforms.  We imagine them carrying powerful weapons.  But the Word of GOD asserts that even infants and children are mighty and victorious through the supernatural weaponry of praise.

GOD has called His children to be strong and courageous warriors here on earth.  The anointing He places upon us can cause spiritual chains to break and deliver people out of darkness.  However, we are not to wear the anointing like a badge or medal of honor. The anointing is our supernatural help to carry out the plan of GOD.  We didn’t earn it. It is ours by GOD’s design and through His grace.

In Matthew 23:12, New King James Version, JESUS cautioned us “And whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.”  All the glory belongs to Him alone.  We as vessels of GOD must always be humble about our victories.  Even the King of Kings and Lord of Lords humbled himself.

Philippians 2:7-9, New King James Version tells how JESUS CHRIST “made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men.  And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross.  Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name…”

Psalm 34:1-3, New King James Version expresses the rightful target of any boast: the Lord Himself. ” I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth.
My soul shall make its boast in the Lord; The humble shall hear of it and be glad.
Oh, magnify the Lord with me, And let us exalt His name together.”
