Worship Our King Jesus: Worship God in the Midst of the War Cry
Topic: Worship

Have we enough to go through the problem in our life? How many of us to have some difficult time in life? Of course, we all have problems in our everyday life. There is no person who hadn’t faced the circumstance in his life. Even Jesus had experienced all kinds of problems while he lived with His people (Matthew; Mark; Luke; John). But He conquered all of His problems with the help from His Heavenly Father.

When we have problems, where do we go to seek counsel? When we don’t feel like to serve God, what would we do? Most people seek counsel from alcohols, bar, sex, TV, movie, music, family, and/or friends when they would get stress. And the youngest people are seeking help from these items/groups when they’d get peer pressure. As long as they’d get what they want to be cured from stress, they’d feel satisfy for while.

We, too, are in a war zone. We are in a war zone that Satan can attack us to lead us to his kingdom, Hell. We are in a war zone that we might turn ourselves from God and begin to serve Satan. We are in a war zone that Satan can defeat us. We are in a war zone that we can defeat Satan with the power of God for good.

David didn’t look at Goliath with the weapon to get chance to win in the battleground, but he looked up to the Author and Finisher of his faith (cf. Hebrews 12:2) to defeat the giant at the front of his thousand enemies. What cause David to defeat Goliath? Was his faith? Was his reliable God?

Read with me in I Samuel 17:45-48.

Then David said to the Philistine, “You come to me with a sword, with a spear, and with a javelin. But I come to you in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. This day the LORD will deliver you into my hand, and I will strike you and take your head from you. And this day I will give the carcasses of the camp of the Philistines to the birds of the air and the wild beasts of the earth, that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel. Then all this assembly shall know that the LORD does not save with sword and spear; for the battle is the LORD’s, and He will give you into our hands.”

So it was, when the Philistine arose and came and drew near to meet David, that David hurried and ran toward the army to meet the Philistine.

Just like David, we are in a war zone—war zone to fight against the power of darkness. But we are not in the battleground alone, God is with us.

Some of us may face different kinds of problems in our lives than what David faced. Whether we face the problem that is small or big, God can help us to overcome these battles. Paul says we are not fight against another human being, but against the power of darkness (Ephesians 6:12). Sure, our people would sometime to decide to against us, even from our own family, but we are not alone to go out to fight our own battle. If we make a war cry to God, He can help us in the time of our needs. Look what Joshua and his people did to possess the land of Jericho (Joshua 6). The people of Israel walked around the wall of Jericho, for seven days, and made the trumpets sound to worship God to destroy the people in the land to possess it. The number seven stands for perfection. God created the world in six days and He rested on the seventh day, because He saw His handwork perfectly and rest after the six days.

Are we on the point where we would have perfect life? Some of us may think so. They may think that they can live perfectly as long as they can have what they want. But I have sad news for those who would want to live perfectly. There is no such thing “perfect life.” Although Bill Gates lives as a rich business man, he is still poor than the rest of homeless people, unless he already has developed his relationship with Jesus Christ.

Worship God with all your soul, heart, and strength to overcome your obstacles. Sing a new song and praise to God to win for your victory in Jesus Christ. As one of Baptist songs says,

Victory, victory, victory in Jesus!
Sing His overcoming blood, sing the grace that frees us;
Ring it out more boldly, song of faith and cheer,
Till the whole wide world shall hear.

O’er the pow’rs of darkness, o’er the hosts of sin,
Victory in Jesus, victory!
Trusting, watching, praying, we shall surely win,
Victory in Jesus evermore.


Send the happy watchword all along the line,
Victory in Jesus, victory!
Let all error perish, lives the truth divine,
Victory in Jesus evermore.

Song created by Eliza E. Hewii (1851-1920)

So where are you? If you are in a war zone, how you can set free from the battleground? What if your family members decide to forsake you because God gave you more revelation to His word, and you don’t agree what your family interprets from the Scripture or some other reasons? Even your family may decide to forsake you, the Bible says, and then God will take care of you (Psalm 27:10).

Who are you? As you read this message, you may think this is unreal that we are in a spiritual war. It doesn’t matter what we think, the battle is happening in each individual’s soul. Look what’s happening on kids. Many movies and books on Harry Potter have impacted on kids’ souls. They want more fantasy and magic in their lives rather than soul nutrition from God’s Words. Teenagers may have been seeking for sex and drug to fill their empty souls. What are we going to do about these issues on our young people?

We can help them to fight their spiritual battle in Jesus Christ. We also can help to have their relationship with Jesus Christ. There are no other greatest gifts than to introduce them Jesus Christ. Young people are God’s children and the next generation leaders for their country.

Worship God and sing a praise song to Him to fight the battle for your eternal destiny.

Are you saved? Are your love ones and friends saved in the grace of God through Jesus Christ? The purpose of this study is to help you to become closer relationship with Jesus Christ. As Jesus said, "Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me. In my Father's house are many rooms, if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am." (John 14:1-3.)

If you are lukewarm in your relationship with Jesus Christ and want to know Him as your personal Savior and Lord of your life, please consider asking Him to forgive your sins and invite Him into your life. Paul says, "That if you confess with your mouth, `Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believed and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved." (Romans 10:9-10.) If you have done in your private room or workplace, then you need to tell to your friends or love ones about what you have done, so they may rejoice with you and want to have that relationship with Christ in their own life. There are many occults in the world, which do not know the love of God and His great plan for those who believe in Him. As it is written in John 3:16, "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."
