Martha Munizzi – No Limits (live) CD – Is an awesome cd and I would highly recommend it to anyone. I have really been listening to this cd a lot lately, and it is helping me to overcome some things that I’ve been dealing with lately. If we keep our minds on praising God then our mind has no time to dwell on our circumstances. I know that for me…the more I dwell on something the more worked up I can get…which doesn’t always work in my favor. In fact it can leave me feeling defeated, and like I’m carrying a heavy load. So this cd has been helping me to keep my mind on God. This song gets me all fired up…I love it!!!
In this song she says, “Praise is the weapon, but the battle is the Lord’s”. That is so true!! Our praise to a Holy God is the weapon that we use to defeat our circumstances, and to come out on the other side. We can not lose when we allow God to fight our battle for us, and our praise to God is what is needed for that to happen.
Here is a great Bible story about how God can fight our battles for us:
2 Chronicles 20:15-25 “And he said, Hearken ye, all Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem, and thou king Jehoshaphat, Thus saith the LORD unto you, Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God’s.
16 To morrow go ye down against them: behold, they come up by the cliff of Ziz; and ye shall find them at the end of the brook, before the wilderness of Jeruel.
17 Ye shall not need to fight in this battle: set yourselves, stand ye still, and see the salvation of the LORD with you, O Judah and Jerusalem: fear not, nor be dismayed; to morrow go out against them: for the LORD will be with you.
18 And Jehoshaphat bowed his head with his face to the ground: and all Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem fell before the LORD, worshipping the LORD.
19 And the Levites, of the children of the Kohathites, and of the children of the Korhites, stood up to praise the LORD God of Israel with a loud voice on high.
20 And they rose early in the morning, and went forth into the wilderness of Tekoa: and as they went forth, Jehoshaphat stood and said, Hear me, O Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem; Believe in the LORD your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper.
21 And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed singers unto the LORD, and that should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army, and to say, Praise the LORD; for his mercy endureth for ever.
22 And when they began to sing and to praise, the LORD set ambushments against the children of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, which were come against Judah; and they were smitten.
23 For the children of Ammon and Moab stood up against the inhabitants of mount Seir, utterly to slay and destroy them: and when they had made an end of the inhabitants of Seir, every one helped to destroy another.
24 And when Judah came toward the watch tower in the wilderness, they looked unto the multitude, and, behold, they were dead bodies fallen to the earth, and none escaped.
25 And when Jehoshaphat and his people came to take away the spoil of them, they found among them in abundance both riches with the dead bodies, and precious jewels, which they stripped off for themselves, more than they could carry away: and they were three days in gathering of the spoil, it was so much”.
Look at this story…the children of Israel didn’t have to lift a finger to fight. I think that it’s important to note that the singers were sent out in front of the men of war/soldiers. All they did was sing songs of praise and worship to God, stood their ground on faith, and he fought the battle for them. Not only did God fight this battle for them, but look at the huge blessing that he also gave them…it took three days to collect all the riches and there was so much that they couldn’t even carry all of it. In the midst of our hard times and trials if we allow God to fight our battles for us not only will we stand in victory over our circumstances, but God can abundantly bless us in that victory.
