There are times in which God wants us to fight back when the enemy is attacking us, by using our spiritual weapons of warfare. Then there are other times in which He doesn’t want us to fight, but to position ourselves, to stand and to see what He is doing to rescue us from the attack.
This is what happened with king Jehoshaphat and his people. When they heard of the enemy approaching, they were scared, and in reaction they sought the Lord. Jehoshaphat then prayed a prayer, by declaring who God is, and by declaring what He had done for them in the past. Then he approached God as judge, to state their case, and reminded God of His promises. In bowing down before God, Jehoshaphat and his people worshipped and praised God. Then in the midst of their worship and praise, God intervened, and caused the enemy to turn on themselves, so that every one was destroyed, the Israelites were blessed, and God was honored for what He did.
Positioning yourself, and standing, while facing the enemy thus entails praise and worship God amidst the attack, but also declaring what He will do to the enemy. Marelize uses Psalm 3, with its declarations of God being our shield and the lifter of our head, to God striking the enemy on the cheekbone and braking its teeth, to illustrate how God will turn things around for us. 2 Chron 20:17 2 Chron 17:10 1 Sam 17
