• Psalm 68:1 – is one of the most powerful prayers in scripture

It  is a  very very powerful song

  • This Ps 68:1 prayer did not originate with David but with Moses in the wilderness Num. 10:33-36:

And they departed from the mount of the LORD three days’ journey: and the ark of the covenant of the LORD went before them in the three days’ journey, to search out a resting place for them And the cloud of the LORD was upon them by day, when they went out of the camp. And it came to pass, when the ark set forward, that Moses said, Rise up, LORD, and let thine enemies be scattered; and let them that hate thee flee before thee. And when it rested, he said, Return, O LORD, unto the many thousands of Israel.”

  • Anytime Moses said that the cloud will arise and Israel will follow
  • It is a cry of change, a  cry of deliverance
  • A cry of forward progress
  • A cry to go from one level to another
  • A cry to go to new territory
  • A cry for fresh move of God
  • A cry For God to move the victory procession
  • A cry for promotions
  • A battle cry to posses your possession
  • It’s a victory, mystery cry
  • It’s a cry from minimum to maximum Lift up your hand and say:

“ Rise up, LORD, and let thine enemies be scattered; and let them that hate thee flee before thee

  •   The enemy that does not want God’s will for your life to be fulfilled is God’s enemy no 1
  • Jesus says in Psalm 40:7-8  Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me,  I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart.
