“But thou art holy, o thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.” Praise 22:3
Beloved, do you need the presence of God in your life at all times? If yes, then become a person of praise. Praise guarantees God’s presence always. God inhabits the praises of His people and this guarantees your victory. The presence of God gives you the ultimate security against all the onslaughts of life. There is no opposition that can withstand His presence.
Moses knew the secret of sweat-less triumph; he knew the secret of victory against barriers and negative circumstances. He knew that without God he could do nothing and the children of Israel would be sitting ducks to their enemies. This was why he specifically asked for the presence of God to go with them on their journey. It is quite worthy of note that the presence of God always guaranteed victory for the children of Israel. Their enemies trembled at their presence because they carried the presence of God. His presence leveled mountains, divided sea, shattered mountains and caused nations to flee.
Beloved, you need the presence of God in your everyday life. There is no wall of Jericho that can withstand His presence. Praises will always shatter the prison gates around you like in the case of Paul and Silas. It will always open up the doors of breakthrough that have been shut up against you. Beloved, God’s presence is all you need in your life. You can pray for 100 days with fasting and you won’t see the presence that shatters the cedars of Lebanon in your life but just a few minutes of praise daily will make the crooked paths straight for you.
In doing this, don’t forget that giving your Firstfruit is a sign to God that you are ready for His blessings in your life this year.
Psalms 114:1-8, Exodus 33, Acts 16
Open door and Victory
I was experiencing financial hardship. During a service, I was led to sow the last money I had on me. It was as if that seed opened the tap of blessings. I have not lacked since then. Again, we had a land court case that had been going on for over 15 years. Daddy prayed for me, and the next time we went to court, judgment was given in our favour. Praise God!

1. Arise O Lord and let my enemies be scattered.
2. I call forth the Holy Angels to go and scatter every high thing raised against me and my family in Jesus name.
3. Whoever is dragging what rightfully belongs to me and my family, I break their hands now in Jesus name.
4. Any evil eye looking at me and my family, I blind them now in Jesus name.
5. I receive completion and perfection in every area of my life in Jesus name.
