“O sing unto the Lord a new song; for he hath done marvelous things; his right hand, and his holy arm, hath gotten him the victory.” Psalm 98:1
‘Praise’ is another tool of victory. When praises go up, the heavens move on your behalf and impossible situations turn around. Each time you praise, you remind the enemy that he is defeated, and you re-enact the victory of Jesus on the cross. When you praise, depression and oppression fly out off your soul. When you praise God, sickness flees, shackles are broken, and obstacles are lifted. Your whole life begins to make a 360 degrees turn around as you became consistent in praises. Do you want to turn the tables on your enemies? Start praising. Is the battle hard against you? Has your enemy scored heavy points against you and you have incurred so much loss? You need to start praising God for what you want to see.
King Jehoshaphat and the people of Judah were faced with a battle bigger than them. Some nation came together to fight them and they knew that by their own strength they would lose woefully. They turned to God in prayer and God told them to go into rest and just praise Him for the battle belonged to Him. Halleluiah! So instead of soldiers and mighty men, they put a choir upfront. Ha ha! So the enemy looked and saw singers and instrumentalists with harps, tambourines and their flowing colourful robes and they became confused. The Lord confuses your enemies when you start singing and dancing instead of murmuring and complaining. The enemy becomes baffled and has no defense against praiseful Christians. God came to the battle in full glory and gave the Israelites victory and that is the same way He will give you your own victory. Praise Him!
2 Chronicles 20:1-30
Saved from death
Before the last PHD service, one brother ran to my house one morning and told me he had a bad revelation where I had an accident and died. I rejected it. During the PHD service in Umuhu, I came and prayed. I got the devotional book and tied it to my Motor Cycle. Few days later, the accident happened but nothing happened to me. I am still alive in the land of the living. Praise God!
