“When thou passet through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee; when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.” Isaiah 43:2
Beloved, praise lifts you up; it gets you across the difficulties of your destiny journey; it gives you a supernatural lift that gets you to your promised land. Jesus already told us that we would face all kinds of tribulations and troubles in this world. It is never easy in this life but through His grace, we can do all things through Christ who strengthen us. Meanwhile, as we pass through the rivers and fires of life, God expects us to go through them rejoicing always in Him. Jesus said, “be of good cheer”. This means, be happy, don’t be downcast, don’t be depressed, be hopeful in the Lord. This is where praise is of great help to you. I have never seen a person really praise God and remain downcast. Praise makes your heart glad and hopeful. It makes you full of excitement and energy causing your faith to soar.
Understand that the tribulations and troubles in life are not meant to destroy you but to strengthen you for your lifting. You must pass through the wilderness and wage war against the giants before you can possess your high places in Christ. So whatever you are facing now that is contrary to your expectation has not come to stay but to pass. Joy, gladness, and rejoicing always will be like an energy booster for you. Being joyful and praiseful makes you hopeful, and always in the presence of the Lord Almighty. You will always be surrounded by God’s power and therefore you will always be victorious and lifted above the prevailing circumstance.
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.

I ate in the dream one night and I was choking. I got up and drank water. From then, I suffered chest pain. I got the blood of Jesus and started using it; sprinkling it in my mouth and rubbing it on my chest. The chest pain vanished. Praise God!
