O sing unto the LORD a new song; for he hath done marvellous 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. When you praise, you rub it in the enemy that he is defeated. When you praise, you reenact the victory of Jesus on the cross. When you praise, depression and oppression fly out of the window. When you praise, the sickness in your body flees. When you praise, shackles are broken. When you praise, obstacles are lifted. When you are a habitual praiser, your life makes 360 degrees turn around in the right direction.
King Jehoshaphat and the people of Judah were faced with battle bigger than them. Some nations came together to fight them and they had nothing to fight back. They went to God in prayer and God gave them the praise-solution. Instead of putting warriors in front, they put singers in front. That was a risk but it was the key to their victory. It is risky when you are faced with harsh condition and you are praising instead of running from pillar to post, but that is the key. Their praise brought God into the battle and the enemies ended up fighting themselves and they had the victory.
Acceptable praise comes from a heart filled with gratitude and not just as a religious requirement. This month, make it a point of duty to make out time each day to praise God for who He is, what He has done and what He is yet to do. God bless you!
2 Chronicles 20:1-30
SAY THIS PRAYER
[Remember the things the Lord has done for you and begin to sing and praise Him, with your hands lifted high]
I command the spirit of heaviness to lose its grip on your life. Become an addicted ‘praiser’ now in Jesus name!
During one of the PHD services, daddy came to my seat and gave me a word that I would receive financial breakthrough. I fell under the power. The following day, my brother called and asked me for my account number. I sent it to him and immediately, he transferred a reasonable amount of money to me. Again, during the service, daddy asked for those in debt to drop a seed of faith believing for debt cancelation. I did so and left. Few days later, I went to see the man I owed. When he saw me, he told me to forget about the money I owe him. Hallelujah!
(You are next in line for a testimony!)
