“God is well known in Judah, in Israel, He is a household name. He keeps a house in Salem, His own suite of rooms in Zion. That’s where, using arrows for kindling. He made a bonfire of weapons of war”. Psalm 76:1-3 (MSG)
According to the psalmist, God is known in Judah (praise). The God we serve dwells in the midst of praise and if you can praise Him today, then you are on your way to obtaining the victory because He will reveal Himself to you and demonstrate His power on your behalf. Beloved one of the greatest weapons we fail to access as believers is praise. Praise is a powerful weapon that deals a deadly blow on the adversary. Let us take a cue from the life of King David, the man who wrote most of the Psalms in the Bible.
Child of God, King David was a man who understood how to bless the Lord even when it was not convenient to do so. Little wonder he said in Psalm 34:1. “I will bless the Lord at all times; His praises shall continually be in my mouth.” He made a lifelong commitment to bless the name of the Lord irrespective of the events happening around him. He made a commitment to praise God, come rain or shine, in season and out of season.
Beloved, have you ever wondered how God elevated David from the backside of the desert to the palace? Have you also wondered how David got recommended to the king in 1 Samuel 16? Look at what King Saul said, to Jesse (David’s father) in verse 19, “send me David thy son, which is with the sheep” He learnt to grow in the backside of the desert worshipping God. Most likely the people who recommended him to the King heard him playing and singing while tending the sheep. David did not bother that his brothers left him in the desert. He was not consumed with the fact that the assignment he was given was lowly and uninteresting. For David, his commitment to a life of worship lifted him up. It was from the backside of the desert that he got the invitation to the palace. I declare to you today that as you commit yourself to a life of praise, your lifting is sure and your promotion shall come in Jesus name.
1 Samuel 16:1-23
Thank You Jesus.
