Victory Through Praise. Sermon And Prayer Points By Pastor E A Adeboye

Psalms_113-3: From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the LORD'S name is to be praised

Psalms_113-3: From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the LORD’S name is to be praised

Memorise

And when they began to sing and to praise, the LORD set ambushments against the children of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, which were come against Judah; and they were smitten.
2 Chronicles 20:22

Read

2 Chronicles 20:21-24
21 And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed singers unto the LORD, and that should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army, and to say, Praise the LORD; for his mercy endureth for ever.
22 And when they began to sing and to praise, the LORD set ambushments against the children of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, which were come against Judah; and they were smitten.
23 For the children of Ammon and Moab stood up against the inhabitants of mount Seir, utterly to slay and destroy them: and when they had made an end of the inhabitants of Seir, every one helped to destroy another.
24 And when Judah came toward the watch tower in the wilderness, they looked unto the multitude, and, behold, they were dead bodies fallen to the earth, and none escaped.

Message

Victory is generally presented in the Bible as an act of God. From Genesis to Revelation, God is always presented as the source of all victory, which He grants to those who obey His commands and out their trust and confidence in Him. Wherever you turn to in the Scripture, the principle holds true.
And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a show of them openly, triumphing over then in it.
Colossians 2:15
In essence, God has destroyed the value and quality of our enemies and has also put their failure, disgrace and shame in open display for all to see. Victory is always presented in the Bible as achieved by God without human intervention. This reality make it absolutely necessary to praise God whenever we are confronted by the enemy, knowing that victory is assured in Jesus’ name.
The Bible also presents praise as a spiritual language that can reach beyond the intellect to touch the heart of God. Whenever God wants to do something really supernatural, He calls for an army of musical warriors, to bombard the stronghold of the enemy. Such was the case in the time of Jehoshaphat King of Judah who deployed divine Warriors, AN ARMY WORSHIPPERS, to march into battle with musical instruments in their hands and songs of praises in their mouths. As they praised and worshipped God, he rose on their behalf and completely destroyed all their enemies. 2 Chronicles 20:22 says
“And when they began to sing and to praise, the LORD set ambushments against the children of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, which were come against Judah; and they were smitten.”
What I know for sure is that if you praise God, His enemies cannot standby. Some 30 years ago, we went to Otukpo town in the middle region of Nigeria for a programme, with some students. I planned to talk on divine healing. Then , we began to praise God so intensely that the glory of God descended and I forgot every other Scripture I had planned for the next sermon except Luke 1:37. Suddenly, there were clusters of students kneeling and praying in tongues though they had never heard of the Holy Ghost baptism before. Others joined them praying in tongues and the end of the day I could not preach. Go ahead now, praise God until you bring down His glory.

Key Point

As you worship God today, He will arise and scatter all your enemies in the mighty name of Jesus.
Mark 7:1-9:13
Job 18:20-19:12

Psalms_100-2: Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing

Psalms_100-2: Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing

I Will Never Lose Sight Of God’s Promises Concerning Me

I Will Never Lose Sight Of God’s Promises Concerning Me

2-Peter_1-4: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust

2-Peter_1-4: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust

“That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us”.

Hebrews 6:18 (KJV)

One of the devil’s strategies is to magnify the challenges you are facing so that you lose sight of God’s promises. Beloved, I came your way today to tell you to lay hold on the promises. You may be experiencing a season of contradictions but don’t give up. Hold on to His word. He that has spoken is able to bring anything to pass. You will not be denied.

Many may have seen you without hope, but from the ashes of failure and hopelessness God will show you before them all. The same people who saw you in a sorry state will see you with your testimony. This is your time of prophetic help. God is coming back to visit you. You will experience a new beginning. The person or the people whom God has sent to help you need not be your friends; they might not even like your face, but they will help you because God has commissioned them to do so. You will shine your light. You will manifest, and your dreams will come true.

I therefore challenge you today to refuse to be refused. Push back the table, hold on to the horn of the altar, and tell the devil, eyeball to eyeball, “Enough is enough.” You have all that it takes to enforce the victory that Jesus wrought on the cross. It is the dawn of a new day. The stagnation, delay, postponement, and indeed anything else that has held you bound are broken today. There is a canopy of glory above you. The delay is over. You are about to change location. It has started to rain for the drought is over!

Hebrews 6:11-18

Romans 4:17-20

Numbers 23:19

Isaiah 14:27

Ezekiel 16-17

James 3

Thank You Jesus!

James_1-12-1: Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him

God Sees Only The Best In Me

God Sees Only The Best In Me

(As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.
Romans 4:17

Many a time, when we look at ourselves, we don’t see what we can become. But when God looks at us, He sees what we can become by His grace.

When Jesus first saw Simon, whose name in Greek means “reed”, He changed his name to “Peter”, which means “rock”. But did Peter instantly become someone with the characteristics of a rock—solid, stable and unshakable? No, for a long time, he continued to act like a reed that bends every which way the wind blows.

Once, when Peter saw Jesus walking on water, he took a bold step of faith and said, “Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water.” Then, as he was walking on the water, he saw the boisterous wind, got scared and when he began to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!” (Matthew 14:28–30) Another time, he said, “Lord, I am ready to go with You, both to prison and to death.” (Luke 22:33) Then, a few hours later, he denied knowing Jesus not once, but three times. (Luke 22:54–62)

Yet, throughout his reed-like behavior, Jesus kept calling him “rock” until one day, how Jesus saw him began to take root in him. That day, on the Day of Pentecost, Peter stood up to preach and 3,000 people were saved! (Acts 2:41) Peter had indeed become a rock, a pillar in the early church.

That was how Jesus transformed Peter. And that is how God wants us to change the people and situations in our lives.

God did not tell us to call those things which exist as they exist. What is the point of stating the obvious? It is not going to change anything. No, God tells us to call those things which do not exist as though they did, and they will!

1-Samuel_2-2: There is none holy as the LORD: for there is none beside thee: neither is there any rock like our God

1-Samuel_2-2: There is none holy as the LORD: for there is none beside thee: neither is there any rock like our God

Power Of God. Dunamis

Acts_1-8: But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

Acts_1-8: But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

Power Of God. Dunamis

“But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth”

Acts 1:8
Jesus Said You Shall Receive Power After The Holy Ghost Is Come Upon You. In The Greek Rendering, The Word Translated “Power” Is ‘Dunamis’. So What Jesus Actually Said Was “And You Shall Receive Dunamis After That The Holy Ghost Is Come Upon You.” What Is Dunamis? It’s A Special Kind Of Power. It’s Inherent Power That Functions Like A Dynamo. The Word “Dynamo” Comes From A Greek Word “Dunamis” That’s Where The English Word “Dynamite” A Powerful Explosive, Is Derived From As Well. Knowing How A Dynamo Functions Will Help Us Understand What Dunamis Is. That Will In Turn Tell Us What Jesus Meant When He Said, “Ye Shall Receive Dunamis.

A Dynamo Is A Special Kind Of Machine. You Get It Started Mechanically, Either By Turning A Knob Or Pushing A Button. When It Starts, It Produces Electrical Power And Then Converts Some Of That Electrical Power Back Into Mechanical Power To Cause The Machine To Go On And Produce More Electrical Power. It Doesn’t Need Help From Anywhere; It’s A Self-Converter! It Has In-Built Ability To Convert Mechanical Power To Electrical Power And Vice Versa. It Just Keep Going On Without Any External Help. So When Jesus Said, “You Shall Receive Dunamis” He Meant, “You Shall Receive Inherent Power Of God That Functions Like Dynamo!” That’s What You Got When You Receive The Holy Spirit. You Receive The Inherent Dynamic Ability Of God To Cause Changes. That Power Is Independent Of Any Other Power But God.

This Power Resides In You Today! You May Have Been Told That You Were Born An Asthmatic; It Doesn’t Make Any Difference Now, Because You Can Change It! Maybe You Were Born With A Deformed Heart, It Doesn’t Matter Anymore. Now That You’re Born Again And You Have The Holy Spirit In You, You Can Change Anything As You Activate That Power Within You.

Confession:
I Have Within Me The Power Of The Most High God! I Have The Inherent Dynamic Ability To Cause Changes. I Declare That I Am Able To Change Every Negative Situation, Because I Recognize The Inherent Power Of God That’s At Work In Me; I Am Full Of God’s Might And The Excellency Of This Power Is Indeed Of God!

But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

2 Corinthians 4:7

But truly I am full of power by the spirit of the LORD, and of judgment, and of might, to declare unto Jacob his transgression, and to Israel his sin.

Micah 3:8

God does not need you to defeat the devil. Jesus has already done it and given you the victory

God does not need you to defeat the devil. Jesus has already done it and given you the victory

1-John_5-4-3: For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith

1-John_5-4-3: For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith

Ephesians 6:11
Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

Ephesians_6-13: Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand

Ephesians_6-13: Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand

God does not need you to defeat the devil today. Jesus has already done it and given you the victory. (Colossians 2:15, Romans 8:37) Your part is to enforce the victory by simply standing your ground, which is victory ground. In other words, you “fight” from victory ground by standing. You don’t fight for victory.

Ephesians_6-11: Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil

Ephesians_6-11: Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil

In Ephesians 6:10–18, the passage on spiritual warfare, the word “wrestle” appears only once (verse 12), while the word “stand” appears four times—“stand against the wiles of the devil”, “withstand in the evil day”, “having done all, to stand”, “Stand therefore”. (Verses 11, 13–14) Four times the Holy Spirit tells us to stand. Yet, many Christian are focusing on wrestling their way to victory!

2-Timothy_2-19: Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity

2-Timothy_2-19: Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity

My friend, you are already on victory ground. You already have everything in Christ. (1 Corinthians 3:21, 23) You are already blessed with every spiritual blessing in Christ. (Ephesians 1:3). The devil knows this. And that is why his tactic is to deceive you and make you think that you don’t have the victory.

But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ

But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ

So when he attacks you by saying, “Look at that small sum in your bank account! How are you going to pay the bills?stand your ground. Declare, “I am not trying to be rich. I am already blessed in Christ!” It doesn’t matter how much you have in the bank. You are richly supplied because you are in Christ. And as the need arises, the supply will be there if you believe it.

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

It is the same with healing. The devil will try to attack you with symptoms in your body. He will try to put pain in your body, and make you feel weak here and there, so that you think that you are still sick. He is trying to make you believe that you don’t have your healing. That is the time to be conscious of Jesus’ finished work and declare, “I am not trying to get healed, I am healed! I am standing on the victory ground which Jesus has given me!

Beloved, it makes a world of difference when you fight from victory and not for victory!
