A Life Of Worship.

John_10-11: I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.

John_10-11: I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.

“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.

James 4

Thank You Jesus.

Praise Drives The Enemy Away

Praise Drives The Enemy Away

Psalms_100-4: Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

Psalms_100-4: Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

I will declare Your name to My brethren; in the midst of the assembly I will praise You.

Psalm 22:22, NKJV

One way to drive Satan to distraction, and to overcome him, is through praise of Jesus. Regardless of whether the enemy is a visible foe in front of us like the Scribes and Pharisees or an invisible foe outside of us like the devil himself or an invisible foe inside of us like depression, praise drives the enemy away. In the very prophecy that describes Jesus’ inmost thoughts and feelings as He hung on the cross, tortured, bleeding, and dying, the psalmist declared, “But You are holy, enthroned in the praises . . .” of Your people (Ps. 22:3, NKJV). In other words, He is enthroned-He rules in power, authority, and supremacy-through our praise.

In some supernatural way, praise ushers the authority of God into any given situation. One practical way to maintain your praise is, every time you pray, to begin your prayer with praise. First praise God for Who He is. Then praise Him for something He has done for you. Start now!

Thank You Jesus!

Lethal Weapon Of Spiritual Warfare. Engage In Wonder-Working Praise, By Pastor E A Adeboye

Pastor E A Adeboye. Open Heavens. RCCG

Pastor E A Adeboye. Open Heavens. RCCG

Memorise:

But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.

Psalm 22:3

Read: Acts 16:25-26

25  And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them.

26  And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one’s bands were loosed.

Psalms_9-1: I will praise thee, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy marvellous works.

Psalms_9-1: I will praise thee, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy marvellous works.

Message

Praise directed towards God is a lethal weapon of spiritual warfare. This is so because God inhabits the praises of His people. Children of God must not joke with their praise life. It would be logical to say that if prayer is the “master key”, then praise is the “principal key”. You need to catch the revelation of what the Psalmist is saying in Psalm 22:3:

 “But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.”

 

In other words, God, the wonder-working Father, dwells in the praises of His people. The implication of this revelation is that wherever God is, the supernatural is always present. In the habitation of the Almighty, wonder-working power is present and breakthrough is commonplace. However, we must get it right; it is the praise we channel towards God that He receives. God will only take what you give to Him. Those who sing the praise of pastors or of themselves, particularly during testimony time, are missing a great point without knowing it. It is not your prayer or the prayer of your pastor that did the wonders; rather, it is the mercy of God in action upon your life. He alone deserves your praise.

Although Paul and Silas were kept in prison, they did something unusual of people in trouble. Even when people know that they are the architect of their own problems, they still try to justify themselves by raining curses on their tormentors. This was not the attitude of Paul and Silas. Their case was different because they were apprehended for preaching the gospel. They were thoroughly beaten and cast into prison. While they sang praises, the Almighty God came to inhabit their praises. This should not be surprising, because the promises of God are Yea and Amen. He had already promised that He would inhabit the praises of His people. Since this is true, what prison gate could have resisted the coming of the King of glory? None! It is written:

“Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.”

Psalm 24:7

Paul and Silas engaged in wonder-working praise and they experienced wonders in their ministries. God is no respecter of persons; what He did for them, He can do for you also. Learn to engage in the praise of God to unleash His wonder-working power. I pray that as you engage in the praise of the Almighty God, you shall receive the wonders of a life-time in Jesus’ Name.

Action Point:

Devote at least one hour to the praise of God the Almighty without asking for anything.

May God Bless Nigeria, America And Israel And Take Care Of Us; May God Make His Face Shine Upon Us, And Be Gracious To Us; May The Lord Lift Up His Countenance Upon Us, And Give Us Peace, In Jesus Christ Name, We Pray! Amen!

May The Grace The Lord Jesus Christ, And The Love Of God, And The Fellowship Of The Holy Spirit Be With You All. Amen!

United in Praise

Who is praising Jesus because you are? If your praise – and mine – is interrupted by . . .

our circumstances or our complaints,

our selfishness or our suffering,

our desires or our depression,

our indifference or our insistence,

or by anything at all . . .

the light will grow dim in our lives as we sink into the mire of self, and instead of causing others to praise Him, we will drag them down into the darkness with us.

So would you praise Him? And keep on praising Him! Praise Him for __________. You fill in the blank with an attribute of Christ.

Blessings

 

May the LORD bless Nigeria, American and Israel and take care of us; May the LORD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the Lord lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!

Praise comes naturally when you count your blessings

They shall be fresh and flourishing. —Psalm 92:14

In Psalm 92, the poet begins with a commendation of praise: “It is good to give thanks to the Lord.” Good for what? Good for you and me. It does our soul a world of good to turn from anxious thoughts and fill our days with prayerful praise; good to greet each morning with songs of thanksgiving, for such praise makes us glad. It lifts us out of gloom and replaces our sadness with cheerful songs at the “works of [His] hands” (v.4). And what is that work? The work He is doing in us!

Here’s one of my most cherished metaphors: “The righteous shall flourish like a palm tree, he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon. Those who are planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God. They shall still bear fruit in old age; they shall be fresh and flourishing” (vv.12-14).

Palms are symbols of towering beauty and cedars of unbending strength. These are the characteristics of those who have been “planted in the house of the Lord” (v.13). Their roots go down into the soil of God’s unquenchable love.

Do you think your usefulness to God is over? Continue in God’s Word, rooted and grounded in Christ, drinking in His love and faithfulness. Then, no matter your age, you will bear fruit and be “fresh and flourishing.” —David Roper

From your heart give God your praise
For His blessings all your days;
Lift your voice to God above—
God of mercy, God of love. —Hess

May Our God The Almighty prosper Nigeria and Israel and defend us from all our enemies in Jesus Christ Name, Amen!
