PRAISE: GOD’S PLATFORM FOR SUPERNATURAL HELP
READ: Psalm 47:1-9
Psalm 47:1-9: Clap your hands, all peoples! Shout to God with loud songs of joy!
For the Lord, the Most High, is to be feared, a great king over all the earth.
He subdued peoples under us, and nations under our feet.
He chose our heritage for us, the pride of Jacob whom he loves. Selah
God has gone up with a shout, the Lord with the sound of a trumpet.
Sing praises to God, sing praises! Sing praises to our King, sing praises!
For God is the King of all the earth; sing praises with a psalm!
God reigns over the nations; God sits on his holy throne.
The princes of the peoples gather as the people of the God of Abraham. For the shields of the earth belong to God; he is highly exalted!
Clap your hands, all peoples! Shout to God with loud songs of joy! For the Lord, the Most High, is to be feared, a great king over all the earth. (Psalms 47:1-2)
Praise is not a religious entertainment, neither is it a psychological way of expressing emotions. It is a vital spiritual force that guarantees your victory in every battle. It is the force that guarantees your victory in every battle. It is the medium through which God takes over your battles. Praise is a medium through which God takes over your battles. Praise is a medium through which you execute vengeance on the wicked. Praise is the exaltation if God. It is one principal way of exalting God. Exalt only God in your life, business and career. That is the only way your business will not crash. That is the only way you will not go down in your career, because God is the one behind anything good in your life.
Whatever can’t stand God can’t stand praise. That is why the greatest battles in your life will always bow to praise. When you become “a lion of praise”, you cannot be stopped. When you become valiant in praise, you become more than a conqueror in life. You may not have might against your enemies, like the children of Israel before their enemies (2 Chro. 20:12), but you can invoke the might and omnipotence of God against them, through praise. No matter how great your enemies, you can put an end to their oppressions and harassment now, by handing over the battle to the Lord.
If you understand the mystery of praise, it will be impossible for your enemies to run you down, because praise is where God lives.
1. Oh God of heaven, give me the spirit of praise, in Jesus name.
2. My Father, my Father, let all the battles of my life bow to the power of praise today, in Jesus name.
3. I stop the harassment and humiliation of the enemies over the church in this land, in Jesus name.
