MFM Devotional For Today 2023 MESSAGE:
Praise is, without doubt, one of the toughest weapons of spiritual warfare. The operation of this weapon is strange. The weapon of praise may appear simple but its operation is complex. It is one weapon that has dribbled and confused the enemy. If you want to invite God into your battles make use of the weapon of praise.
As you go into warfare, you must be armed with the high praises of God in your mouth and the double-edged sword in your hand. This combination will unleash terror upon household wickedness and stubborn Pharaoh who have vowed not to let you go. This weapon is a subtle method for drawing God into your battle when you know that your power alone cannot handle some specific battles. As you fight with the sword, you also summon angelic assistance through the praises of God in your mouth since the Bible has declared in Psalm 22:3 “But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.
Tough battles can be fought when you pick up the weapon of praise. Making a joyful noise unto the Lord will always launch an arrow into the camp of the enemy. You need this weapon when you want your celebration to be complete. Use it when you want to magnetise your testimonies. A powerful weapon when you are fighting tough battles. It is a weapon you can make use of when you want power to change hands. Use this weapon when you want God to arise and fight for you.
Every warrior must know how to make use of the weapon of praise. When you offer extraordinary praise unto God, the Almighty puts on His regalia as man of war. Woe betides that enemy that remains on the field of battle at that point.
Praise takes the battle to the next level. The mystery of praises is that when it is used as a weapon, the Almighty rises on His feet and each time our Commander in Chief decides to go to the warfront Himself, all manner of terrible weapons will automatically be moved to the battlefield. The weapon of praise will place the camp of the enemy in jeopardy. Praises will ensure that there is monumental casualty among your stubborn pursuers.
The use of this weapon will make heads to roll among the rank and file of the power of the emptiers, the spirit of Herod, the power of household wickedness and the domain of ancestral powers.
Put this weapon to use today and God will give you the head of your Goliath, the horses of Pharaoh and his riders.
- Right there where you are, pick a song of praise and dance to the Lord.
- My Father, let Your praise on my lips confuse my enemies, in the name of Jesus.
- Thou weapon of praise, arise and silence every evil tongue speaking against my life, in the name of Jesus.
- I invoke the mystery of divine praise against every power that has vowed that I will not sing my song and dance my dance, in the name of Jesus.
- Lord, let the power of Your praise disgrace the enemy concerning my situation, in the name of Jesus.
- O Lord, let Your praise provoke my testimonies, in the name of Jesus.
- My Father, My Father, My Father, arise and inhabit my praise, in the name of Jesus.
