Topic: The Necessity Of Praise
[Seeds of Destiny 19 September 2019 Devotional]
Your praise disarms and destroys the enemy and gives rise to your victory in battle.
SCRIPTURE: Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a twoedged sword in their hand. Ps 149:6.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: When the praise of God is in your mouth, a sword is in your hand.
Praise is a spiritual force that connects humanity to the wonders of God. It is a spiritual force loaded with spiritual products. A session of praise in service is not an entertainment break but a time of high spiritual activity with high spiritual impact and results.
Now, let us explore the necessity of praise:
1. Praise, which is the expression of joy in the Lord, is key to Divine health and vitality:
In a world infested with diverse afflictions and all manner of missiles flying in the air, you need a therapy and medicine that is not physical. And that therapy and medicine is praise! (Proverbs 17:22).
Praise imparts life; it animates a person’s system with life. That is why the Bible says in Psalms 150:6 ‘Let everything that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord’
That is, as long as you are ready to praise the Lord, you will be supplied breath.
2. Praise is a weapon of vengeance and judgment against the enemy:
In Psalms 149:6, the Bible says ‘Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a twoedged sword in their hand…’
You see, when the praise of God is in your mouth, a sword of vengeance is in your hand.
1n 2 Chronicles 20:22-23, when the Ammonites, the Edomites and the Moabites gathered against the nation Judah, Judah began to praise God, and their enemies began to fight each other.
So, your praise disarms and destroys the enemy and gives rise to your victory in battle.
Remember this: when the praise of God is in your mouth, a sword is in your hand.
1.Make praising God a habit.
2.Whenever you are confronted, never forget to praise God; it is your weapon.
PRAYER: Lord, I receive the garment of praise, and as I praise You, let Your anger rest on my enemies, Lord in Jesus’ Name.
