“Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee.”
“Then shall the earth yield her increase; and God, even our own God, shall bless us”
“God shall bless us; and all the ends of the earth shall fear him.”
The scriptures make us to understand that praise is a spiritual tool for making things to happen Psa. 67:5-7; Acts 16:25-27. The fundamental thing that happens when we praise God is that an atmosphere for God’s habitation is created, thereby bringing God’s active presence into the scene Psa. 22:3. This active presence of God is at the root of all the things that happens in the midst of praise and the secret to the power of praise Psa. 16:11. But for praise to be effective, we must engage in it with good understanding, and it must come from a heart filled with joy and gladness Psa. 47:7; Jms. 5:13.
How does praise effect turnaround in believer’s life.
God’s presence is the answer to all barriers in life Psa. 114:1-8. And praise will always secure the manifestation of the presence of God in the believer’s life Psa. 22:3; 47:5. Therefore, when the praise of a believer goes up, every barrier gives way Psa. 47:1-4.
Every time praise goes forth from the believer God’s presence is made manifest, all that buy and sell in the life of the believer are flushed out Mat. 21:9-12. This brings an end to the activities of the enemies in the believer’s life Mat. 21:16; Psa. 8:2.
The believer therefore can praise his way out of every form of shame and reproach into glory and honor Psa. 50:23; 1Sam. 2:30. No believer should therefore be helpless in life.
Jesus is Lord!
Father, in the name of Jesus, empower me by the Holy Spirit for the lifestyle of praise from today Acts 2:4,11.
The things that appear to be difficult should be your reason for thanksgiving and praise from now.
I decree everything shall turn for your good before this year is over!
The few days to the end of the year shall deliver glory beyond the previous days!
