Anything can fail but obedience to scriptural instructions cannot fail. It is your subscription into the commandment of praise that release the supernatural. God is God, Light is Light, it doesn’t where you got it from. “For with thee there is fountain of life: in thy light we shall see light.” Ps. 36:11. In most cases, we get our light from the light of others. I got most of my light from Bishop Oyedepo and Pst. David Olugbemi.
The Two Mouths
You will be fretted and be despondent if you are not praiseful. God does not owe anyone anything, you owe God praise. Incase you have lost anything, God is the reason why you have not lost everything. Most Christians think there worries, anxieties, tears and weeping will moved God, this is another lie from the pit of hell. Hannah was fretted, she cried and weep and nothing happened. Until she put a seal on her seriousness, even she was weeping, but this time another kind of weeping, she began to pour out her soul to the lord, with lips moving only, she left the matter with God and went home to eat. Then, she got result. Now, Hannah, she spake in her heart; only her lips moved, but her voice was not heard. 1Sam.1:13. Most Christians make positive confessions with their Mouths, but their hearts are saying otherwise thinking that they can deceive God, this is hypocrisy, God pays more attention to what you say o the inside than what you say with your mouth. So we’ve two mouths. Before you can manifest the supernatural, you must train your heart to be in agreement with what you say with your mouth. You must be warned here, that when it comes to dislodging every opposition of the wicked, you must engage your mouth because the devil doesn’t hear what you say in your heart. “ For I will give you a mouth and a wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.” Lk.21:15
David had already killed Goliath with his mouth before the actual killing took place. There is a powerful mystery in the spoken word. “Death and life are in the power of the tongue.” Prov.18:21. Many Christians will make confession that they are healed with their mouth but inside their heart they are saying “this pain is killing me.” “Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and open unto the eyes of him whom we have to do.” Heb.4:13. Don’t ever think you can deceive God with your fake confessions.
Praise is God’s Dwelling
Back to praise, Praise is where God live, if you want to seek God, pray, if you want to see God, praise him. A praiseful atmosphere is a ‘Godful’ atmosphere, a ‘Godful’ atmosphere is a wonderful atmosphere. “But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praise of Israel.” PS.22:3.
Even if God is not blessing people again, I will still obey him in praise, in prayer, in fasting in and other platforms. Many Christians serve God on contracts. They have turned themselves to prayer projects. A praise lifestyle kills the ‘prayer project‘ mentality. Stop placing all kinds of demands on God, start thanking him. You don’t have to struggle with him to get him committed to your needs. I have seen so many frustrated prayer warriors, I have never seen any praise warrior being frustrated.
Praise is the pathway to revelation. Revelation equals wisdom and wisdom equals counsel. Counsel establishes every enterprise. You can’t praise God and lack direction. Divine insight is a core virtue of praise.“My horn shall thou exalt like the horn of an unicorn. And I shall be anointed with fresh oil.” PS.82:12.
Your abusive attacks on God will not move him. He means everything He says, don’t take God for granted. To take Him for granted is to be grounded in life. A glorious destiny can lie dormant for a lifetime until the victim plug into obedience. “But be ye the doers of the word, and hearers only, deceiving your own self.” James. 1:22. God hate grumblers and Murmurers, all those who murmured and complained were destroyed by the destroyers. If you don’t thank God for that one room apartment of yours that is where you will die. If you don’t thank God that little you have, multiplication is not in view. “Out of them shall proceed thanksgiving the voice of them that make merry, I will multiply them they shall not be small, and I will also glorify them they shall not be few.” Jer.30:19
Do you know that many Christians even when the are praying their heart will keep racing from one issue and the other, what to do with a disrespectful wife which must be punished, how to pay children’s school fees who were to resume in a week time. Thereby rendering the whole process ineffective. God has not called you to meditate on your problems, He has called you to meditate on His words. What to wear, what to eat are always clamouring for attentions. wash and iron that one cloth of yours. Wear it with pride and walk majestically. Stop looking pitiful and start looking beautiful. We are not entity of ‘pitiness‘, we are entity of ‘enviness‘. “For he had a possession of flocks, and possession of herds, and great store of servant: and the Philistines envied him.”Gen.26:14. Thank you Jesus.
