The natural reigns until the supernatural appears. Hosanna means high praise. It means qualitative praise. Hosanna is the highest level of praise. “Make a joyful noise unto the God, all ye lands.” Ps.66:1. In the presence of God, there is fullness of joy.
Praise is the password to God’s presence. “Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him and bless his name.” PS.100:4.
Life leads to frustration and confusion outside God’s presence and depression becomes the order of the day. You can’t make things happened, it is God presence that manifest things. The reason why many believers are frustrated is because they have not added praise to their efforts. They think it was there smartness that made things come to be, they’ve forgotten the one behind it.
Thanksgiving is the seal for answered prayers. “Be careful if nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.” Phil.4:6. This scripture places emphasis on thanksgiving by using the conjunction ‘with‘. That is, thanksgiving is the seal for answered prayers.
Hannah became fretted and despondent, she cried and worried, until she put a seal of thanksgiving on her prayer, her desires was farfetched. She made a vow to return her son back to God, thereby acknowledging God as the doer of the work. Then, she stopped crying and went home to eat and she got her baby.
Get this straight: Your worries and cries will not move God. God does not owe you anything, you owe God thanksgiving and praise. The issue that will drive away sleep from you is not the one which God will move towards.
Praising God in the midst of conflicting situation is a sign of great faith. This kind of praise got God intoxicated and the supernatural erupted, and will makes God to generously grant your heart desires. It had gotten prison doors opened, chains were loosed, unleashed divine favour. “And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed and sand praises unto God and the prisoners heard them. And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundation of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and everyone’s band were loosed.” Acts.16:25-26. Strange things happen in Praise, you’re the next to experience the supernatural.
Complains and grumblings have made many believers to get bitter with God, thereby, magnified there problems out of proportion. It doesn’t leave you with much choice, praise is a commandment. “Let everything that hath breath praise the lord.” PS.150:6.
Breath not bread is the only requirement for praise, to get involved in the Hosanna(high praise) kind of praise. If you have ever lost anything, God is the reason why you have never lost everything. You will be fretful if you are not joyful. There is no situation that can be as hopeless as the valley of dry bones in Ez.37. Wear the garment of Praise and praise God in the dance irrespective of status, age, position and title.
