Praise is one of the vital buttons that you must press to operate in the supernatural. Praise is not something that you do spontaneously or occasionally.
You are to thank God for what he has done, worship him for who he is and praise him for what he’ll do.
God is not moved by your moods, feelings, emotions and temperaments, or any of such things. Only if you can turn all your bitterness and complains into praise, you’ll experience the miraculous more in your life.
Blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me (Mat.11:6). In order words, curses is he who is offended in him.
Curse is a reversal of blessings. Your will courting curses on your life if you are in the habit of grumbling and complaining. Grumblers and Murmurers are programmed for destruction. Neither ye murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyers (1.Cor.10:10).
Stop looking at what God has not done. Start acknowledging for what he has done.
Praise provokes the manifestation of God’s presence. God’s aura surrounds you in a praiseful atmosphere and burst the prison doors in all sphere of life, And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God and the prisoners heard him. And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and everyone’s band were loosed (Acts.16:25-26) .
Praise is the gateway to revelation. But my horn shalt thou exalt like the horn of an unicorn: I shall be anointed with fresh oil (PS.92:10). Fresh oil here implies fresh revelation. Many – even pastors – are operating on stale oil. Only a praise lifestyle that gives you the access to fresh oil. There is no revolution without revelation.
In Jesus earthly ministry, whenever he was confronted with embarrassing situation, he gave thanks and miraculous flows.
At the mountain sides, When he needed to feed 5000 uninvited guest. it will take a huge amount of money to feed such multitudes. Jesus was too sure of the miraculous, he told his disciple to make the men sit down. He gave thanks and the supernatural exploded.
And Jesus took the loaves; and when he had given thanks, he distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to them that were set down; and likewise of the fishes as much as they would ( Jn.6:11).
When Jesus healed 11 lepers from their leprosy, only one came back to give thanks. Jesus asked about remaining 10 which means he want us to come back to thank him.
The one who came back received the second touch. The remaining ten, although they were healed, but obviously the first touch wasn’t enough. They would live with the scars and stumps of the disease for the rest of their lives.
Those who praise God this way end up with explosive miracles. If you don’t thank God for the joy you have today you’ll never flow in the miraculous. Your constant praise will move God to arrange for another experience that will bring more praise.
It doesn’t leave you with much choice, praise is a commandment, Let everything that hath breath praise the lord (Psm.150:6). If you wait for God to do something spectacular or drop something from the skies before you praise God, you’ll wait till eternity.
If you’re not joyful you’ll be fretful. Those who struggle more and had little results are those who have not added praise to their efforts. Most of my qualitative time before God are for praise. David appeared before God many times per day, most of which are for praise. This was the secret behind his victory over battles.
David faced the most incessant oppositions, wars and attacks during his reigns and overcame them all. David was a man after God’s heart and God must have showed him how to reach his heart.
The aces are in your hands, embrace the truth and live the overcomer’s life.
