Praise is one of the vital buttons you need to press to access God’s presence.
Praise isn’t a spontaneous activity. It’s not occasional acknowledgement of good deeds. It’s the only authentic tool of transferring our battle to God. And when they began to sing and to praise, the Lord set ambushments against the children of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir, which were come against Judah; and they were smitten (2.Chr.20:22).
Praise warriors are always spectators in their fights.
Note: we are not achievers, but we are privilege receivers. I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing (Jn.15:5). You’ll be gathered by men for mishandling and destruction until you abide in Christ. If a man abide in me not, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into fire, and they are burned (Jn.15:6).
Praise is the cheapest way to invite God’s presence. But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praise of Israel (PS.22:3). Praise is where God live. And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang 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 bands were loosed (Acts.16:25-26).
Praise is the master key to access divine secrets. But my horn shalt thou exalt like the horn of an unicorn: I shall be anointed with fresh oil (PS.92:10).
Praise with understanding provokes God to increase our substance in all realms of life. And out of them shall proceed thanksgiving and the voice of them that make merry: and I will multiply them, and they shall not be few; I will also glorify them and they shall not be small (Jer.30:19). Then shalt the earth yield her increase; and God, even our own God, shall bless us (PS.67:6). 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 the fishes as much as they would (Jn.6:11).
Praise in the dance is the gateway to the King’s (God) favour. But when Herod’s birthday was kept, the daughter of Herodias danced before them and pleased Herod. Whereupon he promised with an oat to give whatsoever she would ask (Mat.14:6-7).
Praise in the middle of embarrassing situation is the cardinal mark of strong faith. Jn.6:11, Acts.16:25-26.
There are more vital buttons that you’ll need to press to operate in the supernatural but praise is a vital one.
