GOD HAS WHAT IT TAKES
You’re not adding to God, you’re adding to yourself. You’re not helping God, you’re helping yourself. You can preach but the Holy Spirit is the one that pricks.
God has what it takes to win souls by Himself, without our engagements. God can raise stones to shout Hosannah, if men refuse to praise Him.
He has what it takes to promote His project (God has a budget for every kingdom’s project here on earth).
Every scriptural commandment is for our benefit. God has not commanded us in order to grieve us but to bless us. He has not commanded us in order to punish us but to ‘polish‘ us.
For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments; and his commandments are not grievous (1 John.5:3).
CARRY A REWARD MENTALITY
You’re not working
for God, you’re working with God. You’re partnering with God – that isn’t meant to cagoule you. In a partnership, every active partner is entitled to a dividend. So also, you can’t genuinely partner with God and not receive His dividend. You’re like a shareholder in God’s kingdom.
Serving God is not a waste of time. You’re not serving God for
nothing but for something (have expectations). Results are proofs of your authentic stewardships. God isn’t a taskmaster, He is a paymaster. God is not looking for who to use but who to bless. God doesn’t use people, He blesses people.
All scriptural commandments are for our profiting. Serving God does not reduce people, it increases people. God is a God of multiplication. You can’t genuinely serve God and be small.
Among other things, praise is a commandment (it leaves you with no option), Let everything that hath breath, praise the lord (Psalm.150:6), and obedience is a requirement for the release of supernatural blessings over your life. You can’t praise God as a lifestyle and be few. Appreciation equals multiplication.
There is fresh oil in a praise lifestyle. Fresh oil means fresh revelation. Many people are operating on a stale oil. You need to access fresh oil to make things happen in life. Manifestation is a function if revelation.
There is supernatural presence in praise. If you want to SEEK God, pray; if you want to SEE God, praise Him. Praise is the cheapest spiritual medium to provoke the release of divine presence. You will see God practically in action when you get into praise.
You’re not sad because things are bad, things are bad because you’re sad. Turn all your bitterness, grumblings and complains into praise and thanksgiving. Acknowledge Him for who He is, what He has done and what He will do.
Praising God in the midst of seemingly hopeless situation is a sign of strong faith (Acts.16:25).
There is divine favour in praise. Favour colours your errors and covers your efforts. God is the king, when you dance shamelessly before the king, He will be moved and give you a free ticket to ask anything you want.
And when the daughter of the said Herodias came in, and danced, and pleased Herod and them that sat with him, the king said unto the damsel, Ask of me whatsoever thou wilt, and I will give it thee (Mat.6:22).
It takes the wine of praise to get God intoxicated and cause blessings to be rained upon your life.
I believe that every new generation is an improvement on the previous ones. This generation of ours will give lives new meanings, more than our predecessors in the mighty name of Jesus.
