Understanding The Mysteries Of Praise

When you get to your crossroad you need praise, praise is what to do when you don’t know what to do. (see Habakkuk 3:17).

O our God, will You not exercise judgment upon them? For we have no might to stand against this great company that is coming against us. We do not know what to do, but our eyes are upon You.
When he had consulted with the people, he appointed singers to sing to the Lord and praise Him in their holy [priestly] garments as they went out before the army, saying, Give thanks to the Lord, for His mercy and loving-kindness endure forever!
And when they began to sing and to praise, the Lord set ambushments against the men of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir who had come against Judah, and they were [self-] slaughtered;
For [suspecting betrayal] the men of Ammon and Moab rose against those of Mount Seir, utterly destroying them. And when they had made an end of the men of Seir, they all helped to destroy one another. (Chronicles 20:12,21-23)

When three nations rose against the Israelites, the wilderness experience must had taught them what to do in that kind of situation, they subscribed to praise and rest of the story was a dramatic display of divine intervention.

What Is Praise?

  • Praise is a mystery for the workings wonders in believers life. Who is like You, Lord, among the gods? Who is like You, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders. (Exodus 15:11)
  • Praise is a major weapon in any conflict Acts 25:26; 2 Chronicles 20:22-23), you’ve been taught that praise is a minor or subsidiary in a spiritual warfare, I want to let you know that praise is primary. Praise is a spiritual channel for transferring all of your battles to God. Your battle is over when God takes over your.
  • Praise is not an occasional acknowledgement of good deeds, it’s a lifestyle, you should consciously cultivate the habit of a praise lifestyle. Jesus, our perfect example had a custom of praise during His earthly ministry, and miracles erupted anytime He thanked God. When He needed to wake Lazarus, He gave thanks; when He needed to feed multitudes, He gave thanks, He always gave thanks, and that is the secret of His miracles.
  • Praise is where God lives. If you want to seek God, pray; if you want to see God, praise Him. Between seeking God and seeing God which is better? Seeing God of course. Don’t get it twisted, I am not against prayer, but while God sends angels to deliver answers to prayers; He come down Himself to see to the operation when you praise Him. But You are holy, O You who dwell in the praises of Israel. (Psalm 22:3).

What Are The Mysteries Of Praise?

A good understanding of the mysteries of praise will empower you to engage in praise on target (targeting situation or issues to be settled).

  1. The Mystery Of Divine Intervention. The night preceding the execution of Paul and Silas, as Paul and Silas entered into praise, God stepped into their affairs. A praiseful atmosphere is a ‘Godful’ atmosphere, a ‘Godful‘ atmosphere is a wonderful atmosphere. Again In 2 Chronicles 20:22, As the Israelites began to sing, the enemies turned against one another and killed themselves. Also, the wall of Jericho came down flat by the power of praise. Lastly, King David, a praise warrior, who confronted the most oppositions had no record of lost.
  2. The Mystery Of Multiplication. Appreciation equals multiplication, nothing goes down in the hands of an praise warrior. Before a seed can become a fruit-bearing tree, it needs water from rain or an irrigation system to survive, praise is that water that your other spiritual and financial seeds need to grow. If you sow a financial seed, like tithing, on Sunday and you complain throughout the week, you would be doing yourself an injustice by killing the seeds with the tares of complaining and murmurings. In John 6, when Jesus gave thanks, the five loaves of bread and two fishes turned into plenty. If you don’t thank God for where you are or what you have, you’ll never move to the next level or have more. Let the peoples praise You and give thanks to You, O God; let all the people praise and give thanks to You! The earth has yielded its harvest; God, even our own God, will bless us. Psalm 67:5-6
  3. The Mystery Of Supernatural Ideas. You can’t praise God and be stranded of ideas, Jesus always knew what to do due to His praise lifestyle (John 6:6). When He asked Philip where to get bread that could feed the multitude, He already knew what to do, it was impossible to find bread at the mountain side. There is fresh oil in praise, fresh oil means fresh revelation, and staled oil occurs throughout the remaining days of the week when you only praise God on Sundays. Again, praise is not an occasional acknowledgment of mighty works, it must be done as a lifestyle to maintain the freshness of supernatural revelation daily.
  4. The Mystery Of Supernatural Favour. Favor to covers your errors and colors efforts.  A student scored zero in an examination, the examiner was so angry and wrote two question marks on his script, fortunately for the candidate, it was recorded as seventy-seven out of a hundred marks which was more than enough to pass the exam. That’s what favor does. When the daughter of Herodias danced before king Herod, the king had no choice but to give her an open check, to ask whatever she desire. Likewise, if you danced before the king of kings, He will grant you an open check (or a banquet request) to ask whatever you may desire. (see Mathew 14:6; Mark 6:22).

Friend, If you are not depressed, you cannot be oppressed, the devil depresses people first to oppress them. Shake your feet from the dust, and make the devil commit suicide by tapping into the power of praise warfare.

Never Give Up


If people do not mock you; God cannot make you, we serve a God that turns nonentities into celebrities (Peter and others were uneducated but people took notice of them), and we serve a God that turns ordinary men into extraordinary men. Never listen to what they say, never allow their negative talks to haunt you and hold you back. They said you’ll never make it in life, you’re a failure (lies). God has the final say: Paul was on his way to Damascus to persecute Christians, and all the necessary documents had been signed before God arrested him and turned the rascal into an asset.

God turns the sons of nobody to somebody, very soon, those who say “who are you?” Will ask “how are you?” Stop listening to what the WORLD says, start haunting what the WORD says. The world may have facts but the word is the truth. And truths are superior to facts, facts are prone to failure but the truth can never fail. Keep obeying His commandments and believe.
When men are cast down, then thou shall say, there is lifting.” – Job 22:29

God will make you a topic of discussion, a center of attraction, no matter the opinions of people concerning you, follow your gut (conscience), chase your dream, and pursue your aspirations (don’t follow traditions). “Do not be conformed to this world.” Everyone is ‘jobbing‘ and you know that your true passion is business, forget about the traditions and chase after your dreams and vision, vision attracts provisions and you’ll become employers of labor by trusting God (vision attracts favor, people give to the vision, not the visionary). Don’t look for money look for a vision.

You don’t need to know somebody (a mortal man) to succeed in life, you only need to know God (Daniel 11:32), God is not after the legs of men because people are not reliable – only God can be trusted.

Your destiny in Christ is envious (Genesis 26:12-14), stop looking pitied, you’re wonderfully made in Christ, no matter what they said about you (your color, stature, or financial status), you’re the masterpiece of the maker, there is no difference between black and white, or whether you are yellow, brown, tan, you’ve equal right in Christ. We’re a people of equal destiny, the gospel of Christ is universal, whether you belong to the first world or third world, Jesus is for you and your destiny is glorious (Romans 8:29-30), we own the world together, you’re significant, you’re not a mistake.

Do not allow what your teacher, parents, guidance, siblings, or spouse said to hold you back in life, only what He says is valid.

Keep pressing, there’s always a light at the end of the tunnel, weeping is not permitted to go beyond a night, never give up, your breakthrough will artive. God has integrity, He is more faithful than you and me, as long as you’re demonstrating your faith in Him by obeying all His commandments, He will keep His covenant, the fact that you’re putting the word of God to work shows that you believe Him and your faith will deliver, all your secret tears will engender open rewards.

Don’t be afraid to identify with Jesus, It’s foolishness to be shameful of what is gainful, He denies people who could not identify with Him openly. Reach out to your friends, and family and tell them about Jesus today and He will answer your prayer.
