Praise and its wonders


Praise and its wonders

A praiseful atmosphere is a ‘Godful’ atmosphere; a ‘Godful’ atmosphere; and a ‘Godful’ atmosphere is a wonderful atmosphere.

Acts 16:25-26 KJV
And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them. [26] And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one’s bands were loosed.

What does it requires to praise God? The answer is “breath.” It’s let everything that has breathpraise the lord – not “bread” – as long as you are still breathing you owe God praise.

Psalm 150:6 KJV
“Let every thing that hath breath praise the Lord . Praise ye the Lord.”

In everything (not for everything) praise the lord – 1.Thes.5:18

Praise is where God live. It’s God’s dwelling place. It’s His habitation.

Psalm 22:3 KJV
“But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.”

If you want to seek God, pray. If you want to see God, praise Him.

Praise is not occasional/spontaneous acknowledgment of good deeds. It doesn’t leaves with much options, praise is a commandment (Psalm.150:6).

Get this straight: if you wait for something spectacular to happen before you praise God, you will wait forever.

However, If you must enjoy the best of God obedience is mandatory (Deu.28:1-3).

There is divine ideas in praise. You can’t praise God and be stranded of ideas in life. It’s my prayer you won’t get to a point where you will no longer know what to do again. Jesus Christ, during His earthly ministry was never stranded of what to do.

John 6:6 KJV
“And this he said to prove him: for he himself knew what he would do.”

Anytime that He was confronted with seemingly impossible situation, He gave thanks and the supernatural flows.

Praise expands people – appreciation equals multiplication. You can’t praise God and be small.

Psalm 67:6 KJV
“Then shall the earth yield her increase; and God, even our own God, shall bless us.”

Jeremiah 30:19 KJV
“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.”

Praise provokes the release of God’s presence. There is no mortal man that can cause things to happen on His own. Trying to lift your problem without the Supernatural(God) is like trying lift a lorry without a jack. It’s God’s presence that makes things happen. God is the supernatural. Praise engenders the release of the supernatural. The supernatural is the backbone of life( every natural happening has it’s supernatural antecedent).

Praise warfare is the platform where all our battles are transfered unto God. Praise warriors become spectators in their own fights.

2 Chronicles 20:22 KJV
“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 Chronicles 20:23 KJV
“For the children of Ammon and Moab stood up against the inhabitants of mount Seir, utterly to slay and destroy them : and when they had made an end of the inhabitants of Seir, every one helped to destroy another.”

It’s my prayer as you put on the garment of praise every opposition that is confronting you will help to kill one another in the name of Jesus.

King David faced the most incessant oppositions during his time but he overcame them all because he was an addicted praise warrior.

Hear this: Praise connects humanity with divinity.

In conclusion, God does not owe any natural man for anything, you owe Him obedience to the injunction of praise.
I have seen so many frustrated prayer warriors, but I have never seen a frustrated praise warrior. Things are bad because you are sad; you are not sad because things are bad. Friend, Only If you can turn all your bitterness, despondencies, grumblings, and hatreds into praise you will be setting you foot on a pedestal of enthronement and multiplication, favour, ideas, etc can never be farfetched.

OBEDIENCE – THE PATHWAY TO SUPERNATURAL REWARDS


OBEDIENCE - The pathway to supernatural rewards

Continues…

How can I start following and obeying God’s commands?

You are who or  what you follow and who or what you follow determines who or what follows you.

1). Let kingdom advancement prayer become a part and parcel of your life. Let it become an habit to intercede or stand in gap for others who are lost and unsaved to be convicted and converted into Christ.

We saw in book of Luke.2:34 that prayer is a platform of service which is available for a lifetime. Are you not happy to hear that, Hannah at the age of 84 served God in the temple by praying kingdom advancement prayer day and night.

Luke 2:37 KJV
“And she was a widow of about fourscore and four years, which departed not from the temple, but served God with fastings and prayers night and day.”

Kingdom advancement prayer is a commandment. The word “when” in Mat.6:6 indicates that there is period that you must pray. And in Mat.6:9, after thanksgiving, the next item of priority is the God’s kingdom before asking for bread and butter and in verse 33, we are ordered to seek first the God’s kingdom if we must enjoy all kinds of seditions.

The truth is that most of our prayers are self-centered in nature. Only if we can turn all our demands into kingdom oriented prayers the supernatural grace will be flowing  cheaply.

2). Engage in soul winning – Soul winning is not a gift neither a talent. Today, many Christians mostly say that they don’t have the gift of soul winning, this is another lie from the pit of hell. Soul winning is a God giving mandate for every believer which facilitates answered prayers and divine favour.

John 15:16 KJV
“Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.”

Other scriptural reference: JER. 1:5

3). Subscribe Into the covenant platform of seed time and harvest time. The natural man’s law States that “A bird at hand is worth more than two in the bush” this is a discounting principle on the ground of facts and assumptions.

On the contrary, the supernatural law states that “It’s more blessed to give than to receiving” Until you become an excited giver you will die poor irrespective of your involvement in church activities.

Luke 6:38 KJV
“Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.”

Other scriptural reference : PS.126:5-6

4). Consciously cultivate the attitude of praise – Praise is commandment, let everything that has breath praise the lord (PS.150:6). It’s where God lives, God inhabits the praise of Israel. If you want to seek God pray, if you want to see God praise Him (PS.22:3).

Don’t wait until something spectacular happen before you put on the garment of praise. Appreciation equals multiplication. The reason may are few and small in life is because they have been disobeying the commandment of praise.

Jeremiah 30:19 KJV
“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.”

Psalm 67:5-6 KJV
“Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee. [6] Then shall the earth yield her increase; and God, even our own God, shall bless us.”

5). Let your engagement be mixed with faith – As you are putting all the steps listed above into work also let it be mixed with faith – Faith is simply seeing the invincible and believing the impossible. Without faith it’s impossible to please God (Heb.11:6).

Listen to this: Let both what you think and say agree with each other. This the best principle of faith. You are what you think (Prov.22:3) and it’s what you can boldly declare with your mouth that God will confirmed.

“Death and life are in the power of the tongue” – Prov.18:23

 

 

Antidotes for anger


Antidotes for anger

Renew your mind – ever since the fell of the fallen angel (the devil or wicked one) every imagination of men have been towards evil continuously (Gen.6:5). This is why you must reprogram yourself by thinking positively. You’re what you think and anger has a strong connection with your thought. Your mind is the devil’s primary object of attack.

Listen to this: before you can be liberated from the world of hatred, emptiness, bitterness, malice and anger; let there first be a casting down of all mind debris. Your mind can either make you or break you.

If God who is the creator of the universe and all which are in it – including you off course – thinks and thinks positively, then you and I have no choice than to follow the same principle.

Jeremiah 29:11 KJV
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord , thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

Do all things without murmurings and disputings (Phil.2:14) – wouldn’t it make a news if I’m caught in a brawl? While murmurings will mess up your situation, complains will complicate your matters. It’s uncommon this day to hear that “situations in the country are bad” “we are feeling the heat.” The truth is that there is nobody who is not feeling the heat but the way we manage ourselves is different from each other. Those who grumbled this way are programmed for destruction.

1 Corinthians 10:10 KJV
Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer.

The Antidotes of Praises and Thanksgiving – We thank God for what He has done, we praise Him for what He will do and we worship Him for who He is. Those who struggle more and had little or no result are in the company of those who have not added praise to their efforts. If you’re not joyful you will be fretful. It leaves you with no option as praise is a commandment (Psalm.150:6). Until you maintain a constant praise lifestyle, the spirit of destructive anger remains your neighbour. Only if you can turn all your bitterness into praises and thanksgiving your life will be experiencing all kinds of additions and multiplications on every side (Jer.30:19).

 

 

My Christmas’ post


My Christmas' post

Merry Christmas and happy New Year in advance to you, my dear readers. Happy boxing day! I wish you all the best in this festive period. Thank you for supporting this blog all year round. Thanks for the likes and comments. Thank you for taking your time to stop by and read. God bless you all.

Onto the post…

This is a season of celebration and  thanksgiving. Seize this moments to key into the commandment of praise. Sit down, flash back and reflect on what God has done in your life. Use this opportunity to acknowledge God for the gift of blessings and protections that he has rained into your life and family since the year began.

Be sensitive of the devil devices and craftiness. This isn’t the time to complain, murmur neither grumble. All those that grumbled in the wilderness were consumed by the destroyers (1.cor.10:10). The scripture says that you should do all things without murmuring and disputing (Phil.2:14).

Trust me, if you can turn all your bitterness into celebration; the miraculous would be flowing more in all spheres of life. You’re not sad because things are bad; things are bad because you’re sad. To praise in the midst of hopeless circumstance is a sign of strong faith (Acts.16:25-26)

Once again, this is not the time to be fretted and worried. If you think that your so much worries will move God, this is another lie from the pit of hell.

Hannah was bittered and worried. Despondency and weariness held grip on her. But until  she went home rejoicing, her answer was not in view.

Year TWENTY NINETEEN is the year to start and remain (in case you’ve started) committed to God’s will. Will power, new year resolution and character won’t work.

Listen to this: There is a spirit of disobedience behind every act of disobedience. The spirit of disobedience is the one behind drinking, fornication, adultery, smoking, lieing, backbiting, corruption, etc

Ephesians 2:2 KJV
Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:

New year resolution will not work! You need the baptism of the spirit of obedience to destroy the spirit of disobedience at work.

Ezekiel 36:27 KJV
And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them .

Good news: the spirit of obedience is from above while the spirit of disobedience is from beneath and He that come from above is above all (John.3:31)

 

 

 

 

A humble heart – humility


A humble heart

Continues…

(2). Maintain a closed proximity with God through the altar of prayer – the highest display of arrogance is to be prayer (spiritual) irresponsible. A prayer house is a power house. The entire world believe there is no a mountain that a prayer can’t made plain.

Matthew 17:20 KJV
“And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.”

1 Thessalonians 5:17 KJV
“Pray without ceasing.”

Luke 18:1 KJV
“And he spake a parable unto them to this end , that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;”

(3). Maintain a praise lifestyle : Praise is one of the surest platforms where the supernatural grace flows. If you are not joyful you will be fretful. For instance, King David who faced the most incessant oppositions during his reign but had victory over them all as a result of his praise lifestyle. He danced shamelessly to king; even with his Royal apparel – breaking all royal protocols.

It’s foolishness to be shameful of what is gainful. As you put on the garment of praise and dance before the king irrespective of your age, class, position or  tiltle; you are riding majestically into the thrown of favour. No battle of life will overcome you. Amen.

 

 

 

The backbone of life


The backbone of lifeThe backbone of life

Every natural happening has its supernatural antecedent. The supernatural is the backbone of life. God is the supernatural. It’s the control room of life.

 

Listen to me: where you are is smaller than where God is taking you to. God has no problem in expanding you but you must remember to acknowledge Him as the ONE behind it.

 

The race is not to the swift neither is the battle belongs to the strong. Without God you can do nothing. If you are not abiding in Christ, you will be gathered into fire for destruction by fellow humans.

 

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. If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them Into fire, and they are burned.” Jn.15:5-6

 

Trying to lift your problem without the supernatural (God) is like trying to lift a lorry without a jack. Living your life outside God’s commandments is like living without purpose. A life that is based on “law of accident”. A life without course. A shapeless life. Those who live this way are cheaply intimated and buffeted by the wicked one.

 

Many – though born again Christian -easily forget the one behind it after they are blessed. They think it was their smartness that made things happen. Those who are smarter than them are in the grave. This is why God will never take them to the next level.

 

In Luke Chapter 17 vs 13-16, ten lepers were healed but only one came back to offer thanks. Jesus asked for the remainder (nine). Although, they were healed but the first touch was surely not enough, they needed the second touch to perfect their healings. They will have to live with the stump and scars of leprosy for the rest of their lives.

 

In vs 17, “And Jesus answering said, were there not 10 cleansed? But where are the nine?”

 

Friend, acknowledge God with Thanksgiving, praise and worship. Thank Him for what He has done, praise Him for what He will do and worship Him for who He is. This is the surest way to secure a future for yourself.

 

Wait a minute, don’t forget that praise expands people, appreciation equals multiplication. Those who struggle more and get little results are those who have not added praise to their efforts.

 

“Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee. Then shall the earth yield her increase; and even God, and even our God shall bless us.”

 

“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.

 

If you are not praising God for the joy that you have today, you will be courting a curse on yourself – reversal of blessings – praise is a commandment and if you must enjoy the best of God obedience is essential.

 

And now; O ye priests, this commandment is for you. If ye will not hear; and if ye will not lay it to heart, to give glory unto my name, saith the lord of hosts, I will curse your blessings: yea I have cursed them already, because ye do not lay it to heart.” Mal.2:1-2

 

Let everything that hath breath praise the lord.“psalm. 150:6

 

I believe you are blessed by this post. I will love to read and response to  your feedback. Gracias (thanks).

 

 

The vital button to press


Praise is the vital button you need to press to operate in the supernatural

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.
