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.

Virtues of praise


What are the virtues of praise?

(a) There is presence of God in praise – You don’t make things happen in life. It’s God’s presence that make them come to be. A praiseful atmosphere is a ‘Godful’ atmosphere; a ‘Godful’ atmosphere is a wonderful atmosphere.

It takes the presence of God to break out of the prison door of your life.

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.”

Somebody is walking out of the prison door.

As you put on the garment of praise today and dance before the king, this week strange things will happen.

What your efforts can’t earned you in 100years to come, God will give you within forty eight hours. Within 3days a cup bearer became a governor.

(b). There is increase in praise – Get this straight: Multiplication is a function of appreciation.

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.”

The reason many are few in life is because they keep a heart filled with grumblings and complains. Murmurings will further mess up your situation while complains will complicate your matters.

Many – though born-again Christians- have turned themselves into prayer projects; they got bitter with God and magnified their problems out of proportion.

Most things called prayers are murmurings. If you can turn all bitterness into praise you will be manifesting the miraculous on every side.

If you say you have no shoes; have you ever met a man with no legs before? If you don’t thank God for that one room apartment that is where you will die.

If you say you have no job; what if your case were mental case will you be able to go to school? The fact that you are a potential candidate for employment requires praise.

This is the reason many are few in life.

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.”

To be continued…
