This Will Take God

This will take God

When men got to their wits end you would heard them say, this will take God (what will take God will take praise). You’ve done all you could, now let God do what you couldn’t (what is impossible by men, is possible with God). With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible (Mathew.19:26).

Praise is what to do when you don’t know what to do. Praise is the spiritual medium through which you transfer your battle to God (when God take over, your battle is over). This battle is not yours, hold your peace and stand still. The children of Israel didn’t had to shoot an arrow before God stepped into their case (I can see God steeping into your case today).

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.Chro.20:22).

The night preceding the execution of Paul and Silas, they set up a platform of praise and a strange thing invaded the prison house; the foundation of the prison shook and their chain fell off (I can see every chain of darkness over your lives falling off this week in the mighty name of Jesus).

In the temple that Solomon built, as singers were singing and then suddenly, a cloud filled temple and the messenger could not preach. High praise will always provoke the release of God’s presence (A ‘Godful‘ atmosphere is a wonderful atmosphere).

Strange acts like the sick receiving their healings, the blind receiving their sights, the lame walking still happen in the middle of praise warfares.

We were all taught about prayer as a spiritual weapon but we were taught about praise as a subsidiary (praise is major in any major conflict).

In Nigeria where I live, a barren woman sang and danced in a church service; she danced herself to a set of twins. Exactly 9 months after the same month she danced the dance, she delivered double children.

Wait a minute, there was somebody who had a domestic fire accident but as he was singing and dancing in a typical praiseful service, there came an invincible guest who embraced him and all the scars of the accident was wiped clean.

Who is like unto thee O LORD, among the gods? Who is like unto thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders (Exodus.15:11).

Praise is where God lives. If you want to see God practically in action, get into praise.

God inhabits the praise of His people

Friend, loose yourself from the shackles of depression, shake your feet from the dust, put on the garment of praise and make the devil commits suicide.

As the Israelites were singing and celebrating the wall of Jericho had no choice than to come down flat and levelled up (I decree every barrier standing on your way to place of destiny will be levelled up in the name of Jesus).

When Pharaoh pursued the Israelites, he was perished in the red sea (The Pharaoh that won’t let you go will perish in the red sea).

Thou shall decree a thing and it shall he established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways (Job.22:28).

Words Of Prosperity

It is what you think that makes you rich

Your destiny has its root in your mind. Until your mind is renewed your life can’t be transformed. It’s not what you have that make you rich, it’s what you think. What you have begins with what you think.

This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and have good success (Joshua.1:8).

Wait a minute, first, it’s coming from your thoughts, then your mouth (because out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks) and then your acts. Your acts will be of no effects when your thoughts are contrary.

Take for instance, in the school of giving, you may be taking prosperity acts but thinking poverty thoughts. What you think and say are what determine who becomes of you. It’s breakthrough thoughts that make breakthrough, while it’s defeatist thoughts that make failure (you can’t think failure and arrive at success).


Operating In the Supernatural Part 2

When men get to their crossroads, they say, “this will take God.” What will take God will take praise. Praise warriors are spectators in their battles; praise warriors are those who watch God take over their battles and destroy their enemies. When God takes over, your battle is over.

Wait a minute: the Israelites didn’t have to shoot an arrow to defeat their enemies. You’ve done all that you know how to do. Now, it’s time to allow God to do what you cannot do. Hold your peace and standstill. This battle is not yours. Praise is what to do when you don’t know what to do (2. Chronicles.20:12/19/22).

“O our God, wilt thou not judge them? For we have no might against this great company that cometh against us; neither know we what to do: but our eyes are upon thee.” (vs.12)

“And the Levites, of the children of Kohathites, and of the children of the Korhites, stood up to praise the Lord God of Israel with a loud voice on high.” (vs.19)

“And when they began to sing and to praise, the Lord set ambushment against the children of Amon, Moab, and mount Seir, which were come against Judah, and they were smitten.” (vs.22)

What Are the Wonders of Praise That Makes It the Surest Way to The Supernatural?

  • Praise is where God lives. God inhabits the praise of His people (Psalm.22:3). If you want to seek God, pray; if you want to see God, praise Him. God sends angels to deliver answers to prayers while God comes down Himself to settle your case when you praise Him.
  • Wonders. A praiseful atmosphere is a ‘Godfull’ atmosphere; a ‘Godfull’ atmosphere is a wonderful atmosphere. “Who is like unto thee, O LORD, among the gods? Who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?” (Ex.15:11).

God still works wonders in praise. Somebody had a fire accident in Kaduna who came to a church where praise service was ongoing. The minister gave a charge on the power of praise and told the congregation praise with understanding. As they praised God, there came an invincible man who embraced the person who had the fire accident and healed all his scars.

God works wonders in mid-night praises. “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 was shaken (God moves can be rowdy but He speaks in a small still voice): and immediately all the doors were opened, and ever one’s bonds were loosed.” (Acts.16:25-26).

Praise the cheapest way to provoke the release of supernatural presence. It’s a divine presence that makes things happen (not you).

  • Supernatural Increase. Nothing is permitted to die in the hands of praise warriors; nothing is allowed to go down in the hands of praise warriors. You can’t praise God and be small.

“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)

Appreciation equals multiplication (supernatural multiplication is a function of appreciation). If you don’t appreciate you’ll depreciate. In John Chapter Six, Jesus needed to feed about 15000 uninvited guests (including children and women). He asked Philip, “where can we get bread that this may eat?” Of course, no way they could get bread at the mountainside. A lad with five loaves of bread and two fishes was the last resort. The bible says He knew what He would do (John.6:6). Jesus gave thanks for the little, the miraculous exploded. The reason many are few in life is ingratitude. It’s a pity that many Christians are anointed-complainers. If you don’t thank God for the little you have, you’re not qualified for the next thing. If you don’t thank God for that one-room apartment, that is where you may die.

God hates murmurers. Do all things without murmurings and disputing. (Phillipians.2:14)

Murmurers are programmed for destruction. Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, were destroyed of the destroyer. (1. Cor.10:10)

Hannah came to Shiloah, fretted. She was worried, she blamed God and her husband for her predicament, but that did not move God. When she placed a seal of vow on her request and changed her countenance, the miraculous exploded.

If you think that you so much worries will ever move God, that is another lie from the pit of hell. God is not moved by worry but faith. Appreciation during tribulation is a sign of strong faith.

  • Supernatural Ideas/Fresh Oil – I’ve seen many frustrated prayer warriors, but I’m yet to see a frustrated praise warrior. You can’t praise God and be stranded on ideas. Jesus always knew what He would do by being committed to a praiseful lifestyle. Anytime He confronted a seemingly impossible situation, He gave thanks, and the miraculous followed. Lazarus was dead for four days. They said he was dead, but He said he was sleeping (you can use your mouth to correct what is wrong). He gave thanks, and Lazarus jacked back to life, Hallelujah.

Fresh oil means fresh revelation. Sadly, stale oil is what most so-called born-again believers have today. If you don’t change the oil of your car engine, won’t it go stale? There must be a daily renewal of supernatural anointing over your life by buying into a praiseful lifestyle. A praise lifestyle opens heaven for the release of an avalanche of revelation. And without revelation, there is no manifestation.

In Psalm.92,

It is a good thing to give thanks unto the LORD, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most high (vs.1). But my horn shalt thou exalts like the horn of a unicorn: I shall be anointed with fresh oil (vs.10).

  •  Supernatural Victory – King David fought the most incessant battle in his time but lost none. The mystery behind his all-time victory was the power of praise. He experienced supernatural triumph throughout his reign.

Understand this: praise is a major spiritual weapon for warfare. The wall of Jericho came down flat at the shout of praise. Same way, every wall of limitation that engulfs your life will come down flat by the power of praise. We all know about prayer as a major, but praise is known as a minor. This is an erroneous conception. Praise is a major in any major conflict. 

Praise is not an occasional acknowledgement of good deeds; it’s the platform to transfer all your battles to God. When God takes over, your battle is over.

Final Thoughts

When men get to their wit ends, they say: “this will take God.” What will take God will take praise. Praise is what to do when you don’t what to do. What are in praise that makes it the surest pathway to the supernatural realm:

  • Praise is where God lives.
  • There are wonders in praise.
  • There are increases in praise.
  • There is access to supernatural ideas in praise.
  • There is supernatural victory in praise.

Friend, if you’ve read this post to this point, the last battle you lost is the last you’ll ever lose in Jesus name. Please, kindly follow, like, comment and share the good news with your networks on your social media outlets. Watch out for part three. You’re blessed.
