Praise Week:  Praise Your Way to Victory

Memory Verse

“Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee.

Then shall the earth yield her increase; and God, even our own God, shall bless us.” – Psalm 67:5-6

God has been speaking to us about harvest since the last couple of days. I believe that this is our season of harvest. As you know, the Word says that “While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease” – Genesis 8:22.

The Holy Spirit has given us a Word that harvest is ready. So be encouraged. The LORD will cause all your prayer seeds, love seeds, money seeds, and support seeds in the past to answer for you this season.

I want you to know that you’ve not labored in vain. You’ve not prayed and served in vain. You’ve not worshipped in vain.

God is Love. He is taking account of all your prayers, seeds and situations. He is working from behind the scenes and you’ll certainly see it this season.

“And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.”  – Galatians 6:9

Start Praising God from Your Heart Henceforth

Yes, I’m not saying that everything has become rosy or that all your prayers have been answered. I’m saying that it’s time to take your eyes away from what’s not done, see what’s ahead and praise God from your heart.

Praise is the completeness of prayer

Praise will change your life. It will connect you to the supernatural and provoke divine manifestations.

So this week, I want you to pray for nothing, but praise for everything. Spend all your prayer times praising God. Take an account of all He has done for you in the past and praise Him for them

Write out all the issues that are nagging in your life right now, but instead of worrying and praying, start praising.

Turn Praise into a Weapon of Warfare

And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed singers unto the Lord, and that should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army, and to say, Praise the Lord; for his mercy endureth for ever.

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.

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. – 2 Chron 20:21-23

Each time I read this story, something tickles in my spirit.

A few Sundays ago in church, the LORD said to me, “Tell my people, as they praise me from their hearts, I raise them from their dust.”

When you are overwhelmed by your battles, turn to praise.

How would Jehoshaphat, the king of small Judah, fight the army of three countries allied against him?

Analysts gave them away. I believe that his very close friends must have asked him to just call and surrender.  But he sought God for direction and God said, “Ye shall not need to fight in this battle: set yourselves, stand ye still, and see the salvation of the Lord with you, O Judah and Jerusalem: fear not, nor be dismayed; tomorrow go out against them: for the Lord will be with you” (2 Chronicles 20:17).

Jehoshaphat was instructed to go to this battle with instruments and songs.

Now, how do you explain that to modern army generals? I mean, there you have three nations coming in combat against you, well equipped. And instead of you either calling to negotiate a soft landing, or reaching out to other countries to form your allies, you go to the battle without bows, arrows, and guns, but with instruments, singing praises and shouting Hallelujah?

That’s the highest level of craziness!

But you see, God uses the unwise things of this world to confound the wise.

“Continual heartfelt praise may look insignificant in the midst of so many issues and battles confronting you at the moment, but that is the weapon that confounds your enemy and gives you the victory you deserve.”

When the army of Jehoshaphat “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. 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.”

O clap your hands, all ye people; shout unto God with the voice of triumph.

For the Lord most high is terrible; he is a great King over all the earth.

He shall subdue the people under us, and the nations under our feet.

He shall choose our inheritance for us, the excellency of Jacob whom he loved.

God is gone up with a shout, the Lord with the sound of a trumpet.

Sing praises to God, sing praises: sing praises unto our King, sing praises.

For God is the King of all the earth: sing ye praises with understanding  – Psalm 47:1-7

Beloved, God says I should tell you to turn to praise. Stop crying and trying. Start praising and dancing. Take your mind away from the magnitude of your situation. Start worshipping from your heart. Go ahead and don’t stop. Your victory is here.
