Deliverance by Fire Day 21: The Power of Praise in Deliverance

Today’s Reading

“Who is like unto thee, O Lord, among the gods? Who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders? – Exodus 15:11


Congratulations

It’s day 21 of our 21 days of deliverance by fire.

We give God all the praise.  Please continue to send in your praise report. We are reading and celebrating God for all the messages from across the world.

What next after this fast?

Watch out, we’ll let you know by next week. But for now…let’s proceed for today’s guide.

Please continue to follow the direction of this fast. As we continue to study the WORD of God, pray and wait on the LORD, His grace for victory and all-around restoration is released in our lives in Jesus Name.


Reflection

God is fearful in praises. He does wonders in praises.

David had endless triumphs and never lost a single battle even though he found himself in devastating situations. The secret was that he had a very close relationship with God and knew how to praise Him.

Through praise, you handover your battles to God because He inhabits in the praises of His people (Psalm 22:3).

Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand; to execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people;

To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron; to execute upon them the judgment written: this honor have all his saints. Praise ye the Lord. – Psalm 149:6-9

High praise, power praise, heartfelt appreciation will put a two-edged sword in your hand to execute vengeance upon the heathen. Every child of God has this honor. It’s time to use it.

Look at this:

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 endures forever.

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 kill another. – 2 Chron 20:21-23

Each time I read this story, something tickles in my spirit. How would Jehoshaphat, the king of small Judah, fight the army of three countries allied against him?

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.

So beloved, engage the foolishness and craziness of praise today. Declare this 21st day of your prayer retreat a day of radical praise to God. Come before Him with thanksgiving. Sing and dance before Him, play music and let your heart sing to His Holy name.

Don’t worry about remaining issues and prayer point. Praise God today.

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.”

Your enemies will join themselves to slaughter themselves, in Jesus name.

“Brother Dan,”you say, “are you sure this fasting and prayer declarations really did anything? I don’t have any feelings of supernatural yo-yo. Am I alright?”

Yes, you’re absolutely fine.

Don’t measure your prayers and God’s power at work in your life by how you feel. Even when you feel bad and lost, God heard your prayers and is doing great things in your life and family.

It’s time to move on to praise.

When you praise God, you build Him a habitation. When you praise God, you make Him a sanctuary and activate His dominion. When He is present in His power, the sea disappears; the mountains skip like rams and the little hills like lambs.

When God appears, darkness disappears. When He is present, the earth will tremble.

David was an addicted praiser. God took him from following the sheep to becoming the king of Israel.

After today, declare a season of praise to God. Spend the next month praising and dancing before Him every night. Your earth will undoubtedly yield her increase.

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

The earth in this passage symbolizes your womb, your mind, your business, your potentials, your family, your career, your children and everything that concerns you. It’s time to unleash the power of God for productivity in all areas of your life with the power of praise.
