Praise is Powerful

But You are holy, O
You Who dwell in the holy place where the praises of Israel are offered
(Psalm 22:3
– Amplified).
  
Believers have several weapons at their disposal as they
fight the good fight of faith. They have the Word of God, the name of Jesus,
the blood of Jesus, and praise and worship!
 
The Father watches over His Word to make it good as the sword of the Spirit comes out of our
mouth from our hearts in faith (Jeremiah 1:12). Demonic forces tremble when the
command of faith is given in the Name of
Jesus
(Philippians 2: 9-11)! And we overcome Satan forces by the blood of the lamb and the word of our
testimony
(Revelation 12:11).
 
But of all the weapons in our arsenal, perhaps praise is the
strongest. When praise is offered, God Almighty shows up in the atmosphere! The
weightiness of God, the power of who He is, manifests when praise is uttered.
The power of God’s kingdom is aroused when our praise and worship are
expressed.
  
In Acts 16, Paul and Silas were praising and worship so
loudly that the other prisoners heard them as they were held in chains in the
dark prison. Instead of the atmosphere of the prison invading them, they
decided to invade that atmosphere of darkness with the presence of God! And
their chains fell off, the prison doors were opened, and they were set free!
God responded to their praise, shaking the ground under their feet, and shaking
the unbelief around them that threatened their lives!
  
During battle, the Israelites were instructed to put Judah
(praise) in the forefront of the combat They would sing, for the Lord is good, and His mercy endures forever!  Israel’s
enemies would be defeated time after time by an unseen host of angels as Israel fought
with the weapons of a new type of spiritual
warfare, praise and worship!
 
God has not changed. He still responds to praise by pouring
out the weightiness of His presence, causing unseen enemies to flee. Don’t
cower down to circumstances today. Pull out that weapon of praise, and allow
the Lord to fight your battles. The battle is the Lord’s. The victory is ours
to enjoy!
