“Praise is God’s sunlight in the heart. It destroys sin germs. It ripens the fruits of the Spirit. It is the oil of gladness that lubricates life’s activities.” Smith Wigglesworth. Listen to this, “The Lord is my strength and shield. I trust Him with all my heart. He helps me and my heart is filled with joy. I burst out in songs of thanksgiving.” Psalm 28:7 (NLT). Scripture says, “When the clouds are full of water, it rains.” Read Ecclesiastes 11:3 (MSG). The question then is, how does the cloud get full? Watch this, your praise is what fills the cloud.
I read in my Bible where praise was used as a weapon or trigger to collapse a mighty fortress of a wall. Beloved, no matter how thick the defenses or fortified the city, shouts of praises to God can and will render human defenses powerless. And I add, no matter how bad the situation gets, praise will unlock and anchor you to the power source – God’s Word. Listen to this, sickness can’t withstand the power of praise; you will praise your way into health! Hallelujah, Glory to God. I said you will praise your way into peace and joy in the Holy Ghost. Hey, you will sing and dance your way into “joy unspeakable and full of glory.”
You are familiar with the story of the Jericho wall coming down. Joshua commanded the people, “Shout! For the Lord has given you the town! “…when the people heard the sound of the rams’ horns, they shouted as loud as they could. Suddenly, the walls of Jericho collapsed, and the Israelites charged straight into the town and captured it.” Read Joshua 6 (NIV). There is absolutely nothing praise can’t penetrate, because praise is a spiritual force. They worshipped without ceasing, day and night, singing, “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God, the Almighty! The Was, the Is, and the Coming!” Read Revelation 4:8b (TPT).
My Father, thank You. “Shout hallelujah and praise the greatness of God! All His godly lovers praise Him! All you worshipping priests on duty in the temple, praise Him, for He is beautiful!” Read Psalm 135:1-3 (TPT).
