The Lord spoke to my heart about how he wants all of his children to praise him more. If you really want to knock the devil for a loop just start praising the Lord.“And it came to pass, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel prevailed: and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed. But Moses’ hands were heavy; and they took a stone, and put it under him, and he sat thereon; and Aaron and Hur stayed up his hands, the one on the one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun. And Joshua discomfited Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword.” (Exodus 17:11-13). So if you have some battles you need to overcome and some victories that you want to gain, just start praising the Lord. “The Lord inhabits the praises of his people.”(Psalm 22:3). The Lord is there with you when you praise him. You can praise the Lord alone by yourself, and you can praise the Lord around others during prayer, and praise and worship time. Don’t let the enemy win by using your pride, and listening to the enemy (the devil and his demons) telling you “Oh, what will people think about me? If I started raising my arms and hands and praising the Lord.” The Lord really loves it when you praise him when your alone, and when you raise your arms and hands and praise him in front of others. It’s even a testimony and can help others to break through in the spirit, and find the freedom from all their cares and troubles by praising the Lord. Just don’t do it for a show to man. “ Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart;” (Ephesians 6:6 ). If you are not praising the Lord enough you are really missing out on a great blessing and freedom. So have a break through out of the chains that bind you, and start praising the Lord and speak in tongues. “I thank my God, I speak with tongues more than ye all:” (l Corinthians 14:18) “Lift up your hands in the sanctuary, and bless the LORD.” (Psalm 134:2 ). There is a great freedom and blessing awaiting you as you praise him and you will get so much closer to Jesus by praising him. I have been in prayer and praise meetings where it seemed that God’s Spirit was poured out upon us so much that it seemed like he took the whole room to Heavenly places unknown. Paul talked about being caught up to the third heaven (2 Corinthians 12:2). I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul shall make her boast in the LORD: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad. O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together. I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.” (Psalm 34:1-3 ). If you don’t feel like praising the Lord well then that’s the time you need to do it the most. Let God lift you up and out of it by Praising him. “Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 18:3). Please him by Praising him, that is what you were made for.There is going to be plenty of praising the Lord in Heaven. You might as well get used to it. Try it you might like it.
Say this prayer to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour.I believed you died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.
