We were created to praise and worship our creator. Praise turns our focus to God, which produces miracles. No matter what is going on or how you feel, praise is vital to get through any battle you may face.
Praise brings an increase.
Psalm 67:5-7 New King James Version says, 5 Let the peoples praise You, O God; Let all the peoples praise You.6 Then the earth shall yield her increase; God, our own God, shall bless us. 7 God shall bless us, and all the ends of the earth shall fear Him.
Praise lifts your spirit when your heart is heavy, and you feel sad/burden.
Psalm 61:3 King James Version says 3 To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified.
Praise sets you free from any chains or strongholds binding you.
Acts 16:25-26 Easy Read Version says 25 About midnight, Paul and Silas were praying and singing songs to God. The other prisoners were listening to them. 26 Suddenly, an earthquake so strong that it shook the foundation of the jail. All the doors of the prison opened, and the chains on all the prisoners fell off.
Praise wins battles.
Joshua 6:20 Easy read Version The battle of Jericho. 20 So then the priests blew the trumpets. When the people heard the trumpets, they began shouting. The walls fell, and the people ran up into the city. So, the Israelites defeated that city.
The answer is in your praise!
Prayer: Wonderful, righteous, loving, victorious are you, Lord. I exalt you because of who you are: the good shepherd, the light. The way, the truth, the light, the bread, the living water. And the great I am. God, I repent for exalting challenges over you. God, I hold on to your word. I always rejoice, pray without ceasing, and in everything, I give thanks. This is your will for me. I provide you with praise because it is already done! In Jesus’ name! Amen.
