Topic: The Blessing of Praise [Monday October 2, 2017]
Scripture: Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee. 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 67:5-7.
Thought For The Day: The pathway of praise is the highway of the blessing of God.
Yesterday, we looked at the products of a blessed life or nation. The blessing of God is indeed needed to make impact in life.
Today, we want to establish a fact that one of the easiest ways to access the blessing of God is to exist as a person of praise. The pathway of praise is the highway of the blessing of God. To follow the way of praise is to be greeted with the blessing of God. Those who understand the language of praise, never struggle to be blessed.
Praise positions the praiser in God’s Presence and to be in God’s Presence is to attract Divine Blessings.
Now, let us take a look at two categories of blessing a praiser experiences when he/she is positioned in God’s Presence by praise:
1. Rest: The Presence of God is the secret of rest. That is, a praiser experiences deliverance from stress and anxiety.
2. Pleasure and Prosperity: The Presence of God is the secret of pleasure and pleasure is the twin of prosperity. The Presence of God brings Divine pleasure along with Divine prosperity.
Beloved, my counsel is, refuse to live a life of praiselessness. This is because, anytime the devil wants to fight your blessings, he causes you to murmur and find faults with God.
Praise God in the beauty of holiness (2 Chronicles 20:21), not in iniquity. Whatever is contrary to the Will and Word of God destroys your praise.
Remember This: The pathway of praise is the highway of the blessing of God.
1. Engage in midnight praise as frequently as possible.
2. Praise God for what He is yet to do in your life.
Prayer: O LORD, I praise You for all You have done for me. I will praise You all the days of my life, Lord in Jesus’ Name.
Quote: Every time you are given to worship, Jesus Himself is the One that will fight your battles for you’ culled from ‘ALABASTER BOX’ by Dr (Mrs) Becky Paul-Enenche
