Praise & Worship
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Proverbs 16 – 17; 1 John 5; 2 John 2.
As believer, we are created to worship God, that is our primary purpose for living. Worship is the heart poured to God in gratitude. It is, expressing our appreciation of Who He is and what He has done for us by His grace through Jesus Christ.
Deborah was a true worshipper who understood the place of spiritual songs in her prophetic ministry. She understood spiritual things and how they operate. She knew how to bring the arm of God to bare in her prophetic ministry. She was a deep and true worshipper of God. She knew that the prophetic ministry cannot be divorced from the music ministry.
Elisha also understood this mystery so well, that he asked for a minstrel when he wanted to minister. But now bring me a minstrel. And it came to pass, when the minstrel played, that the hand of the LORD came upon him (1 Kings 3:15). Deborah and Barak sang unto the Lord and saw His hand upon their lives. She fought her battles from the place of worship. She gave honour unto whom it is due. So many Christians are yet to know the importance of worship in spiritual warfare. They seem to magnify their battles more than the God that can fight the battles in less than a second.
They forgot that cheap victory is won when you fight from the place of worship. When you worship God amidst trials, you are handling your battles to the One who alone does great wonders. This is the secret of Patriarch David. He worshipped God and God always showed up. He fought several battles yet he never died in battle. He died a natural death. The secret is WORSHIP. Beloved, let us learn to engage worship, high praise and thanksgiving in our daily prayer life. Prayers alone take your problems to God but worship combined with prayers bring God into the scenes of your problems and, of course, the results can never be the same.
It is also possible to pray amiss but you can never praise God amiss. There is a limit to which our human might can achieve in terms of spiritual warfare but when you hand over the battles to God whose might knows no bound through worship, you will be amazed about the results you will record in no time.
Do you know that you can discover and re-awaken your buried, dormant or sleeping talents through deep and intentional worship? Yes, you can! It happened to Elisha. Are you in the prophetic? You need to also leam the art of singing. It is a propellant. I pray that as we worship God in truth and in spirit, He will show up for us in a big way, in the name of Jesus.
1. Bring deep and intentional worship to God this morning.
2. Give a shout of praise right where you are.
3. Shout 7 glorious Hallelujah to the Lord.
4. O God my Father, revive my worship life, in the name of Jesus.
5. O God my Father, show up in my situations, in the name of Jesus.
6. I refuse to pray amiss, in the name of Jesus.
7. Give God another shout of praise, right there where you are.
