Praises to God tells satan we have put him on notice. We have come out of our shell to praise the Living Son of God with pure love and true faith in Jesus alone. Talk about how this will defy our enemy every time, for he has to flee away from our praise to God. Our praise can be done in different forms, but we must allow our spirit to praise God throughout the day. Even at night while we are sleeping, we are still very much aware of praising God in our sleep. Just speaking praise to Jesus brings comfort and peace to our hearts which can be heavy with sorrow, or pain, or grief. Too much distractions by our enemy brings us into a captive state of despair. Instead of being distracted by what our enemy plans, we should be walking in the Holy Spirit of God, listening to what Jesus is planning for us. Instead of allowing our enemy to come in by force, we should be forcing our enemy out by shinning great light into our minds and hearts with the Word of God.
True praises to God will cause us to be uplifted in our hearts, help us to sing songs and bring healing into our bodies with His love. Jesus loves to hear his children praise him, as well as give him glory for all that he is doing to bring us into the next level with him. Wisdom grows in us when we spend time in Jesus’s presence allowing him to teach us about his Father’s will. Desire to please Jesus grows stronger every time we become filled with more of His Holy Spirit. Teaching us of His perfect will allows us to see his heart of purity letting us grow in stronger faith, peace and joy of His presence all around us.
Our enemy satan cannot stand in the praise of God, nor can he even listen to the wonderful songs of love for our Savior, Jesus Christ. This is too hard for him because he knows Jesus is love, he also knows that we can be set free through our praises to God from his bondage of sins. Growing up in the Spirit of God takes us to levels unseen in Him, revealed only by Jesus as we learn from his Holy Spirit of truth and grace. Trust comes daily as we grow in stronger faith each second of our day. We cannot learn from any other source what God has to teach us, for it is a personal walk in His Spirit each day where we learn about Him. God has many things to teach us about how to praise his Holy name, if we will hear and obey His voice. Listening to the voice of God will bring us into a deeper level of praising Him.
Read the Holy Word, see the promises which were made to deliver those out of bondage, feel the power of God working in your heart as you read about Him. Then before long songs will pour into your heart and mind, you will begin to praise God throughout the day and night, you will see a personal God instead of one who is far away. God is very personal to me, I love him in so many ways, yet there isn’t enough praise to give him from my heart to let those around me know just how much I love Him. Only true worshiper’s of God know whom they worship in Spirit and truth, for it is His Spirit which brings us songs of praise and love. The book of Psalm is all about prayer and worship of God, it will teach us how to pray, sing, laugh, cry in the Holy Spirit of God. The book of John in the Bible teaches us of God’s love by giving us his Son Jesus to die for our sins. Every book in the Bible has different levels of Spiritual meanings, yet everyone of them will bring us into a closer relationship with God’s Holiness.
Praise is our number one sword to set our enemy on notice that he no longer controls us through lies and deception. Just saying praise out loud to Jesus brings him ever closer to us, causing our enemy to flee. Praise comes from the deepest part of our hearts filling us with joy of the Holy Spirit of God as we sing praises to him. Praise set us free from heartache, sorrows, pain, even delivers us from the snares satan tries to set for us. Jesus comes to us in time of our troubles to set us free. If for some reason we may be filling low, just down and out because of how our day has started, start praising God and watch everything smooth out. What started as a bad day, becomes filled with love and beauty of God as he surrounds us in his presence, as we praise him for his goodness.
How can we feel down and out while we lift praises up to God who fills us with peace and joy?
Isaiah 44:23 Sing, O ye heavens; for the LORD hath done it: shout, ye lower parts of the earth: break forth into singing, ye mountains, O forest, and every tree therein: for the LORD hath redeemed Jacob, and glorified himself in Israel.
Isaiah 49:13 Sing, O heavens; and be joyful, O earth; and break forth into singing, O mountains: for the LORD hath comforted his people, and will have mercy upon his afflicted.
Psalm 9:11 Sing praises to the LORD, which dwelleth in Zion: declare among the people his doings.
We as true believers in Jesus know him on a very personal level, for in his love we learn all about His Holiness, His joy, His peace, nothing else matters to those who are full committed unto God. How can we praise God unless we first truly know Him? How can we learn of God unless we allow Him to teach us? God said we would have no need for any man to teach us for He would write his law upon our hearts. God knows us from the day we were ever formed in our mothers womb, He brought us forth to praise Him and worship Him in his Spirit of truth. The whole duty of man is to fear God and love him.
Jeremiah 33:11 The voice of joy, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride, the voice of them that shall say, Praise the LORD of hosts: for the LORD is good; for his mercy endureth for ever: and of them that shall bring the sacrifice of praise into the house of the LORD. For I will cause to return the captivity of the land, as at the first, saith the LORD.
Only those who truly want God, desires His Word, walks close in his embrace will praise God with a pure heart. Prayer brings us closer to hearing every word of God as we learn to listen to Him. Joy brings deeper love into our hearts as we join in praising God with his angels, who continue in constant praise worshiping God. Praise sets our enemy on notice we are a saved born again Christian, who will no longer be deceived by his tricks.
When things begin to look bad, just start praising God for all of His goodness, praise will change the atmosphere around us to charge it with the Glory of God around us. Hold fast unto the faith God has given to us, lift up our voices to ring praise throughout the heavens and give God all the glory due to his name.
Have a wonderful day in praising the Lord.
