People who have learned to offer praise from the depth of their heart, will never suffer defeat. Satan is totally unable to handle you when you learn to walk in that realm of perfected praise. And that is why he tries his hardest to mess up your praise. He knows that when you live in the praise realm he cannot touch you, because the praise realm is the realm of God!! It is the realm where “all things are possible to him that believes” (Mark 9:23). Please understand that when you begin to praise from the heart, you look away from what you think you don’t have, to the One you have!!
We must allow the Holy Spirit to blind our eyes to what is happening, and open them to what God is doing. Then all the things that are not happening begin to happen. This is how God does things. You begin to understand that as you praise Him you are being lifted up above the obstacles; now you are watching God step in and your battle is over, always in your favor.
Praise is a mighty weapon in spiritual warfare. Although it seems easy to offer, it is indeed a mighty weapon, because it brings God Almighty on the scene, and when He arrives nothing can come against you, because every devil flees. You do not have a problem; rather it is the lack of God’s presence in your life that makes you suffer. When you stop praising, problems appear to magnify themselves, and you become an easy target for the devil.
God is light, and every problem exists in the realm of darkness. Begin to carry the light of God’s presence, and darkness will flee. Praise from the heart will bring the glorious light of His presence.
Psalm 100:4 “Enter into His gates with thanksgiving and into His courts with praise. Be thankful unto Him, and bless His Name”. Always enter His presence with singing and His gates with thanksgiving! Never complain and murmur. Always be thankful, no matter what. This is the only way that you will be able to carry His presence all day long. When you are thankful, you become God-full; when you are God-full, every obstacle, every problem, every devil becomes subject to your authority.
The enemy will do anything to stop praise from flowing from your lips, because every time you praise God, you transfer the battle over to Him. David’s secret weapon that kept him from ever suffering injuries, although he fought many battles, was the weapon of praise. Praise paralyzes satan. Not any praise, but one that flows from within.
It is time to wake up, and begin to enjoy the virtues of our redemption. Praise is a weapon of war that honors God and dignifies His people.
Begin now; offer Him your praise from the depths of your heart and watch the supernatural unfold in your life.
