Scriptures: Psalm 149:1-9
Do you need a breakthrough in your life? A breakthrough in your circumstances? Your experiences? Or in your expression of worship? You can secure your breakthrough: its time to break the silence, because there is power in praise! Praise has to do with articulation and demonstration. Through praise the breakthrough comes!
1) Praise secures God's presence- "God dwells in the praises of His people." God's presence is linked with His people's praise.
2) Praise secures an unburdening- Isaiah 61:3 says that "the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness." There are people who are living with the spirit of heaviness: carrying a burden and a disposition of heaviness. Its time to exchange that heaviness for praise: securing an unburdening by changing your garment.
3) Praise secures your victory- The Bible says "resist the devil and He will flee from you." The devil attacks with discouragment, negativity, hopelessness and despair. So how do we resist the devil? Start praising the Lord: Get your mind on His greatness, sing of His love, shout of His faithfulness and praise His name in the dance. This will make the enemy flee!
Many of us need a breakthrough and to secure it we must praise through whatever it is! Many times we hit roadblocks on our own we are stalled and waiting for someone or something to remove our obstacles. If you are tired of waiting then its time to breakthrough! Yours praise invites God's power, will lift heaviness and brings the victory!
