Hope you are having an awesome weekend! Well, I’m in the mood for some praise and worship! Whoohooooo! The song I have today is the kind that will keep your head up by J.Moss! If you didn’t feel joy today, this song will uplift your spirit and make you dance!
When I think of David in the Bible and all the stuff he had to endure before he became King of Israel, he wrote so many psalms to God to keep His focus on who it was that gave Him Strength when he was weak; Who gave him joy in times of depression; Who gave him hope even in the most dismal situations he had encountered while Saul was seeking him out to destroy him. David had a lot of praise to give to the Lord despite all the things that he was going through and this is all evidenced in the book of psalms. The question I have for you today is: Do you give Praise to God everyday no matter what you are going through? I know that even in my present situation I have things that seem like it’s enough to throw in the towel, but I want to be strong like David and give God the highest praise regardless of my circumstances.
Praise is the most powerful weapon to assured victory in Jesus in whatever trial you face.
You can praise through your “prison-like situations” just like Paul and Silas did where the jail doors became open miraculously not only for their own freedom but for the freedom for ALL who were in bondage/captivity.
When you believe, your belief in Jesus can cause not only for you to receive deliverance for yourself, but it can cause others around you to experience the same level of deliverance for themselves as well.
This is the true Power of bondage breaking Faith.
Lately, the Lord has been impressing on my heart to pursue “Bondage Breaking Faith”.
This type of faith is only found in what you do in your PRAISE AND WORSHIP.
The Philippian Jailer Saved
25 But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them. 26 Suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone’s chains were loosed. 27 And the keeper of the prison, awaking from sleep and seeing the prison doors open, supposing the prisoners had fled, drew his sword and was about to kill himself. 28 But Paul called with a loud voice, saying, “Do yourself no harm, for we are all here.”
29 Then he called for a light, ran in, and fell down trembling before Paul and Silas. 30 And he brought them out and said, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?”
31 So they said, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household.” 32 Then they spoke the word of the Lord to him and to all who were in his house. 33 And he took them the same hour of the night and washed their stripes. And immediately he and all his family were baptized. 34 Now when he had brought them into his house, he set food before them; and he rejoiced, having believed in God with all his household.
The one thing that keeps us from breakthroughs in life is what we do with our worship. When you stop praising (living a life filled with gratitude unto God) and when you stop worshiping (believing in the one true God, Jesus Christ, and the workings of the Holy Spirit), you set yourself up in a type of prison that locks up your potentials, it locks up all your promises, it locks up even your victories in a type of prison that cannot be shaken unless you decide to open up your mouth and give the Lord Praise and Worship due unto His name.
Paul and Silas got it. It doesn’t matter what circumstances you are facing right now. Don’t let anybody or anything steal your worship unto God. The true KEY to freedom through whatever trial or issue you face is in your Praise and Worship to God.
You’ve got to be like David who ran after God’s heart through worship. You’ve got to be like Paul and Silas who knew that not even prison bars could stop them from speaking, praising and worshiping the true King of kings. When the King of kings hears this language of faith, He is the one that opens every door for you that no man can shut:
Revelations 3:7-8 (NIV)
The Faithful Church
7 “And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write,
‘These things says He who is holy, He who is true, “He who has the key of David, He who opens and no one shuts, and shuts and no one opens”:[c] 8 “I know your works. See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it;[d] for you have a little strength, have kept My word, and have not denied My name.
Can we truly fathom the awesomeness of this high level of faith? I can tell you one thing, the Church of Jesus Christ needs to reach this level. We are still in the milk stages of faith...it’s time to pick up our sling shots of faith like David, it’s time stand up in faith like Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, it’s time to stand our ground and not be moved until everything that was stolen from us is returned like Moses who stood in the gap for the children of Israel against Pharaoh. “LET MY CHILDREN GO!”. Don’t buckle, don’t give in, and keep on praising until you see the Lord’s desired promise for your life come to pass. You don’t have to accept the world’s opinion of your Faith. You must concern yourself with God’s opinion regarding your Faith in Him. Remember, He is a REWARDER of those who diligently seek Him.
But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
Success is built on what and whom you worship by faith. The question is, are we worshiping the right things?
You are a servant to what you worship. I choose to serve my God…and I’d rather be a servant to Him than any other thing in this world because He is where all my hope comes from.
Today, revive your bondage breaking faith in Jesus through your praise and worship unto Him. It is the most powerful weapon to assured victory in whatever trial you face.
PRAISE AND WORSHIP IS THE LANGUAGE OF FAITH. Put this heavenly language in your heart, and begin to see amazing things happen. I strongly believe in this…the question is do you believe?
Enjoy this Song Everybody and God bless!!!!
