PRAISE CAN HANDLE THE ODDS
For the Lord is great, and greatly to be praised: he is to be feared above all gods (Psalms 96:4).
Obstacles are real but more real is the ability of God to put them where they belong. Praise is so powerful and effectual in subduing all obstacles of life. It will interest you to know that praise is much more effectual than the longest fast anyone can engage in. Your greatest obstacle in life will never require more than praise to become a miracle. If through the weapon of praise the wall of Jericho came down flat then through your praise every wall standing on your way to your high places must crumble for your sake. The problem of believers is not lack of solution but either ignorance or refusal to engage the force that will bring their solution their way. Praise is that force that no other force under heaven has the ability to resist. Prayer is good and potent but no matter how fervent it may be it cannot compete with the power of praise. If you want results in all you do then give God praise. If you want results cheaply, praise. If you want life to be sweet for you – you must make life sweet for God through praise. Praise is God’s delight.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT:
Whatever God can handle is what praise can handle.
Father, I know my circumstances are not bigger than You, as I praise You today, meet me at the point of my very need in Jesus name.
