PRAISE THE LORD
By Jemima Rayan
Every one can pray to God but not everyone can praise Him.
You need to have a relationship with God for you to praise
Him. You must have had an encounter with God to tell Him how
good He is. You must have had tasted Him to tell of the taste.
Our God is the mighty deliverer. He is the One who was, who
is and is to come. He is the Almighty God. There is nothing
too hard for the Lord. Your job is to continually praise Him.
Praise is so important when we fight the enemy. We need to
know how to praise God. Here are two simple steps that we can
First, we need to stop praising ourselves. In other words
we need to stop singing our own song. Some of us want to sing
our own songs all the time like our achievements, our spiritual
life, our status and so forth. These will not silence the enemy.
Our songs may be songs of despair and songs of pain in some
case. We may sing songs of regret and mistakes. Whatever be
the case, we need to stop that first.
The second thing that we must do is to ask God to give us
His song. His songs are songs of deliverance and songs of
healing. God wants to put a new song in your mouth. The following
scriptures talk about the new song. Ask the Lord for the
new song that the Bible talks about.
33:3 - Sing unto him a new
song; play skillfully with
a loud noise.
40:3 - And he hath put a new
song in my mouth, even
praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall
trust in the LORD.
96:1 - O sing unto the LORD a new
song: sing unto the
LORD, all the Earth.
98:1 - O sing unto the LORD a new
song; for he hath
done marvelous things: his right hand, and his holy arm, hath
gotten him the victory.
144:9 - I will sing a new
song unto thee, O God: upon
a psaltery and an instrument of ten strings will I sing praises
Psalms 149:1 - Praise ye the LORD. Sing unto the LORD a new
song, and his praise in the congregation of saints.
Only the song that God gives will give victory over sin, sickness
and satan. Ask the Lord to fill your mind and mouth with words
that are from heaven. When we sing the song we get from heaven,
the enemy will have no clue but to shut his mouth and flee
from us. Amen.
May the Lord help you praise Him all the days of your life.
