Prayer: POWER IN PRAISE Praise is a way of giving honor and glory to God as your King of king, and Lord of lords. It is glorifying Him in his rightful position as Creator, Deliverer, Sustainer, and Protector. God inhabits the praises of His people. (Psalm 22:3) This is the safest place to be when the enemy wants to attack you. Praise will make the demons flee. Psalm 34:1 I will bless the Lord at all times, His praise Shall continually be in my mouth… O magnify the Lord with me And let us exalt His name together. When you are in danger, when you are troubled, begin to praise the Lord. Focus on his mighty power. Consider His glory and the angels who are surrounding you to protect you from danger. Exalt the name of God, call out the name of Jesus. There was a king of Judah who learned this lesson. He was filled with fear because of his enemies. The armies of three nations were large and could easily overpower the forces of Judah. The king cried out to God for help. The answer came: II Chronicles 20:15 Do not be afraid nor dismayed because of this great multitude, for the battle is not yours, but God’s. This king believed and trusted in God. He sent a whole chorus of singers and those who would praise the Lord, and had them march ahead of the army. The three armies began to fight one another instead of the forces of Judah, and they were all killed. The army of Judah never had to fight. What a lesson in the power of praise. God will defeat your enemies as you praise Him. Do you want to defeat the enemy? Do you want the protection from God to surround you? Do you want to be in the very presence of God: begin to sing praises to God, worship Him with your whole heart. It takes a brave person, and great faith to stand before the enemy. But God tells you as He told Joshua: Joshua 1:9 be strong and of good courage, do not be afraid nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. Joyfully, Joyce
