“I will worship you, Yahweh, with extended hands as my whole heart erupts with praise! I will tell everyone everywhere about your wonderful works! I will be glad and shout in triumph. I will sing praise to your exalted name, O Most High. For when you appear, I worship you while my enemies run in retreat. They stumble and perish before your presence.” Psalms 9:1-3 TPT
Never underestimate the importance of praise. It’s one of the most powerful spiritual weapons you have.
Praise is more than a pleasant song or a few uplifting words about God, it does something unimaginable. It releases the presence of God Himself, and when the presence of God comes on the scene, your enemies are turned back. Poverty can’t stay in your house. Diseases and sickness can’t stay in your body.
Even physical weariness has to flee when it’s faced with real joy-filled praise. Whenever the devil wants to stifle your effectiveness, to drain you of the strength, wealth and victory that is yours in Christ Jesus, turn him back with your powerful weapon of praise.
