Overcoming Truth – God is Glorious!!
Praising God is the most powerful weapon we have in this spiritual war that we are in. I bet some of you who are in bondage to lies, anger, depression, drugs.. anything not holy would feel a repulsion to just reading this right now? Do you notice that? Maybe a distraction or a doubtful thought or even a feeling or anger?
Why? Because SATAN simply will not linger where there is praise.. he won’t, he hates it and if you are able to press in to praising God’s name, a few things happen as brother Richard’s message i posted mentions and that is that God’s glory comes upon us! His word says that he inhabits the praises of his people.. our praises are like fragrant incense to him he loves LOVES the praises of his creation… and what are these praises I’m speaking of… well let demonstrate:
God you are amazing! Every thing you have done is so brilliant! You are so beautiful, your love is so perfect and tender..your mercies father God I am so grateful for your forgiveness, even though I did “this thing _” you have forgiven me. You are so gentle, you are so powerful…..
Basically you dote on him and in your heart you recognize his lordship, that HE is supreme.. not you.. that without his mercy we’d be in trouble.. with thanks giving…
When we do this his glory comes down and satan leaves, depression lifts, doubt leaves, agitation leaves.. hopelesssness is lost.. sorrow and loneliness and fear they jump ship…
And we are filled with joy and our faith sores and our burdens and cares leave and then we are in the very presence of the one who can, and WILL do anything we ask in his name..
And we are then able to lay our burdens at his feet
. We then surrender..
Because his word.. his Overcoming truth is that- the JOY of the lord is our strength..
Nehemiah 8:10 New International Version (NIV)
10 Nehemiah said, “Go and enjoy choice food and sweet drinks, and send some to those who have nothing prepared. This day is holy to our Lord. Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”
We fight this battle on our knees🎶
