TOPIC: The Wonders of Praise

FIRE SCRIPTURE: 2 Chronicles 20: 20-30 
20 And they rose early in the morning, and went forth into the wilderness of Tekoa: and as they went forth, Jehoshaphat stood and said, Hear me, O Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem; Believe in the Lord your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper.

21 And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed singers unto the Lord, and that should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army, and to say, Praise the Lord; for his mercy endureth for ever.

22 And when they began to sing and to praise, the Lord set ambushments against the children of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, which were come against Judah; and they were smitten.

23 For the children of Ammon and Moab stood up against the inhabitants of mount Seir, utterly to slay and destroy them: and when they had made an end of the inhabitants of Seir, every one helped to destroy another.

24 And when Judah came toward the watch tower in the wilderness, they looked unto the multitude, and, behold, they were dead bodies fallen to the earth, and none escaped.

25 And when Jehoshaphat and his people came to take away the spoil of them, they found among them in abundance both riches with the dead bodies, and precious jewels, which they stripped off for themselves, more than they could carry away: and they were three days in gathering of the spoil, it was so much.

26 And on the fourth day they assembled themselves in the valley of Berachah; for there they blessed the Lord: therefore the name of the same place was called, The valley of Berachah, unto this day.

27 Then they returned, every man of Judah and Jerusalem, and Jehoshaphat in the forefront of them, to go again to Jerusalem with joy; for the Lord had made them to rejoice over their enemies.

28 And they came to Jerusalem with psalteries and harps and trumpets unto the house of the Lord.

29 And the fear of God was on all the kingdoms of those countries, when they had heard that the Lord fought against the enemies of Israel.

30 So the realm of Jehoshaphat was quiet: for his God gave him rest round about.

But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.

Psalm 22:3

MFM Daily Devotional 26 November 2023 MESSAGE

The power and wonders of praise are highly under-utilised today. Believers need to avail themselves of the blessings attached to praising God as a lifestyle.

Exodus 15:11 says, “Who is like unto thee, O LORD, among the gods? Who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?” This scripture reminds us that when we praise God in righteousness, He manifests his fearful acts of terror and wonder. The Bible says that God inhabits our praises and that is all He gets from us. All we can give to God is our praise; no man must share that with Him. From the Bible study and the memory verse of today, we saw the fearful acts of God when His people praised Him. The power of praise to the Most High cannot be over-emphasized. When you have prayed and fasted and there is no result, just praise God. God will come into the situation and fight for you when you praise Him.

READ MFM Daily Devotional 25 November 2023 – Say No to Ingratitude

I know of a young girl who joined this ministry in 2009. She had a lot of problems and battles and she did not know the source. After counseling, she embarked on 21 days praise. She prayed no prayer apart from praise and thanksgiving. She did that for two hours every day, one hour in the morning and one hour at night. Beloved, on the first day, she had a very deep revelation that exposed the source of her battles. It took praises to show her the deep secret!

Whenever you are faced with a problem bigger than you, allow God to handle it. Jehoshaphat had no power to fight the nations that were coming against him. He took it to God and commanded Judah to fast unto the Lord, and a prophecy came forth that killed their fear. They only had to thank God and praise Him and they found all their enemies dead when they got to the battlefield. God will honour your praise as you lift up your voice to Him today. Praise works wonders!
