II Chronicles 20:22 NKJV “Now when they began to sing and to praise, the Lord set ambushes against the people of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir, who had come against Judah; and they were defeated.”
In the kingdom of God, praise is a hotline. You know, hotlines are setup for emergencies and for communication between heads of government. Whenever you want God to act swiftly, praise Him!
Praise is not only done through singing as we think, it can be spoken as well. You praise God when you ascribe power, glory and honour to Him; when you speak of His might; when you appreciate His works; when you testify of His wonders; and when you call Him His names and say who and what He is as revealed especially in His word.
This song is a great one: “What shall we do today? Today o, I will lift up my voice to praise; for I know, You are always there for me, Almighty God, You are my all in all, no matter what I face, when trouble comes my way I will praise the Lord!” Timid people changed the lyrics to “when success comes my way.” But the man who praises is not afraid of trouble; because he knows that as king, as soon as he begins to praise, he connects with the King of Kings, and that there will be a speedy divine intervention! Hallelujah!
To do: Praise the Lord!
