If you’ve watched the displays of a drunken person, you’ll understand when I say there is what’s called praise tonic. The alcohol inflames him to the point he can only think of things that cross his mind and acts likewise.
As a Christian, you have every right to get intoxicated with the spirit of praise. Have you got it? I tell of a man who got overjoyed when the presence of God finally “came into the city of David,” after long absence. Every attempt to get the ark proved futile. But it came finally. “And David danced before the LORD with all his might; and David was girded with a linen ephod. So David and all the house of Israel brought up the ark of the LORD with shouting, and with the sound of the trumpet… king David leaping and dancing before the LORD” exhibited his intoxication with praise (2 Samuel 6:14-16).
He got drunk with praise. So what is the use? He became the man after God’s own heart. That is an everlasting testimony. That’s the power of praise. When you praise God you give an organic command to heaven’s hosts. That is when God shows up valiantly on your behalf than ever. Prayer is good but praises it the express way into God’s heart in the spirit of holiness.
You can jump into the ocean of praise and see the power of God. Multitudes praise God everyday out of a pure heart fervently. Joining and jubilating won’t be a time waste.
Paul and Silas is classic to the power of praise. Amid gross darkness, they mocked their predicaments. That blows minds, right? They didn’t complain. You know why? Because complaints is the sharp knife that truncates our blessings when it’s dropping from heaven. Compliant does no good. It sabotages, defrauds and weakens faith. Void it as a plague and pull the praise cloth over.
Will you rise now and rejoice in the Lord over your problem before you drop this article? Rise to mock Satan. Tease him to the core. Glory to God!
