Better than good greetings, in Jesus’ most colourful name!
We’re already in the second half of this month & I strongly believe that as you keep giving our heavenly Father all your praise, He’ll perfect everything that pertain to you, in Jesus’ most colourful name!
THE POWER OF PRAISE – 5
1. Praise provokes great harvests of the seeds & offerings you’re sowing – Zechariah 8.12(KJV):
“”For the seed shall be prosperous; the vine shall give her fruit, and the ground shall give her increase, and the heavensshall give their dew; and I will cause the remnant of this people to possess all these things“.
When you praise God, what you’re actually doing is watering the seeds you’re sowing in life – both for the advancement of God’s Kingdom on the earth, by your prayers & fasting, evangelising, soul winning & bringing people to church, involvement in church service units & other activities, & tithes & offerings; & also your education, career, business & ministry – Hebrews 13.15(KJV):
“By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name“.
If you breath on a mirror, you’ll discover that mist will cover the surface & when you wipe the mist away, the mirror becomes clearer, similarly, your life becomes better & shining when you give quality praise to our heavenly Father because then, He’ll make your spiritual & secular services to be both productive & profitable, by the dew of heaven & the increase ofthe earth!
”And it shall come to pass in that day, I will hear, saith the LORD, I will hear the heavens, and they shall hear the earth“;
 “And the earth shall hear the corn, and the wine, and the oil; and they shall hear Jezreel“.
The “corn,…wine,…oil” represent the better things that accompany salvation – Hebrews 6.9, & “…Jezreel” represents you & I(the believer) & our endeavours.
In effect, our heavenly Father is enlightening us to the fact that, as we take grace to serve & praise Him acceptably in Godly & reverential fear, He’ll make our lives to be better than good, on all sides! Hebrews 12.28.
”(To the chief Musician on Neginoth, A Psalm or Song.) God be merciful unto us, and bless us; and cause his face to shine upon us“; Selah.
Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee”.
”Then shall the earth yield her increase; and God, even our own God, shall bless us”.
”God shall bless us; and all the ends of the earth shall fear him”.
”Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it“.
”And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the LORD of hosts”.
The child of God must have the good understanding that whatever service he or she is rendering in God’s Kingdom is not to help God or the church but is for his or her favour & blessing!
2. Praise provokes healing & total health – Proverbs 17.22(KJV):
“A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones”.
Sickness is a spiritual matter though it manifests through different ways & so it must be handled spiritually with the Word of God!
The same day that Jesus took away our sins on the cross, He also took away our sicknesses & diseases – 1 Peter 2.24(KJV):
“Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed”.
“The spirit of a man will sustain his infirmity; but a wounded spirit who can bear”?
When the believer knows that sickness doesn’t come from God, he or she will be joyful & excited to confront the satanic hosts causing the harassment with the Word of God!
Whenever you notice sickness trying to disturb you, put a song of praise from your heart into your mouth, you may even be humming the song initially, you’ll soon discover that your mouth will open & voice will be given to the song, & not too long, you’ll discover that by faith, you’re making attempts to get off the bed!
“And the inhabitant shall not say, I am sick: the people that dwell therein shall be forgiven their iniquity”.
“Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruninghooks into spears: let the weak say, I am strong”.
As you sing praises to God & behave according to His Word that you’re not sick but strong & start doing what strong people do, you’ll soon notice that the sickness has gone back to where it came from!
No wonder, then, you’ll always read in the Gospel accounts of Jesus telling those who come to Him for healing & related matters to cheer up, that is, be joyful, be excited, your help has come, your healing, restoration has come!
Some years back, in the early ’90s, a woman was diagnosed with terminal cancer & she was given only six months to live.
Many leading servants of God have prayed for her but the cancer didn’t leave her, so she summoned courage & gathered & read books on divine healing…, today, she’s still alive!
Jesus paid the price for all the sufferings & troubles that Satan & his hosts have lined up against you but you must also know that you don’t pay for the same product twice in the same store.
Healing & total health are yours, take them from God’s Word & with joy & go, fulfilling your glorious, golden & royal destiny & purpose apace, with peace & ease, in a very grand style & colours!
Enjoy long life with the salvation, completeness of God’s blessings, in Jesus’ most colourful name!
JESUS IS LORD!
