The Power Of Praise

Apostle Grace Lubega

2 Chronicles 20:21-24(KJV); 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 forever. 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. 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. 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.

In our extensive weapon armoury as children of the Most High God, the Lord of Heaven’s armies and the Lord of Sabaoth, praise is a great weapon of choice.

King Jehoshaphat in our theme scripture employed it rather beautifully.

He was faced with a battle against a great multitude of the Moabites and Ammonites.

He could have chosen fear, despair or anger against God for allowing this to happen. However, he chose to praise God and see what happened!

When he chose to praise God, the battle was shifted into the capable hands of the Lord Himself.

The Bible reveals that real confusion befell the enemy camp; the Ammonites and Moabites turned against their allies, the inhabitants of Mount Seir. Having destroyed them, they turned against each other.

Imagine that!

Praise is the confirmation of your affirmed victory in God.

That is why when you come to praise, don’t spare, forget about your neighbour or the person that will weigh you on the scales of propriety, just praise!

If you are moved to dance, dance! If it is worship, forget everything else and worship the Most High God.

If you ever find yourself faced with the enemy’s advancing battle, don’t despair, simply put on your dancing shoes and praise God!

Glory to God!

FURTHER STUDY: 2 Samuel 6:14, Acts 16:25-26


Praise is the confirmation of your affirmed victory in God.

PRAYER: Loving father, I thank you for this wisdom in the art of war. Regardless of what I am going through, I choose to praise you through the storm. You, my God, inhabit the praises of your people; you my Lord break through prison doors when we choose to praise. With my heart lifted up, I praise and worship you. In this is my victory; in this is my breakthrough. To the glory of your name. Amen.
