Let me encourage you today with these thoughts, whatever you need God to do for you right now, this very moment, wherever you are, whoever you're with, forget about everything and take a moment to Praise the Lord. I already know only a few will actually do this, many will be too embarrassed, to shy, to proud or too busy, but I assure you, God's Word will not return void and if you will do this right now, a miracle will come.
The Psalmist said "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."
Praise God, Hallelujah, Glory to God! That's the most powerful declaration you will every hear! If God's people will praise Him, breakthrough and blessing will be yours. If you withhold your praise, you will forfeit what God has promised. Increase will come to those who will Praise their God, who are not ashamed to just stop everything in their life and Praise Him.
The reason a person does not see victory is because they have yet to break through in their praise! I watch it all the time, no excitement, not joy, no enthusiasm, no real demonstration on the outside of the transformation on the inside. Sometimes we say "Let what's in you come out" only to realize, maybe it's not in them.
I challenge you today, break free from yourself, if you will, it will feel like ten tons of shackles have fallen off your hands and feet and you are finally free to Praise God and in turn, see the earth yield her increase in your life and God Bless You!
Paul and Silas decided to Praise God at midnight and as they did, the prison doors opened, the shackles fell off and they were free! That same freedom will come to you today, right now, this very moment if you will take a moment to Praise Your God!
