Deliverance Through the Power of Praise

 And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed those who should sing to the Lord, and who should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army and were saying: “Praise the Lord, For His mercy endures forever.”  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. 2 Chronicles 20:21-22

Deliverance Through Power of Praise

Greetings Friends, I trust you are well and standing firm in your faith and passion for the Lord Jesus. 

This day, I want to talk about the power that comes through praising the Lord, especially in times of distress. I have observed in the word of God; how God’s people overcame battles and encountered great miracles through praising the Lord. I have also witnessed miracles in my life just by praising the Lord. 

From the second book of Chronicles, we learn from chapter 20, verses 21 to 22; how God defeated Israel’s enemies when they engaged in prayer and fasting accompanied by praise. This nation was facing one of the most extraordinary predicaments yet; a great multitude announced to king Jehoshaphat, that they intended to come against Israel’s nations in battle. 

We learn from the chapter that this news brought so much fear to the king and his people. What I love about this king, he understood where his help comes from, and he ran to God. His default setting in a crisis was to turn to God and seek His face, as we read in the passage of scripture below.

 And Jehoshaphat feared, set himself to seek the Lord, and proclaimed a fast throughout Judah. So Judah gathered together to ask help from the Lord, and from all the cities of Judah they came to seek the Lord. 2 Chron.20:3-4

As we study this chapter, God never told them to offer praise and worship. I perceive by knowledge, understanding of God; they broke out in praising the Lord. The king gathered the people and appointed those who should sing to the Lord, and who should praise the beauty of His holiness, as they went out before the army and were saying: “Praise the Lord, For His mercy endures forever.”

When they began singing and praising, God set an ambush upon their enemies, and they fought against each other. Israel’s nation did not even have to fight that great multitude; the power of God began to work to their advantage and brought great confusion amongst their enemies, and they started fighting amongst one another.

When we praise amid challenging times, we invite the power of God to work for us. Praise releases the power of God that moves mountains; things happen without you having to fight in the physical. Doors open on its own accord, chain breaks, and blockages are open through praise. 

 The kind of praise we offer to God determines the level of victory. Deep and powerful worship yield most extraordinary miracles, as we learned from this chapter. In conclusion, we also witnessed a great power of God at work in a prison in the books of Acts, chapter 16, verses 25 to 28. Apostle Paul and Silas had a terrible encounter with the magistrate of Macedonia. 

They had been beaten severely and thrown in jail without any form of medical help. In that difficult time, the Apostle Paul and Silas submitted themselves to praising and worshipping God. Their praise and worship moved the heart of God, that brought the power of God to the scene. While they were singing aloud and praying aloud, we learn that the prison’s doors open on its own accord, the chains fell off from them; the miracle did not happen to them only, but to each prisoner who was in that prison.

When we offer praise amid trials, it does not only set us free, but it brings deliverance to all that concerns us, to everyone around us. The power of God moves mightily without limits. 

May I encourage you this day to tap into this power of praise and witness deliverance that will not only set you free but will touch multitudes and nations at large! There is dunamis power that comes with fervently praising God. 

I hope you found an inspiration to continue to praise God without limits; May you encounter His greatness in unlimited power. Thank you for taking the time to read; I genuinely appreciate you, and many blessings.

    I always enjoy seeking out that which I consider the primary lesson of a particular blog. For me, the above wonderfully-phrased passage speaks volumes!

  2. Praise and thankfulness for God’s goodness is such a lost part of our daily lives it’s appalling. It’s mainly because we have fallen into such a carnal mindset of doing and earning for ourselves that the average believer forgets that God is spiritual and His delivering power is released through spiritual means. Praise and thankfulness are our physical means to express our thanks for all He does for us in the spiritual realm. The spiritual means we interact with God is outlined in 1 Cor 12: 8 – 10 which is misunderstood and disputed by most mainstream churches. You have to trust your own ability to interact with God without regard to anything that anybody else says. As long as God’s Word supports the manner that He communicates with you, you can be certain that you are right before God and He will always bless you with signs, miracles, and wonders to be thankful to Him about. This is how He gives us new reasons every single day to be praising Him in thanks. You can never outbold, or outgive God.

    Know that he will bring you through
    Ooh ooh baby
