Every one can pray to God but not everyone can praise Him. You need to have a relationship with God for you to praise Him. You must have had an encounter with God to tell Him how good He is. You must have had tasted Him to tell of the taste.
Our God is the mighty deliverer. He is the One who was, who is and is to come. He is the Almighty God. There is nothing too hard for the Lord. Your job is to continually praise Him.
Praise is so important when we fight the enemy. We need to know how to praise God. Here are two simple steps that we can look into.
First, we need to stop praising ourselves. In other words we need to stop singing our own song. Some of us want to sing our own songs all the time like our achievements, our spiritual life, our status and so forth. These will not silence the enemy. Our songs may be songs of despair and songs of pain in some case. We may sing songs of regret and mistakes. Whatever be the case, we need to stop that first.
The second thing that we must do is to ask God to give us His song. His songs are songs of deliverance and songs of healing. God wants to put a new song in your mouth. The following scriptures talk about the new song. Ask the Lord for the new song that the Bible talks about.
Psalms 33:3 – Sing unto him a new song; play skillfully with a loud noise.
Psalms 40:3 – And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.
Psalms 96:1 – O sing unto the LORD a new song: sing unto the LORD, all the Earth.
Psalms 98:1 – O sing unto the LORD a new song; for he hath done marvelous things: his right hand, and his holy arm, hath gotten him the victory.
Psalms 144:9 – I will sing a new song unto thee, O God: upon a psaltery and an instrument of ten strings will I sing praises unto thee.
Psalms 149:1 – Praise ye the LORD. Sing unto the LORD a new song, and his praise in the congregation of saints.
Only the song that God gives will give victory over sin, sickness and satan. Ask the Lord to fill your mind and mouth with words that are from heaven. When we sing the song we get from heaven, the enemy will have no clue but to shut his mouth and flee from us. Amen.
May the Lord help you praise Him all the days of your life. Amen.
