TOPIC: PRAISE GOD! VICTORY AT LAST
Scripture :Psalm 150: 4. Praise him with the timbrel and dance: praise him with stringed instruments and organs. 6. Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD.
Beloved, I welcome you to another Moment of Daily Encounter which is also the last day of 2022! And the Holy Ghost is saying, give God praise because it ended up in praise! You can do that by dancing, clapping, jumping, with musical instruments etc
Please understand that praise is a sickle for activating your harvest,! And that has been our focus of delebration since the commencement of the month. As we wrap it up today. We wish to say praise because it ended in praise;
Why are we shouting praise the Lord?
1. For the victory thus far:
1 Corinthians 15: 57. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
You, can imagine the several battles that confronted you this year. Battle against your soul, battle against your health, battle against your finances, battle against your marriage, family life, etc! In all of these battles, God gave you victory. That’s why we must dance and praise God.
2. It is in celebration of the faithfulness of El-shaddai! El- Shaddai means the mighty breasted one. The one that has the breast milk that can satisfy every one worldwide. So we are saying praise God in celebration of His Divine provision.
Beloved, as the year close out today, please close your door and dance in appreciation of what God has done for you within the year.
This is a celebration of the El-Shaddai! God is in interested in your display of attitude of gratitude not your perfection of how to dance. Praise and dance your way to 2023 and see God accompany you into the new year. Shun bitterness, Unforgiveness, murmuring and complaining and dance your way to 2023.
The reason why you must you dance your way to 2023?
1. It is because it draws down the hands of God;
The matter of dancing to the praise of most High God has much more than just moving your body. There is inherent power to draw down the hands of God into your situation.
The Bible in (Ps.149:3) reveals this instruction ‘let them praise Him in the dance ‘! Then the next verse said for the Lord takes pleasure in your dance (Ps.149:4). And as such He inhabit your praises (Ps.22;3).
2. It sealed your victory! If God has given victory over the year 2022, then dance to seal up your victory. In Exo.15:11-22, Moses led the people in praises to God and Miriam led the people in dance in praise of Jehovah to celebrate the victory of deliverance from slavery and victory of crossing the red sea!
Beloved, God expect you to praise and dance in appreciation to the mighty deliverance you have experience this year. Don’t neglect the little acts of God to you, if you can celebrate His finger (that thing you call little) with a dance then you are qualified for His hand.
3. Dancing is part of the protocol that usher in the Ark of God: The ark of God represent the presence of God today, so if you want to usher in the presence of God that will accompany you imto 2023, then adopt the principle of praising God with a dance. David the king was a man who understand the light behind dancing! David put to practice what he knows by dancing before God :
2 Samuel 6: 14. And David danced before the LORD with all his might; and David was girded with a linen ephod.
He dance with all his might! Every things inside him knows that somebody is dancing. He is not like some of us who know the truth of the scripture but fails to do it. David dance and forgot his status, he never mind whether his kingly rope is falling off or not (1Sam. 6:20)!
Remember this : Heaven is real and hell is real! God want to spent eternity with you. Will you permit him? Do so by giving your heart to Jesus today.
Prayer points :
– Father thank you for your word to me today.
– Lord, ignite in me with the passion for praise in a dance in the name of Jesus.
– Lord help me never to feel too big to dance your praise in the name of Jesus.
– I prophesy the release of Grace to dance your way to 2023 in the name of Jesus.
– I declare you are crossing over without carryover of sickness, pains etc in the name of Jesus.
