There are certain spiritual packages that you can find inside of praise; there are personalities, forces and powers you can access in the midst of praise. If you are looking for the address of God, go to the house of a praiser, as a praising saint will always command divine presence.
Anywhere people praise God, that’s where God relocates to, and when you know who is with you, you will do everything to keep him around.
Living a praiseful life is one way to keep divine presence around you, always. Murmuring and complaining will complicate your life, any day anytime.
WHAT THEREFORE IS IN PRAISE?
- Divine presence is in praise. Psalms 114:1-7 (KJV) – (1) “When Israel went out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people of strange language; (2) “Judah was his sanctuary, and Israel his dominion. (3) “The sea saw it, and fled: Jordan was driven back.” (4) “The mountains skipped like rams, and the hills like lambs.” (5) “What ailed thee, O thou sea, that thou fleddest? Thou Jordan, that thou wast driven back?” (6) “Ye mountains, that ye skipped like rams; and ye little hills, like lambs?” (7) “Tremble, thou earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob;”
God’s presence is found in praise; the presence of a man is equal to all he can do. The personality around you determines what can happen to you. The divine presence around you equals to every good thing in life.
His presence will always make the difference, and his presence can be provoked through your praiseful life. Understand that you cannot carry God and be rejected, no matter who is involved.
Therefore, praise Him not for the fun of it, but to provoke his presence upon your life.
- Inside praise is fresh anointing.
The anointing is operating beyond your limitations. It is riding on the wings of God’s grace and ability; not your experience or expertise. Acts 10:38 (KJV) – “How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.”
The anointing has the capacity to enhance your value. Psalms 89:20-24 (KJV) – “I have found David my servant; with my holy oil have I anointed him:” (21) “with whom my hand shall be established: mine arm also shall strengthen him.” (22) “The enemy shall not exact upon him; nor the son of wickedness afflict him.” (23) “And I will beat down his foes before his face, and plague them that hate him.” (24) “But my faithfulness and my mercy shall be with him: and in my name shall his horn be exalted.” The anointing also exempts you from afflictions and oppressions.
- Inside praise is miracle, signs and wonders, supernatural manifestations, signs, and wonders. Exodus 15:11 (KJV) – “Who is like unto thee, O Lord, among the gods? Who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?”
To keep God working, keep praising him; because, as long as your praise is up, the worker (behind everything working) is up. To keep the worker working, keep the praise on and flowing. Psalms 34:1 (KJV) – “I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.”
- In praise, God takes over our battles. Praise is a spiritual medium, with which we transfer our battles to God. . 2Chronicles 20:17-20, 22-24 (KJV) – (20) “And they rose early in the morning, and went forth, Jehoshaphat stood and said, Hear me, O Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem; Believe in the Lord your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper. (22) “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. (23) “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, everyone helped to destroy another. (24) “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.
Fasting and prayer are not the only means through which we engage in spiritual warfare; praise is also a proven recognized spiritual weapon with which we engage in spiritual battles.
Anyone that wants you dead, 7days from now, you will bury them!
The world is a battlefield, we are constantly faced with battles against our destinies. Ephesians 6:12 (KJV) – “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”
In praise, we hand over all our battles to God. Acts 16:25 (KJV) – “And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them”. However, it takes personal praise to experience personal victory.
God executes vengeance and judgment through our praise. Every time we praise him with understanding, knowing what is written concerning us and our enemies, God begins to melt out the punishment that is written for our enemies.
If you want to see the vengeance nature of God, you need to add dancing to your praising. Psalms 149:1/3 (KJV) – “Praise ye the Lord. Sing unto the Lord a new song, and his praise in the congregation of the saints”. Psalm 149:3 KJV
 Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp. Dancing in the midst of praise is provoking the God of vengeance to work.
The praise that must provoke his judgment against your enemies must be accompanied with all that is within you- you must dance to provoke the nature of God, called vengeance. Psalm 103:1-2 KJV
 Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.  Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Proverbs 11:21 (KJV) – “Though hand join in hand, the wicked shall not be unpunished: but the seed of the righteous shall be delivered.”
