Praise Precedes the Victory!
by: Nicola McFadden, Nikimac
Beloved... There is always a praise that precedes the move of God. Wherever you find a mighty move of God, it is always associated with a sound of worship to God that call forth the manifestation of His Glory in miracles of healing, signs, wonders, deliverance, breakthroughs, and blessings. So no what you have been through; no matter what you are going through; no matter where you find yourself today or how you are feeling; no matter your fear of the unknown future... Open your mouth and declare praises to God. We overcome by the Blood of the Lamb and the Words of our testimony.
When Jesus was about to raise Lazarus from the dead, they took away the stone. Then Jesus looked up and said, “Father, I thank You that You have heard Me. I knew that You always hear Me, but I say this for the benefit of the people standing here, so they may believe that You sent Me.” After Jesus had said this, He called out in a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out!"
"O LORD, I will praise you, no matter I am going through, whether happy or sad because I owe my praises all to you. O LORD, be magnified! The Lord on high is mighty. Your precepts are fully confirmed and completely reliable; Holiness adorns Your house, O Lord, forever. I will bless the Lord at all times: His praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul shall make her boast in the Lord: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad. O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt His name together. I sought the Lord, and He heard me and delivered me from all my fears. They looked unto Him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed.
O God, you are good. You are good all the time; All the time You are good!. You're a good, good Abba Father! LORD, goodness is embodied in who You are and You can be nothing else other than good. The joy the Lord is my Strength! You're the Lifter of my head! When I think of the goodness of Jesus and all that He has done for me! Where would I be without you, O LORD? For even in wrath, LORD, you earnestly remember mercy, grace, goodness, compassion and steadfast love. Amazingly Awesome God! He is the Giver of Salvation! The Light and Savior of the World! The Resurrection and Life! I worship You, not only for what you do but for who You are... I will forever testify to Your Character and Your Conduct - Indeed, You are The Prince of Peace, my Provider, my Physician, my Protector... You are worthy, O LORD, for all praises, exaltation, and honor... Power, Majesty, and Glory belong to You. You're indescribable! King of the Universe, Almighty, All-Powerful, Sovereign God, O LORD of Hosts...
He is the Maker of heaven and earth, the sea, and everything in them-- He remains faithful forever.
Jesus, you have overwhelmingly won the victory. You have won it all for me! Thank you, LORD, Hallelujah!
Do it again, O LORD, manifest your Glory to transform my life, the lives of my children, my household, my family, my finances and all our concerns as well as a divine touch in the lives of everyone reading this post, in Jesus name, Amen!🙏"
