Many homes today have television sets but how many have a CD player or any other music player? Many don’t even consider it a priority. Do you know that sound is a transformer? The first energy that was released at the re-creation of the earth was sound – “and God said”. You can re-create your world by the word of God that is played in your environment. The easiest way to drive away demons is through praise. When you praise, God comes down and takes over. Do you think God is happy whenever he sees any of his children in chains?
A sister was brought to our deliverance session some years back. She was so thin and emaciated when she came for the first time that she looked over seventy years of age, but she knew how to praise. Whenever we started singing, she would start dancing and dancing until she was slain and we would leave her there. As that continued meeting after meeting, we started noticing changes in her appearance. Flesh started coming on her and she was visibly being transformed. Within a short period of time, she was visibly transformed and she started looking her real age of below thirty. We never knew that she was so pretty. After some time, she was completely transformed with no trace of any sickness in her or demonic oppression.
By the time she returned to her base outside Lagos, a young man proposed marriage to her; she got married and was fully restored to the glory of God. I can go on and on and on. Nobody laid hands on her; it was just praise that got the job done. Praise drives away demons easily.
Praise releases earthquake. I have experienced the power of praise transforming lives, changing situations and moving the hand of God. Acts 16:25-26, “And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them. And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one’s bands were loosed.” A thousand tongues is not enough to praise God. The anointing that praise releases is uncommon. Praise not only brings deliverance, it brings marvelous transformations and restorations. The sister in the first story was completely restored. She secured a fantastic job in the United Kingdom, her passport was released and she has been there with her children ever since. One glorious moment of divine intervention that the atmosphere of praise brings can turn situations around and change your family condition.
The atmosphere of praise has produced numerous testimonies in my personal life. At a time in my life when I needed to leave my job for a better one, I was invited to a Church where the Pastor was a very good worshiper : a very charismatic pastor, song writer and composer. He sang songs of praise that I knew in a very spectacular way and I was so carried away. A particular song that caught my interest is “All glory glory glory to the Lord, hallelujah, hosanna, hosanna, hosanna, blessed be the name of the Lord.’ I took the song home; I started singing it everywhere I went until it settled inside of me, it kept bubbling in my heart. Suddenly, all the applications I wrote for job started receiving positive responses, I started receiving invitation for interviews; sometimes I would have two in a day! It was during one of such interviews that I was told to get ready to travel to the United States of America, an all expenses paid trip for a very extensive training in Engineering. Learn to saturate your life with praise and you will see the hand of God like never before.
