The presence of God is to be enjoyed. Nothing can be more satisfying than being in his presence. We need to get addicted to his presence because the atmosphere of his presence is an atmosphere of all things possible. It is an atmosphere that unleashes the hand of God swiftly and mightily and easily too. I believe that it is easier to praise than to pray and that is why it is very important that believers come together to praise him under corporate anointing. When you corporately praise God, you will enjoy corporate anointing. There are things that cannot happen alone; one multiplied by any number remains that number, but if you multiply any number by two, there will be increase. Where two or three are gathered, the presence of God manifests.
Isa. 12:1-6, “And in that day thou shalt say, O LORD, I will praise thee: though thou wast angry with me, thine anger is turned away, and thou comfortest me. Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation. Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation. And in that day shall ye say, Praise the LORD, call upon his name, declare his doings among the people, make mention that his name is exalted. Sing unto the LORD; for he hath done excellent things: this is known in all the earth. Cry out and shout, thou inhabitant of Zion: for great is the Holy One of Israel in the midst of thee.” It is what you celebrate that you magnetize.
If you want to see the hand of God;
- Declare his works; declare his doings. Josh. 4:23-24, “For the LORD your God dried up the waters of Jordan from before you, until ye were passed over, as the LORD your God did to the Red sea, which he dried up from before us, until we were gone over: That all the people of the earth might know the hand of the LORD, that it is mighty: that ye might fear the LORD your God for ever.” The hand of God is not to be hidden it is to be displayed. God expects you to magnify what he is doing. Declare the works of God! You will have testimonies in your life that will become a reference point; testimonies that will silence the voice of the adversary. One of the ways to nullify the lies of the devil is to speak the word of God and encourage yourself in the Lord to fight the real battle. In the battle of faith, you need to speak, don’t keep quiet. Testimony is part of the overcomers’ weapon according to Revelations 12:11.
Isa. 41:20, “That they may see, and know, and consider, and understand together, that the hand of the LORD hath done this, and the Holy One of Israel hath created it.” If you are a child of God, you are an extension of the hand of God; a solution provider, a consultant. Take note, however, that just as there is the hand of God, there is also the hand of the devil, there is the hand of witchcraft, there is the hand of man, there is the hand of envious rivalry which works with the hand of the devil to create problems. That is why you should learn to magnify the hand of the Lord so that every hand that is contrary to His purpose in your life might be cut off. The Bible says that the Lord gave the word: great is the company of those that published it (Psa. 68:11). There is an anointing of greatness awaiting those who will publish what the Lord is doing.
- God, please help me. Where I have missed it, please forgive me. Grant me the grace to declare your works more than I declare the works of man, more that I declare what the enemy may be doing or saying in the name of Jesus.
- Grant me the grace to have the right testimony everywhere I go so that the enemy may always be defeated. Thank you blessed Lord.
- I ask you, O God, to help me to be one of those that magnify your word and your works in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen.
