Dr Paul Enenche: The values of worship.
- Praise Takes God’s People To The High Places Of Life.
Habakkuk 3:18-19 yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will be joyful in God my Savior. The Sovereign LORD is my strength; he makes my feet like the feet of a deer, he enables me to go on the heights. For the director of music. On my stringed instruments.
Praise is your power to be raised. If you are not planning to be grinded, you must release His praise. If you are not planning for your life to be quarantined to the ground level, you must be a confirm worshipper. It is the power to be raised.
If the devil want to keep you in the pit, it steals your joy. Anything that you need to do, to ensure the flow of your praise is on, do it. It was praise that took David to the palace.
1 Samuel 16:17-21 So Saul said to his attendants, “Find someone who plays well and bring him to me.” One of the servants answered, “I have seen a son of Jesse of Bethlehem who knows how to play the harp. He is a brave man and a warrior. He speaks well and is a fine-looking man. And the LORD is with him.” Then Saul sent messengers to Jesse and said, “Send me your son David, who is with the sheep.” So Jesse took a donkey loaded with bread, a skin of wine and a young goat and sent them with his son David to Saul. David came to Saul and entered his service. Saul liked him very much, and David became one of his armor-bearers.
The door of the palace bowed to the key of praise. There is a place for you in the palace but it is not accessible without the key of praise.
2. It Triggers Potential Release In The Life Of God’s People.
Numbers 21:17 Then Israel sang this song: “Spring up, O well! Sing about it.
There is a well inside you, it is the well of potentials. That well bubbles with praise.
1 Samuel 10:4-6 They will greet you and offer you two loaves of bread, which you will accept from them. “After that you will go to Gibeah of God, where there is a Philistine outpost. As you approach the town, you will meet a procession of prophets coming down from the high place with lyres, tambourines, flutes and harps being played before them, and they will be prophesying. The Spirit of the LORD will come upon you in power, and you will prophesy with them; and you will be changed into a different person.
In the climate of praise, human potentials comes under the pressure of release.
Why will he prophesy? Was it just because he met the company of prophet? No! He will prophesy because in that company of prophets, there was worship and that worship put the prophetic potentials inside of him under the pressure of release.
3. Its A Magnet Of Favour For God’s People.
When you are a worshipper, there is a climate established around your life that becomes a climate of favour, easy likability, extra usual attractiveness.
Acts 2:47 praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.
4. Establishes God’s Presence Around God’s People.
Every praiser of God is a Divine presence carrier. God lives in the praise of His people.
Psalm 22:3 Yet you are enthroned as the Holy One; you are the praise of Israel.
Psalm 89:15 Blessed are those who have learned to acclaim you, who walk in the light of your presence, O LORD.
Psalm 100:4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.
The presence of God, is the responsibility of the priest to carry. The identity of a priest is the presence of God. You know a priest by the fact that when you are around him, you feel God.
Deuteronomy 10:8 At that time the LORD set apart the tribe of Levi to carry the ark of the covenant of the LORD, to stand before the LORD to minister and to pronounce blessings in his name, as they still do today.
Powerful praisers are powerful presence carriers. Show me a powerful worshipper, I will show you a powerful divine presence carrier.
5. It Connects The Saint With Power From On High.
To be praise-full is to be powerful.
Psalm 21:13 Be exalted, O LORD, in your strength; we will sing and praise your might.
The presence of praise, is the presence of power. The absence of praise is the absence of power.
Psalm 150:1 Praise the LORD. Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens.
Praise positions you in the firmament of His power.
Praise positions you in the climate of His power.
Praise positions you in the territory of His power.
6. It Gives The Saint Access To The Voice Of God.
Hearing the voice of God, knowing the voice of God, is what authenticates priesthood.
Isaiah 30:29-30 And you will sing as on the night you celebrate a holy festival; your hearts will rejoice as when people go up with flutes to the mountain of the LORD, to the Rock of Israel. The LORD will cause men to hear his majestic voice and will make them see his arm coming down with raging anger and consuming fire, with cloudburst, thunderstorm and hail.
As you live a life of praise and worship, you live a life of high frequency transmission.
