MFM Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 17 October 2018 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – Praise: A Deliverance Tool
TOPIC — Praise: A Deliverance Tool (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 17 October 2018)
FIRE SCRIPTURE: 2 Chronicles 20:20-22
MEMORY VERSE: “And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them.” – Acts 16:25
There are so many deliverance tools that are available and that God uses. Many of them are found in the Old Testament. They are still operational today and will still be used till the arrival of our Lord Jesus Christ. There is one tool that many of us have neglected, and do not even think about when it comes to issue of deliverance. This is the tool of praise. Information got to Jehoshaphat that other neighbouring kings have formed an alliance and were coming to fight him and his people. He became very afraid but reminded God of His power and deeds in the past, and how He drove out their enemies and handed over the land to them. Then, the Spirit of God came upon Jehaziel and he prophesied that the battle was the Lord’s. The king and his people bowed unto the Lord and praised Him with a loud voice, singing unto the Lord, praising Him before the army with the song, “Praise the Lord for His mercy endureth forever.”
Beloved, the army only praised God. The power of praise came down and the Lord laid an ambush against all the enemies that came against Judah. All the enemies in their multitude destroyed themselves by themselves. Praise is a powerful tool for deliverance. Also, Paul and Silas were imprisoned. Rather than weeping, they began to praise God inside the prison and the power of praise descended and suddenly there was a great earthquake. The foundation of the prison was shaken, all the doors of the prison were thrown open and every one’s bands were loosed. Eventually, the unbeliever-jailer gave his life to Christ. Beloved, rise up today and praise the Lord, and you shall see His good works. Any bondage in your life and career shall be loosened, and all yokes shall break; poverty shall give way, and power to prosper beyond your imagination shall locate you, in Jesus’ name. Cultivate this habit and the Lord shall visit you and deliver you.
WE HAVE NO POWER TO CHOOSE OUR BATTLES, BUT WE HAVE THE POWER TO CHOOSE OUR WEAPONS.
You shall praise God today and all yokes shall break by the power of praise.
1. Father, I thank You for keeping me alive to praise You today, in the name of Jesus.
2. As I praise God today, and henceforth, you the spirit of fear tormenting me, die, in Jesus’ name.
3. Thou demons of fear, assigned to torment my life and my family in the dream, by the power of praise, die, in Jesus’ name.
4. O Lord, my Father, by the power of praise, release Your angels of warfare to destroy every enemy of my peace, in Jesus’ name.
5. Every group of powers and demons encompassed around my life, by the power of praise, be ambushed by the angels of God, in Jesus’ name.
6. Power of God, visit the camp of my enemies as I praise God now and destroy them, in Jesus’ name.
7. Power to praise and worship God, come upon me, in the name of Jesus.
