SPIRITUAL POWER IN PRAISE

The glory of the Lord filled the house of God through praise (2 Chronicles 5:13, 14). Praising the Lord in advance of the battle brought a great victory (2 Chronicles 20:1-24). "But You are holy, who inhabit the praises of Israel" (Psalm 22:3). God inhabits the praises of His chosen people. A person who truly praises God from his heart will be more Spirit-filled, for God will inhabit those praises. Praise is a sure way to have more of the presence and power of God in one’s life.

Spiritual power from the Lord comes by His Spirit ("be filled with the Spirit"); by His Word, His Blood, His Name, His Love; through the effectual, fervent prayer of a righteous man; and through obedience to God. In this booklet we have seen yet another dimension of power—that of praising the Lord. The more loving praise one gives to God, the more spiritual power he will have.
