In a vision, I saw a Child of God who was feeling hopeless. They were down on their knees weeping. They had let their flesh “dampen” their spirit man.
But the Father was sending His Holy Fire, a Holy Spark to reignite them. Because when we see as the Spirit does, we see the victory!
Therefore, praise God even when you don’t see anything happening. Praise even when you don’t “feel” like it.
Let your spirit OVERRIDE your flesh! For The Holy Spirit in you SEES the victory!
Your “flesh” man only sees the problem. Your spirit man sees the victorious outcome in Christ Jesus. Do not quench the Spirit no matter what is going on in the natural.
Praise was made for us! Worship is a weapon of our warfare! Let your Spirit go free and praise The LORD! You will be like an eagle soaring! Like a lion roaring!
I can just see the demons flee with their hands over their ears as our PRAISE rings forth through the atmosphere!
“Beloved. No more striving, My Child. For you no longer walk in the flesh but in the Spirit. Praise and worship are a Heavenly Weapon I have given to you.
Not in your own power or might, but by My Spirit working in you. Your praise OVERRIDES your flesh. This is why I have ordained praise even in the mouths of babes to STILL the avenger and silence the enemy!
When you praise and worship, I SHUT the mouths of the evil lions who seek to destroy you. Do you see this, My Child? Oh, Beloved, I AM not an egotistical God who desires praise for My own sake.
Religion has gotten it wrong, Dear One. Praise and worship are your weapons to defeat the enemy and show forth My Glory in your life!
The devil understands the POWER of it and he would deter you from it if he can! Do not succumb to his tactics.
Do not listen to his whispers of defeat. Strongholds shall come down as you praise your Almighty God!
The enemy cannot stand your praise and worship. As it is written: I have chosen the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; I have chosen the weak things of the world to shame the strong.
I have hidden these things from the “wise and learned” of the world and revealed them to you, My Precious One!
Let your spirit rejoice, Beloved! Shout unto God with the Voice of Triumph! Do not allow your flesh to dampen the Spirit in you!
You are an OVERCOMER! You are ALIVE in Me! Raise a Hallelujah in the presence of your enemies and sing it a little louder!
The enemy shall FLEE! As you praise, you shall soar like the eagle and roar like the Lion and NOTHING shall be impossible to you who believe!”
