Did you know that you have a tool within you that causes spiritual darkness to run? It's called PRAISE. Praise is a powerful weapon that the enemy hates. When you make a will decision to praise God, even when you are downcast and disturbed in your soul--you will feel better. Praise changes attitudes, mindsets, atmospheres, and environments. Praise will lift your spirit!
When we begin to praise God, his glory is manifested in the earthly realm. When his glory is manifested, anything unlike him must go! The challenge is, God when you are feeling downcast, worried, anxious, depressed, distressed, sad, or unhappy you may not "feel" like praising God--but that is the time to do it!
One of the tricks of the enemy is to keep us in a constant state of distress so that we do not have the energy or desire to praise God. And when we side with how we feel, the enemy wins. We have given him legal license and permission to torment our soul. Don't let him win! Turn the tables! Begin to praise God and you will win. The enemy of your soul is defeated and you are victorious!
