Bible Meditation: 
2 Samuel 22: 1-20

“I will call on the LORD, who is worthy to be PRAISED; so shall I be saved from mine enemies” – 2 Samuel 22:4

God’s Purpose is to establish your Faith on the PEDESTAL of PRAISE for RESOUNDING VICTORY: “I will call on the LORD, who is worthy to be PRAISED; so shall I be saved from mine enemies” (2Sam.22:4). Praise is not a religious routine, exercise in entertainment or mere expression of emotions. Praise is a Believer’s vital spiritual force for Victory in life’s battles. Praise is the medium through God manifests as your Rock, Fortress, Deliverer, Shield, Horn of your Salvation, Stronghold, Refuge, and Saviour (vv.2-3). Praise overcomes the waves of death, the floods of ungodliness, the sorrows of Sheol, and the snares of death (vv.5-6). Praise commands divine forces – God’s arrows, thunder, lighting bolts, and blast of the breath of His nostrils (vv. 14-15). Through Praise, God empowers you to execute divine judgement (Psa.149:5-9).  

Praise brings the exaltation of God in the affairs of humanity. And when God is exalted, He ensures that everything pertaining to your life and destiny is elevated. Praise is a Vehicle for Faith. It opens channels for faith to flow, and for Victory to manifest. As you praise God, He strengthens your faith, which in turn establishes you firmer in Victory. By faith, you can praise your way into Victory. Praise lifts your eyes from the adversities to behold the Author and Finisher of your Faith (Heb.12:2). Praising God strengthens faith: “(Abraham) grew strong and was EMPOWERED BY FAITH as HE GAVE PRAISE and glory to God” (Rom.4:20 Amp). That’s how he walked in Victory!

Praise, as the Language of Faith, not only recounts past Victories, but declares future triumphs that have been perceived with the eyes of faith. Praising God shifts the Faith-gear from, “Bless me, Lord” to “I will bless You Lord”! Praising God releases your faith in His ability to take care of you and all your needs. Praise dissolves doubt, reinforces faith, and releases Grace for Victory! Praise silences the devil: “Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants You have ordained strength, because of Your enemies, that You may silence the enemy and the avenger” (Psa.8:2).

Praise is the Voice of Triumph: Oh, clap your hands, all you peoples! Shout to God with the Voice of Triumph!” (Psa.47:1). Faith-full Praise is the answer to overcoming defeat, discouragement, depression, and hopelessness. The secret to Victory is to alter the outflow of your tongue from complaints and murmuring, to thanksgiving and praises. Thereby, you’ll praise your way to Victory, which is your right by redemption: But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ” (1Cor.15:57). Again, “Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place” (2Cor.2:14). (Psa.47:1). Those who praise God join the Victory train.

Passionate praise, the praise that prevails, leaves no room for anxiety, complaining and negativity. God knows your heart; and He cares about all that concerns you. He asks you to cast all your cares on Him (1Pet. 5:7). Through praise, you focus on God, no longer allowing unnecessary attention to be centred on life’s troubles and struggles. Be reminded of what God has already done in your life; that He knows what concerns you; and is capable of taking care of all your burdens.

Stand on the Word of Faith to overcome all oppositions. Stand on the Pedestal of Praise to release God’s Victory-producing Power: “Whatsoever is born of God overcomes the world, and this is the Victory that overcomes the world, even our faith” (Jh.5:4). The greatest battles in your life will always bow in the Presence of Praise. When you become valiant in praise, you’ll become an unstoppable Conqueror in life! Through Praise, you invoke the might and omnipotence of God against all adversaries, oppositions, and oppressions. Standing on the Pedestal of Praise, it is impossible for your enemies to run you down, because Praise is where God lives and reigns: But You are holy, ENTHRONED in the PRAISES of Israel” (Psa.22:3).
