Psalm 67: 1-7

Let the peoples praise You, O God; let all the peoples praise You. Then the earth shall yield her increase; God, our own God, shall bless us” – Psalm 67:5-6

GOD’S WORD is profuse with WONDERS of PRAISE: “Let the peoples praise You, O God; let all the peoples praise You. Then the earth shall yield her increase; God, our own God, shall bless us. God shall bless us; and all the ends of the earth shall fear him” (Psa.67:5-7). God does wonders through praise. God is “glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders” (Exo.15:11). His strange acts and mighty works are ignited by the intentional heartfelt Praise of His people. When we praise God, the unusual happens. When praise goes up from the earth, heaven releases blessings and miracles. God is Almighty and can do everything for Himself! Yet, He calls us to praise Him. When we do for God what He wouldn’t do for Himself, He will do for us that which we cannot do for ourselves. Life’s challenges often answer faster to Praise!

Praise is proof of putting God first! And when we appreciate the Priority of Praise, we’ll never be frustrated or defeated in life. Here are Ten mighty things God does in response to Praise – Ten Wonders of Praise:

Praise promotes productivity and guarantees supernatural increase in life and destiny (vv.5-6). When we praise God, the earth surrenders its abundance. Our Praise is the catalyst for releasing heaven’s abundant harvest; the supernatural water and fertilizer for productive seeds.  Praise is a Lifter. When we praise God, the earth yield’s her increase and blessings for us. His Praise can increase one from zero to hero; from a nonentity to a celebrity; from lack to abundance. Praise can transform our spiritual life from lukewarmness to fervency of the Spirit.

Praise grants access into God’s Presence (Psa.22:3). God resides permanently in the Praise of His people. Praise is His natural Habitat. His house is praise. God doesn’t live in bitterness, grudges and quarrels, but in an atmosphere of praise.

Praise is the master key to open heaven and gates of breakthroughs (Psa.100:4). None has a right to enter into God’s premises or inner courts, without praise. With Praise, heavens open, grace descends, and the earth hears our voice. Praise to God is a way maker.

Praise attracts God’s Mercy and Compassion: “Because Your lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise You” (Psa.63:3).

Praise breaks the yoke of barrenness: “He grants the barren woman a home, like a joyful mother of children. Praise the Lord” (Psa.113:9).

Praise to God is a divine weapon of vengeance to punish the wicked and execute God’s wrath and judgment (Psa.149:5-9). Giving praise to God mesmerizes the devil and all his agents. It bamboozles witches and wizards. There’s no need to fight with our hands or argue with the enemies; as we turn to praise, they’re broken into pieces. Nothing makes the devil powerless like high praises to God. Charms, invocation, sorcery, enchantments, divination and the enemy’s operations are rendered useless and paralyzed by the power of praise.

Praise guarantees total Victory via Divine Intervention (2 Chr.20:21-24). Five kings ganged up against King Jehoshaphat. The people sought the Lord and He gave them the Praise-Weapon strategy – Voices and Instruments of Praise – to defeat the enemies! When we praise God, He takes over our battles and fights for us. He uses the humanly ridiculous to produce the miraculous! Victorious Believers are praiseful!

Praise terminates the spirit of Depression (Isa.61:1-4). The Garment of Praise is cure to the spirit of heaviness. Putting on Praise as garment, our lives will never cease to radiate joy. Praise turns ashes to beauty and mourning to Joy.

Praise assures of dominion and royalty in life and destiny (Gen 49:8-10). Judah means Praise. The scepter of dominion remains in the hands of the one who, like David, knows how to praise God. We can take command on the earth through the instrumentality of praise.

To be praiseful is to be grateful. To be ungrateful is to be a great fool. Let’s put on the Garment of Praise, celebrate the King of kings, and enjoy the Wonders of Praise!

Lord, inspire us to put on the Garment of Praise, to be praiseful and grateful, and enjoy the WONDERS of PRAISE, in Jesus’ name.
