Praise Brings Encounter

Encourage a Holy Ghost Party today – and shift the atmosphere around you!

Years ago, the authorities in an oppressive government seized two men, dragged them off and beat them. Their crime? Being Christian and talking to others about their faith. Bleeding and bruised, the men were finally thrown into a jail cell and shackled to a wall. By midnight, they had decided how to respond to their pain: They began to pray and sing praises to God.

Praise can become an enormous opportunity… a sacrifice is something surrendered and something is released (Heb 13:15).

Acts 16 recounts what happened next: “Suddenly there was an earthquake, so violent that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone’s chains were unfastened…” The jailer ended up taking Paul and Silas to his home, washing their wounds, and begging them to baptize him and his family.

Incredible isn’t it… this is how praise brings spiritual encounter. Something is shaken and something is loosed; so that God can have His way in the midnight hour.

When we praise God in the midst of dark moments, we are surrendering our plans to His Divine order. While we are simply offering the fruit of our lips, God is coming to the rescue of His covenant child. Praise is an avenue into God’s courtroom where the drama of Earth is aligned with the judgements of Heaven (Ps. 100:4-5). Jesus said pray, “Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.” (Mt. 6:10) Praise brings encounters that transform how people see, hear and respond to everything! The atmosphere changes as the Kingdom of God rushes in to take dominion where darkness once reigned!
