"Ki la n foba pe, Oba o, Oba lase Oba"(praises for a king in Yoruba) King Adekunle turned around to see his daughter dancing with drummers. Today had been a very difficult day in court, some of his subjects had got him angry but all of that melted away as his daughter danced and sang his praises. The whole court and all his chiefs also switched into singing and dancing, the atmosphere of the court changed, it suddenly became one of joy and laughter.
He knew she wanted something and of course she would get whatever she wanted, among all his daughters Asake was definitely the wisest, she knew how to get things from him.
"My darling Asake, I really enjoyed your dance, what is it that you want, I will give it to you up to half my kingdom". Asake hugged her father and said "daddy there's this new car that just came out, I want it for my birthday" King Adekunle looked at his daughter and smiled " that is too small, I will give you that car and also buy you a house, you are my daughter, you should begin to have real estate" Asake screamed and hugged her father "thank you daddy, you are the best"
Beloved no matter how old you are, you are a child in the presence of God and we are always delighted to see our children especially when they appreciate us. If you study the biggest miracles of Jesus, He didn't pray much but He gave thanks! When Jesus fed the 5000, He lifted the bread and fish to heaven and gave thanks and suddenly that which was not enough became more than enough! When Jesus raised Lazarus who had been dead for 3 days, Jesus also gave thanks and the dead came back to life!
Let me tell you a secret, when you raise your hands to praise and worship God, you are not the only one singing and dancing, all of the angels and the host of heaven also joins you! If you have ever been in the presence of an important person, you will understand that they don't do anything alone. When a king is happy, his entourage is happy, when a king laughs, his entourage laughs. A king's entourage does whatever a king does! You can cause a party to happen in heaven with your praise and worship!
The bible says in Psalm 67:5-7 (KJV)
5Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee.
6Then shall the earth yield her increase; and God, even our own God, shall bless us.
7God shall bless us; and all the ends of the earth shall fear him.
Have you ever eaten food without water? It will take time before it goes down your throat and it might even choke you. That is what it is like when you pray without thanksgiving. Praise and worship is like the cup of water near the plate of food you are eating, it gets it to your stomach and satisfies your hunger!
When you want to see God move in a way that He has never done before, switch to praise and worship! The bible tells us that God is glorious in holiness and fearful in praises doing WONDERS! Exodus 15:11
What will you do about that situation that's been pending from now on? Yep! You got it! Praise and worship and watch God move!
My 20 year dream is to see the Gospel preached to a billion people through the social media. You too can be a social media evangelist, kindly share and repost this Gospel of Jesus Christ so that others can be blessed just like you have been blessed. Thank you for reading. Shalom
Jesus is Lord
