I felt the Lord saying that He is restoring praise back to the lips of His people. He is speak to His people again about the importance of praise. That through the storm and contending process, through the discouragement, through the onslaught of demonic attack to bring great fatigue and a crushing, many have lost their strength in continually “praising through the storm”. The burden of living in the “waiting room” has left many hearts heavy.
As the Lord reminds His people in many ways about the importance of praising Him in the midst of the storm, before the breakthrough, I saw these words of adoration leaving the mouths of the people of God and these words of praise were what looked like machetes on fire. They went out before the people of God and they began to carve a pathway before the people of God for greater encounters with Him, and a new level of intimacy. These machetes that were on fire also cut down “opposition” and “obstacles” at the knees and they crumbled.
As the people of God praised Him and lifted up His holy name despite what they saw in the natural, I heard another song being released in the heavens. The angels singing “Worthy is the Lamb, Worthy is the Lamb. If God is FOR YOU who can be against you? Oh how glorious and greater is He that lives in you than He that lives in the world. Praise is the platform for breakthrough! Praise is the platform for breakthrough! Praise is the platform for encounter! Praise is the platform for encounter! Praise is the platform for promotion.”
These words of praise not only carried love and adoration of God, but a sacrifice, an offering from the people of God. The Holy Spirit met this sacrifice of praise in great power and created HUGE shifts.
There was so much going on as the people of God praised. Before them these fiery machetes were making a way through the wilderness and the storm. Praise was leading them deeper into encounter with Him and lifting off heavy burdens. Praise was leading them into a heavenly chorus with angelic hosts in praising Him. Praise was paving the way for GREAT CHANGE. As His people praised, I saw what looked like clay on a potters wheel and I was reminded of Isaiah 64:8:
"O LORD, You are our Father, We are the clay, and You our potter; And all of us are the work of Your hand.”
As the people of God praised, I saw a moulding taking place in hearts of the people of God. He was moulding, shaping, cutting off and preparing. He was strengthening His people as they praised preparing them for the promotion that lay ahead. As they pressed into praise, they were moving from glory to glory.
NEW LEVELS AND EXPRESSIONS OF PRAISE
The Lord is not only reminding us as His people to continue to praise no matter what our natural eyes see, but restoring its importance to us through revelation. He is leading us to new levels and expressions of praise. New ways to release and express our love and adoration of Him. New and creative ways are being birthed to bring praise to Him, which is a new level of warfare and the enemy will run screaming.
Those who have found praise extremely difficult because of the hardship and disappointment, He is bringing strengthening as hands are raised to Him. He is unlocking a garment of praise over His people for the spirit of heaviness. (Isaiah 61:3)
THE PRAISING IS BRINGING A SHAKING
As the people of God praised Him through the difficulty and the storm, before the breakthrough, a heavenly earthquake was taking place and things that had stood in the way, and caused great stress and distress over the people of God began to break down and a “heavenly falling into place” was happening for the people of God. This is the year of greater alignment, and things were “clicking into place” like cog wheels on a clock as the people of God praised.
As these cogs clicked into place as the people of God had their eyes on Him and lifting up their praise, not only was the alignment taking place, and the enemy running afraid, but an acceleration of time/season/quickening was happening in the spirit as warfare was taking place
PRAISE WILL CLEAR THE HAZE AND LEAD YOU THROUGH THE MAZE
I saw many in confusion, and feeling like they could not see straight. All the opposition, fatigue and circumstances one after the other had caused a “fogginess”, a “haze” and unable to see with greater clarity.
As you continue to lift your voices to Him i praise, the Lord is clearing the haze and leading you through the confusing maze. A greater clarity is coming to you and a heavenly 20/20 vision.
As you walk through the haze and maze of confusion with praise, the Lord will meet you with clear direction, greater peace and ease through the difficulties and storm.
Don’t lose your weapon of praise! God is doing SO MUCH MORE IN AND THROUGH your praise than you realise.
