Reasons To Praise God (Part 2) was taught by Rev. Dunamis Okunowo on the 6th of October 2021 during the Midweek Service at Shouts of Grace Center, Joke Plaza, Beside Trans Amusement Park, Bodija-UI Road, Ibadan.
In his teaching, Rev. Dunamis made mention of the following important points:
You praise God because:
God is great
Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised In the city of our God, In His holy mountain.Psalm 48:1 (NKJV)
Great is our Lord, and mighty in power; His understanding is infinite.Psalm 147:5 (NKJV)
Any time we praise God, we magnify Him in our eyes/consciousness. And as we do so, the mountains in our lives become like anthills.
In the realm of the spirit, you can only have what you see.
Every time you dwell on the problem/mountain, you diminish God in His ability to save you.
Once you stay in praise, there’s no way you won’t live in victory.
Praise will glorify God
Whoever offers praise glorifies Me; And to him who orders his conduct aright I will show the salvation of God.”Psalm 50:23 (NKJV)
The praising life is a life that is constantly praising God, regardless of the situation.
A praising life brings honour to God.
God commands it
Let everything that has breath praise the LORD. Praise the LORD!Psalm 150:6 (NKJV)
If you are a God-praiser, you can’t be a loser in this life.
Praising God is a decision, not something that depends on how you feel.
Being a believer doesn’t mean you will have it easy, but you will always have the victory.
A God-praiser never gets lost in the darkness. In your praise is where the victory lies.
The Word will work any time you are in praise.
Praise is never wasted; it waits
Praise is awaiting You, O God, in Zion; And to You the vow shall be performed.Psalm 65:1 (NKJV)
