Do we really love Him? His Word says praise His name; for it is pleasant. It is pleasant to praise God. Praises bring the presence of God in our midst and we can discern knowledge, yokes can be broken and the anointing comes down. There is a saying, ‘the praises go up, blessings come down’. When we praise God we ought to feel His love. His love is power. Sharper than any two-edged sword, great, everlasting. God is love, God is the Word, and love is power. Love can divide things or bring things together. God can bring enemies together; He is love.
When we really love God, we praise Him and we walk with Him daily by acknowedging Him and His Son Jesus. We speak Jesus. Hebrews 4:12, says, “For the Word of God is quick and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” God’s Word is alive. He discerns our thoughts, and He knows those that truly love Him. His Word can reach the heart of humans, but we must love Him.
The Holy Spirit can touch your heart. The Word of God can bring your enemies closer to you when you show them love. The Bible says as a man thinks, so is he, Proverbs 23:7, “For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he;”. What are you thinking about your life, your ministry, your family, your finances, your future? What we think, so are we, but God must be first. When we have enemies God will work on them. When we are doing good by others and they do not return the favor or the character, give them to God. Move away from their snares, and hand it to God. Pray that the Holy Spirit touches their heart, because God’s Word is power!
God knows what we need. Keep praising Him. He knows. He will deliver us and redeem us. God will restore. Praise God, not for the things, but for who He is; God Almighty! He shall bring it to pass. Amen!
