Have you ever seen God in action when He is given heartfelt praise? God does wonders when you give him quality praise; He does what will make your mouth drop down with a big WOW! God is really fearful in praises when you sing from a heart of love. This article aims to provoke you into giving God praise that will move Him to action in your direction.
Who is like You, O Lord, among the gods? Who is like You, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders? Exodus 15:11 (NKJV)
But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them. Suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone's chains were loosed. Acts 16:25-26 (NKJV)
The cheapest way to get God's attention is through praise. This is because God inhabits the praises of His people - Psalm 22:3. And He doesn't just accept your praises; He releases great blessings in the process.
When you give God quality praise, He does things that will make people, including your enemies to tremble. The Lord does fearful things. This is for men to fear Him (Ecclesiastes 3:14) and recognize that He indeed is the God Almighty.
In this article I will share some testimonies that made me to marvel and say, "truly God does fearful wonders when praised."
First, I will start with Paul and Silas. They praised God to the point that the foundations of the prison literally shook and everyone's chains were loosed. Praise unto God makes the impossible possible. Whatever chains around you, your family or destiny, will always give way when God comes to receive your praise.
Secondly, A Christian lady's sister was kidnapped for evil intentions. During that period, she was attending a bible school and that day the topic was on how God does fearful wonders when praised by men. And when she caught that revelation, there and then, she started praising God and her neighbor complained but she continued quietly till the end of the class.
After the class, she went to a corner and now praised God loudly. And her sister was miraculously restored. The fearful thing there was that when her sister returned she told an amazing story. Her kidnappers came in where she was with others, at the time this Christian lady was praising God, and demanded that she stop singing. She told them that she was not singing which her fellow captives confirmed and they left.
After a while they came back very furious, demanding that she stop singing. She told them again that she was not doing so. This continued until the leader of that evil group told his men to release the girl before something goes wrong for them. They released her and even gave her money to transport herself back home!
What happened there? God amplified this Christian lady's praises such that the kidnappers were hearing it where they were and God tormented them with it till they released her sister. God is fearful in praises!
Thirdly, a Christian gentleman did a job for a man and after which the man refused to pay him and asked him to go to court if he likes. He went severally to this man and pleaded that he pay him but this man refused. The man was influential and was sure that he would win no matter what this Christian gentleman does.
This Christian gentleman decided to report him to God and chose to give God quality praise in the midnight hours. Within three days of this hot praise to God, the man called this gentleman to come and collect his money. When he got there, the man asked him how much his company owed him, even though he had submitted the amount earlier. The Christian gentleman seized the opportunity and added all the cost of coming to plead for his money and the man paid all!
God surely must have troubled the man during the three days midnight praises and he quickly succumbed to a higher power that was more influential! God indeed is fearful in praises, doing wonders.
Finally, I will share my own testimony. When my husbanded was posted to another branch of the ministry, I had to look for a new job and I heard it was not easy getting one there. Many people were jobless also because of transfer of spouse. But I chose to praise God everyday for one hour. After three months, I called forth my new job and God miraculously gave me one that I had no certificate for, at the leading company in that Island, to the amazement of people.
In conclusion, there is nothing too hard for our God (Jeremiah 32:27). He will turn and turn situations until it favours you. But it requires that you learn how to move God into action and it will take praise to do so. Therefore gird yourself and engage the sickle of praise and you will see God do fearful wonders in your life.
