Praise Has Power

But You are holy, enthroned in the praises of Israel.
– Psalm 22:3 NKJV
Many people are familiar with the statement: “There’s power in praise.” It’s true, and when we praise God from our hearts, we exert power in the spiritual realm. God Himself inhabits the praises of His people, according to our scripture for today.
Think about how this applies to your life. How many times have you walked into a church service or a conference and felt “blah” when you first arrived, but then felt better after a few minutes of praising God? You see, praise brings a release of our burdens; it takes our focus off of ourselves and our problems and puts it on God—and that always makes us feel better.
You don’t have to wait for a church service or a conference to praise God and experience the power of praise in your life. I encourage you to praise at home, in the car—and everywhere you possibly can. Live every day with praise on your lips and you’ll find that your power for living everyday life just keeps increasing.
