The Power of Praise & Worship

The Power of Praise & Worship By - Dr. Dale A. Robbins
Acts 16:23-26 “And when they had laid many stripes upon them, they cast them into prison, charging the jailor to keep them safely:(24) Who, having received such a charge, thrust them into the inner prison, and made their feet fast in the stocks.(25) And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them.(26) And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one’s bands were loosed.”

This Bible story begins the unjust arrest of Paul and Silas. Because they had cast a spirit of divination out of a girl, the local Philippian authorities beat them and then threw them into a jail cell. Besides the trauma of the severe beating, they were fastened in stocks which clamped their arms and legs in an immobile position, causing cramps and loss of circulation. The atmosphere there was depressing. According to the standards of that day, a prison was more like the resemblance of a dungeon. A dark, damp, stench-ridden place, with no facility for waste or comforts of any kind.

Yet, in spite of the throbbing pain in their bodies and the disheartening atmosphere, at midnight Paul and Silas were heard praying and singing praises to God! What a strange sound this must have been to the other prisoners, who were used to only hearing the groans or cursings of those who had been beaten.
Then suddenly, there was an earthquake that shook the prison! The doors flung open, and amazingly, the bonds of Paul, Silas, and every other prisoner were released! What caused this mighty discharge of power?

Praise Elevates us into God’s Presence and Power
Paul and Silas knew the secret of how to lift their hearts above their troubles and enter into God’s presence and power. Through praise and worship their hearts were raised into the joyous presence and peace of God, and provided God a channel for his power to operate in their circumstances.

The Bible says that God inhabits in the praises of His people (Psalms 22:3). In other words, God “dwells” in the atmosphere of His praise. This means that praise is not merely a reaction from coming into His presence - Praise is a vehicle of faith which brings us into the presence and power of God! Praise and worship is the “gate-pass” which allows us to enter the sacredness of His glory. The psalmist writes, “Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name” (Psalms 100:4).

This corresponds with Jesus’ teaching, that His presence will inhabit the gathering of believers who congregate in His name: “For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them” (Matthew 18:20). A “gathering in His name” means that Jesus must be the focus, the center of the assemblage. He must be the one preached about, sung about — the one praised and worshiped. “I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee” (Hebrews 2:12). Consequently, Christ’s presence, along with His virtue and anointing, is manifested in this type of gathering.

Have you ever noticed when “gifts of the Spirit” operate in a church service? The power and anointing of the Holy Spirit usually becomes evident, subsequent to a time of worship and praise. Some think that worship is a response after the Holy Spirit moves upon them. However, it’s the other way around. God’s presence responds when we move upon Him with worship! Lifting up Jesus Christ through praise and worship invokes the Lord’s presence and power to flow in our midst.

What is Praise?
Praise means “to commend, to applaud or magnify.” For the Christian, praise to God is an expression of worship, lifting-up and glorifying the Lord. It is an expression of humbling ourselves and centering our attention upon the Lord with heart-felt expressions of love, adoration and thanksgiving. High praises bring our spirit into a pinnacle of fellowship and intimacy between ourselves and God — it magnifies our awareness of our spiritual union with the most high God. Praise transports us into the realm of the supernatural and into the power of God. “Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound: they shall walk, O LORD, in the light of thy countenance” (Psalms 89:15).

There are many actions involved with praise to God — verbal expressions of adoration and thanksgiving, singing, playing instruments, shouting, dancing, lifting or clapping our hands. But true praise is not “merely” going through these motions. Jesus spoke about the hypocrisy of the pharisees, whose worship was only an outward show and not from the heart. “This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me” (Matthew 15:8). Genuine praise to God is a matter of humility and sincere devotion to the Lord from within.

Unpretentious praise and worship pleases the Lord. He delights in the love and devotion of His children. According to the scriptures, the various expressions of praise bring blessing to the Lord. He eagerly awaits the fragrance of our affections, desiring to manifest His sweet presence and power in our midst. “...the true worshipers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him” (John 4:23).

Praise to God is a Lifestyle
All too often, praise to God is something that many people leave at church, an event that happens only when they come together with other Christians. However, praise should be a part of a believers lifestyle, inter-mingled as a part of their daily prayer-life. At work, in the car, at home in bed, or anywhere; praise to the Lord brings the refreshing of the Lord’s presence, along with His power and anointing. “...I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth” (Psalms 34:1).

Praise is an expression of faith, and a declaration of victory! It declares that we believe God is with us and is in control of the outcome of all our circumstances (Romans 8:28). Praise is a “sacrifice,” something that we offer to God sacrificially, not just because we feel like it, but because we believe in Him and wish to please Him. “By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name” (Hebrews 13:15).

Praise Sends the Enemy Running
Since praise manifests God’s presence, we also realize that praise repels the presence of the enemy, Satan. An atmosphere which is filled with sincere worship and praise to God by humble and contrite hearts is disgusting to the Devil. He fears the power in the name of Jesus, and flees from the Lord’s habitation in praise. “Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me: and to him that ordereth his conversation aright will I show the salvation of God” (Psalms 50:23).
When the children of Judah found themselves outnumbered by the hostile armies of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, King Jehoshophat and all the people sought the Lord for His help. The Lord assured the people that this would be His battle. He told them to go out against them, and He would do the fighting for them. So what did the children of Judah do? Being the people of “praise” (Judah actually means Praise), and knowing that God manifests His power through praise, they sent their army against their enemies, led by the praisers!

So on they went, ahead of the army declaring, “Praise the Lord, for His mercy endureth forever!” And the scripture says, “...when they began to sing and to praise, the LORD set ambushments against the children of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, which were come against Judah; and they were smitten” (2 Chronicles 20:22).
When God’s people begin to praise His name, it sends the enemy running! I challenge you to become a person of praise, and you will experience the release of the power of God!

Sedikit Gmbr2 semasa retret

Gambar2 Retret n KKR 2009


Akhirnya kita sdh selesai utk dua aktiviti gereja iaitu Retret dan KKR, puji Tuhan atas penyertaan dan layan yang kita terima sepanjang dua acara ini berlangsung. Secara peribadi saya melihat ramai anak2 muda yang mengikuti retret pd tahun ini telah mengalami satu transformasi dan restorasi secara peribadi. Mari kita kongsikan bersama dgn rakan2 kita yg tdk sempat mengikuti retret melalui tindakan iman kita agar kita sama2 menikmati transformasi ini dan mengalir bersama dalam pelayanan yang akan datang. Melalui KKR jg pastinya ramai anak2 muda yang telah dipulihkan. Ok..saya akan posting nota2 ceramah semasa retret n KKR dlm masa yag akn dtg.

Nota: Gambar2 semasa retret n KKR saya tdk dpt upload memandangkan ianya memerlukan memory yg besar. so sesiapa yg mau gambar2 tu boleh minta dgn sa melalui email atau tumb drive.


Selamat Melayani

Retret Gereja


Bagi sdra2 yg telah mendaftar dan ingin mengikuti retret pada kali ini, saya mencadangkan kepada rakan2 semua utk membaca Yes 40:3-5. Ianya mengenai dgn persiapan kita semua secara peribadi. Klu kita mahukan ada perubahan atau mau diri kita di restorasikan secara dalaman maka saya rasa perlunya persiapan setiap kita supaya setiap perkara2 yang menjadi penghalang dapat di runtuhkan agar diri kita ada perubahan melalui retret ini.

Dalam Yes 40:3-5;
40:3 Ada suara yang berseru-seru: "Persiapkanlah di padang gurun jalan untuk TUHAN, luruskanlah di padang belantara jalan raya bagi Allah kita!
40:4 Setiap lembah harus ditutup, dan setiap gunung dan bukit diratakan; tanah yang berbukit-bukit harus menjadi tanah yang rata, dan tanah yang berlekuk-lekuk menjadi dataran;
40:5 maka kemuliaan TUHAN akan dinyatakan dan seluruh umat manusia akan melihatnya bersama-sama; sungguh, TUHAN sendiri telah mengatakannya."

Bagi rakan2 yg tdk berkesempatan utk mengikut retret kali ini, saudara boleh mengikut KKR yg diadakan pada 2-3/05/09 di SIB ASIA CITY, KOTA KINABALU.
2/05 - malam sabtu (jam 7pm)
3/05 - pagi ahad (jam 9am)
3/05 - malam ahad (jam 7pm)
Pengkhotbah: Pdt Saster Sembiring
Akhir sekali selamat mengikuti retret dan dtg ke KKR seterusnya.
God Bless u all....
