Melody, the Weapon of Warfare! 2
“Oh come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker!” Psalm 95:6
The earthquake popped open the prison door and broke the chain off Paul and Silas’ hand and leg while praying and singing praise to God. The other prisoners were shocked and could not believe the power in their prayer and melody. The prison officers woke up, confused about what had happened. Some thought it was a dream; others knew it was not, but a real-life event from the HOLY GHOST. (Act 16:16-24).
Praise, worship, and prayer are not only about praising God; they are also a weapon of warfare that can be used against enemies beyond all doubt. When you worship with the pure and uncorrupted mind, heaven responds to your prayers, and you will never forget the peace of God’s presence in your heart. So instead of Paul and Silas complaining about their situation, the Bible said they pray and sing praises to God.
Psalm 50:15 says, “call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.”
I understand you are not in prison-like Paul and Silas, but some people have been locked up in their circumstances and don’t know how to get out of it. It looks like they are trapped in a failed relationship, failed business, failed ministry, or other personal life issues, and they can’t escape. If you are in that category, Brother and sister, do not believe the lie of the devil because Jesus is here with you to set you free. He will save you from all the troubles you are or may face today. He will bring peace to your soul, and you will be saved.
Come to Jesus with your prayer (burdens), come to him with your faithful heart (praise and worship), come to the throne of grace, and let him lead you in the way of righteousness. He will give you the strength and courage to stand up for what’s right. The Lord will give you the power to overcome any obstacle. This is your month of celebration; therefore, come to Jesus with a pure and joyful heart singing. Remember, You cannot conquer if you are filled with anger, hatred, and fear, but it will be easier to overcome any obstacles if you have faith in God.
Jesus said, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30
1. Lord, I thank you in spirit and truth for this day of peace, deliverance, and salvation.
2. In the name of Jesus, I pray that you help me through this challenging time of life by giving me the strength and courage to stand up for what I believe in.
3. In the name of Jesus, I break open every prison door of my life by speaking out against injustice and oppression. In the name of Jesus.
