Read Acts 16:25-26 and Isaiah 45:2
Just recently, God instructed me to praise Him for things I have been praying for. He said, “No longer pray for these petitions as if it has not happened, but begin to praise as if it has already happened!”
For a stronger confirmation, I opened my Bible and my eyes fell on Acts 16:25-26 and I knew God was speaking to me once again.
Praise Him in the valleys
The scriptures speak of Paul and Silas who were put into jail for merely performing the great works of God. The act of being placed in jail represents the trials and tribulations we too face today. The key behind the scriptures informs us Paul and Silas did not view their current situation as hopeless, but they praised God for what He was going to do. They praised God with such an awesome power that all the prisoners throughout the jail heard their praise.
Suddenly! The scripture tells us suddenly, there was a great earthquake, the prison began to shake and all the doors opened and each prisoner’s band loosen. The word suddenly is defined as something happening quickly. If you want to see God make big changes in your life, begin to praise Him big and immediately God will begin to work on your behalf!
Start now to praise God in advance. And suddenly, you will see your mountains being leveled and your crooked places made straight, refer to Isaiah 45:2!
Reflection: I challenge you to begin to praise God for prayers you expect to come to pass! And suddenly, you will see God do a big thing in your life.
