The power of praise: an asset for the liberation of the people of God

Tuesday August 8, 2023

Theme: “The power of praise: an asset for the liberation of the people of God Text: 1 Samuel 2:1-11

1. Anna prayed, and said, My heart rejoices in the LORD, My strength is lifted up by the LORD; My mouth is opened against my enemies, For I rejoice in your help. 2. No one is holy like the Lord; There is no other God but you; There is no rock like our God. 3. Don't speak so haughtily anymore; Let arrogance no longer come out of your mouth; For the Lord is an all-knowing God, And by him all actions are weighed. 4. The bow of the mighty is broken, And the weak are belted with strength. 5. Those who were full praise themselves for bread, And those who were hungry rest; Even the sterile gives birth seven times, And she who had many children is withered. 6. The Lord kills and he brings to life. He brings down to Hades and brings up again. 7. The Eternal impoverishes and enriches, He abases and elevates. 8. From the dust he lifts the poor, From the dunghill he raises the needy, To make them sit with the great. And he shares with them a throne of glory; For the LORD's are the pillars of the earth, and on them he has set the world. 9. He will guard the footsteps of his beloved ones. But the wicked will be annihilated in darkness; For man will not triumph by force. 10. The enemies of the Lord will tremble; From the heavens he will hurl his thunder upon them; The Lord will judge the ends of the earth. He will give power to his king, And he will raise up the strength of his anointed. 11. Elkanah went to his house at Ramah, and the child served the Lord before the priest Eli.

Let's remember:

After several years of mortification, lamentations, tears but also diligence, faith and perseverance before the face of God; Anne stepped out of her reserve and began a prayer of praise in recognition of God's deliverance. She exposed her heart filled with joy, and now empty of bitterness because it was filled by God, the benefactor of those who seek him. Anne came to display her appeased and satiated state of mind with a blessing from the throne of God; which she had long sought in fasts and prayers. This prayer of praise lays the foundations for a conquering future because Anne already plans to have several children, she who has only one to date. This is how praise can be an asset for the liberation of a person or a family. Praise can include a prayer of thanksgiving for things that are not yet acquired but that the eyes of our faith already see clearly. Anne had announced that she would give birth seven times when she had difficulty having her Samuel. A prayer of praise made with such projections challenges God to fulfill them because he feels uplifted and glorified. 1 Samuel 2:21. “When the Lord visited Anna, she became pregnant, and bore three sons and two daughters...”. Let us know how to touch the sensitivity of God and tickle his heart with prayers of praise which incense his greatness and his power before the unstable low divinities. The structure of a prayer of praise must leave room for the comparison of Yahweh with the false gods who inspire pride in the Peninna and who end up withering. Obviously it must be demonstrated that it is the Eternal who is God above the other divinities. Excellent Tuesday. Amen Alain Louz.-
