POWER OF WORSHIP
A short encouraging word on the power of worship, there are times when we go through dry patches in those seasons we need to draw upon the Lord in different ways such as prayer, word, one of these ways is also worship the bible says that the joy of the Lord is my strength. Neh 8:10.
Worship becomes our joy because it cause the atmosphere to change, shift and move into the direction of the Lord and heaven. Worship began and begins in heaven to be able to break down evil strongholds and bring the wonderful heavenly atmosphere down praise and worship is the master key.
When we worship we lose sight of our self and situations of life no matter how difficult and see God only, every flesh barrier is broken and we align with heaven and the glory falls, we become aware of God and the worship becomes all about Him at that point miracles begin to happen naturally and spiritually. Gods glory will flow in the midst of his people, little becomes much and nothing becomes something, Revelation begins in the glory, mind set changes in his presence, bodies are healed, we begin to see clearly all round. Now God can move and speak life through us to change every circumstance. Remember that every time we worship we inhale heaven and exhale magnificent changes, blessings and transformation in every area of our life and world.
The power of worship breaks us through and tears down the enemies camp allowing the Lord to do the impossible when principalities and powers are in an effected area call upon the worshippers to go forth with praise and worship and begin to tear down the barriers in that effected area and see God work wonders coupled with prayer. The same to get rid of the heavy clouds that surround us with trouble, pain and situations praise your way through breaking the chains of discouragement and silencing the dark voices and lies that keep us trapped. Victory is in our praise.
July is the seventh month of the year month of perfection, completion, victory and grace. Worship Him completely and totally from your heart and see Him surprise you in this new season...

First understanding of having a heart to give before we receive.
Give and it shall be given unto you good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again. Luke 6:38
What is this verse saying to us, if you extend your hand and heart to God and others the Lord will fill your cup until it overflows and also will people as your give out whether large or small the same will be measured back to you. In the bible days when they wore robes the "bosom" was a fold of the robe pulled out above the girdle to form a pocket indicating that your pockets will be pressed down filled to overflowing.
Often when sowing people give with a heavy heart or begrudging spirit because they feel that they are forced to give, wrong motive if the Lord has placed upon your heart to give in whatever capacity but especially financially do it unto Him as a form of worship, honouring him and him alone. Financial giving is an act of worship from the heart to say thank you to the Lord before the breakthrough and after the breakthrough.
God supplied in Phil 4 :11-19 because the people honoured Paul and gave sacrificially to meet the needs of others. That is why Paul could not but break forth and declare now unto our God and father be glory forever and ever Amen.
Putting God first causes us to burst with new wine, this is the season of fresh new wine the old has passed and the new is here please do not miss out. The bible tells us not to put new wine into old wineskins for the wineskins will break and spill all is ruined, but to put new wine into new wineskins and both are then preserved. Preserve means to: protect, last, keep alive, safe from injury and harm or destruction well that speaks for it self.
The Lord has shown how he provides miraculously when we put him first:
Manna for 40 years in the dessert, shoes and clothes grew with them Ex 16:35
Ask the Lord for the west winds of replenishment to flow, the north winds of abundance to flow, the south winds of restoration to flow and east winds of the supernatural to flow in, over, through and upon your life as you put him first place and see the miraculous begin to floodgate your entire life. Start the praising from now He is not a man that he should lie. Give and it will come back to you pressed down shaken together and running over. Bless you all.
