                       SHOUT OF TRIUMPH
 

praise_the_lord                      


“O Clap your hands, all ye people; shout unto God with the voice of triumph.”


Psalms 47:1
(KJV)


What is the voice of triumph? The voice of triumph can be heard by a soldier after they have defeated an enemy. The voice of triumph is a loud cheer that encourages the winning side and totally demoralizes any enemy that is left.


God already knows what is going to happen in your life. HE knows how HE is going to guide you and direct you. HE knows how you are going to see victory over the trial that you currently face.


Because of who God is, HE has given you a different command. HE has told you not to worry about tomorrow. However, tomorrow has a way of stirring up worry in your sinful life. God does not want you to focus on the trial so HE has commanded you instead of focusing on the storm, to start focusing on God and HIS Almighty power. God commands you to praise HIM. HE desires that you praise HIM prior to your seeing exactly how HE is going to save you. HE desires that you praise HIM so that instead of focusing on the storm you focus on the Deliverer.


When you clap your hands to God and shout a shout of victory prior to seeing the victory, you are focusing your attention to God and declaring God’s working in your life. You force yourself to put your attention exactly where God desires it to be: on HIM. Focusing your attention on God does not give you the time to worry about your problems.


When you force yourself to make a shout of victory prior to seeing the victory, God is able to do a new work in your heart. You are setting yourself up for success. God is able to show HIMSELF strong in your life because HE knows that you are not going to be able to take credit for the things that HE has done for you. God works mightily in those whom HE knows will give HIM the praise. When you take the time to praise HIM for HIS direction, protection, and provision prior to actually seeing the victory, HE is ensured that you will give HIM the glory due HIS name.


God does not just want you to praise HIM when things go well. God desires to hear your praises in the midst of the storm. HE does not just want to hear your praises, but HE wants to hear your loud praises; HE desires to hear the praise of one who knows that God is able to do the impossible and that HE will be doing the impossible through you.


When you praise God with a shout of victory before the victory is won, you are demonstrating your faith. You are showing God and the whole world that you trust in HIM and that you have seen how HE has delivered, directed, and protected you in the past and that you know HE is going to do so in the future. It takes faith in God to praise God knowing that HE will deliver you from it.


It also takes virtue to praise God with a shout of victory. Virtue is praising God for those things that are of a good report. When you praise God before you see the victory, God can see that you are filling your mind with the things of God. God knows that you are different because HE now has control of your mind and heart. God loves to hear HIS praises when you see the victory, but HE loves it so much more when you take the time to exalt HIS Holy name prior to seeing exactly how HE is going to do it.

Please say this Prayer of Faith if you want or need more of God in your life:
Dear Heavenly Father,
I repent and come before you just as I am, with all my sins and faults. I confess Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. I believe in my heart that you sent your Son, Jesus Christ to die on the cross for me and on the third day you raised him from the dead. I thank you Lord, for receiving me now, forgiving me, healing me, protecting me, making my life brand new, and for writing my name in the book of life.
In the powerful name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
