YOUR PRAISE AND YOUR HEALTH (1-3) – Dr. Paul Enenche

ANCHOR SCRIPTURE(S): ACTS 10:38; PSALM 104:33

SERVICE OBJECTIVE(S): Understanding the connection between the praise/worship life of a person and their health

It is very important to know that praiseful people are healthy people
Apart from the fact praise honours God, praise also prolongs life (Ps. 150:6)
God supplies breath/life to those who supply Him praise (Ps. 150:6)
It is proof-positive that praise affects both life and health (Ps. 150:6)
If you will praise and worship God, you won’t need to beg Him to cause you to be alive (Ps. 119:175)
If I supply God praise, He supplies me life. (Ps. 119:175)
If I am determined to give God praise, God is determined to give me life. (Isa. 43:21)
The release of my praise is the release of my health from His countenance (Ps. 42:11)

HOW DOES PRAISE CONTRIBUTE TO LIFE/HEALTH?

  1. Praise establishes the Presence of God in the life of the praiser (Ps. 22:3; 89:15; Mark 2:1-3; Acts 10:38; Luke 6:19)
    God lives in praise; praise is the residential address of God
    You can’t miss the presence of God around the life of a genuine praiser/worshipper
    WHAT IS THE IMPLICATION OF THE PRESENCE OF GOD?
    1a. If God is present, He will heal (Mark 2:1-3; Acts 10:38)
    1b. The Presence of God flows with healing virtue (Luke 6:19)
    If you will saturate your home with worship, you will experience healing.
  2. Praise excuses the presence of the enemy from the life of the praiser (1Sam. 16:23; Ps. 32:7; Ps. 89:15; John 1:5)
    If another person’s worship can bring deliverance, how much more your own worship?
    HOW DOES PRAISE CHECK OUT EVIL SPIRITS?
    2a. Praise carries or transmits deliverance power (Ps. 32:7)
    2b. Praise activates the light of God’s countenance and that dissolves darkness (Ps. 89:15; John 1:5)
    Praise turns on light and light checks out darkness
  3. Praise activates strength in the life of the praiser (Neh. 8:10b; Hab. 3:18-19; Ps. 28:7; 118:14; Deut. 34:7; Josh. 14:10-11; Prov. 24:10)
    There is a connection between praise and strength; praiseful people are strong people
    WHAT IS THE CONNECTION BETWEEN STRENGTH AND HEALTH?
    3a. Strength is the bedrock of health (Deut. 34:7; Josh. 14:10-11)
    Praise supplies strength and strength undergirds health
    WHAT IS THE CONNECTION BETWEEN STRENGTH AND HEALTH?
    3b. Strength guarantees victory in conflict (Prov. 24:10)
    If your strength is not small, there is nothing the devil beings against you that can floor you

CONCLUSION:

  1. Whatever attacks your praise attacks your health (Ps. 42:5, 11)
  2. Whatever attacks your praise attacks your life (1Cor. 10:10)
    When your praise life begins to drop, the quality of your life begins to drop.

PRAYER
Father, thank You for Your Word to us today, we give You all the praise and glory, in Jesus’ Name.
