2 Chronicles 20:1-23
Every day gives you opportunity to praise God, whether they seem minute or mighty. Through praise, your burdens don’t seem so heavy and your life becomes a sweet fragrance to those around you. Praise is the language of faith. However, it is more a demonstration of faith when you praise God before you have the solution. Therefore, you must never lose your praise because of what you are passing through.
One of the greatest weapon you have as a child of God is your praise, the devil knows this to be true and will do everything possible to silence you. Did you know that there is only one qualification to be a Praiser? Is that you have breath. It doesn’t matter what you are going through. It doesn’t matter what you have or what you may not have. You have the right to praise God. I know how it feels to question life and the hurdles that come with it. I know how it feels to wonder if the Lord hears your prayers. I know how it feels to be betrayed by friends and even family members. These are experiences many people cannot help you overcome. These are the pains that the love and power of God must help you through. My friend, in spite of what you experience in life, never lose your praise. Praise as a form of social interaction expresses recognition, reassurance or admiration. Praise is expressed verbally as well as by body language. It is the act of expressing approval or admiration; commendation; laudation. It is the offering of grateful homage in words or song, as an act of worship a hymn of praise to God. Praise is the highest work carried out by God’s children. You need to realize that God’s throne is the highest point in the entire universe, and so the praises that we lift to Him actually reaches the highest point that is the throne of God. You should not only pray to God but also learn to praise God, when life has become a struggle, when you are afflicted by one thing after the other. I want you to know that life is painful anyone who says otherwise is selling something to you that you really cannot afford to buy. Life is a struggle, not just a struggle it is a daily struggle. I believe that some of us, have lost some things. Some of us have lost friends, love ones, father, mother, homes, cars, money, wife, husband, children, close relatives and relationships.
The lost of anything can be painful, overwhelming, and overbearing. Losing something or someone has caused many people to go into what is known as clinical depression. Losing something or someone has even caused some of us to question God. It has made us wonder, does He really care? There is somebody here today that has lost something, maybe a job that you have worked on for many years. It is not because you have done anything wrong, it is just that life can throw a curve at us sometimes.

Satan will constantly remind you of the things you have done, the things you’ve said; and the places you’ve been that was against God’s will. He will use all these circumstances in order to get you to condemn yourself. However, remember that whatever is happening in your life, no matter how gloomy or discouraged you may feel, even when you are faced with what feels like the silenced of God you must never lose your praise.
