I want to share with you today an excerpt from the introduction of my book, WORSHIP: Are You Making a Sound?, because I believe it's the reminder God wants to share with you today:

"Did you know that sound waves can change matter?

Perform a quick online search and you can find videos of people manipulating matter, breaking glass, freezing water - all with sound waves.

How did God Himself create and mold matter in the Book of Genesis?

By using the sound of His voice.

Or did you know that the sounds of nature increase the productivity of the surrounding land?

There are studies that prove that the sounds of birds chirping and insects humming contribute to the growth and development of plants in the area.

No wonder we hear the birds singing the most at the beginning of Spring!

The birds are literally awakening the ground with their songs of praise.

Nature leads a revival, year after year, with its sound.

If sound waves can break glass at the right frequency, and if the songs of nature...

[PODCAST] Worship Without Limits

WORSHIP WITHOUT LIMITS

In this episode, I am sharing a Word that God gave me to share at a conference back in July under the theme, "Worship Without Limits."

How do we get there?

How do we get to a place where we can freely worship God with all that we have, in Spirit and in Truth, without worrying about the criticisms of others?

I thought "Worship Without Limits" was such a great theme and I think every single speaker that day mentioned one key: greater intimacy with Jesus!

So take a listen to today's new podcast episode and allow it to encourage you to take your worship to the next level.

After Moses and the Israelites crossed over the Red Sea, they worshiped the LORD with a new song:

'Then Moses and the children of Israel sang this song to the Lord , and spoke, saying: “I will sing to the Lord , For He has triumphed gloriously! The horse and its rider He has thrown into the sea! The Lord is my strength and song, And He has become my salvation; He is my God, and I will praise Him; My father’s God, and I will exalt Him. The Lord is a man of war; The Lord is His name. Pharaoh’s chariots and his army He has cast into the sea; His chosen captains also are drowned in the Red Sea. The depths have covered them; They sank to the bottom like a stone. “Your right hand, O Lord , has become glorious in power; Your right hand, O Lord , has dashed the enemy in pieces.'

Exodus 15:1-6

The presence of God was with the people of Israel and in His presence the army of the enemy was completely demolished. Cast into the sea and drowned at the bottom like a...

[PODCAST] WORSHIP: Summoning the Presence

WORSHIP: Summoning the Presence

I don't know about you, but I NEED the presence of God in my life on the REGULAR.

The moment I'm feeling distant, the pressure and worries start to arise.

I have learned, and I remind you today, that it is critical to maintain a posture of worship and praise.

We can't afford to forget to lift up our voice to the Father!

The enemy will try to distract you or keep you extra busy, because he knows the power that is in your sound.

When we worship, God is enthroned, His Presence is summoned to our location, and the enemy is defeated in Jesus' Name!

Hallelujah!

I think you're going to love today's podcast episode.

Take a listen and let it remind you that you have access to the presence of God and the key is in your mouth.

Today's reminder that worship is a spiritual weapon of warfare.

Last week, we discussed how worship enthrones God and dethrones everything else. (Read about it here, if you missed.)


So if we know that God inhabits our praise (Psalm 22:3), when we maintain an attitude of worship, Psalm 9:3 says our enemies will fall and perish at HIS PRESENCE.


"I will praise You, O Lord, with my whole heart; I will tell of all Your marvelous works. I will be glad and rejoice in You; I will sing praise to Your name, O Most High. When my enemies turn back, They shall fall and perish at Your presence."
Psalms 9:1-3


Do you see the correlation?


If my praise establishes the kingdom of God, right here in the midst of where I am releasing my worship, no attack of the enemy can prosper! 

My worship summons the presence of God to surround me and not only fill me with peace, but protect me from the adversary. 

I've said it before and I'll say it again...WORSHIP IS MY WARFARE!

Praise is a supernatural weapon.

This is truly how we...

Worship Enthrones God and Dethrones Everything Else.

worship Aug 24, 2021

We often say and know that God inhabits the praises of His people.

After all, it says so in Psalm 22:

"But You are holy, Enthroned in the praises of Israel. Our fathers trusted in You; They trusted, and You delivered them."

Psalms 22:3-4

But what does that really mean?

God is enthroned in the midst of our worship. When we lift up our authentic praise to the Father and exalt His Name above everything else, God's kingdom is established right where we are.

Jesus did instruct us to pray that way as well...

"In this manner, therefore, pray: Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven."

Matthew 6:9-10

Jesus desires for the the kingdom of God to be established on the earth...just like it is in heaven!

And how do we start?

Exalting the name of God: Hallowed be Your name.

You see when you and I make the decision to praise God, our worship enthrones God and dethrones everything else.

PODCAST SEASON 4: WORSHIP - Back to Basics

EPISODE 4: WORSHIP - Make a Sound or the Earth just might quake.  

Back in December, I had an epiphany.

As I was preparing for our online Bible study, I re-read the following passage:

"Then, as He was now drawing near the descent of the Mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works they had seen, saying: “ ‘Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord!’ Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!” And some of the Pharisees called to Him from the crowd, “Teacher, rebuke Your disciples.” But He answered and said to them, “I tell you that if these should keep silent, the stones would immediately cry out.”'

Luke 19:37-40

And then it hit me.

This thought just popped into my head:

Could the rise in the number of earthquakes be the rocks crying out?!

I immediately asked the Holy Spirit to...

EPISODE 3: WORSHIP - Release a Confident Sound

1 Corinthians 14:8 says,

"For if the trumpet makes an uncertain sound, who will prepare for battle?"

Join me in this podcast episode to discuss the Biblical importance of a trumpet sound and how it was used as a preparation step for battle. Not only that, but the delivery of the sound itself was critically important.

If the sound was uncertain or weak, no one would prepare for the battle ahead.

In our daily lives, we need to proclaim God's truth and shout with a loud voice His name with complete confidence, truly believing that He is able to help us through any battle or season of life.

Throughout this episode, we'll be reading from:

  • Numbers 10
  • Joshua 6
  • Judges 7

Listen in and then go out there and make a confident sound of worship and praise to our mighty God who is worthy of it!
