THE PRAISE DIMENSION
Nehemiah 4:18 “For the builders every one had his sword girded by his side, and so builded And he that sounded the trumpet was by me.”
Nehemiah armed his men with the sword which they girded by their sides. He however didn’t stop there, he kept a man by his side who had a trumpet.
Nehemiah made sure that apart from sword, he had the trumpet as well. The trumpet is primarily an instrument of music.
Psalms 150:3 “Praise him with the sound of the trumpet: praise him with the psaltery and harp.”
He was not just ready to speak the word, he was prepared to make a joyful sound as well. This man rolled out some dangerous weapons that always bring God to the scene.
Psalms 47:5 “God is gone up with a shout, the LORD with the sound of a trumpet.”
He sure knows how to invite God to fight and win battles for him. Beloved, I know you are a prayer warrior and very skillful with your sword which is the word of God but another weapon the enemy cannot resist is that of praise. A man that knows how to praise God will always have God on his side. Why?
Psalms 22:3 “But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.”
God’s natural habitat is an atmosphere of praise. Once you create such an atmosphere, God doesn’t ask questions, he just shows up! And you must know that anywhere He shows up He does the needful.
God cannot show up where there is sickness and not bring healing. He cannot show up where there is poverty and not bring wealth. He cannot show up where there is confusion and not bring clarity.
Hear what Nehemiah said:
Nehemiah 4:20 “In what place therefore ye hear the sound of the trumpet, resort ye thither unto us: our God shall fight for us.”
He was so sure that in any place the trumpet was blown, God will come down and practically fight for them.
I want you to have this mindset as well, no matter what you’re going through, if can just put yourself together and blow the trumpet by praising God, He will definitely show up!
