“Now the Philistines gathered together their armies to battle, and were gathered together at Shochoh, which belongeth to Judah...” (1 Samuel 17: 1). The battle between Israel and Philistines took place in Shochoh which belonged to Judah. David later became the arrow head of Israel’s victory. He was from the tribe of Judah, and he led Israel to win a battle in the territory of Judah. Judah means praise. So David's nativity was ‘Praise’, and he led and won the battle that came against the place of praise.

Friend, if you must win the battles that come to steal your praise, be a person of consistent praise. No matter what happens, never allow the praises to God to cease from your lips. No matter how disappointed or disillusioned you are, don’t allow whatever is happening to you to stop you from praising God as you should. Don’t allow your challenges to steal your praise. Don’t stop praising.

The man who defeated Goliath was a native of ‘Praise’. If you insist on praising God, you will defeat the enemies of your destiny, and surmount the opposition against your destiny. If you stay in your praise mode despite all that the devil does to bring you down, he will never be able to bring you down. If you keep praising, you keep winning.

Make praise your lifestyle. Praise and sing praises to God wherever you are. Praise Him for who He is; praise Him for the things He does in your life; praise Him for the things He will yet do in your life and destiny; praise God until someone thinks you are going overboard to do it. Praise God until the enemy gets offended by your praise.

Remember, David was a native of ‘Praise’ and he also became the arrow head of victory. Stay within the zone of praise, and you will be a candidate of endless victory.

Declare With Me: Nothing will steal my praise in 2018 and beyond, in Jesus’ name!
