PRAISE HIM - The Victory You Have In God Over Your Enemy

God Wants Us To Be Victors,
Not Victims ... To Overcome,
Not To Be Overwhelmed
William Arthur Ward

Further to my last few blog posts on the power of praise (Silencing The Enemy, The Enemy Has Been Defeated & Praise - Our Weapon In Spiritual Warfare), may these scriptures enlighten and reinforce the position we already have in Christ when we praise Him:

(an extract from Praise Him by Vivien Hibbert)

A wise assessment of our struggles will always include this glorious fact: Almighty God fights on behalf of those who hearts are His. When we look at a problem with a sense of defeat, we are not wise to the reality of God's power or His promise. We must always know who holds victory in His hand, and we must never loose heart - Worship The King by Chris Tiegreen

Have a victorious week! (Romans 8:37)
