DAILY DEVOTIONAL BY DR PAUL ENENCHE
TUESDAY 8TH FEBRUARY, 2022.
TOPIC: PRAISE- A KEY TO INCREASE AND MULTIPLICATION
SCRIPTURE: Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee. Then shall the earth yield her increase; and God, even our own God, shall bless us. Psalms 67:5-6.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Praise is key to increase. Nothing can decrease around the life of a worshipper of God.
Praise has been confirmed to be a major key to increase and multiplication (Psalms 67:5-6). Nothing can decrease around the life of a worshipper of God. This is because when people praise God, the earth yields her increase.
To yield means to surrender or give up. That means praise carries a force that makes everything that is yours to be handed to you by all means. The limit of your praise is the limit of your increase; the limit of your praise is the limit of your rise.
In the Book of John Chapter 6, when Jesus was confronted with feeding a crowd of five thousand men beside women and children with 5 loaves of bread and 2 fishes, He gave thanks to God. He lifted up His eyes to Heaven, blessed the food, gave thanks to God and it multiplied. This means, if you want anything in your life to multiply, the key is appreciation, thanksgiving or praise.
The favour and resources of your life can move to another level of increase by the power of praise and appreciation (Acts 2:47).
When the disciples praised God, they had favour with all men and there was the addition of souls to the church. This is what praise can do.
This means, the limit of your praise is the limit of your favour. When you praise God, the favour on your life multiplies. It is not possible to praise God and not have favour with both God and men. You cannot be locked up in misfortune, disfavour and rejection if you are a genuine worshipper of God.
REMEMBER THIS: Praise is key to increase. Nothing can decrease around the life of a worshipper of God.
1. Make up your mind to praise God continually and unconditionally.
2. Refuse to give room to depression and discouragement.
PRAYER: Lord, I receive the garment of praise to deal with the spirit of heaviness. Deliver me from depression, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: To live a life of praise and worship is to access Divine preservation. Culled from “15 KINGDOM STRATEGIES FOR SURVIVAL” by Dr Paul Enenche.
DAILY BIBLE READING: Deuteronomy 27-30.
REFLECTION: Praise activates the Presence of God. Psalm 22:3. The Presence of God attracts the flow of good. Nothing good can ever be lacking where God is. You want the increase of good around your life? Live in praise.
PROPHETIC WORD/DECLARATION: As you focus on praise in this season, may your resources and supplies explode in Jesus’ Name.
