Thought for Today: Worship The Lord with Songs

Then Jonah prayed unto the Lord his God out of the fish’s belly (Jonah 2:1).
A young lady had been sick for several years and had been given up to die. In that state, sick and in pains, she was carried to a crusade. During the time of worship, she joined in and had a wonderful time, ignoring her pains. She looked away from her pains and sickness unto God. Suddenly, as she sang and worshipped, she noticed her hands that hadn’t moved for years were lifted up. Then it dawned on her that she’d been healed of her disease. Overwhelmed with joy, she gave her testimony in tears. Hallelujah!
If you desire a miracle in your situation, then you have to take your attention away from the challenge you’re facing and worship the Lord with your songs and prayers. The Bible says Jonah prayed to the Lord out of the fish’s belly (Jonah 2:1). Right in the midst of trouble Jonah still prayed unto the Lord. He forgot about his situation and prayed. When you study the content of His prayer, you’ll discover it was all of worship and thanksgiving (Jonah 2:9). As he worshipped and thanked the Lord from the fish’s belly “The Lord spake unto the fish, and it vomited out Jonah upon the dry land” (Jonah 2:10). What a mighty deliverance! What of Paul and Silas? The Bible says that, “And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them. And suddenly there was a great earthquake…and immediately all the doors were opened and every one’s bands were loosed” (Acts 16:25-26). I see sudden miracles and earth-shaking testimonies happening in your life this month as you worship the Lord with your songs!
Solutions come when you worship the Lord in the midst of your trouble. The Lord Jesus didn’t respond to the woman whose daughter was vexed with an evil spirit until she worshipped Him (Matthew 15:22-28). Someone has rightly said, “Those who look at the sun don’t see the shadows.” How true! So learn to subdue your pains, disease or financial condition and worship the Lord instead. Love Him with all your heart for He’s good and real; more real than whatever situation you’re going through. Finally, when you sing this month, do it with revelation. When you worship the God who raises the dead for instance, every situation that looked dead suddenly is vitalized with divine energy! Glory to God!
I am eager to hear from you because I can already see that this month for you all around the world is a month of mighty deliverances and unimaginable miracles. So, take advantage of this platform to share them with us. God bless you!
