It is time to praise Him

Listen on 05/04 Podcast

Memory Verse: And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out. Luke 19:40 KJV

You have heard that your victory is in your praise. Maybe you have been looking for a blessing. The enemy has kept his imps murmuring and complaining, telling you that you need to give up on God's program because people don't want to help you get it done. Remember that nobody can stop God's program. If I or you and anyone turn away, God will raise up a witness instead. The Bible says if these should hold their peace, the very rocks [stones] would cry out (Luke 19:40).

Tell somebody, "I will not let a rock or a tree or a bird cry out for me!"

Rather than standing still to see the salvation of the Lord, the enemy wants you to tuck tail and run. But the Lord wants you to put on your holy armour and stand (Ephesians 6:13).

The enemy wants you to drown out the voice of praise with misery. But I declare, there is a sound of rejoicing in the North. There is a sound of praise from every hill and valley. You don't need to focus on everything that got you down; just get up, and think on whatsoever things are pure and of a good report (Philippians 4:8). Get up; and call your brother; call your sister; tell them to be encouraged. Stop looking at yourself only. Encourage somebody else. Pray for somebody else.

God knows what you need. He knew it when you asked him ten minutes ago, and yesterday and last week and before you ever fixed your lips to make your petition. God wants to hear the voice of your praise above all other sounds you make. So open your mouth and start praising Him!

And the God of Elijah said, if I be lifted up, I will draw all men unto me (John 12:32). So open your mouth, and give God your praise, because as the songs said, you are next in line for a miracle; and the battle is not yours; and the victory is in your praise!

When the people of God cry out for deliverance, Satan thinks he has gotten away with something because God has not brought the evil to bear against him immediately. Do not fret. God has appointed that old serpent for destruction. And all of his works shall come to naught. Do not get discouraged, looking at the enemy's prosperity. His time is short. It is time for you to get your praise on. Blow the trumpet in Zion because the King of Glory is Here!

CHORUS (00:11)
If you hold your peace the rocks will cry out loud.
If you hold your peace the trees will clap their hands.
If you hold your peace the birds sing melodies.
I won't let a rock, a tree, or a bird cry out for me!
It's time to praise Him.

BRIDGE (2x) (00:33)
Throw your hands up.
Everybody in the Lord's house stand up.
If you need a blessing you can reach up.
It's time. It's time. It's time. It's time to praise Him.

CHORUS (00:55) VERSE 1 (2x) (01:17)
I won't be ashamed.
If I need a blessing I'll call His Name.
Saying, Lord, I just want to praise you.
It's time. It's time. It's time.
It's time to praise Him.

CHORUS (01:38) BRIDGE 2 (4x) (02:01)

I put my hands hands up.
Everybody in the Lord's house stands up.
Cause I need a blessing and I reach up.
It's time. My time. My time. My time to praise Him.

CHORUS (02:45) FADE (x4) (03:07)
It's time to praise Him
It's time to praise Him
It's time to praise Him
It's time. It's time.
It's time. It's time.
It's time to praise Him!
