Worship Pulls You Into Victory

Acts 16:25–26 (NKJV)
But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them. Suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone’s chains were loosed.

Paul and Silas went to Phillipi to preach the gospel after Paul had a vision in which he saw a man saying to him, "Come over to Macedonia to help us." As they were there ministering the gospel Paul cast a demon out of woman who was a fortune teller and it caused her masters to become angry and they took Paul and Silas to the magistrates who found them to be guilty of teaching things that were not lawful. They were beaten with rods and thrown into the prison where they were locked up in stocks.

When there was nothing left to do physically, Paul and Silas began to worship. As they took a step into worship they were pulled into victory.

The earth quaked and every cell door in the jail was opened. Every prisoner was loosed. Freedom came as they worshipped the Lord.

Paul was so connected to the plan and purpose of the Lord that he and Silas did not run and flee the scene in an attempt to save their own lives. They stayed in the jail and ministered the gospel to the jailer and his family. Everyone that heard the gospel became free that night and their victory came as a result of the power of worship.

When you are tempted to get discouraged and give up, begin to worship the Lord. Worship brings the power of the Lord on the scene and produces breakthrough. Hook up to the power of worship, don't let go of it and it will pull you into victory every time.

Begin today by counting how many times that the Lord has brought you through a difficulty. Write it out and celebrate His faithfulness.

I encourage myself in the Lord. I look to Him. I am celebrating the faithfulness of God today and rehearsing the times that He has brought me through. Victory is mine today because I serve a victorious God. He makes a way where it seems that there is not a way.

"Lord, You are my victory. I worship You today because of Your faithfulness. You are so faithful to me and I thank You for bringing me through each and every challenge. My heart is set on You and practice Your presence today. Those around me will see the salvation of Lord. This is my day of victory. In Jesus Name."
