YESTERDAY AT BISHOP ABIOYE’S DAUGHTER’S WEDDING PEOPLE WERE TALKING ABOUT HOW THEY WATCHED THE CHICAGO MEETING FROM NIGERIA AND ALL OVER THE WORLD. I WAS DANCING TO GOD AND WHEN THE MC NOTICED MY EAGERNESS HE SURRENDERED THE MICROPHONE TO ME.
YOU CANNOT FEEL LOW AND FLY HIGH IN LIFE; WHATEVER WEIGHS YOU DOWN TIES YOU DOWN.
YOUR WORSHIP CAUSES YOUR POTENTIALS TO BE RELEASED AND THE DEPLOYMENT OF POTENTIALS IS THE ATTAINMENT OF EXCELLENCE.
IF YOU CANNOT PRAISE GOD, YOUR FAITH IS UNDER ATTACK.
-Pastor Paul Enenche at Dunamis International Gospel Centre on ‘PRAISE FOR EXCELLENCE’
1st Service, Glory Dome.
Lift your hands and worship Him.
Thank You Master, thank You Adonai. Wave your hands and give Him the praise, give Him the honour. It is the day the Lord has made and we shall rejoice and be glad in this day. Worship Him, honour Him, adore Him.
Father we love You; we honour You, we adore You, we magnify You. Thank You Master, in Jesus precious name.
Give the Lord a big hand of praise as you take your seat. God bless you!
We have come essentially today to praise God, to worship God, to honour Him and to adore Him; it is our Testimony and Thanksgiving Service and our month of Excellence for Release, Recovery and Replication.
I will speak very quickly on the charge:
PRAISE FOR EXCELLENCE
Our objective is to understand the connection between our praise and our excellence.
What is very clear is that, those who understand praise and worship excel in life. If you understand how to praise and worship God, you stand out in life; you don’t die under, you stand out.
Those who understand praise and worship, they rise to the top; they take the lead. We’re going to look at two examples in this service and our first example is:

  1. Abraham.

Abraham was a deep worshipper of God. In Genesis 17:3, Abraham fell on his face, that is a posture of worship while God talked with him. In Genesis 22:5, the Bible says, Abraham said unto his young men that he and the lad will go yonder and worship. That was the kind of person Abraham was.

He understood and valued worship. No wonder, nobody was bigger than Abraham in his generation. Nobody was higher, nobody stood out more
He excelled in animal husbandry, he was the first person to introduce the ranching system of farming as far as scripture is concerned.

  1. Joseph.
    Joseph was a man who understood the praise and the worship of God. Even though it was not stated directly how that he praise and worship God, but one thing we know was that; Joseph was a bundle of joy, a bundle of excitement. He carried what we call the joy of the Lord. When in Genesis 40:5-6, he was looking at the sadness of the butler and the baker in the prison; that was proof positive that he was a joy distributor, he was a joy transmitter, a joy carrier.
    Also seeing that the Lord was permanent with Joseph in Genesis 39:2 and Genesis 39:21, the Lord was with Joseph. We then know what makes the Lord to be with a person. In Psalm 22:3, the Bible says, the Lord inhabits the praises of His people. In Psalm 89:15, the Bible says, blessed is the people that know the joyful sound: they shall walk with the light of God’s countenance; God’s face will be upon them.

So we know that Joseph carried joy and that joy was probably a joyful sound as well and he commanded the presence of God, the Lord was with Joseph permanently.

The worship of God, the joy of the Lord that established the presence of God in Joseph’s life, because in Psalm 16:11, in His presence is fullness of joy and at His right hand there are pleasures for evermore. So, joy was literally a permanent feature of the life of Joseph that made God to dwell with him.

The outcome of that was that, Joseph was not less than anybody in the whole of the Egyptian empire; he excelled as a dreamer, a dream interpreter, a solution provider and as an administrator. He excelled in management; he was in charge; he was on top. He excelled in leadership. Nobody was bigger than him except Pharaoh and in fact, Pharaoh was just a figure-head.

What was it that made Joseph to stand out and stand up like that? – The joy of the Lord, the worship of the Lord, the praise of the Lord. You cannot feel low and fly high in life; it is not possible. Like we have said all the time, whatever weighs you down, ties you down.

To be weighed down is to be tied down. When you agree to be weighed down, you have agree to be tied down. To be weighed down is to be slow down. This young man took the highest place in the land at the frequency of praise, worship, joy and excitement.

WHAT DOES JOY, PRAISE AND WORSHIP DO REGARDING EXCELLENCE?

  1. The release of human potentials. Everyone who knows how to praise, how to worship, how to serve is one who will live to maximize life’s potential. Whatever is in you comes out because of praise and worship. Your worship causes the depth of you to be unleashed. In 1 Samuel 10:5, the prophetic that was inside Saul came out at the place of worship. That was why the greatest worshipper in the Old Testament was also the man with the most deployed potential, probably in the whole of the Bible – King David.
    So, your worship causes your potentials to be released and the deployment of potentials is the attainment of excellence (Proverbs 18:16).

By the time gifts and the graces you carry are maximally deployed, no devil keeps you down where you are not meant to be.

  • Somebody’s gifts and graces and giftings shall be released this morning!
  1. The release of divine inspiration and ideas.
  2. The release of supernatural strength.
    WHAT KIND OF WORSHIP OR PRAISE WILL PRODUCE THE RESULTS WE ARE TALKING ABOUT?
    John 4:23-24
    a). Worship must be spiritual. It must be spiritual; it must not be carnal. It must come from the depth of your spirituality; a depth of understanding, you know what you are doing.
    b). Worship must be sincere.

You are not trying to create any impression; that is, you are real, you are not fake. It doesn’t matter what anybody feels. There are people whose worship has been arrested because they just feel; “what will people think”. I don’t care what anybody thinks because what is moving you is different from what is moving me.

There are people who are too educated to praise God. I can praise God at two extremes; the extreme of dancing like somebody from another world and extreme of tears profusely as if somebody beat you. I can do both of them easily without looking at anybody’s face and irrespective of where I am per time.

There are those who are too careful about human opinions. What moves you determines what you can move. There are people who have never express any form of exuberance before God.

That is, people are worshipping and they are standing like standard bank. Whether in church or outside church, they don’t move and there are those who will have never expressed emotion before God, whether it is in church or inside their prayer closet,
nothing moves them. Even Jesus wept as powerful as He was.
I can tell you, the more spiritual you get, the more sincere your worship and this produces result and releases potentials, inspiration flows and strength comes. This morning, I want us to worship God. Look at the Worship and Wonders Night, they intensity; I preached in the night and prayed in the night with all my heart. If it was possible to catch devil physically so he can leave the people alone finally, that was how I felt. Spiritual torments, spirit husband, spirit wife; somebody is matured to be married and you tied her down, somebody is married for ten years, no child. What do you want? And God showed up; diverse encounters in diverse places translating into signs and wonders.
What about the eight hours in His presence – all manner of things we have seen in the recent few days; the Chicago meeting, I didn’t know people will watch it from all over the world. Where I went yesterday at Bishop Abioye daughter’s wedding, people were talking about it how they watched it and there again, I could not control myself in dancing. When the praise worshipper saw how eager I was, he surrendered the mic.
Hallelujah!
All these things that God has done and He’s still doing, I want you to praise Him from your heart this morning. If anybody is too gentle for you, leave where they are.
Stand up on your feet.
Somebody may say; “but nothing in my life has changed”. Yet you are alive, let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Give the Lord a shout of praise.
If the devil were strong enough, he would have killed you and if he has not been able to kill you, then there is something ahead of you. When I was a child, the devil almost killed me because he knew that there was something in front and he couldn’t kill me; I’m the one dealing with him now.

Let everything that has breath, praise the Lord. The fact that you are in an atmosphere like this where God is changing people’s lives and you are hearing; look at this lady who just testified, dog biting her, dog tormenting her, molesting her.

Do you know the meaning of that? Dogs sleeping with her in a dream. She was not a member of the Church yet when she had the first encounter. That is, despite her resistance, God still visited her at home. How much more you are? You are not resisting going to church like her, so every time you hear somebody’s testimony, it should confirm to you that nothing can stop your own from happening.
There are times we praise God for what He has done, there are other times we praise God for what we know He will do and no devil can stop it. Part of my thanksgiving is for the glories ahead; the things that are in front that I have not yet seen and I want you to do that this morning.

There are things in front of you that are as sure as the sun must set and rise and your praise is part of your faith. They believed and they sang His praise (Psalm 106:12).

If you cannot praise, your faith is under attack. If you are not able to rejoice, your faith is under attack. I saw some people commenting yesterday; “Oh Pastor, anywhere he finds himself, he’s dancing, jumping, praising. He’s always very happy”. Because my faith is intact so, I literally don’t need any devil’s encouragement because for as long as the earth remaineth, the Word of God must come to pass.

Are you ready this morning?

  • Celebrate your liberty; freedom, deliverance, breakthrough, the destruction of ancestral curses, generational curses, family curses, powers of darkness, powers of hell; celebrate your liberty, your change of story. Upon mount Zion, there shall be deliverance, there shall be holiness and the sons of Jacob shall possess their possessions. Some trust in chariots, others trust in horses: but we will remember the name of the Lord our God. They are brought down and fallen: but we are risen and stand upright. For the name of the Lord is a strong tower, the righteous run into it and they are safe. Give Him the shout of praise!!!
  • You will not die before your time; every agenda of the enemy to cut you short before your time is arrested now!
  • For somebody here, between now and your next birthday, God will give you your expectations. What you’ve been trusting God for, the change of story you are expecting, it shall be delivered into your hands!
  • Every arrow fired into your body from your village, where the arrow came from, it is returning back to hell!

ALTAR CALL.
