SO GOD ALSO HAS A PROFILE…
Confront your oppositions with praise to God. That was what David did against Goliath.
I used to work with a man who would tell me not to talk about God whenever we discussed official matters. Mysteriously, his company has crashed today; and the last time I heard of him, he was having a mental problem.
Anytime you acknowledge the greatness of God in the presence of an opposition, God takes praise for it. And when God takes praise, oppositions take a bow.
David applied this principle when he said to Goliath "you have come to me with a sword, spear, and a shield; but I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied".
Praise is not just about singing and dancing to God, it is also a display of confidence in God, even in the presence of your challenges.
Praise is God's profile; Goliath introduced himself to David, and David did not hesitate to introduce his God to him. Just like David, when challenges introduce themselves to you, you should also introduce your God to them. That is praise! And God begins to work the moment He is introduced.
In John 11:39-40, Jesus was faced with Lazarus who had been dead for four days. Martha thought nothing could happen, but Jesus gave His boast in God by saying "if you believe, you will see the glory of God". And after He gave thanks, Lazarus came back to life.
Let me conclude with this; any act that acknowledges the greatness of God is praise. When your oppositions are showing you the list of challenges you have, don't hesitate to show the profile of your God to them. May God give us understanding!
God bless you, I love you, and don't forget to share!
