"Let the peoples praise You, O God; let all the peoples praise You. Then the earth shall yield her increase; God, our own God, shall bless us." Psalms 67: 5-6 (NKJV)
Bible Readings: Numbers 17: 8, John 6: 11-12, John 11: 41.
Praise is a weapon of your achievement. It is the tool needed to get your achievement. Praise means Yaddah. Which means to shout, to confess the name of God, to lift up your hands.
Mystery of Yaddah (lifting up of hands): Spiritual weapon that signifies an offensive and defensive weapon.An instrument for warfare for God to use. Your hands are the weapons God is interested in using. Once you lift up your hands, what is shot against you, is shot away from you.
When ever you lift up your hands, it means you are shooting arrows at your enemy. It means you are being specific. You are shooting at where your enemies are. You don’t need to see the arrow going, all you need is the testimony. Once you can lift your hand up, it means you are bound to increase. Every time there is going to be an increase, the enemy tries to short it.
When you can lift your hands, then you can yield, bring forth. Everything that you give thanks for, multiplies. If you can give thanks, every dead thing would come back to life. Lifting up your hand signifies victory.
