God heal me in Jesus Name! Father provide for me in Jesus Name. – We have all prayed these prayers and stood on the Word of God. However, first we must worship our Heavenly Father before we expect Him to do anything for us! Worship absolutely must come first – THEN we have a right to ask. In Matthew 4:10-11 Jesus was speaking to Satan and He said “ Get thee hence, Satan; for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord, thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him.”
Did you see it? “thou shalt worship the Lord, thy God…..Then the devil leaveth him…” Jesus gave us a key and an example. Worship God first; then all things that is not from God will leave.
Sickness, disease, death, destruction, conflict, lack, anything that does not resemble God or heaven is NOT from God. James 1:17 says “Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” So God ONLY sends good gifts and if it is not good then it is not from your Heavenly Father and you have the right and the authority from Jesus Christ himself to demand it out of your life! But first, we must worship and praise him.
Every day when we wake up, words of worship and praise should come out of our mouths. Every day as we go about our day, words of worship and praise should come out of our mouths. Every evening when we lie down to go to sleep words of worship and praise should come out of our mouths. Then as we do this every day and the devil shows up in your life – the Lord Jesus Christ himself will be there ready, willing, and able! Psalm 22:3 tells us God inhabits the praises of his people. The word “inhabit’ means “to live in a place.” As we praise and worship our God, He – God Himself, comes to live in the place we are. In our homes, our offices, our churches, our ministries, our schools. Wherever we are, wherever we worship, He comes and inhabits!
