We have been going over some Hebrew words for praise. Do you remember some of them? Let’s Review:
Yadah (ya-dah) means to willfully throw your hands up to praise with power.
Todah (to-da’), we lift our hands, as a sacrificial offering for future things that are unseen.
Halal (ha-lal) means to celebrate, or act clamorously foolish in your praise.
Tehillah (teh-hil-la’), we sing a new song unto the Lord – in the gift of tongues as well.
Ruwa (ru-ah) means to give your best shout, like an alarming trumpet – Glory!
Shabach (sha-bakh’), shouting, means to address in a L O U D tone and glorifying the Lord
Taqa’ (tä—kah’), we clap our hands in applaud; rejoicing
Alaz (al-az) means “to rejoice, to exult, to jump for joy”.
Karar (Ka –rar’) means “to dance and whirl about”.
Machowl (ma’khole’) means “a round dance, like whirling particles, as sand)”.
Mechowlah (mek-o-la’) means “a dance:-company dances” with more than one person.
Pazaz (pa-zaz) means “to leap, to spring, to bound, be agile – made strong, be supple as if separating the limbs, or flee as a gazelle.
These words will help you express your praise. Do you know that praise is a powerful weapon, and can shape your destiny?
“Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.” – Proverbs 18:21
What have you been saying about yourself and your current situation? Have you been blessing or cursing? God has set before you this day the power of praise – the blessing, or the power of fear – the cursing. Choose today!
You spend too much time worrying, complaining, and living in fear; where satan would love for you to stay in that state, but God made available for all to choose life (Deuteronomy 30:19)! It’s your decision, and no one can make that decision for you. So what are you choosing today? Life of praise, I hope!
I have a great story that you can find in the book called “Praise Avenue” by Don Gossett. If you are here for the first time. I have available for you the first chapter in this book if you would like to read it, click here. Mr. Gossett tells of a couple named Mr. & Mrs. Perry Cowger, and how they found that praise is the key to everything.
“Mr.& Mrs. Perry Cowger of Burnaby, British Columbia, were on a holiday north of Fort St. John, B.C.
While traveling many miles from where anyone lived, they stopped beside a river for a picnic. When they were ready to continue their journey, they could not find their car keys. In desperation, they searched all over the car and around the area where they had had their picnic. But their search was fruitless.
Brother Cowger shares their dilemma: “We had looked everywhere possible. No keys were to be found! We prayed fervently, but it seemed there was no answer to our prayers.”
Suddenly Mrs. Cowger thought of a possible solution for their problem. “Brother Gossett tells us to ‘praise the Lord anyhow!’” she stated. “Let’s praise the Lord right here in these desperate circumstances and see what happens.”
Brother and Sister Cowger lifted their hands and voices and praised the Lord right out there in their place of isolation, many miles from anyone and anywhere.
Brother Cowger testifies, “When we began to praise the Lord, we glanced at a certain spot on the ground, and there were the keys!”
Beloved, when you begin to praise the Lord, you have the keys. You have the keys to every spiritual blessing in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. You have the keys to divine healing and health. You have the keys to God’s deliverance.”
And that’s Praise. Praise is in your mouth – your tongue!
The tongue is to speak forth a prophecy on a daily basis. It will speak life or death. The blessing and the cursing!
If you do not know what to say, don’t say anything until you start speaking the Word of God into your life (Proverbs 15:4). The tongue is to express the glory and the power of God. He has given this weapon to you for self-defense. That’s why I said to you before that “Praise is a Weapon, Use it”!
God said to you, “speak… and say… in faith… according to the Word.” You are to speak out in faith what you want to come to pass, just like Him. “Light be!” and light was (Genesis 1:3). Amen.
Let’s read some scriptures about the tongue:
If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion is vain.
For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile:
Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile.
And my tongue shall speak of thy righteousness and of thy praise all the day long.
The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom, and his tongue talketh of judgment.
I said, I will take heed to my ways, that I sin not with my tongue: I will keep my mouth with a bridle, while the wicked is before me.
My heart was hot within me, while I was musing the fire burned: then spake I with my tongue,
My heart is inditing a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the king: my tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
My tongue shall speak of thy word: for all thy commandments are righteousness.
These are only a few of the scriptures available for study. As you can see, the tongue plays an important part in your destiny. Yesterday I asked you to check your motive before praising and worshipping the Lord. Now, I’m asking you to keep your tongue, and praise!
Here is something that I have posted up in my house:

You mouth determines your success or failure in life. What are you going to choose? You are the only one that can be the pilot of your life; which direction will you take?
Praise is the key to the presence of God. It is essential to the knowledge and purpose of His will, but you must speak life! Open up your mouth and say God’s will for your life.
Praise is in your mouth – invite Him in!
Please listen and do what God is calling for you to do – PRAISE HIM!
Ooh Glory to His Name!
He is worthy.
Until next time, continue to be blessed and Praise the Lord!
