I recently had a young girl ask me how I make it through my days and my answer was simple. Praise! You may be looking at your situation right now and think no no no that can't be it. That Jo, you don't know my circumstances, giving God praise won't fix my mess. Luke 1:37 tells us, For with God nothing is or ever shall be impossible. Did you catch that word "nothing"!? God's nothing, means nothing. When you praise through a storm miracles will happen. Do you trust God? Do you believe His word, that we have the victory every time? Shout this morning, shout because you know your going to win, your going to overcome. Expect God to show up in your situation. Great victory is always accompanied by great praise. Praise equals heavenly results in your life. Our praise is a weapon! It is a weapon because it causes Gods presence to fill your life. 

'Lord, I will exalt you and lift you high, for you have lifted me up on high! Over all my boasting, 
gloating enemies, you made me to triumph. O Lord, my healing God, I cried out for a miracle and 
you healed me! You brought me back from the brink of death, from the depths below. Now here I am, alive and well, fully restored! O sing and make melody, you steadfast lovers of God. Give thanks to 
him every time you reflect on his holiness! I’ve learned that his anger lasts for a moment, but his 
loving favor lasts a lifetime! We may weep through the night, but at daybreak it will turn into shouts of ecstatic joy. I remember boasting, “I’ve got it made! Nothing can stop me now! I’m God’s favored one; he’s made me steady as a mountain!” But then suddenly, you hid your face from me. I was panic-stricken and became depressed. Still I cried out to you, Lord God. I shouted out for mercy, saying, “What would you gain in my death, if I were to go down to the depths of darkness? Will a grave sing your song? How could death’s dust declare your faithfulness?” So hear me now, Lord; show me your famous mercy. O God, be my Savior and rescue me! Then he broke through and transformed all my wailing into a whirling dance of ecstatic praise! He has torn the veil and lifted from me the sad heaviness of mourning. He wrapped me in the glory garments of gladness. How could I be silent when it’s time to praise you? Now my heart sings out loud, bursting with joy a bliss inside that keeps me singing, “I can never thank you enough!” - Psalms 30:1-12

Today, I pray you shout to the Lord like no one is watching. Shout for the victories you've already seen in your life and praise for the victories that are still to come. Be overwhelmed by Gods love, His joy, and His gladness. Use your weapon of praise. I pray that you give thanks for not just the large victories but even the small. I pray that supernatural miracles start to take place in your life. That strongholds be broken in the name of Jesus. That healing takes place. That everything in your life be restored in Jesus mighty name.
