Praise: A Weapon of Warfare and Deliverance
As you praise the Lord, things begin to happen in the unseen realm.
In the Old Testament, the people of God didn’t have the name of Jesus as a weapon, but they did have praise. When Saul was troubled by an evil spirit, the only thing they knew to help him was to call David. What happened when David began to play on his harp and sing praise to his God? The evil spirit departed from King Saul. You can see why praise was so important to those Old Testament saints. You can see why they developed such a lifestyle of praise.
We are told to resist the devil and make him flee, and praise is an often overlooked and underused weapon to accomplish this. I want you to understand what your praise does in the spirit realm. A demon cannot exist in that atmosphere — he simply cannot function. Evil spirits have tormented us enough; through praise we get to turn the tables and torment them!
