Text: Psalm 66:1-7
Memory verse:
”Say to God, “How awesome are Your works! Through the greatness of Your power Your enemies shall submit themselves to You.“
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭66‬:‭3‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

The hymn, “How great thou art”, was written by Carl Boberg (1859-1940), after a unique experience from a visit to a beautiful country estate. He got caught in a midday thunderstorm with awe-inspiring moments of flashing violence, followed by a clear brilliant sun. Soon afterwards he heard the calm, sweet songs of the birds in nearby trees, which left him falling to his knees in awe.
This is one of the most frequently sang hymns in our time. Even though God is indescribable and inexpressible, yet we are to declare His greatness.
According to our memory text, when you declare the greatness of the Almighty, He demonstrates His greatness in your affairs by causing your enemies to submit. The enemies cringe before Him and submit to Him. That’s why you see demons become uncomfortable and scream to leave when genuine praise is rendered to God. I pity people who don’t know this joyful sound and who stand aloof during praise.
Jehoshaphat and the people of Judah didn’t carry any physical weapons, yet the enemies who gathered against them were destroyed, as they praised God and declared His greatness (2 Chro 20:22). David killed Goliath without a sword in his hands but the weapon of praise in His mouth (1 Sam 17:50). This is the easiest way to get vengeance over your known and unknown adversaries. David didn’t know that there was an enemy in his house until the day he gave the high praise of God at the returning of the ark (2 Sam 6:14, 16, 23). An enemy may not be a person but a condition like sickness, lack, oppression, delay, unfruitfulness, failure and so forth. Satan is the arch enemy behind the scene. They all bow and give way when God’s greatness is praised.
Friends, as you praise God today, anything that will not let you go will go down for you. The Almighty One will cause all your known and unknown enemies to submit, in Jesus’ name.

Prayer points
