2 Chronicles 20 : 21-22 – After consulting the people, Jehosophat appointed men to sing to the Lord and to praise Him for the splendour of His holiness as they went out at the head of the army saying “give thanks to the Lord for His love endures forever” as they began to sing and praise the Lord set ambushes against the men of Ammon and Moab and Mount Seir who were invading Judah and they were defeated.
As the year closes and we reflect on 2016, we understand that it has been a year of great transitioning from the old to the new, and it’s been painful to let go and let God have His way. For those who have made the shift, they now find themselves standing in front of a door called destiny and if you have correctly positioned yourself, Heaven is now releasing divine keys to unlock destiny doors which will elevate and promote you to higher levels. There is elevation for those who would unlock and walk through the door, and on this new level there will be many new faces, new spaces, and new places which the Father has assigned for the next phase of your prophetic destiny. Isaiah 22:22 – “I will place on His shoulder the key to the house of david that what He opens no one can shut and what He shuts no one can open.”
To receive the key being released, you need to pick up your weapon of war called praise. Praise is a powerful weapon which shifts, charges, and changes the atmosphere over your life to release breakthrough into your circumstances. I’m reminded of a woman named Tamar who was barren, but when she made a decision to come into union with Judah (praise), fruitfulness was released and she gave birth to Perez (the spirit of breakthrough). I believe God is releasing a breakthrough strategy to His people through praise.
