There is tremendous power available when Christians lift their voices in praise and thanksgiving to the Lord God. Everything that Jesus has done for us on the cross and through His death, burial, and resurrection is activated through praise and worship.
Let the high praises of God be in their mouth and a two-edged sword in their hand; to execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people; to bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron; to execute upon them the judgment written: this honor have all his saints.  Praise ye the Lord.
(Ps. 149:6-9 KJV)
There is tremendous power available when Christians lift their voices in praise and thanksgiving to the Lord God. Everything that Jesus has done for us on the cross and through His death, burial, and resurrection is activated through praise and worship. "Let the high praises of God be in your mouth and a two-edged sword in your hand …to execute vengeance…to bind kings…to execute judgment." 

The power of the blood of Jesus is activated as we lift our voices in praise to God. Every believer has authority. We exercise our authority when we lift our voices in praise. The Lord Jesus has defeated Satan, but there is an execution of judgment upon him and his works when we praise God. This is why Satan will try to keep you quiet. If you are silent, you lose by default.

God has ordained strength to come out of your mouth…because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy (Ps. 8:2). Jesus referred to this verse in Matthew 21:16 as perfected praise. The power of praise was ordained to stop the enemy. The principalities and powers of darkness are bound and their schemes are defeated when believers lift their voices in praise. The weapons of our warfare are mighty through God (2 Cor. 10:4-5).

Lift Your Voice
Through Him, therefore, let us constantly and at all times offer up to God a sacrifice of praise, which is the fruit of our lips that thankfully acknowledge and confess and glorify His name.
(Heb. 13:15 AMP)
When we as believers live a lifestyle of praise and thanksgiving to God, we have supernatural strength coming out of our mouths. God can be no bigger in you than you praise Him to be. The wider and the louder we open our mouths in praise, confession, and thanksgiving, the bigger Jesus is in our lives. Our salvation and victory is activated by a voice of thanksgiving.

"I will bless the Lord at all times: His praise shall continually be in my mouth.  O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt His name together" (Ps. 34:1,3). 

"In God will I praise His Word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do unto me" (Ps. 56:4).

"For they intended evil against thee: they imagined a mischievous device, which they are not able to perform. Be thou exalted, Lord in thine own strength: so will we sing and praise thy power" (Ps. 21:11,13). 

Your Voice, Your Address in the Spirit
And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises to God…and suddenly there was a great earthquake…all the doors were opened…everyone's bands were loosed.
(Acts 16:25)
Praise stops the enemy. As we lift our voices, deliverance comes. Your voice is your address in the spirit. In the darkest hour Paul and Silas sang praises to God. As they lifted their voices in praise, tremendous power was made available. God has ordained strength to come out of our mouths. Perfected praise stops the schemes of the enemy. 

The high praises of God in your mouth will execute vengeance, bind devils, and execute the judgment written. It is written…It is written…It is written….  The Word of God is forever settled in heaven (Ps. 119:89). God needs someone on the earth to lift his or her voice in praise and thanksgiving to His Word.

As believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, we declare a "Holy War." Jesus is Lord! Satan is a defeated foe! Do not be silent! Lift your voice in praise and execute vengeance and judgment in your life and in the earth in this hour!
