“I’m going to shout about that…!” Received this quote from an email yesterday. This person is facing some spiritual Jericho’s and decided to put on their “shouting shoes” and praise God for His past faithfulness as well as the victories to come. Yes!!! This is where the journey of faith should lead us. Put on your “shouting shoes” and declare the praises of our Father God and all the victories that belong to us in His Jesus.
What is the Jericho you are facing today? Family problems, a difficult person at work, uncertainty about the future, health issues, an addiction, intense spiritual warfare, etc?
Try this, shout out the name of Jesus as loud as you can. Now, this works fine when you are home alone or driving by yourself, but if the shouting could cause someone to have a heart attack you may need to shout in your soul. It really doesn’t matter where or how you shout, but do take a moment to declare Jesus as the crucified, risen, reigning King of kings who has defeated the grave, sin, and our enemy Satan.
When you shout His praise or sing it around your Jericho, you put on the Gospel shoes and cause the gates of hell to crumble and your enemy to flee in fear of the great name of Jesus. Read Matthew 16: 16-18. His Kingdom grows in you and around you as you continuously shout out His praise in faith. Psalm 22:3 says, “God is enthroned (or inhabits) the praises (shouts) of His people.” God the Father will move in your heart and mind to break through strongholds as you shout His praise.
So on the count of 3 shout the name of Jesus, declaring His victory over your situation 1,2, 3 ………………! Remember how importance it is to share God’s victories in your life with others, just like the email encouraged me in my faith!
