Mahesh and Bonnie ChavdaSeveral weeks ago I (Mahesh) was sitting in my library when I suddenly heard a noise behind me. I turned and saw an angel right there. He was young-looking, majestic, awesome, and full of strength, joy, and vigor. He was smiling, but there was the fragrance and atmosphere of battle all around him. He was a warring angel, and he had just come from battle.

I had the impression that I was not his assignment. He was literally coming from one battle and heading off to another one. But in between he landed momentarily, looked at me, smiled and asked, "How big is your chair?" Then, just as suddenly as he appeared, he departed.

After he left, and before I had time to process his question, "How big is your chair?" I realized I was hearing music. In the moments that he was there, he carried with him the vibrations of the hymn, "Come Thou Almighty King": "Come Thou Almighty King / Help us Thy Name to sing / Help us to praise ... Come and reign over us, Ancient of Days." It was as if this hymn were the song of the battle the angel had just won. The sound and words lingered in the atmosphere surrounding him as he carried the message from the Lord, "How big is your chair?" Before I could ponder the question, the Holy Spirit answered, "Psalm 22:3: ‘You are enthroned on the praises of your people.'"

When the Lord asks a question, it is a loaded one. The message was not about my chair; it was about His chair. His throne. How big is His throne? How big is the chair we have made for Him in our hearts? We make His chair big through our praises. He is enthroned on our praises.

God is speaking to us strategically in this hour. Make it personal in your life—become a vessel of His glory as you enthrone the King of kings in your heart. The bigger your chair, the more awesome you make God, the more awesome the release of His glory.

How do we make God awesome? We begin to praise Him. We magnify the Lord as we proclaim His goodness, harmonize with His Word and exalt His mighty name. We become more and more in tune with the throne of heaven, and we become more aware of His awesome power and authority. You become a possessor of the truth, and in that context your chair gets bigger. The bigger the chair, the greater the authority, the greater the victory!

We represent the One who is in the big chair. He puts His servants in situations in which they are responsible for bringing in His Presence—for carrying a "big-chair mentality" into the situations. The bigger His throne, the more we will begin to resonate the supernatural reality of heaven and will see with eyes that go beyond the natural realm.

Some of the greatest warriors are the Zulu tribes in South Africa. In fact, the Zulu army used to put terror into the hearts of the soldiers in the British Army. When the Zulus found Jesus, they became just as awesome as warriors in the Spirit as they are warriors in the natural. These men dripped miracles, signs and wonders. They never became famous because they were content to live simply off the land with their flocks, but they knew the King of heaven and carried His presence.
