The SpiritLed Woman podcast is empowering women weekly to follow their purpose in Christ and boldly walk in faith. Listen at charismapodcastnetwork.com.


PRAISE GOD One thing I have learned and am still learning is that you don't praise God when the answer comes, you praise God until the answer comes. Something happens when you lift your hands and your voice to praise God in the midst of all hell surrounding you.

When Saul was pursuing David to kill him, David chose to say: "I will bless the Lord at all times. His praise shall continually be in my mouth" (Ps. 34:1, NKJV).

The devil wants to rob you of your worship and praise. He wants to shut your mouth because if he can get your praise and worship, then he has your joy and strength. He knows the Word declares, " 'The joy of the Lord is your strength' " (Neh. 8:10).

Begin to rejoice in God. See yourself mighty in spirit and walking in victory. What you can see with spirit eyes in the supernatural, you can believe to come forth in the natural.

You have the authority to speak to that spirit of sickness in your body, that rebellion in your teenager, the adultery that is looming over your marriage, and that spirit of destruction that is targeting your dreams. You have to see that hateful teenager dancing in the Spirit and that husband walking in truth. See yourself prosperous, healed and delivered. See it!

Now, here's what I see: mighty women of godly character with confidence in their callings. I see them standing strong, anointed, violent in their faith and persistent in prayer. And, as I see those hands lifted high in worship, I hear a shout going through the heavens.

I see the devil fleeing in terror because you and I are rising up now, and we know that "The weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty in God for pulling down [Satan's] strongholds" (2 Cor. 10:4). We are women, mighty in spirit, who are strong in the strength of our Lord. And in His power, we are victorious!
