26 December 2021 - Praise Our Good God - New Creation Church Sermon Notes - Pastor Lawrence Lim
New Sermon Notes: Pastor Lawrence Lim taught about a unique phrase used to praise the Lord. Every time Israel used this phrase, good things happened for them and they were strengthened.
Praise and Worship Song Performed:
1. How Great Is Our God - Michael W. Smith
2. You Alone I Praise - New Creation Worship
3. Blessed Assurance - Fanny Jane Crosby
Prophetic word: You will only see an increase of favor, provision, health, etc. in your life. God is a God of increase. Your path will shine brighter and brighter in Jesus’ name.
Psalm 33:1 - You look especially beautiful to God when you praise.
“Rejoice in the Lord, O you righteous! For praise from the upright is beautiful.” (Psalms 33:1 NKJV)
Psalm 147:1 - Your praises are pleasant to God.
“Praise Yah, for it is good to sing praises to our God; for it is pleasant and fitting to praise him.” (Psalms 147:1 WEB)
Matthew 21:12-16 - When the house of God (the church) is a house of prayer, healing miracles will happen.
Prayer does not make you fit for the greater work—prayer is the greater work.
The chief priests and scribes were envious because the children were declaring that Jesus is the Messiah.
“Jesus entered into the temple of God, and drove out all of those who sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the money changers’ tables and the seats of those who sold the doves. He said to them, “It is written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer,’ but you have made it a den of robbers!” The blind and the lame came to him in the temple, and he healed them. But when the chief priests and the scribes saw the wonderful things that he did, and the children who were crying in the temple and saying, “Hosanna to the son of David!” they were indignant, and said to him, “Do you hear what these are saying?” Jesus said to them, “Yes. Did you never read, ‘Out of the mouth of babes and nursing babies you have perfected praise?’”” (Matthew 21:12-16 WEB)
Psalm 8:2 - This is the verse that Jesus quoted from. However, here it says “established strength” instead of “perfected praise”.
Praise causes you to be strengthened. Whatever your challenge may be, just praise the Lord. Something good happens when you praise the Lord. When you praise Him, you will silence the enemy and the avenger.
“From the lips of babes and infants you have established strength, because of your adversaries, that you might silence the enemy and the avenger.” (Psalms 8:2 WEB)
