GIVE THE LORD A SHOUT!
(Keep On With The Victory Shout)
TO THE BIBLE Psalm 118:15 NASB
“The sound of joyful shouting and salvation is in the tents of the righteous; The right hand of the LORD does valiantly.”
Vanessa had always been a shy, unassuming character; she would sneak in and out her classes without as much as a squeal. She hadn’t received the Holy Spirit and knew there was something missing in her Christianity. One day, she went to a church where they prayed regularly in tongues and shared the Word – it didn’t take long, as the congregation praised God and shouted jubilantly for joy, that she was overwhelmed by the Holy Spirit and burst out in tongues! From then on, quiet Vanessa was gone and a new fired up Vanessa had come!
There’s something about our shout in the Holy Ghost; it’s not ordinary. If you go to a Church where they never shout, something is surely missing: it’s the power of the Holy Ghost, because once the Holy Ghost gets anywhere, the shout of a king is there; He announces His presence.
Recall what happened on the day of Pentecost: the day the Holy Spirit began His dispensation with the Church. The Bible says, “…suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting” (Acts 2:2).
Notice the description: the sound was as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. The Holy Spirit announced His presence with a loud sound! Were they quiet afterwards? No! Acts 2:4 says, “…they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.”
When the Holy Ghost comes into your life, irrespective of how quiet you’ve been, it makes no difference; you can’t be quiet anymore. I don’t mean to say you become loquacious; I’m talking about the power of the Spirit stirred in you to shout and speak God’s Word with boldness. It’s not a shout of confusion or fright, but the shout of a king; the victory shout!
Psalm 20:5; 2 Chronicles 20:21-22; 1 Corinthians 15:57
Dear Father, thank you for always leading me in triumph in Christ, and manifesting through me the sweet aroma of your knowledge in every place. Christ lives in me, and He’s my all. Thank you for making me a testimony of your abundant grace, and unending love, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
