Shout, and sing for joy, O inhabitant of Zion, for great in your midst is the Holy One of Israel.
There are many expressions of worship. One of which is shouting. Shout with a purpose. Usually during warfare worship, when the drums are going, and the people break forth into shouts of victory. I remember once at particular warfare worship. I began to shout ‘Victory’. At first, I was self-conscious and felt uncomfortable. As I kept going, I was focusing on victory for specific areas of my life. Suddenly a firm conviction fell upon me, and I knew that as I kept going, I am going to experience tremendous victory in my life. I was so excited, and I kept shouting ‘victory! Victory! VICTORY!!! VICTORY!!’. True enough, I begin to experience breakthroughs in my life.
Shouting is powerful, but not just any shout. It has to come from something deep within, like a cry from our hearts through a shout. Another time it was just a word “Hah! Hah! Hah! Hah!” with the beat of the drums. Imagine you are trying to hammer down a wall. You pick the hammer, and you keep going till the wall crumbles down at your feet. Shouting is the same, keep going at it, and you will feel a sense of relief and breakthrough.
Then my head will be exalted above the enemies who surround me; at his tabernacle will I sacrifice with shouts of joy; I will sing and make music to the Lord.
Just a side note: Please remember to shout sensibly and not disturb your neighbours. It’s a bit harder for me now as our church is at home; I have to be careful to control my volume. If I get the opportunity, I will shout it out to the seas! Let the waves carry my shouts.
When you get the opportunity to break forth into warfare worship, let the expression of shout break forth. It is so powerful.
Heavenly Father, we thank you for today. Thank you for the many blessings You have showered upon us. Thank you for keeping us safe. Lord, grant us the boldness to shout it out. Help us to let go and let You take control of every situation. We thank You, Jesus, for giving us courage and strength to be overcomer. Grant us a great week and a productive day. Bless this day. In Jesus name, I pray, Amen.
