Sermon Note (2nd svc)By Pastor Lian
Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants
You have ordained strength,
Because of Your enemies,
That You may silence the enemy and the avenger.
God has established strength in our mouth so that the enemy might be silent.
God gave us strength to destroy sickness poverty in our mouth.
and said to Him, “Do You hear what these are saying?”
And Jesus said to them, “Yes. Have you never read,
‘Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants
You have perfected praise’? ”
When praise comes out, strength come out!
Power of praise! When someone’s praises goes up, the power of God comes down!! God’s provision comes in, and His tangible presence! He inhabits our praises! His presences comes into our situation.
God’s power comes down upon my situation!
Don’t wait for things to be perfect before u start praising God.

and said: “O Lord God of our fathers, are You not God in heaven, and do You not rule over all the kingdoms of the nations, and in Your hand is there not power and might, so that no one is able to withstand You? Are You not our God, who drove out the inhabitants of this land before Your people Israel, and gave it to the descendants of Abraham Your friend forever? And they dwell in it, and have built You a sanctuary in it for Your name, saying,
Remember how our God is able. To seek the *Lord is to shout help to him, instead of complaining, cast my help upon the Lord.
When you praise the Lord, your eyes start to shift away from the problem and know Jesus is big enough to solve your problems.
When you in the midst of your problem, u just shift your eyes away from every stress. Just look up and say help. I have a God who loves me and He is for me!!
