SCRIPTURE: Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee. Then shall the earth yield her increase; and God, even our own God, shall bless us. Psalms 67:5-6.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The praise of man is the provoker of the Blessing of God.
Our anchor Scripture reveals that the praise of man is the provoker of the Blessing of God; man’s worship is the provoker of the Blessing of God. The extent to which a person worships God is a major determinant of the extent to which they will experience the Blessing of God.
Now, one reason why people are not blessed at the same level is because people do not praise God at the same level. God is not a respecter of persons but a respecter of principles. If you do what great men do, you would see great results.
For example, by the Grace of God, we send financial support from Nigeria to ministries in different parts of the world. This is because I believe that being black is not synonymous with lack. Whereas, there are ministries in Africa that take pictures of their local church setting and meetings, and send them abroad for support as they paint the picture of themselves as missionaries. We have never made such solicitations nor collected one dime from any country to further the work of God.
So, no one is advantaged because he lives in America and no one is disadvantaged because he lives in Africa; no one is disadvantaged because he is black and no one is advantaged because he is white. If you want to prosper in any area or realm of life, all you need is to know and do what the Bible says.
Beloved, I want to let you know that God is about to make you a Blessing to your world, and one of the ways of accessing such blessings is the lifestyle of praise and worship.
Remember this: The praise of man is the provoker of the Blessing of God.
1. Maintain the atmosphere of joy and excitement to enhance your praise.
2. Connect to unusual Blessing of God through unconditional praise.
PRAYER: Thank You Lord for Your Word to me today. I receive the grace to praise You always, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

AMAZING FACT: The eagle eye is among the strongest in the animal kingdom, with an eyesight estimated at 4 to 8 times stronger than those of other animals. An eagle is said to be able to spot a rabbit 3.2 kilometers (2 miles) away.
If God gave such incredible vision to an eagle, how much more a creature in God’s Image like you? Refuse to exist without a vision.
