Have we forgotten the power of the shout? And no, I’m not talking about the “power” of shouting at your husband, or children, or to someone who just cut you off on the interstate. I’m talking about shouting to God with cries of joy.

Clap your hands, all you nations; shout to God with cries of joy. How awesome is the Lord Most High, the great king over all the earth. (Psalm 47:1-2)

We sing about it all the time.

“Shout with a voice of triumph. Shout with a voice of praise.”

“Shout for the victory. Shout if you’ve been set free.”

“Shout to the Lord, all the earth let us sing. Power and majesty, praise to the King.”

We need to stop just singing about it and live it. As I once heard a pastor say, “Worship ain’t meant to be cute.”

True worship comes from deep within your spirit. It should make you wanna, “Shout! Throw your hands up and shout! Yeah-yeah-yeah!!”

Sometimes worship and praise are quiet, reflective, intimate. But sometimes, you just gotta shout! “Weeeeeeee” is not shouting.

If you’re a thinker and you just can’t bring yourself to shout for shouting’s sake, try shouting, “HALLELUJAH!!”

I have heard that when we shout “HALLELUJAH!!”, it hurts the devil’s ears…. So keep shouting brothers and sisters!

John 12:13 does not say, They took palm branches and went out to meet Him, whispering, “Hosanna! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!”

No! It says, They took palm branches and went out to meet Him, shouting, “Hosanna! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!”

If the Lord has ever delivered you from something, you have a reason to shout.

If the Lord has ever healed you, you have a reason to shout.

If the Lord has ever blessed you, you have a reason to shout.

If the Lord has ever answered your prayers, you have a reason to shout.

If the Lord has continually brought you over every mountain and through every valley, guess what?? You have a reason to shout.

Sing to God, sing praise to His name, extol Him who rides on the clouds – His name is the Lord – and rejoice before Him. (Psalm 68:4)

Shout aloud and sing for joy, people of Zion, for great is the Holy One of Israel among you.(Isaiah 12:6)

He will yet fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with shouts of joy. (Job 8:21)

Sing to Him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy. (Psalm 33:3)

I encourage each of you, in the next week, at least once, when you are somewhere alone. In your car, in your home, outside, in a stairwell, wherever, just shout, at the top of your lungs, HALLELUJAH!! It is rejuvenating, it is replenishing. It will help you get into a wonderful habit of praising our Lord and Savior!

Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation. (Psalm 95:1)

God Bless You!

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
