Raise A Hallelujah: A Devotional

I raise a hallelujah
In the presence of my enemies
I raise a hallelujah
Louder than the unbelief
I raise a hallelujah
My weapon is a melody
I raise a hallelujah
Heaven comes to fight for me

Raise a Hallelujah – Bethel Music

I wanted to write a blog post about coming into the new year with a new slate, new goals, a new mindset… a new everything! But when we face reality, not everything is always peachy and rosy. Our lives doesn’t stop, pause and start whenever we wish it to. After which we realise, that the only real change, is the date. We are thankful that we made it into a new year, when countless other people, didn’t – some of which were family members or friends. But maybe our situation is still the same. Constantly at the brink of emotional instability, physical break down. Dividing the money equally to make sure there is enough to go round for the month, till the next loan, student finance or pay check. The thought of having to face another day but not knowing what to do.

For a lot of us… these things don’t change.

We feel like these struggles are ever present and therefore can’t really begin to fathom the wind of fresh air, this new year has to offer. We feel as though we have been blocked by a giant of unbelief and hopelessness that we can’t move.

In the Bible, 1 Samuel 17 Goliath pointed his sword at David, not knowing that, that same sword would be what David used to defeat him! The enemy might be pointing unbelief and doubt in your face, standing in your way, but you will overcome it. You will come out of it. Raise a hallelujah so loud, until you can no longer hear those whispers. Raise a hallelujah till the giant in front of you doesn’t faze you anymore. Raise a hallelujah because heaven is fighting for you! Deut 3:22

Take 10 minutes of your time to listen to worship song and use it as a declaration against whatever is standing up against or in front of you today.

This year, 2019,
Live a little bolder
Sing a little louder
Hope a little larger
Believe a little stronger &
Breathe a little deeper.

Write down some or all of the situations you’re facing right now on a piece of paper titled “This Belongs To God”. Then as you listen to the YouTube video, sing a little louder than you usually would and allow God to use your struggle to make you stronger.
