Pastor Mathew Eleojo James , the dynamic leader of Solemn Faith International Church, delivered a compelling message on “Engaging the Force of Praise for All-Round Possibilities” during the Sunday service on 4th February 2024 held at No 21 Plot 14 Federal Housing Estate, Woji, Port Harcourt.

In a spiritually charged atmosphere, Pastor Mathew Eleojo James unfolded the significance of praise, declaring it as the dwelling place of God.

Quoting Psalm 22:3, he emphasized that praise is the secret place of the Most High (Psalm 91:1, Exodus 33:18-23).

Highlighting praise as the access code to God’s inner chambers, the pastor drew parallels to Job 29:4 and Deuteronomy 29:29, unlocking the secrets for divine elevation.

Pastor James provided a profound understanding of praise, defining it as the release of sound, words, songs, and actions glorifying God.

He referenced Psalm 92:3, Acts 13:2, 15:11, Isaiah 42:10, and 2 Samuel 6:14 to illustrate this concept.

Delving into the power of praise, the pastor cited instances from 2 Samuel 6:21-23, Acts 16:25-26, 12:1-17, 2 Chronicles 5:2-14, Psalm 114:1-8, Joel 1:12, and Habakkuk 3:17-19.

The sermon emphasized that praise with understanding, in faith, and in uprightness leads to tangible results.

References to Psalm 47:7, Daniel 11:33, Ecclesiastes 10:15, and Romans 4:20 supported this perspective.

He also released some inspiring quotes such as: “Where God dwells, is where people do well” (Isaiah 3:10-11).

“God’s presence can be everywhere, but He does not live everywhere” (1 Corinthians 3:17).

“Remember, God knows your address, but for Him to honor your invitation into your apartment, you must praise Him into the invite” (Acts 9:11, 16:25-26).

“The throne of praise will definitely lead to the throne of grace” (1 Corinthians 15:10, Hebrews 4:16).

“A praiseful life is a fruitful life, and increase is guaranteed when your praise is genuinely released unto God.”

The service featured uplifting praise sessions with performances from various Gospel artists, creating an atmosphere of spiritual connection.

Pastor James concluded with a powerful reminder, stating, “Your praise is your license to blessings and overflowing at any point in life. When it seems tough, use your praise to make it soft and move on again.”
