Proverbs 31:30. "...But a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised."




Romans 10:9. "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved!"

Acts 4:11-12.  "This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner.  v12.  Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved."




Woman of Praise
by K. Michael

Psalm 101

Psalm 101:1. “I will sing of mercy and judgment: unto thee, O Lord, will I sing.”

When was the last time you sang unto the Lord? I mean really sing. A few weeks ago, I was in a spiritual battle and had worn myself out with much prayer--and prayer is good for every Woman of Praise—then, suddenly I heard the Lord say, “SING.” So, I opened my mouth and began to sing and as I began singing, I felt a fresh burst of anointing falling upon me and a surge of energy shooting through my body.

I immediately noticed that the darkness had dissipated and the brightness appeared because there is power in singing. The Psalmist David, understood this and utilized it many times. Jehoshaphat, in the book of II Chronicles, chapter 20, verses 17-27, defeated his enemies by putting the singers in the forefront when he went to war. Paul and Silas were supernaturally released from prison after praying and praising God (Acts 16:25).

You can do the same thing too. Singing brings the devil under submission. Singing is a weapon of warfare. Singing brings the presence of your God. So, the next time you have a battle to fight, just sing and let the Almighty God do the rest because the battle is the not yours; but the Lord’s. A Woman of Praise must learn how to sing to her God and about her God. Amen.

You see sometimes the devil tries to imprison you; but, as you open up your mouth to praise or worship your God in singing, the prison locks get broken and the doors will swing open to give you your freedom.

There are days I wake up and it seems as if a dark cloud were hanging over my head. But once I put on some music and start singing, before I know it my spirit gets revived and my hope gets renewed. Sometimes that darkness comes in the form of depression, discouragement, and feelings of rejection. Sometimes, it’s a battle against the unseen forces. But no matter what form it takes, God has given you a key to get the victory through singing. So open up your mouth and sing Woman of Praise.

Sing when you don’t have peace. Sing when you’re feeling despondent. Sing when you’re not happy. Sing when you’re glad. Sing when everything’s okay. Sing when things are tumbling down. Sing when your joy is full. Sing when there’s money in your pocket. Sing when you don’t have a penny. Sing when all the people love you. Sing when nobody cares. Just Sing! Sing when you’re sick. Sing when you’re healed. Sing when your back is against the wall. Sing when you’re afraid. Sing when you're all alone. Sing!

But don’t just sing any old song. Sing about your God. David said he will sing about God’s mercy and judgment in the quotation above.  You can sing about His mercy, judgment, justice, goodness, and love. You can sing about His greatness, power, holiness, and peace. You can sing about what He has done for you! Psalm 100 says:

“Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands. Verse 2. Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing. Verse 3. Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people and the sheep of his pasture. Verse 4. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. Verse. 5. For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.”


" The words of a talebearer are as wounds, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly."

Proverbs 26:22.


by K. Bamkefa

Everyone in this world has been given a name under heaven whereby he is identified, called, and known, from the day of his appearance into this world until the day he dies. Some of us have names with great meanings and others have names that we desire to change, like in the case of Jabez in the Bible. Some of us have names that were divinely ordained, like John the Baptist’s in the Scriptures and names that were changed by God as in Abraham and Sarah’s cases. Then some of us have names that are easy to pronounce and others, well, names that challenge the tongue; but regardless of your name-type, the sound of your name reminds others of whom you are.

The announcement of your name conjures images about you in the minds of others: whether true or false, good or bad. That’s why the devil works overtime to tarnish your image; because he knows when he destroys your name, he’s destroying you. But, you too have a role to play in the preservation of your own name. Do not do things that will give others a negative impression of you! The choice is yours. Guard your name!  and the Almighty God will remove any stigmas the wicked has wrongly, maliciously, and intentionally posted against you.  And if you are someone like, Jabez , who was given a name of doom, the Omnipotent God has the power to show His graciousness toward you by giving you a destiny that’s contrary to the one attached to your name, in the name of Jesus!

 The name that’s above all names! The name at which every knee will bow in the heavens above, in this earth, and beneath the earth. The name that is greater than all names in this world, and in the world to come because He has the power to do it! So give Him Praise! He has the power to change your destiny. He has the power to alter your image. He has the power to transform your character. He has the power to give you a new name. He even has the power to renew your life by and through the name of His only begotten and wonderful Son, Jesus Christ! Halleluiah! Give Him praise!

Proverbs 22:1. “A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold.”



His Banqueting Table

Proverbs 2:1-7

"My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee;  v2.  So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding;  v3.  Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding;  v4.  If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures;  v5.  Then shalt thou understand the fear of the Lord, and find the knowledge of God.  v6.  For the Lord giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.  v7.  He layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous: he is a buckler to them that walk uprightly."
