TOPIC: Be A True Worshipper

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Proverbs 16, Proverbs 17, 1 John 5, 2 John 1

FIRE SCRIPTURE: Judges 5:1-31 (KJV)

1 Then sang Deborah and Barak the son of Abinoam on that day, saying,

2 Praise ye the Lord for the avenging of Israel, when the people willingly offered themselves.

3 Hear, O ye kings; give ear, O ye princes; I, even I, will sing unto the Lord; I will sing praise to the Lord God of Israel.

4 Lord, when thou wentest out of Seir, when thou marchedst out of the field of Edom, the earth trembled, and the heavens dropped, the clouds also dropped water.

5 The mountains melted from before the Lord, even that Sinai from before the Lord God of Israel.

6 In the days of Shamgar the son of Anath, in the days of Jael, the highways were unoccupied, and the travellers walked through byways.

7 The inhabitants of the villages ceased, they ceased in Israel, until that I Deborah arose, that I arose a mother in Israel.

8 They chose new gods; then was war in the gates: was there a shield or spear seen among forty thousand in Israel?

9 My heart is toward the governors of Israel, that offered themselves willingly among the people. Bless ye the Lord.

10 Speak, ye that ride on white asses, ye that sit in judgment, and walk by the way.

11 They that are delivered from the noise of archers in the places of drawing water, there shall they rehearse the righteous acts of the Lord, even the righteous acts toward the inhabitants of his villages in Israel: then shall the people of the Lord go down to the gates.

12 Awake, awake, Deborah: awake, awake, utter a song: arise, Barak, and lead thy captivity captive, thou son of Abinoam.

13 Then he made him that remaineth have dominion over the nobles among the people: the Lord made me have dominion over the mighty.

14 Out of Ephraim was there a root of them against Amalek; after thee, Benjamin, among thy people; out of Machir came down governors, and out of Zebulun they that handle the pen of the writer.

15 And the princes of Issachar were with Deborah; even Issachar, and also Barak: he was sent on foot into the valley. For the divisions of Reuben there were great thoughts of heart.

16 Why abodest thou among the sheepfolds, to hear the bleatings of the flocks? For the divisions of Reuben there were great searchings of heart.

17 Gilead abode beyond Jordan: and why did Dan remain in ships? Asher continued on the sea shore, and abode in his breaches.

18 Zebulun and Naphtali were a people that jeoparded their lives unto the death in the high places of the field.

19 The kings came and fought, then fought the kings of Canaan in Taanach by the waters of Megiddo; they took no gain of money.

20 They fought from heaven; the stars in their courses fought against Sisera.

21 The river of Kishon swept them away, that ancient river, the river Kishon. O my soul, thou hast trodden down strength.

22 Then were the horsehoofs broken by the means of the pransings, the pransings of their mighty ones.

23 Curse ye Meroz, said the angel of the Lord, curse ye bitterly the inhabitants thereof; because they came not to the help of the Lord, to the help of the Lord against the mighty.

24 Blessed above women shall Jael the wife of Heber the Kenite be, blessed shall she be above women in the tent.

25 He asked water, and she gave him milk; she brought forth butter in a lordly dish.

26 She put her hand to the nail, and her right hand to the workmen’s hammer; and with the hammer she smote Sisera, she smote off his head, when she had pierced and stricken through his temples.

27 At her feet he bowed, he fell, he lay down: at her feet he bowed, he fell: where he bowed, there he fell down dead.

28 The mother of Sisera looked out at a window, and cried through the lattice, Why is his chariot so long in coming? why tarry the wheels of his chariots?

29 Her wise ladies answered her, yea, she returned answer to herself,

30 Have they not sped? have they not divided the prey; to every man a damsel or two; to Sisera a prey of divers colours, a prey of divers colours of needlework, of divers colours of needlework on both sides, meet for the necks of them that take the spoil?

31 So let all thine enemies perish, O Lord: but let them that love him be as the sun when he goeth forth in his might. And the land had rest forty years.

MEMORY VERSE: “Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;” – Ephesians 5:19


When you fight your battles from the place of worship, victory is inevitable. Your worship is your weapon!


Take praise and worship songs as led by the Holy Spirit




As believer, we are created to worship God; that is our primary purpose for living. Worship is the heart poured to God in gratitude. It is, expressing our appreciation of Who He is and what He has done for us by His grace through Jesus Christ.

Deborah was a true worshipper who understood the place of spiritual songs in her prophetic ministry. She understood spiritual things and how they operate. She knew how to bring the arm of God to bare in her prophetic ministry. She was a deep and true worshipper of God. She knew that the prophetic ministry cannot be divorced from the music ministry. Elisha also understood this mystery so well, that he asked for a minstrel when he wanted to minister. But now bring me a minstrel. And it came to pass, when the minstrel played, that the hand of the LORD came upon him (1 Kings 3:15). Deborah and Barak sang unto the Lord and saw His hand upon their lives. She fought her battles from the place of worship. She gave honour unto whom it is due.

So many Christians are yet to know the importance of worship in spiritual warfare. They seem to magnify their battles more than the God that can fight the battles in less than a second. They forgot that cheap victory is won when you fight from the place of worship. When you worship God amidst trials, you are handling your battles to the One who alone does great wonders. This is the secret of Patriarch David. He worshipped God and God always showed up. He fought several battles yet he never died in battle. He died a natural death. The secret is WORSHIP.

Beloved, let us learn to engage worship, high praise and thanksgiving in our daily prayer life. Prayers alone take your problems to God but worship combined with prayers bring God into the scenes of your problems and, of course, the results can never be the same. It is also possible to pray amiss but you can never praise God amiss. There is a limit to which our human might can achieve in terms of spiritual warfare but when you hand over the battles to God whose might knows no bound through worship, you will be amazed about the results you will record in no time.

Do you know that you can discover and re-awaken your buried, dormant or sleeping talents through deep and intentional worship? Yes, you can! It happened to Elisha. Are you in the prophetic? You need to also learn the art of singing. It is a propellant. I pray that as we worship God in truth and in spirit, He will show up for us in a big way, in the name of Jesus.



Bring deep and intentional worship to God this morning.

Give a shout of praise right where you are.

Shout 7 glorious Hallelujah to the Lord.


O God my Father, revive my worship life, in the name of Jesus.

O God my Father, show up in my situations, in the name of Jesus.

I refuse to pray amiss, in the name of Jesus.

Give God another shout of praise, right there where you are.
