How Praise Creates Your Breakthrough

by | Jul 23, 2015 | Woman

We are in a fresh new season of revival that will literally bring a refreshing of power and glory into the nations like never before. This being understood, we need to know that there is a supernatural power that is released in praise that alters both the physical and non-physical realms that shift society and nations when released.

When the praises go up, the glory comes down. It’s that simple. If we are going to see the necessary breakthrough in our personal lives, churches, cities, regions and nations, then we need to understand the subatomic power of praise.

Sound is an amazing force. Ray Hughes says, “A pair of 30-inch speakers connected to a tone generator can generate a note low enough to literally, physically, move a building off its foundation.” We are continually in the presence of ultrasonic and subsonic sound waves. Ultra—meaning “above/beyond,” are waves above our threshold of hearing and sub—meaning “beneath,” are waves beneath our threshold of hearing. Just because we can’t physically hear them doesn’t mean they don’t exist. They do!

Making History and Breaking the Sound Barrier

Here’s a quick bit of important history. The speed of sound is the distance traveled during a unit of time by a sound wave. In dry air at 20 °C (68° F), the speed of sound is 343.2 meters per second (1,126ft/s). This is 1,236 kilometers per hour (768 mph) or approximately one mile in five seconds.

In aerodynamics, the sound barrier usually refers to the point at which an aircraft moves from transonic to supersonic speed. The term came into use during World War II when a number of aircrafts started to encounter the effects of compressibility, a collection of several unrelated aerodynamic effects that “struck” their planes like an impediment to further acceleration. By the 1950s, new aircraft designs started to routinely “break” the sound barrier. 

Some common whips such as the bullwhip or spare-whip are able to move faster than sound: the tip of the whip breaks the sound barrier and causes a sharp crack—literally a sonic boom. Firearms since the 19th century have generally had a supersonic muzzle velocity.

It was in the X-1 that Chuck Yeager was credited with being the first man to break the sound barrier in level flight on 14 October 1947, flying at an altitude of 45,000 ft (13.7 km). He had christened his plane the Glamorous Glennis. The rocket-powered aircraft was launched from the bomb bay of a specially modified B-29 and glided to a landing on a runway.

Prior to Chuck Yeager’s success, there were many failed attempts to break the sound barrier most of which resulted in fatal or near fatal crashes. As the plane would reach the speed of sound, water molecules would form at the nose of the craft causing external pressure and push the aircraft backward. Vibration would cause the plane to begin to break up and nose dive or veer off uncontrolled resulting in tragedy.

The Sonic Boom

To break the sound barrier one would have to push through the resistance at the nose of the plane by thrusting forward. As the plane would begin to break the barrier, water vapor and pressure would move to the tail of the craft and as full penetration would occur, the barrier of resistance would become the catalyst of Sonic Thrust causing it to catapult forward and create what is known today as the Sonic Boom.

At the point of reaching the sound barrier one can either release the pressure and fall back where it is comfortable and predictable, or one can by thrust forward to where few have gone before and BREAK THROUGH into the sonic boom level.

The Subatomic Power of Praise

Praise means to commend, to applaud or magnify. For the Christian, praise to God is an expression of worship, lifting up and glorifying the Lord. It is an expression of humbling ourselves and centering our attention upon the Lord with heartfelt expressions of love, adoration and thanksgiving. High praises bring our spirit into a pinnacle of fellowship and intimacy between ourselves and God—it magnifies our awareness of our spiritual union with the Most High God.

Praise transports us into the realm of the supernatural and into the power of God. “Blessed are the people who know the joyful shout. They walk, O Lord, in the light of Your presence” (Ps. 89:15).

There are many actions involved with praise to God—verbal expressions of adoration and thanksgiving, singing, playing instruments, shouting, dancing, lifting or clapping our hands. Unpretentious praise and worship pleases the Lord. According to Scripture, the various expressions of praise bring blessing to the Lord. He eagerly awaits the fragrance of our affections, desiring to manifest His sweet presence and power in our midst. “… the true worshipers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth. For the Father seeks such to worship Him” (John 4:23).
