Psalm 149:6  Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a twoedged sword in their hand;

In order for us to completely see into the power of this verse we must first read the verses that immediately follow our text.  Ps. 149:7 To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people; 8 To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron; 9 To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Praise ye the LORD.  Our verse for today reminds us of the power of praise.  Our praise to the Lord is a defense.  Verses 7-9 explains so well the powerful defense our praise executes against the evils that lurk after us daily.  Let’s look closer at this verse of protection.  These praises are vocal praises.  These are praises in the form of shouts and testimony.  There are many other types of praise, but these defense praises are spoken from the mouth of the child of God.  Notice that they are high praises.  This word means exaltations.  In other words, these are shouts of praise given with much energy and strength.  My friend, this is a personal worship service.  Next we see they are holding a twoedged sword in their hand.  This represents our Bible.  So let’s get this picture in our vision; a child of God holding up the Word of God and shouting glorious praises unto the Lord.  To another child of God this is exhorting and encouraging.  It fires up the unction within the child of God when we witness someone in this type of praise.  But to the ungodly heathen it is a threat.  It is a threat to the devils.  This type praise makes the enemy nervous.  High praises are execution to evil.  Why do you think the Lord commands praise in our public life as well as our private life?  It is because praise is a defense!  Look back again at verses 7-9.  These praises are a smash in the head to evil!  At the end of verse 9 we are reminded what a great privilege it is to have this defense of praise; “this honour have all his saints.”  The child of God that seeks to live holy and clean before the Lord and those who are determined to live a sanctified life have a strong defense against the enemy.  I encourage you to use this weapon today.  Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a twoedged sword in their hand!!  Amen.

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God
Eph 2:8.
