From "The Word For You Today" Devotion...

"Praise breaks chains and opens doors: it's the strategy for victory. Satan will try to stop you from praising God because he knows: (a) the importance of praise, Ps 48:1 (b) the healing effects of praise, Isa 61:3 and (c) the power of praise in times of crisis, 2Ch 20:22. Don't wait until the battle is over to shout; go to war with the praise of God on your lips and watch Him turn your situation around."

I'm praising God this day, and I'm carrying that praise with me as a banner, as I face the battles of this day!
