As a prolific author and passionate pastor, Bill Johnson’s series on the power of praise was received with passion for God’s presence and power. This transcription of audio messages was given to an audience of thousands, touching individual hearts, souls, and minds to hunger to for God’s presences in everyday life.
Not only will listeners feel as if they are sitting among those present when Pastor Johnson delivered this series of sermons, but they will also sense a hunger to know God and change their world through the power of praise. God desires to pour out his presence upon us, but we must learn to seed the heavens with our worship. As we ask for rain in the time of the latter rain, God will honor our requests and drench us with his Spirit.
The two sessions include:
Seeding the Clouds
Honoring the Point
Changing Your World: The Effect of Praise on Our Surroundings takes listeners into the sanctuary where they receive teaching that creates a desire to learn how to change their world by worshiping the Lord with passion and priority. Unpacking Psalm 84, Bill Johnson teaches what it means to long for God with our entire body, soul, and spirit: “How lovely is Your tabernacle, O Lord of hosts! My soul longs, yes, even faints for the courts of the Lord; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God” (vs. 1-2). Listeners will also learn what it means to honor the point of others, learning to press into breakthrough even while under a cloud of oppression.
