"Power In Your Shout!!"

based on 77 ratings
Jun 21, 2004

Summary: We as believers need to realize that there’s power in true praise & worship!"

I. Introduction:

In this particular text, Blind Bartemeus’ Shout & faith caused a powerful move of God and caught Jesus’ attention, which in the end caused a miraculous healing and gave Blind Bartemeus’ his sight.

There was power in Bartemeus’ shout! And I am convinced today that we can have the same power & impact in our shout & faith as Bartemeus’ had back then, many years ago...

So, What do I have to do to get a power packed shout??

II. Body: 3 ways to a "Power packed" shout:

A.) Have faith in God beforehand & shout BEFORE God makes the move.

- Bartemeus’ shout was powerful because he shouted for Jesus before he even got there.

-Vs. 47: "He heard..." Before he even saw God in the physical state the Bible says he began shouting because he heard that Jesus was coming & he had faith enough to believe!

- Like Bartemeus, sometimes we need to take the little bit of faith we have & walk out on it and begin to shout for what he yet WILL do!!

- A little shout goes a long way!!!

- Talk about the woman in Bible with issue of blood & how her persistance paid off.

- Begin to shout for what God yet WILL do!!!

B.) Ignore The Crowd!

- (vs. 48: "He shouted all the more...")Even though the crowd told him to be quiet, Bartemeus still shouted!

- You gotta ignore the crowd & the playahaters!!

- People will do anything they can to stop your praise!!

- Does it really take ALL of that??

- People a lot of times don’t like to see other people getting blessed & praising God for it!

- People know your GLORY but they don’t know your STORY!

- Be a LEADER, not a FOLLOWER!

- You’ve got to move beyond what people think about you & bless God anyhow!

C.) Take affirmitive action off of your shout...

- (vs. 50: "Throwing his cloak aside...") Bartemeus took action! He didn’t just sit back & wait for God to do something, he met him 1/2 way!!

- Sometimes you gotta meet God 1/2 way!!!

- Take an active approach to your shout!

- Matt. 17:20

- A little goes a long way with God!!

III. Preach The Text:

- Set up story & scenario of text.

- Encourage & exhort the people of God that there’s power in your shout & to move beyond your current situation & give God praise for what he yet WILL do!

- Also encourage to not let the devil steal your shout!!

IV. Conclusion:

-Recap main points.

Talk about it...

So, what did you think?


Thank you.
