Bethel’s latest album Victory is one that I personally have loved listening to and worshipping God with. One of the most listened to songs on the album is called “Raise a Hallelujah”. The song has an incredible back-story to and one that I believe we can learn a lesson from today.

Did you hear the story of Jaxon? At 2 years of age, the E.coli virus infected his kidney and he had to have a blood transfusion and go on dialysis. Just a few days before Christmas, Jaxon was in a critical condition and his parents did not think he would make it. Because of this, Jaxon’s parents reached out to their community for prayer and support.

Jaxon’s Dad who works for Bethel music was constantly in touch with his friends inside the church and worship leaders Jonathan & Melissa Helser were praying for a miracle to happen for their friend.

However, something indescribable happened to the Helsers, while they were praying for a miracle. A song suddenly came out of their mouths and they started to sing a powerful declaration against the giant Jaxon was facing.

“I raise a hallelujah, in the presence of my enemies
I raise a hallelujah, louder than the unbelief
I raise a hallelujah, my weapon is a melody
I raise a hallelujah, heaven comes to fight for me”

After medical treatment and countless prayers, Jaxon received a miracle from God. Jaxon was able to go home. His body in full health. Hallelujah!

At The Greenhouse, we love hearing answers to prayer. We worship God in the good times and in the bad, knowing that he is a good God. We pray every morning for God’s Kingdom to come in this house, but also for him to move in powerful ways in the guests who we know are facing incredibly hard situations like Jaxon and his family.

We raise a hallelujah knowing that there is a great power behind praise and worship as we lift up our God. We should never underestimate the power of our praises. We need to keep on worshipping even if we go through the trials, even in the middle of the storm. When we raise a hallelujah in these times, it is very often you will experience God’s miracles.

Psalm 34 can teach us that we should praise the Lord at all times. Good and bad. Take a listen and Raise your own Hallelujah for your own situation.
