Zechariah 10:7 - "And they...shall be like a mighty man, and their heart shall rejoice as through wine..."
Joy and praise together release strength on the inside of you and power on the outside. Psalm 22:3 says God inhabits our praises. When God's presence begins to come into our midst, our enemies fall back. they can't stand the presence of God.
You know what happens when people drink wine -- they lose their inhibitions. That's what happened to the disciples on the day of Pentecost. They had been hiding out only a few days before, but when the Holy Spirit came upon them, suddenly they were on the streets acting so wild, everyone thought they had been drinking.
God wants us free. He doesn't want you bound up with traditions or fear of what other people might think. He wants you free to leap and praise and sing. He wants you to be free to rejoice. He wants you so free that other people won't understand it -- they'll just want it!
