I was lying in the bed and did not want to get out.  I was depressed; it had been three days.   I want to assure you that this had never happened before.  The devil had been trying to find something to get me to worry and doubt and finally he had come up with something.   I was so distraught my plans were to never get out of the bed.  I heard a small sound in my heart.  It was like a whisper:  “Praise!”  I was thinking praise?  I don’t really feel like praising…but the more I thought about it; I felt it couldn’t hurt anything so I said a couple of “Hallelujahs!”  It’s funny now.

Then I tried it again…next I knew I was stomping on the floor praising God for ALL that He has done for me!   Well, I assure you that problem can’t bother me again.  IT was over a decade ago.  Praise will turn around that situation that you face…the one that’s bothering you.    Now here’s the reason: because the God we serve is a good God who will assure our victories, give us strength, pours His unconditional love on us and will fight all battles for us…There’s a lot of reasons to praise Him! 

 

I attended a very small quiet Lutheran church.  It was extremely quiet, but it was a place of worship.  The worship was and is still very beautiful.  We were taught to glorify God.  Fast forward to my being in a full blown praising church where no one minds praising God!  But…let’s talk about being at home; away from the church.  When we wake up…there ought to be time spent giving God thanks and praise.  I assure you that if you can make this a habit your life will change.  Praise opens the doors to Blessings Unlimited…that’s a store we all want to shop in.  (smiles)  So, I encourage you today to pull your praise out, dust it off if you have to and from your heart…just praise Him!

I will love thee, O Lord, my strength. The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower. I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies. — Psalm 18:1-3 KJ
