1 Chronicles 29:13
Now therefore, our God, we thank thee, and praise thy glorious name.
1 Peter 2:9
But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light.
This morning it came to me on the way to work that today has to be different.
Today, I will bless His Name continually.
Today, I will not focus on any problem, burden, or issue.
Today, I will not complain, murmur, or moan about my hurts or needs.
I have been taught all my life that when the praises go up then the blessings come down. And that God dwells in the praises of His people. All righty then, let the praise begin, so God can show up!
Today, just for today, this moment and space in time. This hour, this minute, this second, I need Him, O, I need Him.
So, I will praise today like never before. I will praise until He moves. I will praise until I feel His presence. I will praise Him if He remains silent because I know in my heart that He is still there looking out for me even if I don’t feel it!!
Psalms 150:2 says.. Praise him for his mighty acts: praise him according to his excellent greatness. I will praise Him for those mighty acts in my life!!
For the times I was so tore up and broken that I could not see His light. For the times I was dead wrong and He loved me anyway.
For the times I was doing everything I thought I was grown enough to do and He brought me out without AIDS or cancer!
For the times I was down to my very last penny and He made a way! I am not in the street or hungry!!
For the love I have in my life through friends and family – far and near.
For my children, who get on the tip of my very last nerve at times, but they are blessed, anointed, and healthy!!!
For my job…may not always have fun when I get here but in this economy, I am blessed to have one!!
Can you touch and agree with me today? Can you praise despite your situation? Can you join this praise party?
If you do, we will have started a praise chain today like none other!
Everything may not be going as I would it to. But I can look at my life and still see God all up in it!! I know you can too. I am convinced that if you look at your life, you will see the Hand of God along the line somewhere. When you do, when you catch the fire I feel, begin to praise right where you are!!!
Psalms 150:6 – Let every thing that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord.
Your are breathing right? Yep, you are! So praise with me today! Join the party and watch God move like never before!!!
If you have a praise report, tell me and I will do a post on these praise testimonies!! I know something is about to happen! My my my!!!
I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
Not sometimes when it’s good, but all times, even if it’s bad – I WILL PRAISE HIM!!! Party over here! Woo Woo!!!
Today I Will Praise Victoriously! The Blessing is Already Mine!
