1 Chronicles 20:11 Yours, Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor, for everything in heaven and earth is yours. Yours, Lord, is the kingdom; you are exalted as head over all.
Let’s take a day and really focus on praising God for all that He is! Praise will increase your faith beyond anything you can imagine! Praise not only blesses God that you are recognizing Him for Who He is, but it also reminds you of who He is!
If you go to church today, think of every word you are singing as you praise Him. Don’t allow yourself to sink into autopilot as you sing praise to Him, think about what you are saying, and let it pour out from your heart! If you are not in church today as you read this, no matter what day of the week it is I would like to encourage you to turn on some praise music and sing your heart out to God praising Him for His goodness and majesty and grace!
I am sure if you take a look around today and you hear or read the news, it is disheartening at the wickedness that is going on in the world today. So much hate and despair! That is all the more reason to remind yourself of who God is! Praise Him so you will increase your faith! Praise Him to bless His heart! He knows you! He sees you and He cares about all that you are facing! Praise Him that He is a God who is faithful and He will fulfill all that He has promised! Praise Him that He will give you strength! Praise Him that He is a God who heals and a God who mends our broken hearts and carries us when we just can’t make it another day due to the heartaches we bear!
The toughest thing to do when you are overwhelmed with hurt can be the thought of singing praise to God, but it is also the most healing thing. If you are hurting, pour your heart out to Him, praise Him that He sees and that He will carry you through, and tell Him about all of your hurts and pains. Ask Him to help you with any anger that has been brought on by your situation and ask Him to comfort your heart! Know that He keeps track of your every tear and you matter and He is working on your behalf to see you through and to help you become all He created you to be! He loves you ~ He has heard your prayers! Please pray for others today that you know are overwhelmed and broken-hearted as well!
