And again, "Praise the Lord, all you nations! Praise him, all you people of the world!" Romans 15:11
It is good to give thanks to the Lord, to sing praises to your name, O Most High;Psalm 92:1
Oh give thanks to the Lord; call upon his name; make known his deeds among the peoples! Sing to him, sing praises to him; tell of all his wondrous works! Psalm 105:1-2
The mercy of the Lord is new every morning (Lamentation 3). Each day we can find a fresh place to begin. I don’t know about you but I woke up with a song in my heart. I feel this incredible joy. God is good all the times and some other times, he really reveals Himself to us, doesn't He? After everything you have been through in this lifetime, I after all the trials and tribulations, hurt and pain, sickness and disease, you woke up this morning. Glory! Regardless of what I have lined up for a day, I always wake up with joy. I can’t believe God is blessing me with another day. I have to tell you I enjoy life with everything that comes with it (defeat and success, health and illness). All of it is part of the “Living experience”. God decides to bless me with another day and I am going to rejoice in it. It is really hard to rejoice sometimes, but it a lesson that I had to learn. Every day is a blessing. You and I are witnessing history. We are a part of something great, and we know that it is going to be greater when we reach our destination (heaven). Once you understand this truth, you should be able to go through your afflictions with joy knowing what is awaiting is forever. The the tests of this life are temporary but reigning with God is eternal. Let us look forward tomorrow with joy. Praise the Lord!
Friend, I do not know what you are facing this morning, you can be in the middle of the biggest fight of your life. He is still the One who cares and the One who is able.There is no greater than Jehovah, Our God and Creator. There is no other like Him. Your sickness, disease, pain, lack, broken heart, trials and tribulations are not greater than the Almighty God. If you have made a place for Jesus Christ, then God is on your side. He wants to step in. His desire is for you to live a worry free life. He is at the door waiting for you to give Him the green light. It is time to pack the hurt and the pain out of your life, and make room for peace and joy. That is what the good news of Christ is all about. Choose life, choose joy, choose peace, and don't forget to praise the Lord!
Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies; Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's. Psalm 103:1-5
Praise the Lord!
