Praise Your Way Through!
It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God. My friend, God is faithful. At your lowest points of life, He has always been there for you. When no one could be found, you could always depend on the Lord. When the storms of life were raging, God was your anchor. When the enemy attempted to destroy you, God was your protection. When your marriage, your ministry, your home, your children, or even your job was in jeopardy, God granted an unexplainable peace. He is Faithful and Just. Just think back. It was no one else but God!
Today, I have been commissioned to come and encourage you in the Lord. My friend, what are you facing today? What dilemma do you find yourself involved in? You have tried everything and everyone and the results have not changed. The Lord desires to free you from the turmoil of this life. When your surroundings seem threatening, and everything is [seemingly] against you … Praise Your Way Through! Stop complaining. Stop griping. Do you not know who your Father is? Your Father responds to praise and worship, not whining and griping. The Bible declares in 1 Chronicles 29:13 - Now therefore, our God, we thank thee, and praise thy glorious name. Exalt the name of Jesus Christ. Let your enemies know who your Father is.
My brother, my sister, lift up your head. Walk with upright shoulders. You have no reason to walk with a depressed demeanor. God is on your side. The Bible declares in Psalms 37:25 - I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread. Through every attack of the enemy, Praise Your Way Through! When your finances get low, Praise Your Way Through! When tomorrow seems uncertain, Praise Your Way Through! When your place of employment is hellish, Praise Your Way Through! When your relationship is on the ropes. Praise Your Way Through! When your friends laugh in your face, Praise Your Way Through!
Point to Ponder: Have you ever praised during testing times? —— Now would be a great time to start!
