Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.
Life is not always sunshine and flowers. There are days when bad things happen, days when sadness creeps in, or when we just feel lonely. In these times we need to lift our head toward God and give praise to our Savior. Thank him for all the good in your life. Put your hope in him and rely on him to get you through even the darkest of days.
I will extol the Lord at all times; his praise will always be on my lips.
No matter what is going on in your life keep praising the Lord! Praise invites God’s presence into your situation and gets your focus off of you and onto God. The more you praise God the better you’ll feel about the things that are getting you down because praise defeats the enemy.
I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands.
Prayer should begin with praise, acknowledging God for who he is, he is worthy of all praise. Focus your thoughts on him alone. Focus on his characteristics and what he means to you. Lift your hands toward your heavenly Father as you pray in Jesus’ name.
Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.
Moms deserve to be appreciated for all they do for their families. Much of what they do is unseen and undervalued. They make sacrifices without hesitation all in the name of love. Give thanks to God for your mom and all the God fearing moms and ask him to bless them in a special way.
Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Selah.
We all need to start waking up with praise on our lips, focused on God. Start your day right and receive the blessings the Lord has in store for you today. Each day is loaded with blessings of joy, peace, mercy, grace, and salvation!
