Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise—the fruit of lips that openly profess His name. Hebrews 13:15
Often, we don’t embrace a heart of thankfulness. We seek God and ask Him to provide for our needs. But in missed opportunities to simply say, "thank you", we neglect to begin our prayers in praise. God is worthy of ALL of our love. He shows how to recognize the gift of His presence. He opens our eyes to welcome each day and provides strength to keep on going...
Many things in life should inspire a heart of PRAISE. The “act of our will which flows out of awe and reverence for our Creator” allows us to experience a deeper union with God and draw close to a heart of content. It welcomes peace and opens the door for HOPE to be discovered. It blesses us with joy that we need.
The Bible says, “Give thanks in all circumstances.” Sometimes it's hard to do. But when we faithfully recognize God‘s loving guidance, He allows us to experience His gifts of gratefulness. He opens our eyes to the waking of His will and helps us find strength from the power of His love.
God reminds us who’s in charge of our days. Shouldn’t this be reason enough to praise Him? Our loving Father is deserving of so much more than what we give...We must never become too busy to humble our hearts and simply say, “Thank you for taking such good care of ME!
Dear God, help us remember to begin EACH day in praise. Thank you for waking us in opportunity to open our eyes for what You provide. Fill us with the power of Your everlasting love and teach us to faithfully TRUST. Thank you for helping us remember You are worthy of our praise! Help us find peace as we’re led by Your will and open our hearts to remember why we must give You thanks in ALL circumstances. Thank you, Lord. Thank you! Amen
