The Bible says in Psalm 50:23,“Those who sacrifice thank offerings honor me, and to the blameless I will show my salvation.”
There should always be praise offerings on our lips. This sacrifice of praise is very, very important to be bold in Him and sing His praises, ‘Jesus is enough’ no matter what happens whether evil or good things happen, whether it is a time of crisis or good times, whether we are deserted or gathered. “I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth.” (Psalm 34:1)
When we thus offer the sacrifice of praise and praise Him, “the Lord who is enthroned in praises” (Psalm 22:3) will rise within us and embolden us. He will lead us to follow His path. All our worries, burdens and tears will flee. The presence of God will fill us completely.
Dearly beloved, stop spending your time in grumbling and finding fault, but thank the Lord remembering one by one, the good things He has done for you. Then a great joy will fill you in the midst of the afflictions. The Lord will perfect everything for you (Psalm 138:8). Hence don’t be miserable wondering why afflictions come to the righteous but remember the great things that the Lord does for you and rejoice in Him by praising Him.
Loving Heavenly Father,
I remember how graciously You have lead me till this day even though I had many shortcomings. I praise you dear Father for your immense love and care for me. Please fill me with your Holy Spirit and place your words in my mouth so that I will praise you and honor You each moment of my life. Bless us dear Lord so that our Joy might be full.
In Your matchless name I pray,
