Mar. 1st Great News
Bible Reading: 2 Chron. 20:20-22; Ps. 113:3
Ps. 113:3 ‘from the rising of the sun to its going down the Lord’s name is to be praised’
This is the greatest news you will have heard in recent times because it will keep bringing you blessings. As the new month begins, it is my prayer that your heart will be flooded with a deep understanding of the power of thanksgiving and praise.
When King Jehoshaphat was surrounded with an army like the sand on the seashore, God directed his attention to this great and powerful truth. He ‘appointed singers’ in the face of battle to ‘praise God’s holiness’.
Disregard terrible or threatening circumstances and focus on God. Give Him thanks and praise and stop complaining, protesting and murmuring. You can pray amiss but you can’t praise amiss and staggering testimonies come from decided praise.
Thanksgiving and praise will launch you into a life of endless miracles; loose you from sweat and start you off winning. The ‘hotline’ to God’s throne and the secret to strange blessings is strong praise.
• Thank God for glorious, perfect and personalized gifts awaiting you and yours in 2015. Jam. 1:17; 1 Cor. 2:9
• Pray that Christian’s faith will not fail in adversity but wax stronger and stronger. Lk. 22:31-32; 2:20
Thought for the day:
Thanksgiving and praise are not an emotion but a decision.
