Let Everything That Breathes Praise the Lord!

Psalm 150.pngPraise the Lord. Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens. Praise him for his acts of power, praise him with the sounding of the trumpet, praise him with the harp and lyre, praise his with timbrel and dancing, praise him with the strings and pipe, praise him with resounding cymbals. Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord.                                         Psalm 150

Sacrifice thank offering to God. Tell of his works with songs of joy!  Bearing your circumstances bravely even thanking God for them, which is the highest form or praise. God has been training you and I in the discipline of thankfulness for a long time. Yet we at times still find it hard to thank him for our own suffering or for others we know who are suffering. Sometimes we are able to do this, and when we do, we find that we become closer to God our Father. Thanking God for adversity requires a deep level of trust in his goodness, his mercy, and his love. People who are leaning on their own understanding cannot achieve this depth of trust. As you look to the scriptures to Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. We are learning to endure our circumstances bravely with thankfulness and we have experienced personal benefits from this. But there is more–much more! Your grateful acceptance of adversity has major repercussions far beyond ourselves :in heaven as well as on earth. Besides having Power to weaken spiritual stronghold of evil, your sacrifice of thanksgiving rings bells of joy throughout heavenly realms. On earth, our patient endure of suffering seeds out ripples of good tidings in every-widening circles to strengthen and encourage God’s people. So in every and all circumstances in your life or in mine we should always Praise the Lord!

Sing and Dance To The Lord

Psalm 147 a.jpgPraise the Lord. How good it is to sing praises to our God, how pleasant and fitting to praise him! The Lord builds up Jerusalem; he gathers the exiles of Israel. He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. He determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name. Great is our Lord and mighty by name. Great is our Lord and mighty in power, his understanding has no limit. The Lord sustains the humble but casts the wicked to the ground. Sing to the Lord with grateful praise; make music to our God on the harp.                                                       Psalm 147:1-7

Jesus is the firm foundation on which you and I can dance and sing praises and continually celebrate knowing Him, just as our soul long to. There are times, however, we feel earthbound and weighed down with all of our cares and concerns. However when we begin to worship Jesus in spirit and truth those cares seems to be less and we feel free to dance. At times when my problems seem so difficult for me to bear, I begin to thank Jesus for who he is and more important for loving me. He never promise any of us that this life of ours here on earth would ever be easy, and some days seem to be difficult to get through, however begin to rejoice. When you feel like crying-rejoice, when you are angry-rejoice, when you feel frustrated-rejoice, when you are in pain from illness or from being hurt-rejoice, no matter what you are going thru in your life-REJOICE in knowing the Risen Lord Jesus Christ! Go to Him in prayer to Be Still and Know He is God (Psalm 46:10) Breathe in the Grace of God knowing his love for you, Breathe out your Praises to Him for who he is, and when you do, you begin to focus totally on Jesus, and the worries that you carry on your shoulders will be light as a feather. Sing loud, God doesn’t care how you sound, dance as freely as you want to, all along just thinking of who he is “The Great I Am”  He is the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end, who is, and who was, and who is to come the Almighty.         (Revelation 1:8)

God Cares

Psalm 149.pngPraise the Lord, Sing to the Lord a new song, his praise in the assembly of his faithful people. Let Israel rejoice in their Maker, let the people of Zion be glad in their King. Let them praise his name with dancing, and make music to him with tumbrel and harp. For the Lord takes delight in his people, he crowns the humble with victory. Let his faithful people rejoice in this honor and sing for joy on their beds.

(Psalm 149:1-5)

You were planned for God’s pleasure. The moment you were born into the world, God was there as an unseen witness, smiling at your birth. He wanted you alive, and your arrival gave him great pleasure. God did not need to create you, but he chose to create you for his own enjoyment. You exist for his benefit, his glory, his purpose, and his delight. Bringing enjoyment to God, living for his pleasure, is the first purpose of your life. When you fully understand this truth, you will never again have a problem with feeling insignificant.

(Section taken from the Purpose Drive Life by Rick Warren)

I am sure you as well as all of us here on earth have listen to the lies that Satan has told thru other people. Things like, you are not worth it, you won’t amount to anything, God does not love you, you are a failure, and the list of all the lies Satan has told is just that lies. You are worth it, you are a precious child of the Most High King himself who is Jesus Christ, he loves you so very much and his love for all of his children is unconditional and you do matter so much to him. His love for you is so deep that he spread out his arms to die for you and my friend that is true unconditional love, remember when someone is tell you lies, don’t believe it because Satan is the father of lies, and he does not want us to hear the truth and that is God cares.
