Topic: The Essence Of The Praise Of Faith [Seeds of Destiny Friday March 30, 2018]
Scripture: In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do unto me. Psalm 56:4
Thought For The Day: No matter the situation of your life, God is the reason things are not worse than the way they are now.
It has been discovered that many people only praise God when something good happens to them like a promotion, an intervention, a healing or deliverance. Just as it is very good to appreciate God for what He has done, it is important to know that there is a higher level of praise that is more than just praising God for what He has already done. It is called the praise of faith.
Now, what does the praise of faith do?
1. The praise of faith celebrates discoveries in the Word of God. The revealed Word of God is enough to praise God. (Jeremiah 15:16).
2. Faith praises God to let Him know that He is the reason things are not worse than the way they are currently. In Acts 16:25, Paul and Silas sang praises to God even though they had been lashed and thrown into prison. They praised God because they were alive; it is possible that they probably would have been killed. God was the reason their situation was not worse than it was.
Beloved, no matter the situation of your life, God is the reason things are not worse than the way they are now. Things could have been worse but God prevented the devil from having his way in your life. Therefore, praise God unconditionally.
Remember This: No matter the situation of your life, God is the reason things are not worse than the way they are now.
1. Determine to praise God for who He is and not only what he can do.
Prayer: O LORD, baptize me with the Spirit of praise. Help me to praise You for Who You are, LORD, Jesus’ Name.
