Yet you are holy, enthroned on the praises of Israel.
Are you missing out on the most important thing in the Christian life?
According to Scriptures, worship is the most important thing we’re called to do as believers in Christ.
In our devotion today, I’d like to focus on one of the reasons why you should worship the Lord: Because it fortifies your faith.
Psalm 34:4-5 says, “I sought the LORD, and he answered me and delivered me from all my fears. Those who look to him are radiant, and their faces shall never be ashamed.”
When your faith needs a boost, look up! Praise, worship, singing spiritual songs, and expressing adoration to God all strengthen your faith and draw you nearer to Him.
Remember what our Scripture verse today tells us: God is “enthroned on the praises of Israel.” Wherever genuine praise is, so is God!
I am confident that taking your focus off of your troubles… and genuinely thanking God for what He has done in your life… will strengthen your faith and brighten your outlook on life!
TODAY, IN SPITE OF WHAT HAPPENS AT HOME OR WORK, FIND ONE THING FOR WHICH TO PRAISE THE LORD.
OUR THANKS TO YOU!
Do the words rested... peaceful... and refreshed describe you today? Or do the words stressed... rushed... and pressured better describe your way of life?
If you're like most Christians, you'd probably have to admit those last three words more accurately describe your life most of the time!
The good news is that it doesn't have to be this way... even when your life is one big pressure-cooker. And in my new book, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out, I'll show you why.
Based on the principles from Paul's letter to the Philippians and Psalm 23, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out will help you find true peace and rest in a world that is anything but peaceful and restful. It's the perfect "pause" button you need!
So please request your copy of Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out when you give online today! --Jack Graham
