Psalm 148 – Praise the LORD
I just want to give the Lord praise today for all that He keeps doing for me and for others in my life. Here is a video to get you in the mood to worship Him today.
Sometimes when we get bogged down with work, school, family, activities, personal issues etc etc, we can forget to give the Lord praise when we focus on our problems rather than on our blessings. There is so much going on in my life right now, but I don’t want to forget the good things that the Lord has done for me. Sometimes I focus on my frustrations when I shouldn’t, but when I start to sing, or pray, or focus on what the Lord has done in the little parts of my day to make things better rather than magnify my problems, I end up in a place where He becomes magnified and He gets all of my praise.
As a praise and worshiper, I have come to realize that there are times when it is difficult to praise the Lord when what you are going through feels like a pit situation; A place where you feel stuck, or where you feel there is no remedy for this situation. I have even noticed that there are moments when I forget words to a song because my mind is elsewhere thinking about a problem that is triggered by a memory out of nowhere that I’ve lost my focus on what I really should be doing which is to give the Lord praise.
These things simply happen because it’s spiritual warfare to be a War-shiper worshiper.
Worship is a lifestyle, but it’s also a spiritual weapon of warfare.
I purpose to give the Lord the highest praise and give it my all even when the going is rough sometimes. I think that when you’re able to worship the Lord even in your daily struggles, I believe that pure worship is born from these struggles as you continue to recognize the fragility of your humanity and the need of your Lord and Savior in whatever trial you face. So today, focus not on your worries, focus on giving the Lord praise. Start with saying thankyous and then move onto giving blessings and then move onto praise HIM.
God doesn’t want partial worshipers, He wants complete worshipers that will worship Him in Spirit and in Truth.
But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him.
God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”
It doesn’t mean that you deny your circumstances or your problems, but as a worshiper you choose to not over-exalt your trial before the Lord. Only the Lord can turn your situation around if you believe. Worship is born from Faith, so give all your faith in the One who is able to change whatever it is that you face today, Amen!
I have a song from Israel Hougton to minister to you today. It’s called Hosanna.
God bless you everybody!
