Praise Him Anyhow!

Psalm 34:1
I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.

I am here to declare unto you my dear reader that GOD has everything in control. Do you hear what I say? GOD HAS EVERYTHING IN CONTROL! In a world of seemingly uncertainty when economics are at its lowest point, GOD STILL PROMISES TO TAKE CARE OF YOU! In utter darkness and misfortune, God still requires a YET PRAISE!

As I was reading Psalm 34:1, the Bible clearly tells us to BLESS THE LORD AT ALL TIMES! It did not say some of the time, it did not say to bless Him when your gainfully employed, but it commands us to bless Him at ALL TIMES and let His praise continually be in your mouth. The mere fact that you have two eyes to read this blog and two hands to type is enough to Praise God. If God never does anything else, He literally has already done enough for allllll mankind to eternally praise Him! So what they fired you on your job and your unemployment has been contested. God promises that He will supply all of your needs according to His riches in glory. So what you lost a love one. Its ok to cry and be sad for a season, however PRAISE GOD in the midst of your pain and watch God send you the peace that passeth all understanding. Repossession of your car? Foreclosed home? Is there ANYTHING TOO HARD for GOD??????? Absolutely positively no. NO! There is nothing to hard for God to solve.

As we are on the brink of a new year (2009) let us all continue to press toward the mark of the high calling which is in Christ Jesus Our Lord! Sure its easier said then done (especially when you come home and find that all of your things have been put out on the curb by the sheriff. Yeah the doctor told you that you only have months or weeks to live. Who’s report will YOU BELIEVE? We will believe the report of the Lord! Child of God, Praise Him anyhow. You hear me. PRAISE HIM ANYWAY! Through hard trials, will to live holy for the Lord. Through tribulations, will to serve the Lord. Through your tears, heartache and pain, SERVE THE LORD AND PRAISE HIM ANYHOW!

I pray to God that there was something that was said in this simple post tonight that has encouraged you to keep holding on, to keep pressing on, to NOT give up but to stay in the race. God hears your silent tears. God see’s your hurt. He knows what your going through because God (who is the Lord Jesus Christ) is 100% Human (so in essence he knows what pain literally feels like) yet being 100% GOD can take all the pain away and wipe all of those tears from your eyes. Be encouraged my brother and sister today, for weeping may endure for a night, but JOY comes in the morning.
