Receive God's Warm Love Through Reflection

Praise God

on November 23, 2013

“Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth.  Worship the LORD with gladness; come before Him with joyful songs.  Know that the LORD is God. It is He who made us, and we are His; we are His people, the sheep of His pasture.  Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise; give thanks to Him and praise His name.  For the LORD is good and His love endures forever; His faithfulness continues through all generations.” -Psalm 100:1-5

What is your favorite form of worship? How do you worship God? I love music, but sometimes just a quiet prayer to God or a peaceful hike in a beautiful natural setting inspires me to praise Him. I feel content, happy, blessed, joyful, in awe, protected, hopeful, and cared for when I praise Him!

May you praise God and focus on Him. He can help you to focus on the best in life.

Here’s a nice reflection on praise by Girlfriends in God post.

“In Africa, there is a fruit called the “taste berry” that literally changes a person’s taste buds so that everything tastes sweet and pleasant. Sour fruit, even if eaten several hours after the taste berry, becomes sweet and delicious.

Praise is the “taste berry” for every Christian. Praise is more than emotions or spoken words. Praise is more than singing songs or lifting up hands in worship. True praise is the celebration of God, His power, His works, and His greatness. Praise is the fruit of a committed heart and the tool of a life completely surrendered to God.

When we are discouraged, praise reminds us that there is hope in God.

When we are afraid, praise reminds us that no matter what happens, God is with us.  

When we are lost, praise reminds us that God has already been where He is leading us.

When we are confused, praise reminds us that heaven is not in a panic.

Right now, girlfriend, lift up your head, and praise your God. He is with you and He is more than enough.”
