Live to the Praise of His Grace and Glory

Live to the Praise of His Grace and Glory

My heart is full of all the things I want to share with you. In short: do not go about your day without marveling and embracing the grace of God. It’s amazing and it’s been brought to you by the blood of Christ. So do not put it in vain without accepting and receiving it. Not only for your salvation but for your everyday enjoyment and encouragement. Because you are meant to live to the praise of his grace and…

Praise Your Way Through Storms

Praise Your Way Through Storms

Storms are inevitable in life. So one of the most important life skills is to learn to handle those storms. Storms are also, maybe even especially, inevitable in Christian’s lives. In fact, I think it is a faith skill to learn to handle storms. I believe we can handle anything with faith. Without faith, we are lost in the storms of life. With faith, we are secure in Christ no matter what happens and no matter how devastating the storm…

Praying and Praising the Lord (with Psalm 34)

Praying and Praising the Lord (with Psalm 34)

Today I’m interacting with Psalm 34 (MSG). Join me in praying and praising the Lord and blessing his name. There’s nothing better in this world. Nothing better than being a child of God and knowing that God has always been taking care of you and he is helping you right now and he will continue to do it. No exceptions. Always and forever. Join me in praying and praising the Lord I bless God every chance I get; my lungs expand with his…

Embrace It with Grace and Praise

Embrace It with Grace and Praise

This week I have not been enthusiastic at the gym. Somehow, I’ve been dragging my feet to get there and while there I’ve not done my best. There hasn’t been any spring in my steps for sure. While exercising today, I was wondering what was going on and what I could do to lift the veil of cheerlessness. And then I remembered. The antidote to anything trying to drag us down is praise. Whatever it is, we need to embrace…

8 Reasons to Praise the Lord Anytime

8 Reasons to Praise the Lord Anytime

It’s Monday. Hence it’s time to remind us of the things that really matter and keep us going no matter what. It’s time to held our two hands open to receive all of the Lord as Alan Redpath describes faith. It’s time to believe that this Monday morning blues is not all there is. I’ve always said there are always lots of reasons to praise the Lord anytime. These two verses from the first letter to Thessalonians sum up them…

Jesus Blesses

Jesus Blesses

How are you doing today? Are you feeling blessed and bursting with eternal joy? Or are you feeling under the weather? No matter how you feel you should know Jesus blesses you, loves you, and prays for you. The Bible tells us so. Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. (Romans 8:34, NIV) Jesus even left…

From Distress to Deliverance

From Distress to Deliverance

Whenever something is repeated many times, it’s usually worth of paying attention to the matter. Today I found the same verse repeated four times in one psalm. Time to pay attention. What could be so important? Could it have anything to do with my life? Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love     and his wonderful deeds for mankind. (Psalm 107:8/15/21/31, NIV) Thanksgiving is so important. God’s love is so magnificent. God’s care is so wonderful. I…

Nothing Better than the Love of God

Nothing Better than the Love of God

Do you know how wide, how long, how high, and how deep God’s love is? I hope you, at least, have had a glimpse of it. Even a glimpse of God’s love will knock your socks off. There’s nothing like it. And there’s nothing better. Don’t take my word for it. Read what David wrote in one of his psalms: 3 Your unfailing love is better than life itself;     how I praise you! 4 I will praise you as long as I…

How to Bless the Lord

How to Bless the Lord

Have you ever wondered what it means to bless the Lord? Many, many times in the Psalms we are told to bless the Lord. What are we supposed to do? The Amplified Bible gives us an eye-opening answer: Bless (affectionately, gratefully praise) the Lord, O my soul; and all that is [deepest] within me, bless His holy name! Bless (affectionately, gratefully praise) the Lord, O my soul, and forget not [one of] all His benefits. (Psalm 103:1-2, AMP, emphasis added,*)…

The Power of Worship

The Power of Worship

Do you know what to do when your inner accuser blames you for this or that? Do you know how to show the door to the devil? Do you know how to deal with doubts or inconveniences? Just worship. For real. The power of worship is beyond this world. For real. What a stack of blessing you have piled up     for those who worship you, Ready and waiting for all who run to you     to escape an unkind world. (Psalm…
