Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord!
Psalm 150:6 NKJV
It's Sunday and most of us will be at church today. Many of us will hear this psalm read during our opening devotional period and clap and praise as the minister instructs us through repetition of this verse. Fair enough =)
I woke up with this verse in my Spirit as God reminded me that I always have a reason to praise Him. Not because someone is telling me to praise Him but because every moment of everyday God is ever-present in my life and He proves that with every breath that I take.
Acts 17:28 tells us that it's in Him that we live, move, and have our being. Without God we fail to exist or thrive. So no matter what you've been facing remember you always have a reason to praise.
Acknowledge Him for all He is doing in your life, for the things that are working, and even the lessons you're learning from all the things that aren't! As you do this your attitude will shift. God will be magnified and your problems will decrease in their weight on your heart! Will the problems disappear? Probably not but praising gives room for you to separate yourself from the issue and recognize it's not all bad!
I'm grateful for the breath you have in your body right now! Praise Him and watch the atmosphere around you shift!
Have a blessed day!
