God's Words For US
by Cecelia Lester
Let everything that has breath praise the LORD Psalm 150:5(NIV)
The psalmist says it succinctly. However, sometimes we feel that we have nothing to praise God for. We have myriad things to praise Him for.
Here is a list of a few of those things.
Did you sleep well last night? We should thank God when we do. We should thank Him when we happen to be awake late at night or early in the morning. He may want us to pray at those times.
Did you wake up this morning? You can praise God for his gift of another day.
Did you have breakfast this morning? You can praise God for the food He provided.
Did your car have enough gasoline to get you to your destination? You can praise God for giving you the funds to have fuel to allow you to get to your job or to the store or to your meeting.
Did you have a recent visit/ phone call from a family member? We all have been through a tough year and must praise God for those times when we can see our family members.
Are you and your family members in reasonably good health? We must praise God for this considering what we see and hear about in our world.
Did a friend pray for/with you recently? We should all give praise to our God for that friend and her caring enough for us to pray.
Prayer: Father God: We praise You for who You are-our Father, our Savior, our Friend. We give praise for all you have given us and have done for us. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.
