Praising God – Encouragement for the Soul
Praising God – Encouragement for the Soul – This morning, while reading my Bible, my eyes fell on the following verse.
- Psalm 9:1-2 (KJV)
“I will praise thee, O Lord, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy marvellous works.”
I will be glad and rejoice in thee: I will sing praise to thy name, O thou most high.”
If you are familiar with this blog, you know I love to praise God. However, I know that going through a difficult situation and speaking praises may seem like a challenging task but, praising God can become a blessing to you.
If you find it difficult to speak praises, think back to a time in your life when there was great joy or a time that you felt close to God. Remember, all good things come from our Father in heaven.
When I was a young girl, I felt extremely close to the Lord. I read my Bible often and talked to God. As I grew older and did go through difficult times, I would remember that closeness to him and that memory did help me and give me strength during that difficult time. Looking back, I believe that God knew that I would need that memory of him to endure the painful times.
Open your Bible and your heart and read the scripture verse above again. Reading your bible and spending more time alone with God will bring encouragement to your soul. You will also become more hopeful about your situation and the future. God does not want you to live in fear. He wants peace and comfort for his children.
Also, don’t forget to tell others about God. There are people everywhere that don’t really know him. Just think about what they are missing.
Great is our God. Praise him with all your heart!
