“By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name” Hebrews 13:15, KJV.
Praise Him for what He has already spoken about outcome. You’ve seen Him move before and you know He will do it again. He is the same yesterday, today and forever! Don’t wait to praise Him for what He’s going to do. Praise Him now.
Thank Jesus for what he’s done. Thank the Lord for being on your side. Praise Him for His peace and assurance that if you are going through something, it too will pass. Praise Him because He makes all things new. He’s making things right. Praise Him because He’s helping you move forward. Praise Him before you even have to do what He is asking of you because He is going to provide the power to accomplish it. Let your praise keep you focused on God, not on what you see. Let praise continue to remind you that you’re in covenant with a mighty God!
He is still with You. Your praise to God will show Him you are still before Him in faith, trusting Him. Whatever His will is, either way, praise Him because He knows what’s best for you. Before He even does it, before He even blesses you, praising Him will keep you preparing for it. It will keep you expecting it. It will keep you enjoying life. Praise Him now.
Prayer: Father, I won’t wait to praise You. I’ll praise You now. I thank you Jesus. Each day help me, on purpose, to praise You. I thank You for how You are going to use me. I praise You for changing this man’s life. I praise you for the many blessings in store. Before I even receive it, I see it by what You’ve spoken to me and I won’t wait to praise You. Hallelujah! In Jesus mighty name, Amen!
