The Old Testament psalms are full of exhortations that we should praise and give thanks to our God CONTINUOUSLY. (sound impossible in the middle of a crisis time? When you are faced with calamity, death, illness, personal suffering?)
Hebrews 13:15 Therefore by Him let us continuously offer the sacrifice of praise of the fruit of our lips giving thanks in His Name.
Two simple statements I am suggesting to you today will be of help. I KNOW because I testify they helped and blessed me in this past week. ‘Thanks be to our Saviour Lord.”
- I AM REDEEMED BY THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB. I AM REDEEMED and I KNOW I AM.
- THIS EARTH IS NOT MY FINAL HOME.
No 1 was silently and deeply in my spirit and heart as I faced a medical test. It is a song and rose like a ‘bubble’ and He was definitely the focus and Presence I found.
Number 2…….A young technician asked me why I ‘smiled’ and gently I told her THIS EARTH IS NOT MY FINAL HOME.
These simple yet profound stored statements in my heart and spirit helped me. I pray that I will and you too will learn that it is indeed continuously possible to carry with us Praise and Thanksgiving in our lives and hearts.
At the CROSS the Work was FINISHED. Jesus is LORD! Let’s proclaim it everywhere.
Blessings and Peace and abundance of Joy to you!
