THE GIFT OF THIS DAY

Today is the beginning of a new day. God has given me this day to use as I will. I can waste it or use it for good. What I do today is important because I’m exchanging a day in my life for it. When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever, leaving in its place something that I have traded for it. I want it to be gain, not loss; good, not evil; success, not failure; in order that I shall not regret the price I paid for it.

                                                                                                                                                                                               

FROM THE PASTOR'S DESK:

PRAISE: The Secret to Faith ...

“I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth” (Psalm 34:1)

Aren’t you just beside yourself when you meet someone who is joyful in their problems? Drives most people crazy. How can anyone be happy when everything around them is falling apart? What do they have that other’s don’t? I have found that people like this have learned the secret of living lives of praise to God.

In order for us to walk in the Spirit, to walk in the victory of the resurrection, we need to continually give praise and thanks to the Father.Why? Because our praise life is closely connected to our faith life.

Praise is an expression of faith. Walking in faith should be who we are and not what we do. Corinthians 5:7 says, “we walk by faith and not by sight.” No matter what may happen, no matter what trial we may be going through, no matter what struggle we face, we should be walking with the Spirit.

Praise holds the answers to prayers and needs to be mixed with prayer and faith to produce results. Praise is believing God is working in your life even though you may not see it, understand it or even like it. To bring God’s Word to pass in your life you need to be a person of continual praise. You need to be thanking God continually for every blessing He brings to you. By doing so, you make Him aware of the place that He holds in your heart. When God is praise, you get blesses! Now there’s a formula that never fails! The saying, “pray, until something happens” is really all about praise. Although prayer is certainly important, praise is what bring your prayers to life. Praise is an expression of faith and faith produces results and praise is an act of faith!

Now, it’s certainly easy to worship and praise God when everything is going good and certainly harder when things are not. But the secret is to do it anyway. Your faith is not based on what you feel. Whether you feel like or not, praise Him, because God inhabits the praises of His people! You need to praise God regardless of your circumstances because praise is where God’s blessings are found! 2 Corinthians 2:14 says, “But thanks be to God, who always leads us as captives in Christ’s triumphal procession and uses us to spread the aroma of the knowledge of him everywhere.” This is what “our sacrifices of praise” really means! Hebrews 13:15 says, “Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise—the fruit of lips that openly profess his name.

Praise sets you free from your circumstances and call down God’s blessings on your life. The Bible says that God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory! And that’s reason enough to praise Him! So no matter what you are going through today, no matter what mountains you need to climb, give Him praise. Look at what He has already done for you. Learn to live a life of constant praise. Practice the presence of Christ daily and watch God’s miracle working power take hold in your life.
