The Sacrifice Of Praise
There is a scripture that has been weighing heavy in my spirit, over and over again this last year.
It's the one that reads like this:
Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise to God, proclaiming our allegiance to His name. - Hebrews 13:15
The sacrifice of praise has been my praise this past year and especially lately.
It's when we praise Him and thank Him and honor Him even in the midst....
In the midst of really painful things.
In the midst of hurtful words and hurtful people.
In the midst of those who rejoice in someone else's suffering.
In the midst of things we don't understand and when we can't see the light of dawn.
In the midst of friends who betray us and who say unkind things.
In the midst of unfortunate circumstances and situations.
In the midst of sorrow so great there are no words to define it properly.
Offer Him the highest praise beautiful friends...
Through your heartache and suffering and grief.
Praise Him in the midst of it all.
Because soon ..
Everything is going to turn in your favor.
Doors are going to open and open wide.
Beautiful friendships will unfold.
Divine connections are coming to your family.
Provision and prosperity and purpose are going to fall upon your household.
Healing will be your portion.
Soon your heart will sing and your spirit will soar as the Father reveals every good and
perfect gift He has in store for you.
He promises us that He will work all things together for our good and His glory.
Even those things we may not understand right now.
Soon, once the Father has His way and at the appointed time, He is going to work all things in your life and mine, for our good and for His glory.
And His word does not return to Him void.
So over the weekend while you are busy blessing your family, offer it up to Him.
Don't hold back...
Beautiful things are in store for you and your family.
Our job is to praise Him in the midst and to simply trust.....
