But The Lord Is Faithful

2 Thessalonians 3:3 NIV, “But the Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen you and protect you from the evil one.”

Everyday we can trust God to be with us and protect us from the fiery darts that the enemy tries to throw our way. The weapons he attempts to form against us will not prosper (Isaiah 54:17). The Lord goes before us and He will strengthen us and uphold us (Deuteronomy 31:8, Isaiah 41:10). Look to Him, and lay every concern you have before Him in prayer. Pray without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5:17).

The Lord is faithful and His faithfulness to us will never end. Offer Him thanksgiving for this new day that He has made (Psalm 118:24). Praise Him through every trial. Trust Him even when you don’t understand (Proverbs 3:5). May the peace of God rule and reign in your heart through Jesus Christ our Lord (Colossians 3:15).

Let Everything Praise The Lord

Psalm 150:6 NIV, “Let everything that has breath praise the LORD. Praise the LORD.”

For some reason, when I read this verse, the first thing that came to my mind was butterflies. I wanted to know how they breathe. Per http://www.butterflywebsite.com, “Adult butterflies, as well as caterpillars, breathe through a series of tiny openings along the sides of their bodies, called “spiracles.” From each spiracle, a tube called a “trachea” carries oxygen into the body.”

We, along with butterflies, have breath in our bodies. We were created to give praise to our God. I heard someone once say that, “Praise is our way in, but it’s also our way out.” No matter where we find ourselves, praise will always lift us higher. It reminds us of God’s authority and greatness. It also reminds us of our purpose and puts things into perspective for us.

Everything we say and do should glorify and honor the Lord Jesus Christ, and give Him praise! Let everything that has breathe praise the Lord!

Jesus, Our Very Present Help

Psalm 46:1 ESV, “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.”

The Lord is always present with us. He’s there to help us. He will give us the strength we need daily, and will protect us from harm. As you you face this new day, remember He is your refuge. There is no tribulation that will come your way that He is not aware of. There is no trial you must endure that He cannot carry you through.

May your heart be filled with joy, peace, and comfort as you rejoice in our Risen Savior. Jesus is our living hope and He will never fail us.

Praise The Lord!!

Psalm 146:1-2 NIV, “Praise the LORD. Praise the LORD, my soul. I will praise the LORD all my life; I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.”

There is so much that God has done. We have countless reasons to offer Him our praise. It is so refreshing to take time out to meditate on His goodness, and give Him thanks. It doesn’t matter what is going on in our lives or the world around us, He is worthy of all our praise.

It’s such a blessing to be able to look up to Jesus and praise His holy name. Let everything that has breath praise the Lord (Psalm 150:6)! I pray that God’s love would fill your heart today, and overflow from your heart into songs of praise.

I Will Exalt You My God

Psalm 145:1 NLT, “I will exalt you, my God and King, and praise your name forever and ever.”

No matter what is going on in our lives we can look up to our God and give Him praise. He is our Strong Rock, He will never fail us. He is our Great Hope, He will never disappoint us. He is our Faithful Father, He will never abandon us.

His love for us will endure forever.

He is our Peace when we are anxious. He is our Strength when we are weak. He is our Joy when we are discouraged. He is our Fullness when we feel empty…

In His presence is fullness of joy, and eternal pleasures forever more. Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Let us praise His name forever and ever.

In the name of Jesus. Amen.
