Why we give Praise
This week I’ve focused on praise with my blogs. It’s critical that we fight our battles while keeping our attention and focus on the One who can actually carry us through our circumstances.
Praise goes beyond our circumstances…and here’s one of my favorite verses about it. Bottom line, you and I can be having a horrible day, difficult season or just crazy year, but God is still to be praised. Look what He’s done for us. How can we be silent, no matter what else is going on around us?
“But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.” (1 Peter 2:9-10 NIV)
