If we take the time to examine the journey of our lives, we will quickly see that we have been through some amazing things. We have had some bad days, but we have also had some incredibly good days. We have seen things we never thought we would have seen, and we have gone through some things we never thought we would have to go through, and we made it out. All the experiences of our lives were possible because The Lord has been with us.
Through our good and bad days The Lord has been with us every step of the way, and He deserves all the praise that we could ever give Him, because He has been so good to us. The Scripture reminds us that, from the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the Lord’s name is to be praised. I encourage you today to praise the name of The Lord, because He is worthy to be praised. Give The Lord all the praise that you can muster up as you go throughout this day, because His name is worthy to be praised.
If you are having a wonderful day and everything is going the way you planned, praise The Lord. If you are having a horrible day, praise The Lord because even what seems horrible to you, could have been worst if The Lord was not with you. From the time you wake up in the morning, until the time when your head hits your pillow at night, The Lord’s name is worthy to be praised.
Do not allow a bad day or a bad circumstance to stifle your praise, press through it, and praise The Lord. Come what will and come what may I am going to praise The Lord through all of it. Since I will praise The Lord at all times I have no doubt, “It’s My Year To Get My Thing From My God!”
Lord I will praise you through my good and my bad. I will praise you with tears in my eyes and a smile on my face. I love you Lord and I will praise you always. In Jesus name, Amen.
